He is not only standing by this woman's bedside--he is holding vigil on our whole town.
How sad that one of Athertons best citizen advocates, doesn't even call us his hometown--we should be ashamed of ourselves but at least feel really lucky. We need all the help we can get right now.

Michael is the most integrated individual I know.

Let's try a word study, see who we can catch...

Webster's 20th Cent.

Integrity: ‘1: firm adherence to a code of esp. moral or artistic values: INCORRUPTIBILITY 2: an unimpaired condition; soundness 3: the quality or state of being complete or undivided: COMPLETENESS; HONESTY

Latin root: integro

In it's earliest meanings, integro was a smelting term.

It meant to heat in the fire and through the smelting and tempering process to take metal ore and make into a forged unified object.

Maturity is about the absence of ambivalence, the merging through wisdom into the becoming of one thing.

There is a profound value in this, and not all achieve it.

Any one of you could trust Michael with your life and by the same token, he would lay down his to protect even one defenseless person threatened by the facsism that surrounds us all.

You can call it drama or anything you want, I really don't care.

I know that's true, and he's proved for a very long time with what he does.

You could do him the simple consideration of finding out about that.

Michael is incorruptible. He's also a hero.

I am so sick of hearing about how a bunch of complainers are heroes.

Stogner a hero? No, he's just a misfit who tries to get attention by complaining about police all the time.

McKeithen a hero? [Portion deleted. Over the top comment.]

[Portion deleted. Avoid personal attacks.]

As diverse a group as they are, they have one thing in common: a vicious disdain for police officers.

The real heroes are the POLICE OFFICERS who put their lives on the line every day in this community. Stop this monkey business about calling the complainers heroes. It's the other way around.

There is NO ONE who cares MORE about upholding the actual integrity of police officers than Mr. Stogner---that they may take actual pride in themselves and so that the public can have actual confidence in those who protect them.
Not even the D.A. (and certainly not their union), cares more about the police pride, than Michael Stogner does. He is their biggest aspirational proponent, truest friend and their real hero.
