In a big "F you" to the people of America, deputy A.J. Ross made famous for harassing a man at a checkpoint on the fourth of July has been given a "Deputy of the Year" award by the agency responsible for setting up such checkpoints throughout the state.
From WGNS via r/BCND:
Channel 4 News reported in July (2013) that Ross actually worked at the sheriff's department twice, the first time.
Disciplinary action was not taken after the sobriety checkpoint incident in July, according to Sheriff Robert Arnold. The Sheriff stated, "He didn't violate anybody's rights" being hired in 2002. Then, former Sheriff Truman Jones accepted his resignation after Ross, according to his personnel file uncovered by WSMV, lied to Murfreesboro Police about having insurance after a fender bender accident. Ross was later re-hired under the new administration.
