"My very small hometown was bankrupted by our local sheriff, because for a “small donation” he was selling celebrities and rich people (who lived nowhere near said hometown) licenses to be reserve police officers, which allowed them to conceal carry weapons pretty much anywhere they wanted and even make arrests.
Naturally, when the locals found out what was going on they wanted to know who these reserve officers were, but the sheriff refused to release their names. A couple people filed FOIA requests, the sheriff and city clerk still refused to release the list, the townspeople sued, the sheriff lost in court, the town’s insurance refused to pay the settlement, and the city declared bankruptcy.
BUT as a result of the lawsuit, the names of all of the donors/reserve officers was finally released to the general public. I was in college at the time, and was writing a paper about the situation for one of my classes, and decided to tweet at some of the celebrities who had been reserve officers to see if they’d comment.
And that’s the story of how I got blocked by Kid Rock on Twitter lol. "
