In rejecting police body-worn cameras and dashboard cameras, St. Johns County Sheriff for sixteen years DAVID SHOAR said in 2016 debate with former Deputy Maynard, "I reject the false narrative that cops need to be watched."
SHOAR legally changed his name from "HOAR" in 1994.
Our Founding Fathers knew better than the likes of SHOAR/HOAR. They believed that "if men were angels," there would be no need for government. They believed in checks and balances, and resisted oppression with "manly firmness." (I was once in trial against EPA, and its two women defense mouthpieces told the ALJ that my word choice was "sexist." So I told the Court the line is in the Declaration of Independence.)
The unfolding saga of Adair, Iowa Police Chief BRADLEY WENDT makes me wonder where the Rule of Law Wendt. I groan at this pun, inspired by Tom Hanks line in Apollo 13:
JIM LOVELL - Ah, Guenter Wendt! [with heavy German accent] I wonder where Guenter went!
The Police Chief of Adair, Iowa: when it comes to criminal activity, he's at the head of his class.
Or as my Irish-German grandmother would say, "he's typical of his type." Reminds me of the Tennessee Sheriff who had me sued for libel, and ended up paying me from his own funds, who took payoffs from bail bondsmen and sold illegal drugs from the evidence locker.
