Good morning, Netizens…
[portions from Spokesman-Review, KHQ]
Well, I’ll be fiddled and diddled!
Spokane Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick was issued a $154 speeding ticket by a Spokane County deputy sheriff over the weekend for driving 13 mph faster than the speed limit.
She was in an unmarked car heading for a picnic when she was pulled over on Upriver Drive in her unmarked police car.
“He told me I was speeding … I said, ‘Then you’ve gotta write me the ticket,’ ” Kirkpatrick told KHQ. “I didn’t give him an option to not write me a ticket.”
Kirkpatrick apologized to the citizens of Spokane and the mayor, KHQ reported.
I remember a number of off-duty Spokane Police Detectives who have been pulled over, but instead of accepting a speeding ticket, have shown the nice officer their badges, and thus received no ticket.
“It’s a professional courtesy,” one of them said, when asked about the situation.
I could name names but then someone would have to shoot or Taser me.
Nice job being honest, Chief! You occasionally amaze even me.
