The Z Is Nowhere Near The R...

 ...on any keyboard I have ever seen as far as I recall. So when a police officer allegedly ran an Arkansas tag as an Arizona tag, I figure it must be because he never paid attention in 4th or 5th grade geography class or is maybe just an ignoramus or had a terrible brain fart.

Now, I can understand a person of a bit less than, or even of, average intelligence thinking that AR stands for Arizona being a and r are its first two letters but how anyone would think AZ stands for Arkansas is beyond me. I note, in my 32 years of law enforcement experience, it was always the two letter code used for running a license plate.

So, when an officer in TX, reportedly ran an Arkansas plate as an Arizona plate, resulting in guns drawn on an innocent family, I believe that officer requires lots of basic retraining in not only geography but spelling of state abbreviations as well. The family, I think, is also owed more than a mere lame apolpgy. More at the source.

All the best,
