Jeezus. Look at this fuckin' drunk. Oh, sorry. Is that you Chief?
Ooops. Make that ex-police chief Russell Leach since he resigned four days after being involved in a DUI wreck after leaving Club 215, a Colton, CA titty bar on the night of Super Bowl. Unspecified medical reasons were cited for the resignation. I'll make a diagnosis. He's a fucking alcoholic.
After Russ collided with several obstacles including a fire hydrant, he then blew through a light and shredded the tires on his city owned (as in your, the taxpayers) vehicle. As Russ's luck would have it he was eventually stopped by a unit of his own Riverside coppers, who treated Russ as you would treat your own boss if you found him drunkenly boning your girlfriend while stealing money from her purse. With leniency and understanding, of course. So much so, that City Manager Brad Hudson said that it appeared Leach "was provided treatment beyond what other motorists would be afforded in similar circumstances." Oh, really? Fucked up driving at 3:00 AM, crashing your car, the reek of alcohol noted by the detaining officers but no field sobriety test and no recommendation for further action. Yeah, I do think that Joe Citizen may have faced just a bit more hassle than good ol' Chief Leach.
At least after the investigation by the California Highway Patrol now private citizen Leach had to plead out to misdemeanor DUI. The sentence? 30 days on house arrest. Whoop-de-doo. Do you think it might be possible to get liquor and strippers delivered right to your door in Riverside?
Chivas Regal, prescription drugs and lap dances from topless tramps? Slaps on the wrist and a pension probably somewhere in the six figures.
It is good to be Chief.
Russ, you're 62 years old. Time to give up the booze, the pills
and the titty bars. Grow the fuck up.
Class?? Class?? Open your History Text to page....uh....page...uh...where were we? Uh...oh, shit. Fuck it. Let's just watch a goddam DVD.
Tonya Neff, 48, is a teacher at Toro Canyon Middle School in Thermal, California (Riverside County). Drunk and high on pills in the middle of the teaching day, Tonya was arrested for child endangerment. The child endangerment charge seems a little off the wall to me. If I had been one of the kids in Ms. Neff's class that day the only thing that would have been a danger is that I might fall out of my desk chair laughing my ass off that my plastered, pill popping teacher was staggering around the room attempting to slur out the day's lesson.
The pride of the Thermal, California school system.
The name of the town tells you all you need to know. It's hot. And dry. And when it's hot and dry (and boring) a lady can get a powerful thirst. Stuck in some goddam dusty little shitwater town in the middle of nowhere in the Inland Empire. They ought to cut the lady some slack. Its not like she was out having sex with one of her students in a meth lab.
