Ron Metzger - Works for me

This week, Captain Clay Higgins with the St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's assistance in identifying a burglary suspect.

"The man is an accomplished burglar," said Higgins. "He knows when to strike, he gets in and out fast, and he avoids cameras. He appears to know where to go in each business, so we believe he visits the places he hits as a customer… before the burglary."

Anyone with information on the burglaries is asked to call St. Landry Parish Crime Stoppers at (337) 948-8477.
Lord knows, you can't  disagree with Captain Higgins.  That said, I do see a bit of political opportunism in his self promotion videos.  Sheriff  Joe Arpaio, who he seems to be emulating, gained his notoriety after the Arizona press focused on his tough treatment of convicts under his "care."  He said Picayunishly.

Clay Higgins is quite the internet sensation in south Louisiana. The people of St. Landry parish seem to like him too. They sure turn in a lot of tips to him. His message is simple, redemption comes through confession and anyone can turn their life around. It's a message that resonates in Catholic south Louisiana.

We don't think he's emulating Sheriff Arpaio; we think he's emulating Elmer Gantry.

Standing ovation here boss! I wonder how many LEOs outside of the South would be able to come up with Genesis 3:14 extemporaneously like that? Awe inspiring. I'm ready to turn myself in and I didn't even do the crime.

One of my fondest memories was when I was discussing the regional ethnic differences in LA with a genuine, proper NC belle who had lived for years in New Orleans. I asked her what the Cajuns called themselves and she sheepishly volunteered coon-ass, but she hastened to advise me that this expression was not used in polite company.
