During a rash of incidents involving Fort Worth police officers and alcohol, chief of staff Paul Henderson summed up the department’s frustrations when he declared: "We are absolutely fed up with dealing with this off-duty behavior."
That was in April 2010. Eight months later, despite mandatory alcohol awareness training for all police employees, two officers were arrested in a five-day period on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. A year later, another officer faced DWI and gun charges.
Early Saturday, Henderson himself was arrested on suspicion of DWI when a Department of Public Safety trooper saw him make an unsafe lane change near the Interstate 30/20 split in Parker County, a DPS spokesman said.
Nothing says law enforcement like, “Do as I say not as I do.” You lead from the front and obviously this individual felt he could lead from the rear. In retrospect at this point we now see why his officers were drinking and driving. If their boss does it, why can’t they?

Because in reality you just want the general public to think you care, when in actuality you don’t.
