Sleeping Officer Beauty Your tax dollars at rest

New title courtesy of Midwest Chick

Cedar Rapids police officer disciplined for sleeping on the job
[Spokesperson] Hamblin said the officer was in the wrong, but she downplayed the idea that it could seen as an embarrassment to the department.
Nope, not an embarrassment at all.

"Your tax dollars at rest" - a much better title.

His superiors reprimanded him for not for sleeping on duty but for "Failure to generate revenue for the city."

With all the cameras in town, does he really need generate a positive cash flow?

The Blue Wall never ceases to amaze. What the spokesperson should have said is that the department is embarassed, and the officer in question will now be WALKING a beat to avoid any future naps.

BTW, glad you liked my comment well enough to re-title your post! :-)
