Annapolis Police Assist Man With Proposal

  • Cute? Check.engagement ring
  • Fun? Check.
  • Unique? Check.
  • Romantic? Check.
  • Wise use of city resources?  Not so sure.

The Capital ran a heart tugging story about a former DC cop that was engaged in Annapolis recently. It involved several uniformed city officers, at least one patrol car, and a fake arrest.

I am on the fence. What do you think?

PS–Congratulations to the couple!

    You know, we always think the police should be doing something more productive like “getting the bad guys”, but then we complain when we don’t see the police, or when the police officers don’t seem approachable, nice, or human. If there wasn’t a priority call for service at the time, what’s the big deal, the police presence in the area at time may have prevented a crime. The firefighters catch grief, too nowadays. Used to be a thrill for a kid to see the firefighters buying the dinner supplies at the grocery store, to see the human side of our public servants. Now we look crosseyed at them, wondering how much fuel was used at taxpayers expense to drive the fire engine to the store. We have to ask ourselves, what do we really want our public servants to do… Be in the community interacting with the public, or tied strictly to their most basic functions…
