The Arrogance of Authority

Clip_217A DEA officer stopped at a ranch in Texas , and talked with
An old rancher. He told the rancher, “I need to inspect your
Ranch for illegally grown drugs.”
The rancher said, “Okay, but don’t go in that field over
There…..”, as he pointed out a distant location.

The DEA officer verbally exploded, saying, ” Mister, I have the
Authority of the Federal Government with me!”
Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removed his badge
And proudly displayed it to the rancher.
“See this badge?!  This badge means I am allowed to go
Wherever I wish…. On ANY land!! No questions asked or
Answers given!!  Have I made myself clear…… Do you understand???”

The rancher nodded politely, apologized, and went about his chores.

A short time later, the old rancher heard loud screams, looked up
And saw the DEA officer running for his life, being chased by the
Rancher’s’ enormous Santa Gertrudis bull……

With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it
Seemed likely that the officer would be gruesomely gored before he reached safety.  The man was clearly terrified.
The rancher threw down his tools, ran to the fence and yelled at
The top of his lungs…..

“Your badge……… Show him your BADGE!!”
