This morning, I went skunking around asking stray cops if they could provide some off-the-record background information on the situation at the Asheville Police Department. I am pleased to say that all were extremely professional. Only by reading between the lines of some of the comments could I infer that they were used to nonsense in high places, regardless of the regime, and they were not going to let shenanigans interfere with their efforts to serve the community.
