My point exactly, only cops

My point exactly, only cops get in trouble when they mess up. Everyone else, it's just a bump on the road for them> What a joke.

You have to hunt for the

You have to hunt for the fact that this man is an attorney. If he had been a law enforcement officer or member of a LEO's family you would have seen paragraph after paragraph about that fact. Media bias?? You don't reckon!?! WWAY bias?? Could be. Will this be published? Doubt it.

The headline states that he

The headline states that he is an attorney. The first line of the article states that he is an attorney.

You're Fired!

He needs to be dismissed from his position IMMEDIATELY. How can he represent and uphold the laws he is tasked with in representing the county, if he is a lawbreaker himself!

Maybe Trey...

will represent himself and avoid the legal fees.

I can hear that song...

Just like Cat Stevens and Sam Cooke used to sing:

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I've got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now, how I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in an awful way
