Don't judge all employees when a few break the rules

By GLADMAN HUMBLES Paducah

EDITOR:

The mayor was partially right. "It could happen anywhere." It has happened everywhere.

There isn't a longtime workplace within the country where employees haven't exercised misconduct or violated the rules. Firefighters and police officers are held to a higher standard, but they, like the best of us, are not always at their best. When one slips, the vast majority of those that didn't slip should not be given the label "those so and so firefighters" or "those so and so cops." You seldom hear about the ones who do their job, mind their business and stay out of trouble.

When a city employee is off duty and not violating the law, those in charge should mind their own business and do their job.

I'm happy the chief didn't catch me when I slipped.
