Last week, I wrote about a Floyd County Sheriff’s Deputy who emerged from the county dispatch center at the Court House while my Jeep’s car alarm was blasting away because of a short circuit. He looked over at the Jeep with its flashing lights and wailing siren, then got into his patrol car and drove away.

Steve Graham, an investigator with the Sheriff’s Department, told me today that the Deputy was en route to a domestic disturbance call.

Too many people are injured or killed because of domestic fights that go bad. The Deputy was right to put the domestic all above a car alarm that might or might not have been triggered by a thief.

I stand corrected. My apologies to the Deputy and the Sheriff’s Department.
