Selective Punishment

A Sheriff Deputy for the Neshoba County Sheriff Department wrote a check for items bought from a private individual. The individual went to the bank to cash the check and the bank informed him that the account the check was written on didn’t have any money in it and that the Deputy didn’t use that account.

The individual went to file charges on the Deputy and the department informed him that they wouldn’t arrest the Deputy because of just that, he was a Deputy for the Sheriff Department.

It’s strange that a private citizen can write a check and we’d be arrested for passing bad checks but an official that is suppose to uphold the law can write a bad check and have charges filed on him and the law doesn’t apply to him.
