take a look at their latest social media post.....
That was cringe-worthy embarrassing, so much so that the department that trumpets “transparency” removed it.

Transparency, but only when it’s woke/politically correct, and makes us look good. What a joke.

On at least three occasions I can recall people, well, all were old women, asking if I HAD to keep the car running and I should turn it off. I politely pointed out that there was a need because I had to keep the radio operating and didn't want to drain the battery and in the appropriate season would point out that the A/C or heat was keeping me AND the equipment in the interior of the car at a good temperature so that they could function properly.

Then I pepper sprayed them while yelling obscenities and cursing their nosiness. I NEVER once physically assaulted them and left them with a business card of an officer I didn't like.

Ok, the second part isn't true. But it makes a good story!
