    If you read Harrodsburg's local paper, you will come to an understanding that a certain few cops want to be heros, when they are doing nothing more than harassing local citizens.(edited) It would be a great investigative story if you could get inside the local corruption of the police force in Harrodsburg. Just check out the article (which was plagarized)by a current cop that just shows you their attitude in this small town. Call the Harrodsburg Hearld, they will tell you the exact date of the article. Thanks.
