Sheriff bans tattoos

Hamilton County Sheriff Simon Leis is banning tattoos on his deputies — at least visible ones.

Jessica Brown has the story here

I agree with Sheriff Leis on this issue. Ham.Co. deputies in my area are very professional and present a positive image.

He makes them shave their legs and chest, as well !

Bi-Si likes his young recruits fresh, clean, with only his mark embedded !

You are sick. Get help.

And quit hanging out in men's bathrooms at CVG airport. That's the tin hat-wearing, foot-tapping bold typist's hunting grounds.

It sounds like a few other Departments should follow the Sheriff’s lead. As a tax paying citizen of Hamilton County it is nice to know that the Deputies will still maintain a professional appearance. I have seen so many other Police Departments who have officers that look so unprofessional, from tattoos to being over weight. I can tell you an over weight officer with a wrinkled dirty uniform does not look professional.
Keep it up Sheriff.

The good Sheriff just keeps making a fool of himself. This is a non-issue unless the tattoo would be considered offensive, vulgar, profane, a distraction, or illegal.

Even cops should have a personal right of free speech.

I hate, hate, hate tattoos - but this is ridiculous

12:06 This is the day of Political Correctness. Any tattoo could be offensive to someone.
Your employer has a right to demand a dress code. If you don't respect authority, you shouldn't be a sheriff in the first place.

reminds me of that cartoon character who keeps saying:

respect my authoritay

o my god needs to learn how to spell authority before he can grasp the concept.

11:12, guess you've never watched South Park, else you'd know 10:42 is spelling it as it is pronounced by one of the characters on the show.

Ask your mommy if she can unblock the Comedy Channel from the cable box in her basement. This steady diet of Limbaugh, Hannity, and Fox News is warping your mind.

why doesn't he ban speeding tickets? Ohio's ticket-fraud is more evil than tattoos; that's like the principal of FH HS saying that not wearing a hat in class is more important than not coming to school doped up on illegal drugs and carrying weapons, aka swat team

are we allowed to wear Red Sox baseball hats? Patriots 12 shirts?

sorry buddy, nothing you do is going to make me respect your black-shooting cops; that was more harrowing for me than 911

4:27 I'm black and I never had a problem with the police. Maybe you should change your lifestyle? If you ever have an emergency, you'll be the first person to call the police. Get a life bud.
