The fact that sheriffs are beholding to the people through election is both an advantage and a disadvantage.

No man with that much flair on his uniform is right in the head.

To remember, and then go back to the ledgers and the commuter train, that was impossible. He knew he would eat his heart out if it ever came to that."

You're not kidding about the flair, I look at his uniform and think he could pick up some part time work at TGIF.

He does seem to have a lot on his dress uniform, doesn't he? I saw a couple of posts on Twitter that suggested he was a candidate for Stolen Valor because he was "trying to look like a soldier," which I thought was pretty stupid. But I don't get all the geegaws and ribbons and such.
