Police Chief Suspended for Meeting With Sheriff Joe on His Own Time

Moonbattery

The ultimate honor for a patriot is to be a pariah among liberals. This story gives an idea of the extent to which this honor has been achieved by America’s toughest sheriff, Joe Arpaio:

The Grantville, Georgia Police Chief has been suspended for a week – without pay – merely for visiting Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio during his vacation.

Chief Doug Jordan and his wife planned a recent trip to Arizona to celebrate their wedding anniversary. They had honeymooned there 31 years ago. They paid for the trip and its expenses themselves.

While there, Jordan thought it would be a great idea to see if he could meet with Arpaio. He was honored when Arpaio agreed to do so.

“I meet with people from all over the country,” said Arpaio. “I have an open door policy, and he wanted to see me along with his lovely wife. He wanted to pick my brain and was hoping to go back to his home and fight the drug problems there.” Arpaio was a DEA official for 25 years in Argentina, Turkey, Mexico and Arizona; and 20 years fighting Mexican cartels as Maricopa Sheriff, so he knows a thing or two about fighting crime.

Following their meeting, Jordan expressed his hopes to establish Grantville’s own drug team. He also expressed interest in having some of his officers travel to Arizona for training.

This did not sit well with moonbats among the city council. Barked council member Johnny Cooks:

“I was not very pleased by it. I was not in support of it. I am not in support of this kind of news by police officers representing the Grantville uniform without the council or city manager’s approval.”

Consequently,

After a closed personnel session at Monday’s Grantville City Council meeting, Jordan was suspended for a calendar week without pay for violating the city manager’s policy of reporting anything that is not routine. The city council voted 2-1 to suspend Jordan, while 2 of its members, including the mayor himself, were also on vacation.

Characteristically, Sheriff Joe has offered to travel to Georgia to defend his fellow law enforcement professional.

The good news for Grantville is that it should now have no trouble acquiring federal funds, given how vehemently Arpaio is hated by the Obama Regime for enforcing immigration law.

  1. Joe Arpaio is a great man.
    If Mr. Cooks understands Sicilian, I would like to tell him, “Suspend this!”
    (Guess where my hand is?)

    • Since when is it wrong for one sheriff to meet with another?

      • Never was! In fact, if a suspension resulted, then the Chief should be on salary all the way out to Arizona and all the way back home on overtime, with all expenses paid.

      • If he had been charged with a shooting, he would be on paid leave but meeting with another member of law inforcement gets him suspended without pay. Yea, sounds like BS to me.

      • Liberal screw job.
        Problem is, in many communities, the Police Chief job is political and not through the ranks via civil service.
        The National Chiefs of Police should step in.
        Cooks must have some skeleton in his closet and that is what scared him, when the Chief met with Arpaio.
