Two sets of laws

Here we go again. Another deputy (Salisbury) is charged with assault and gets a paid vacation, although the sheriff's department calls it administrative leave with pay.

This is crazy. Get paid for hitting a woman? What's more crazy is, where are all these women's groups who are against abuse and violence? Maybe they are afraid the rest of the brave officers of the law and order are looking for a paid vacation, too.

These men of the law are supposed to uphold the law and set examples. Nice, teach our young it's OK to break the law or hit women. Just make sure you have a badge and gun, otherwise you will lose your job, get no pay and go to jail.

But, in reality, there are two sets of laws, one for us and one for the police.
