WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES
Normally I handle bad cops in the news or in a separate segment, but this case deserves a much more detailed examination, and it really rustles my jimmies.
You’ve got to be a special kind of law enforcement officer to have two lawsuits filed against you in the same day. Hamilton County Deputy Daniel Wilkey is that kind of special. The Tennessee law enforcement officer managed to violate rights against enough people that two of them retained lawyers. This suggests Deputy Wilkey violates rights on a regular basis, but maybe not egregiously enough to merit a lawsuit in every case.
