Moticello Mayor Gordon Jenkins, having been arrested for drunk driving, is shown (handcuffed to the wall) cursing, bullying/threatening the booking officer, using racial epithets as well as his position in a vain attempt to escape responsibility and accountability for his actions. In short, it is a prime example of yet another elected public official trying to use his office for special treatment…corruption on display in all its vulgar glory. Jenkins is also a local shop owner and previous corrections officer. What’s unusual in this instance is the opportunity for the public to view it–rare for what has become a police state in all but name only.
