Former Sheriff Put in Jail Named After Him

Colorao lawman Patrick Sullivan, a former "Sheriff of the Year," found himself in jail named after him when cops arrested him for offering meth for sex:

Colorado lawman Patrick Sullivan, 68 — handcuffed, dressed in an orange jail uniform and walking with a cane — watched Wednesday as a judge raised his bail amount to a half-million dollars and sent him to the Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. Detention Facility.

The current sheriff, Grayson Robinson, who worked as undersheriff for Sullivan from 1997 until he took over the job in 2002, said the department was shocked and saddened at his arrest. [...]

Sullivan's arrest has many in suburban Denver's Arapahoe County where he held sway for nearly two decades wondering what happened to the tough-as-nails lawman they once knew — a law officer known for his heroism in saving two deputies and for his concern about teenage drug use.

What Mitch said. We take the ladies out for dinner and a movie in order to get 'some'. Why give the money to the theater and the restaraunt when you can just give directly to the lady. You get the same result.

I caught a glimpse of heaven last night
Through a crack in a mirror that fractalized the light
A saint is a sinner, a sinner is a saint
They're just the cloaks we hide behind
A cartoon in the brain
