Does anyone writing blogs even know officer Waite? If they do they know tht he is a hard working,faith based, man with integrity.
Separation of church and state ring a bell? What the hell does having faith have to do with making him a competent police officer?

I hate to break it to you, being a cop isn't the bastion of honor it once was. Going to church and working as a police officer do not automatically make you a good person by any stretch of the imagination.

Is there perhaps some significance in your choice of a religious holiday, to renew this particular crusade?

Let me get this strait. If you live in Santa Fe your above the Law? If you get arrested which would require probable cause, you can sue? If you refuse a lawful order from law enforcement you can ignore it? Are Santa Feans different than the rest of the law abiding world? Frivolus, petty,spoiled, children you are. Grow up already.

I was personally manhandled by one of officer worth's cohorts and slammed into a business window for playing music in the square without a permit. The ticket I recieved claims I only had a weed pipe, although I was busted with almost three ounces in front of fifty witnesess. They let me off for their own well-being (since boundaries had obviously been overstepped and recorded on camera)
