Dirty. This whole county's "justice" system is trash.....and cops wonder why they're known as "pigs". Double standard anyone?

Just because I refused to blow -- the first time in recent memory -- doesn't mean I'm drunk and need convicted. Anyone else would've been let go like me. I don't use my badge and gun to get out of blowing. Quite the opposite. I offer breathlyzers to anyone that wants to put it in their mouth and huff and puff until you blow it to kingdom come. Yep, I just said come.

I don't see what the big deal is. I got arrested for hooking, meth, a DUI, child endangerment, stripping in a public place (the mall parking lot), and solicitation of a minor (the judge's son). That was all in one hour's work, and the charges were dismissed after I gave a penetrating oral deposition to the state's attorney in the courthouse restroom. It smacks of favoritism that you would complain of a sheriff getting the same treatment as me! Shame on you. Leave the man alone. What happens in the privacy of his cruiser during working hours is nobody's business but his, mine, and the neighbor kids videotaping on their cell phones!
