Follow up on the local cops

Saturday's Post-Dispatch had two articles about the cops mentioned in last weekend's post about A bad week for local police.

Brent Darrow's antagonist, Sgt. James Kuehnlein, has been fired from the St. George force and the St. George police chief has been talking to his officers.

St. George officers get polite reminder

ST. GEORGE - Police Chief Scott Uhrig has given his eight officers a reminder about courtesy - and some words of warning - after one of his sergeants got fired for berating a motorist on tape.

"They know to be polite and courteous," the chief said, "and they've been advised, 'Stay on your toes. We don't know how many other Brett Darrows there are out there.'"

Here's a suggestion, Chief: take the safe course and assume we're all 'Brent Darrows' out here.

The six Jefferson County deputies involved in the barroom brawl were also fired and five of them are appealing those decisions.

HILLSBORO — The appeal process for five of the six deputies who lost their jobs Thursday for their role in a bar fight could take weeks, according to the Jefferson County sheriff's office.

What a stupid thing for Chief Uhrig to say. Either you believe your officers should be courteous or you don't. If you do, then there will be no further incidents like this one; no "staying on your toes" required.

I think my car needs an audio recorder.
