HiLARious watching the sheriff's face as Morgan rants:
He is using his I'm-listening-to-an-irate-and-possibly-unstable-citizen face.
A policeman friend of mine refers to having to deal with "the turds."
He has to answer calls from idiots who want him to make their spouse/partner do something they don't want to do. He is aware, however, that cops get killed on domestic dispute calls, so he listens and waits as patiently as possible until the situation diffuses, paying close attention to their words and actions.
Sheriff Clarke dealt with "the turds" with grace, polish, and scads more class and intelligence than his opponents demonstrated.
