Wow. It goes to show that even the philosophical cop needs to be careful thinking “this” or “that” about political types. In general, my beliefs run to the “moderately” republican. That means that mong my colleagues, I am considered a hard-core left wing liberal. I digress.
I also followed the career of Sheriff Mike Corona out in Orange County, CA. He was a big republican star (recall that Sheriffs are elected.) He was seen as a possible senator, governor, vice president — you get the picture. He also seemed to be as clean as they come.
Until this front page news from California.
Innocent until proven guilty, I know. But it can’t be good that people are taking deals left and right to testify against him. This is why elected law enforcement officials make no sense to me. It just doesn’t pass the stink test. What do you think?
