O.K. this is interesting on at least a couple fronts to me.
One, is that I live in the town he is (was) Deputy Sheriff of, and two is that all of the experience I
have with the cops around here tells me
they're all "good ol' boys" who you can approach and actually jabber-jaw with for awhile. No cops motivated by fear around here - maybe drama, or
family-name squabbles, but that's just the way it goes in small towns, lol. Everybody knows everybody here. At least my wife seems to know
That one of our guys could do this, tells me there must be some extenuating circumstances. I'm sure the dog must have at least looked dead and
certainly wasn't moving, if they decided to bury him. They just don't do that kind of satan worshiper thing around here (it really would be the
dumbest thing you could do in this area, lol). And the fact that they tried to bury him tells me they respected him in some way, which is entirely
other side of the spectrum from beating a dog to death with a hoe.
As long as we're not getting the whole story, I'm gonna have to side with my hometown fellers around here. From my experience with 'em all, I just
can't get too where the news story is trying to take us. Sue me.
By the way, the county dog pound has been between a rock and a hard place for years now, and it was extremely hot this whole week as well. It
wouldn't surprise me if some kind of dementia related to heat stroke had something to do with this.
I'll let you know, when my wife knows. lol.
ADDITION: Oh wow! I actually know this guy. NO freakin' way he did this maliciously! He's the nicest old fella you'll ever meet. I don't think he
carries a gun in fact. All he does all day is take good-behavior county prisoners in a big van (with trailer) and clean up the area (mow grass, clean
up lots, clean sidewalks and street gutters). It makes PERFECT sense that something related to heat was going on that day. The day this happened it
got up to a 122° heat index. Although, I still can't picture what must have gone on, and I haven't heard anything with details, I'd bet a whole
month's finances there was NO malice involved whatsoever. No way...
Meh...nevermind...wife just corrected my...wrong guy. Made sense to me tho. Oh well. We'll see.
