I almost decided to not update the blog again until Sunday, but like a preacher needs pain…
Remember those developments in Town Center that were never annexed into Columbia? Well, tonight you can finally sleep easy again.
This is strange. Local police are investigating one of there own for allegedly setting off fireworks. I’m usually a strong advocate for fireworks, believing that they bring great joy to the young and young at heart and occasionally help with removal of unwanted fingers. That said, things have been pretty dry around here, and indiscriminately launching roman candles off your balcony doesn’t seem like the most intelligent thing to do. But I’m not here to judge. I’m here to ask what is going on with this:
Police launched the investigation after a 2:20 a.m. incident March 11 in which Officer Kevin Layman admitted to igniting fireworks from the balcony of his apartment, according to a police report on the incident.Maybe the Flier’s cherry picking the report for the best parts, but I’m having trouble seeing why chewing tobacco and a “thesis paper” are even being brought up. Is there something I’m missing? Weird story.
Police also are investigating officers Christopher Williams and James Zamillo in connection with the incident, the report states.
…The police report, which was written by Sgt. Joe Gibbons, mentions that Layman had a "moderate odor of an alcoholic beverage" on his breath and that Zamillo was spitting tobacco into a coffee cup. Gibbons also wrote that the neighbor who called in the complaint had written a "thesis paper" on "ethics" for the University of Baltimore that he was willing to provide to the police department's Internal Affairs Division.
The Flier editorial board notes that politicians are doing things for political gain. All I want to know is who’s going to tell the children?
