I guess the only place Mason could find people who didn't know he was an a$$ was Florida retirees. I guess the people from Florida need to make our little town like the one they moved here to get away from..and soon they will.
Unlike the previous Sheriff, Sheriff Mason is not afraid to surround himself with competent individuals. Let's face it if you were a college graduate with an advanced degree the previous Sheriff didn't want you around because you would pose a threat! Now lets look at the potential hiring pool in UC. If you want to hire somebody with LE background that has more than a HS diploma you would either have to hire from outside the County or hire retired LE that now live in UC. Simple choice from my perspective. In the future I believe you will see UC Deputies obtaining Bachelor and advanced degrees in Criminal Justice because there will be an emphasis placed on education by the new Sheriff.
Finally, don't be so ugly towards retired LE from FL. I'm 100% positive that they will be making a fraction of what they were when they retired. So we are getting educated trained and obviously dedicated individuals at a bargain price. Win for UC!
