    Inticed by a free car, now impeached !

    In South Florida, the Dade County Sheriff was just voted out of office for accepting a free luxury SUV for a year+ (or similar car) and not declaring it in his taxes...

    >> Here is a link to the story <<

    Ohh man.

    You need to go back and read the article. According to it, the man is the Miami Police Chief, not the Dade County Sheriff. And he wasn't "voted out of office", he received a vote of "no confidence" by the police union.

    Still.

    He's out and one of the reasons is because he took a car for free ...


    The point of the thread is that his downfall was the car...

    His downfall was his greed, the car just happened to be the object of it. I didn't read who supplied it. That would be interesting to know.

    But he's an amateur. Here's police corruption Arkansas style.

    I realize that most police departments are honest and have good integrity. It's the exceptions like this that make news though.

    Yeah, the Broward County Sheriff Jenne is in much worse shape than Timoney. Timoney still has a job, Jenne is out of job, owes a bunch of taxes and will go to jail.
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

    For real, one of our local sheriffs is doing time for assassinating his successor.
    Petty tax fraud, pffftt, hit squads and a hail of bullets is how to really make your peers look badly.

    The few I've gotten to know close up and personal seem to follow the pattern described by Alex Comfort in "Authority and Delinquency in the Modern State"
    Basically I didn't see much difference in attitude between the cops and the robbers except maybe the cops were smart enough to become cops.

    I was afraid that some people might become angered if this became a cop-bashing thread.

    Speaking of police, and to speak well of them for a change, I waved to a member of the Phoenixville Bike Patrol on Saturday evening downtown:



    I think it's pretty neat our local borough has a bike patrol. Now if only the business district had bike racks....

    you beat me to the greed line - but you have it exactly right

    Re: AK corruption - what do you expect from the state that gave us bill and billary ?

    Orlando FL (I live near Tampa FL) has bicycle patrols in their downtown nightclub area on weekends, and they write a lot of jaywalking tickets!!! I think they also target "bad boys" in cars, etc because they are much less noticable to a fool misbehaving in a car, but the patrol cars are usually only a block or so away!
