On the local news today.
Two police men pulled a motorist over on Hwy 65 at Fort Deposit and robbed him. The motorist apparently reported it and the officers are in jail. I never did trust the law.

Alabama, I guess you know them just like do. I get disgusted when they call the house wanting donations for the law enforcement fund. What we need is some donations to the farmers.

Heck once one of ours in uniform and in our town's marked police car loaded up a fertilizer spreader (one of the little plastic push cart deals) at the Sears store in Pell City (he was there too testify in court) and drove off without paying. Naturally someone saw him. He got prosecuted and eventually convicted too.

Lawmen have power. Some are straight shooters and decent people. The ones that are not, shame the best. I have had some good buddies that were Deputy Sheriff's and very decent folk.

Around here the Highway Patrol is good, our Sherif and deputies are good, but a these cops in these little towns about 99% need to be taken out and shot.

Recently it appears that many have turned into nothing more than tax collectors who just write traffic citations for the smallest offense. If you drive on I-75 you will notice lots of small town cops collecting taxes rather than actually doing police work in their towns. I'm thankful I live in a small town off the beaten path where everyone still knows each other. The other day I ran a stop sign at the railroad tracks at the same time a policeman did. We just waved and smiled at each other. (train is only permitted to run the tracks 2 days a week and this was a no run day)
