    the Mayor and City Council suddenly got rid of Barney Fife and the rest of the small police force and have contracted with the county to patrol the city.
    This went down so quick that it was a done deal before hand (nothing like small-town, small-time politics), that it's got me pissed off to that angle; even though that this police force did nothing much (woman across the street had a pistol stolen out of her car two weekends ago and the detective told her that "it's almost impossible to lift fingerprints off the plastic case the registration was in". Ms. Slappy, a former criminal justice major, gently told him that that particular plastic was excellent for prints. Five hours later, he came back for the plastic) it was local.
    So should I be worried with no city cops suddenly?

    I'm sorry about our luck, slappy, but I ask you to be more careful in your usage of the word "hooter."

    Don't worry. So you have the county sheriff and deputies patrolling the streets instead of the locals. Half of the municipalities in my county do exactly that. They seem fine.
     
  4. Yeah, but they can pretty much shoot people on sight out there, can't they?

    Only if they're democrats. Not sure why Rocky Anderson is still alive.
     
  6. He has a gift for disguise.

    Ah, but they have to get the bullet out of their shirt pocket, first. By then, most criminals are long gone. It's time, I venture, to 'nip this in the bud!'

    This is also a town that does have a Mayberry festival every summer...

    That would be Mount Airy, N.C.

    I was hoping maybe this was going to be about the dog-collar rematch between Jake Roberts and McNasty, with Sensational Sherry locked in a cage above the ring to keep from interfering.

    That would be wrong, in this particular case, but thanks for trying...we'll just leave it at Parts Unknown...

    A criminal justice major? Well, at least you can justify the handcuffs, now.
