Being a cops wife, by no means do I think ALL cops are good, righteous and above board! And I doubt you will find any other wife that feels that way. You need to be thankful there are men and woman out there willing to give their own life for YOU! I highly doubt you would be willing to lay your life down for a complete stranger. Since you are such a perfect person I expect that you will never wreck, get a ticket or for any reason need to call 911. And I pray for your sake if you do for some reason need to call the cops and need them there fast that the only available cop isn't on the other side of the county 30 minutes away from you. Respect what they do, I don't see you out there doing it.<quoted text>Cops wife is just that, a cops wife, living in a world where there are no bad cops, all cops are righteous and above board. Sadly thats not true, sure there are some good cops, most happen to be state troopers but the requirements to be a trooper are much higher than those of your average city or county cop we read so much about. Syay out the bushes.

Some of you people are clueless. Next time you have an emergency, handle it yourself. You would certainly not want an officer to exceed the speed limit while responding to you if you are being beaten, robbed, or the list goes on. Get a life and be real. This officer's tire blew out. Remember that if it happens to you and you have an accident.

If and when I have an emergency, can you please try to get there ASAP. I DO NOT mind if you speed. However, if it is not MY emergency, drive the maximum posted limit only and obey each and every traffic rule.......

Well Said Cops Wife 2! And Thank you and Tired of the Crying, your comments are very appreciated. It gets very disheartening when all you ever hear is negative about our husband's careers. And for those who think they don't have a heart - you are wrong! Believe it or not these derrogatory comments DO impact them! It makes them question why they work for a public that generally hates them, for so much risk and so very little reward. I can tell you they DO NOT DO IT FOR THE MONEY! In fact there are several officers that have to work multiple jobs to support their families, because the pay is insufficient. I don't care what career you are in, there are always going to be a few bad apples to spoil the bunch. Sadly the media always grabs onto those stories and they are always headline news. It would be nice to read about how many of our law enforcement officers go over and above their call of duty! They surely don't do it for praise or recognition!

I agree ACSD is understaffed. A 900 sq mile County , needs more coverage. 12 hour shifts seem a bit long for the job, but if they prefere that I understand.I never gripe about my local taxes, heck they are dirt cheap for what we have access for recreation and schools and such.
I do wish the "cops" would police themselves better to weed out the bad apples you mention.
I do wish after weeks of investigation the "cops" would not come back with speculation.
It is a ctach 22 many times.

Is this the same Deputy Sholes who hit a SUV responding to a call in 2009?And the same deputy who hit a man on a moped in 2011?Might be a good deputy but he sure as hell shouldn`t be driving a county car if this is his third crash in the past 4 years.He couldn`t buy a driving job in the private sector with that kind of record.Not knocking law enforcement,just poor drivers.Hope my loved ones aren`t on the road the next time this happens.

There are several Sholes that work for ACSO. Counsin and brothers I believe. It could have been any of there. If it is the same deputy you make a good point.
