Clark: WSP’s Bumbling Warrants Apology To Fireman

Is there anything wimpier than a wimp with a badge? Jeff DeVere, to be specific.

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.
