You guys are probably onto something. He should have assumed that she would just give him a really close shave, "rolando." "How bad did she cut him?" is a very valid question. If she didn't at least severe an artery he should have given her a warning after the first slash. I'm sure she didn't really want to hurt him. Any well trained peace officer will tell you that an edged weapon is absolutely no threat and should be considered harmless. It's all a conspiracy theory, "Haiku." The meth problem is highly over-publicized. An "independent investigation" would probably reveal the truth, which is that this poor citizen was only under the influence of a triple espresso. Calling in the TBI and allowing their lab to analyze resulting samples was clearly a token gesture. Everyone knows that TBI scientists make minimum wage and that all their personnel would never bring to light any information that might make a deputy sheriff look bad, lose his job or face criminal prosecution. You two are geniuses. Will you be teaming up for any speaking engagements anytime soon? Please share your wisdom, great gurus.
