Ho, Boy!

The whole damn department.

HALSTEAD, Kan. (KAKE) — The KBI’s investigation into the Halstead Police Department is ongoing, as a search warrant was served at City Hall Friday.

At least one agent with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation was at Halstead City Hall Friday, but no information into the warrant was made available.

Last month, KAKE News learned that the KBI had been asked to investigate the Halstead Police Department at the request of Harvey County Attorney David Yoder.

Then earlier this month, Halstead city leaders held an emergency meeting but entered into executive session for “matters deemed privileged in the attorney-client relationship.”

The County Attorney’s Office has since been waiting for the KBI to wrap up their investigation before they can make a decision on any further action.

Sounds more criminal than anything else. The Feds would be involved in most anything else, I’d guess.

One time, a long time back, I had cause to visit an Air Field near this retired person. My car didn’t have a base sticker and I had to stop in for a visitors pass.

The only person in the shack was a TSgt, armed. He checked my I.D. and told me that was the only thing he’d ever wanted out of the Air Force, that gray I.D. Card. I said nothing. His cell phone went off and he started telling his wife the charges against him didn’t matter.

The woman was just talking, you see, and he hadn’t meant anything by having sex with her and he sure hadn’t intended for his military rank to intimidate her into having sex, even if she had been in his charge during that time.

I left the shack knowing that things weren’t going to go well for the man and wondering how hard the wife was going to be on him – provided she didn’t divorce him before the investigation was complete.

One wonders, sometimes, given that at the time it took twenty years of work to earn that card,, what the hell possesses people that throw it away. Almost, in all cases, the majority of the benefits they strove to accrue.

Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
