If You're Gonna Screw Up, Well....

there's no sense in going halfway. Another Gazette story:

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.

A real orginal quote:“I just want to nip this in the bud,” the mayor said.
