Also on Friday, board president Paula Maes, who made the motion to keep the police department status quo, said she had been misunderstood.
She said she actually recommended the adoption of the commission and the superintendent’s recommendations to allow officers to carry guns.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph people. I’m taking today, Saturday, off to rub some horses’ ears, and vegetate (this working four straight days in a row is murder), but just can’t let the above quote pass by without comment. At the same time, I find myself pretty much incapable of comment as I am utterly awestruck by how….oh I’m looking for a word other than stupid…I want to be nicer…but I can’t think of one…stupid Board President Maes appears in today’s Journal story. It’s embarrassing. And the APS faux cops’ sick-out is embarrassing. And it’s only the first week of school, for Jesus, Mary and Joseph’s sake….
I gotta go pet some horses. Otherwise something is getting broken, smashed and thrown through a window here, pronto.
P.S.: Did I mention Maes is the Board President, yet? Can anybody get this woman a “Robert’s Rules of Order”?
