From AJC.com today, 4/10/2007: Sheriff Gives Himself a Ticket GREEN BAY, Wis. â€” Brown County Sheriff Dennis Kocken didn't have to write himself a ticket. But he says it was the right thing to do. Kocken issued himself a ticket March 27 for an unsafe lane change, three weeks after he had rear-ended a suspected speeder... ...The ticket marks the second citation in seven months that a state law enforcement officer assessed to himself. In September, Chief Dick Knoebel of the Kewaskum police department wrote himself a $235 ticket for passing a stopped school bus.... MY QUESTION: Did these officers disarm themselves for the purpose of "officer safety"? Did they run their duty weapon's serial number through the NCIC database to see if they were possibly reported stolen? Did they return their guns to themselves in a plastic bag with all the rounds loose, and not re-load them until they'd driven away from the scene?
