Seven cops, no waiting

Seven cops in town, one shoots the fire chief in court, and the fire chief can't remember his name.

Can you say 'bullsh*t", boys and girls?  Knew you could.

 

The good ole boys got themselves guns and badges and could arrest all them dang'rous felons doing 46 in a 45 zone.

Listen up, John Mellencamp.  Sometimes 'Small Town' isn't all church socials and lunch at the Chatterbox Cafe.

Naming a town Jericho is just asking for trouble.

Lucky for them there wasn't an atomic war? ;-)

The dynamics of corruption in small towns are different than in big cities. In a small town, corruption is harder to hide, but when it gets entrenched can be more dangerous because there are fewer total social units, hence the percentage of those corrupted can approach unity. The reverse applies: small towns can also be much LESS corrupt than big cities, because a single strong and decent leader can have a greater personal effect.

Looks like that particular town drew the short end of the stick where leadership was concerned, and its town government is in the process of shaking itself apart in consequence. In fact, based on what the Sheriff said, it may more or less be entering the local-governmental equivalent of "receivership!"

By Mogg's tuna-scented breath, that would seem to be a good thing. "T'row da bums out" may be the only answer for an organization as corrupt as this...

Whu? Did my comment get deleted or simply fail to post? Hmp. What I said was,

"An unarmed guy gets shot, the shooter will not face charges and the victim might be cited with a misdemeanor? This story is wrong on so many levels that it would be hard to write a screenplay about a police department that bad. The administration is rotten to the core... and I wonder how high the rot goes."

I'll be interested to see what happens, if anything.

Probably because he was too lazy to catch the bullet early on. After all one of the officers suffered a grazing wound to his finger, which - as everybody knows - is much more severe than a bullet stuck in the hip.
