This week we ve has been a bad one for a select few over bearing police officers here. I dont want to knock the good officers that serve the public but there are a few here whose gen pools need chlorine. A younger fella who had 2 much to drink was stopped and the officer cuffed him and put him in the car. The officer was talking to a county deputy and the 22 year old had said some thing smart and the arrestin officer pepper sprayed him and shut the door. The deputy tried to get him to wet the mans eyes but he claimed thats what he needed. When he finally got to jail My neighbor that is a deputy and a former nurse noticed the mans eyes were swelled shut and that he was having difficulty breathing. He found out that what had hppened and reported it to the sheriff. The boy they got had a clean record he just messed up. The serriff is prosecuting the City officer for assualt and uneccesary use of potentially dangerous force because he was already subdued and in the car and had cooperated. The officer has been here for 3 weeks from Kansas.
A few months ago a younger cop from the same county in Golden had been transferred for harrassing a person hed went to school with by claiming he had drugs and caused him to be checked then he bragged over the radio about the bogus call and how funny it was lettin the dog in his car for 3 hours. He got the count in a law suit over tht. This week in his new location one town over there was a comotion, Ithe county hospital is in my town and they had in the paper the officer had been injured in an accident with his own gun. I told a friend that worked part time with him that he was probably practicing his quickdraw in the mirror. He got the funniest look on his face. He said howd you know. I told him hes the modern Barney Fife. My friend told me a 15 year old had stopped by the police station which consists of 2 cops and was interest in being an officer one day. well the younger officer kept taking about his skills let the kid hold the gun and aim it and so on. THe officer had removed his clip/magazine for safety. Then it got on the subject of how to pull a gun and quick drawing. the officer was infront of the big mirror when he did it and shot through his thigh and it exited and went in his calf muscle. He also had broken police procedure by having a bullet in the chamber. even though he hadnt been on call and another thing was handing a 15 year old a loader gun. This fella if county known now lol. I think if I were him suicide or identity change would really look good. Around here wer get alot of over zelous officers and hot heads. Still we have a majority of good officers.

seems like alot of them want to be like Dirty Harry or Robo Cop. I wish we could go back to just having a constable. Just my 2 cents.

My cousin moved back here and hes a town officer, hes appalled at the way things have been done. When I was 15 you couldnt have a decent saturday night out because of the police harrassing us and lying about the town curfew. If one pulled you over the other 4 on duty would stop and harass you. Some even took friends along. That was ok with me but they also let them get in your face while questioning you about wreckless drivbing. Most of that has stopped with the new Chief of police now. THe fellow shooting himself tickled me because I just remebers the Andy Griffith show where barney shot himself with the quickdraw. THe other officer looked surprised when I said that.

It's called the Darwin Effect Taylor. Now if only he can only get them return shots up above the shoulders he might get the Darwin Award.
Later Bob
