Arkansas Cop Shoots Fire Chief over TICKETING Dispute

Wow!  The fire chief spoke his mind to the Judge about cops ticketing the citizens of Jericho, Arkansas, and got SHOT for it. 

"You can't even get them to answer a call because normally they're writing tickets," said Thomas Martin, chief investigator for the Crittenden County Sheriff's Office. "They're not providing a service to the citizens."

One man got ticketed for driving  58 mph in his own driveway!

Now ain't that the truth. They are definitely having their problems in Arkansas! So much for law and order, huh. Cops should not be allowed to carry their guns into the courthouses, either. If we have to go through the metal detectors..so should they. And to all of you who are in law enforcement who read this...you may really get ticked about that statement, but think about it. If noone else is carrying a gun into the courthouse...WHY SHOULD YOU??? What's the purpose...Most of you already have tasers...I know judges who wear a gun under their robe. What's the point in that, unless they are afraid of the cops LOL..

Okay, you asked what I think, Betsy LOL...here it comes. I believe that this town has not only a "ticket" problem, but a 'display of power" problem. Did you not hear about the little problem Autauga County had about a week ago? (only about 5 miles from where I live). The 16 year old boy was getting air in his tires, and ended up getting arrested, tased twice, and charged with terrorist threats? I believe that post might have been under the Cops Gone Wild...wait...I think I'll retitle THIS POST...Sequel 2 to Cops Gone Wild...
