New Twist: For Your Protection: "Reserve " Cops

Seems like there is an interesting twist to Mr. Reserve Cop: 

"Supervisors at the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office were ordered to falsify a reserve deputy’s training records, giving him credit for field training he never took and firearms certifications he should not have received, sources told the Tulsa World."

Sooooo.….did he forget the difference between a taser and a handgun? And why can't other 73 year-olds get (BUY) new jobs in their fields? Just asking…..

This is one truly great article. I am not even going to change a word for a personal blog…just read, and pass it on.

"And that’s why our state legislature wants ordinary citizens out armed and concealed-carrying, in parks and schools and everywhere else. They don’t have to pay for that, do they? These are volunteers “playing cop,” too

“Oh, I shot him. I’m sorry.” 

This is how civil society dies. It starts by denigrating all things public — public employees, public schools, public servants of all kinds. Make “public” a bad word, tell everyone you can do a better job yourself (or the private sector can)."

As a liberal gal in the same Red State, I have a constant headache from banging it against the wall….daily.

Oh, and this: 
Icing on the cake.
