Public to Pay for Thompson’s Defense

Officer ruled indigent despite $675,000 home

It’s official.  We, the people, will pay through the nose for the SPD’s blundering.

I make a third of what Thompson makes and my $50,000 home is paid for.  However, maybe I should go out and buy a home worth two-thirds of a million dollars and put it in my wife’s name and then offer up the excuse that I am indigent.

Indigent means "poor, needy, impoverished, poverty-stricken, penniless, destitute." Do you really think someone who lives in a $675,000 home is destitute? Well, maybe if he didn’t make any money. It’s not my fault he bought a home way beyond his needs!

O – I know why I can’t get away with this. I don’t have a wife!
