*The arrogance of authority*
A drugs squad officer stopped at a farm, and talked with an old farmer.
He told the farmer, “I need to inspect your farm for illegally grown drugs.”
The farmer said, “Okay, but don’t go in that field over there…”, as he pointed out to the location.
The drugs squad officer verbally exploded saying, “Mister, I have the authority of the Government with me.”
Reaching into his rear trouser pocket, he removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the farmer.
“See this badge? ! This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish. On any land!! No questions asked or answers given!! Have I made myself clear. Do you understand?”
The old farmer nodded politely, apologized, and went about his chores.
A short time later, the old farmer heard loud screams, looked up, and saw the drugs squad officer running for his life, being chased by the farmer’s big ferocious-looking bull…
With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he’d sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified.
The old farmer threw down his tools, ran to the fence and shouted at the top of his lungs…
_(I just loved this part.)_*”Your badge!! Show him your _BADGE_!!”*
One thought on “The arrogance of authority🤭”
