And macomb county isn't exactly lily white clean either. In late 90's police were soliciting girls and having sex with them before arresting them. Also look at former executive sherriff of macomb county a dozen years ago.his son took his job.who knows what else.

The point is that for everyone who gets caught has to suffer consequences. Just like catching speeders.for every one caught hundreds get away with it. But getting caught overlooking credentials makes people wonder about sincerity in jobs.the board never looked into turkia's past well enough and probably were too lazy to look at whose qualifications would fit best. They just listened to her boasting and fell for it and it backfired!

At least Macomb is jumping on this flaw in Wayne County and trying to initiate changes to prevent the same happening there. Some people will still violate the law, but then they have a place to go-jail.
