    One man "department"????

    Didn't know that there were one man "police departments". Pretty sad that this guy gets national attention because he lit up his own wife!

    Texas Chief Allegedly Used Taser on Wife



    The Associated Press


    OAKWOOD, Texas --

    The chief of a small Central Texas town's police department has been fired and jailed for allegedly using a Taser gun on his wife.

    Former Oakwood police chief Oly Ivy is in Leon County Jail in Centerville on Wednesday, charged with aggravated assault. Bond is $100,000.

    Ivy, 30, was arrested near Palestine on Monday. The city council fired him that night.

    Ivy's attorney, Charley Johnson, tells KXXV-TV in Waco that his client "is taking these allegations very seriously." He says he intends for Ivy to "be treated the same as anybody in this situation."

    Ivy was hired in February to be the lone full-time officer in the town of 500 residents about 100 miles southeast of Dallas. The department has two reserve officers.

    It is actually fairly common in small town America. It is scary though.

    Most of them make less than a mcdonalds employee.

    Most of them are also old, bald, fat, semi-retired, and relatively useless. They basically serve as the middleman between a complaintant and the township. The small towns they serve usually have a high concentration of gun ownership, and are therefore relatively crime-free anyway.

    (Not knocking them, the description was a joke based partially in truth. Just pointing out the reason they are payed so little.)

    Plenty of towns in Maine with NO police, and they get along just fine.
