Is there anything wimpier than a wimp with a badge? Jeff DeVere, to be specific. The Washington State Patrol captain appeared at a press conference Tuesday to clear a Spokane firefighter of allegations that he purchased kiddie porn.

If you won’t man up, I will. Todd, I’m sorry. I’m sorry your name was smeared. I’m sorry about the anguish your family endured. I’m sorry for thinking the worst about you. I guess I foolishly assumed our state law enforcers would never pinch a citizen on such a reputation-ruining beef without having more of an airtight, dead-bang case/Doug Clark, SR. More here
