You go through the Orange County Sheriff's Department Academy. You work your stint in the jail system for at least six years. You finally get your assignment to patrol the streets of a community, making San Juan Capistrano a safe place. Taxpayers shell out more than $115,000 to have you there, too.
And what do you do?
From this week's Sheriff's Blotter:

Ridge Road, 29500 Block (12:47 p.m.)
Deputies were asked to stand by while a man and woman exchanged their cat. Dispatchers told the deputy the cat’s name was Miowi and that it was a 6-year-old orange tabby, “similar to Garfield.” The exchange did not go through, though – the man was not home.
