    I read this story and these are the thoughts that came to me.

    1. That Sheriff is crooked and well - not very mentally stable. One of those wannabe's with a superhero complex. He should be in jail and definitely not in that job.

    2. $1,000 for four days of TCC training? That is more than I pay for a YEAR of private lessons every week- And group classes, and other instructors to ask advice of during the many hours my school is open for training. :jawdrop: And I know I don't go to the cheapest school (good value- but not the cheapest.)

    You can't learn a MA in a several day seminar, you need to practice over time with monitoring by a qualified instructor. You can only develop a little in 4 days. Better to spread out teachings with regular lessons over time- hopefully not with taxpayer dollars.

    3. With all due respect, I think the following statement in the article is beyond stupid. Citizens won't be getting beat up by police officers because of TCC? :rolleyes: I mean I think I get what he was trying to say, but it didin't come across well - IMO. And in the context of defending someone misusing public funds, it especially doesn't come across well.

    I like the bit about teaching an entire community Taiji so that they can't be beaten up by the police anymore. That's really funny. :D

    Drilling with a loaded firearm is always a good idea too...

    The sheriff sounds like a numpty.

    This is why electing law enforcement is a stupid idea.

    It's just as stupid when we do it, but at least we don't give the PCCs guns.

    A laughed most at the fact the seminar(s) was run by Adam Mizner :D

    Unless he intends on arresting people by chi-blasting through a pepper, he might as well have not bothered.

    Aside from the obvious World Taekwondo Federation moments on the background and antics of the individual concerned it is NOT unusual for a department to expend money on seeking alternative options and additions to an existing UoF strategy. In fact $1000 is pretty low for such enquiries

    Not to say he isn't a flake, but spending money on MA courses is not necessarily inconsistent with SOP's for other agencies
