The title of the post is a bad parraphrase from Jim Cirillo’s quote
”You are not sworn to endanger your life to apprehend a dangerous criminal, nor you are paid to do it.”
And to get your gun out to rescue a Twinkie is just plain stupid and full of consequences you will be tasting soon enough.
Let’s say this was a violation of The Rules Of Stupid.
