  •  I was denied a job with the census over this. (8+ / 0-)

    In the '70's I was attacked by a drunk in a take out sandwich shop and successfully defended myself. I asked the mgr to call the police after I had subdued the attacker. The police arrived and it turned out the attacker was a drunk, off duty cop (SFPD). I was arrested and charged with assault on a police officer in performance of his duty. When I went to trial the jury not only found me not guilty by reason of self defense, they all shook my hand on the way out. I later became a sworn peace officer.

    I guess that old arrest is still floating around in cyberspace though.

    Stand up for human rights. Boycott Arizona.
