…”past tense” sentence structure with that statement?

Suggestion: He never gave a crap about what he did to receive a paycheck, much less perform as a public servant.

He must not care much about his job.

Thanks WPD for helping keep these drunks off the roads no matter who they are and thanks to Sheriff Smith for sending this guy packing.

You can say what you want but you have no idea. People make mistakes and we learn from them. Negative comments.

Now Christy, committing criminal acts isn’t a mistake. They are choices he made and now must suffer the results.

Putting salt, instead of sugar, into your tea is a mistake. Wearing a blue sock on one foot and a brown sock on the other is a mistake. Drunk driving is a choice.

I guess that is the end of his short career in law enforcement. He knew better, he did it anyway. He lost his job and reputation. He dug his own grave. Bad decision.

We all make mistakes. We just are not all caught.

…he made a choice to break the law and he was caught. Don’t try to excuse bad behavior as a mistake.

Yes we all make mistakes, but the type of mistake one makes leads to different consequences and punishments.

If you speed you are probable only going to get a warning or a ticket and be on your way.

Drinking and driving that is a different story.
