NC: Raleigh police officers join in on a snowball fight and sledding

Via LH

 My grandfather was a big boozer and gambler. Once he was drinking and playing cards with his cronies when the subject of the election for the Raleigh Police Chief came up. Somehow, my grandfather took a bet that he could win it, which he did. However, he resigned after only 18 months, because he said he couldn't keep arresting his best friends, the bootleggers! This was in 1917.


  1. Awesome. That's the face of a good civil servant.
    Hope more stories like this keep popping up!
