Many thanks are in order for the kind words, thoughts, and prayers offered for my now resolved crisis.
The basics are as follows:
1. An off duty cop arrested my daughter yesterday on her son's (my grandson) second birthday and charged her with a Class B Felony.
2. She spent a night in a large urban jail with murderers.
3. She was innocent.
4. The prosecutor's office took one look at the case, said it was BS and threw it out. Charges were dropped immediately.
Now, I have been a huge supporter of law enforcement the biggest part of my life. There is nobody that appreciates the sacrifices they make, by putting their lives on the line, daily. But when a cop thinks he is the law instead of an enforcer of that law, this is what we all get. And what do the good cops get? A much undeserved bad reputation.
The jail has been under the gun for years for overcrowding. In fact, the county has been in federal court over the issue. So last night, she took up valuable space that was needed for criminals, at the taxpayers' expense.
So to sum it all up in a nutshell, I hope the son of a bitch gets a horrible rash.
