there's no sense in going halfway. Another Gazette story:http://www.wvgazette.com/section/News/2006072027/
The shortie:"Charleston Mayor Danny Jones publicly apologized Thursday afternoon for an incident earlier in the day in which city police mistakenly stopped and handcuffed a 69-year-old retired police officer."
It gets worse, dudes:Jones apologized to J.L. Johnson, a 33-year veteran of the Charleston Police Department who retired in 1995, during a news conference.
The mayor demonstrated how he understood Johnson was ordered from his car, muscled to his knees and handcuffed with his hands behind his back by two officers.
