Police department resident cat Sarge Butters is removed and the community doesn’t like it — 15 Comments

  1. Benita sent a message saying it’s not exactly like it seems. She’s not on the town board. She doesn’t work for the police. It was a simple message. The fact that she’s been part of this community for years and was voted to her position says something about her character. Instead of everyone speculating things and trying to crucify her; go to the board meeting and get the clarity you want. it’s not her place to fix what 2-3 others did is it?
    I barely know her but I do know she didn’t make any decisions about that cat. Id forgot what a good Christian community we live in where you wait till you know who did kick the cat before you look for scapegoats.

  2. I couldn’t have said it better myself, Michael. Cats are a time-proven, time honored benefit to the workplace environment. The idea to remove him was selfish, misguided and probably singular in genesis. Some ONE didn’t like cats and thought they made the department less masculine, the basis for much of police work and recruitment, which I think is out of step with modern thinking. You know the old saying: the flip side of most police officers is a street thug, and thugs are all about presenting machismo. So it’s probably just one or two old time guys on the town board who made this decision. I don’t even think Sgt. Joe Friday would have kicked a Sgt. Butters out of the L.A.P.D.

  3. Your description was previously incorrect, but the image displays my phone number sir. Just asking for a little courtesy. Thank you.

        • Thanks for that. I think the moral of this part of the story is that IM communications on FB or anywhere else can be converted to images using screenshots and end up on the internet.

  4. Please remove my screenshot conversation from this article. I am not a police officer and this is an unfinished, misunderstood conversation. Thank you.
