Unemployed military veteran who robbed 18 businesses still pursuing police career with agency that arrested him
This one is like something we'd see in our Ask-A-Cop section.
OAKLAND, Calif.—Oakland police say an unemployed U.S. Army veteran they arrested in connection with a string of armed robberies had recently applied to be an Oakland cop—and still says he wants to be one.
Investigators say that 24-year-old Jason Brooks admitted to 18 armed robberies of East Bay businesses since May.
Brooks told them he did the robberies because he needed money for food and rent.
Police say he recently submitted an application to become an Oakland police officer, but did not have a test date scheduled. They added that even after his arrest, he told officers he still would like to join the force.

The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
brought my rifle."

The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
it is just that they know so much that isn't so.

well it is very nice in his world today thats for sure!http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl
We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion
