I shaved the sheriff

A previous post to this blog described how police in the United States can shave the heads of civilians without a warrant. If you're in Marysville, Kansas, you can shave the head of a law enforcement officer, according to the Marysville Advocate.
The Shave a Police Officer event to raise funds for a Marysville 4-year-old who has leukemia gets better and better.
Organizers of the Karlee Rockwell fund-raiser said this week that participants who bid big bucks will have a chance to shave the sheriff.
Marshall County’s finest have added their names to the list already inhabited by Marysville’s finest. Sheriff Kenny Coggins, undersheriff John Ralph and deputy Todd Heath said this week that they would join the corps of law enforcement officers who will have their heads shaved by the highest bidders in a silent auction.
There's not much time left to get in on the fun: bidding closes at 4pm on Sunday, and the shaving starts at 6. An opportunity to shave a law enforcement officer's head, and the money's going to charity? It's a great opportunity.
