The Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #3 is pleased to announce and support the 1st Annual "Ed Norris Bike Ride" Fundraiser to be held on Saturday, March 28th, that will support the newly established Baltimore Metropolitan FOP Police Widows and Children's Fund.How can this be? I'm all for bike rides and raising money for good causes, but I don't get it. My buddy Ed Norris is a convicted felon. Police are forbidden to associate with felons.
Granted, in Baltimore it's hard to go out and not to associate with some felons. A nice guy who served me beer was a felon. Now I pretended I didn't know that, but I always assumed that if the powers that were came down and tole me I couldn't drink there, I would have found a new bar.
Anyway, if you're not a police officer, by all means ride and raise money. If you are a police officer or a representative of the FOP, can you explain to me why Ed Norris is an A-OK felon but other felons aren't?
I guess this is what's on my mind: if you don't have sympathy for police officers hanging out with family members who are felons, why do you think it's OK for you to choose to hang out with felon Ed Norris?
