    maybe someone can explain this to me...
    Politics. Let's say for example, you arrest the Ass't Fire Chief for domestic violence and then the Mayor orders you three times to unhandcuff him, and you refuse (doing what's right and moral), and then the Mayor tells the Police Chief he is going to have the officer fired (you), and that he has the power to do it. In many southern states, law enforcement is at-will and officers can be fired without cause.

    I'm not going to claim to be perfect. And there are a few things I might have done differently. But I trust that I've never sacrificed what's right just because policy might have let me, even doing the right thing would cost me my job.

    I see your point, but in the long run, I'd rather keep my job...stupid stuff like that is petty in the long run...

    How about nailing the Dumb-ass mayor for obstruction and letting him explain it to the voters?
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
