@0 ~t~UIII~,s~Ia~], Ub-~. LD, /'UUI II Fim Law enforcement person- nel work seven days a week, 365 days a year. They do in Plumas County, as I'm sure they do in cities and counties throughout the United States. Sunday through Saturday, crime does not take a day off, and each day has, I have dis- covered, a certain signifi- cance relating to the type of crime that occurs on that par- ticular day. People who work in profes- sions outside of law enforce- ment attribute various names or attitudes to differ- ent days of the week. For ex- ample TGIF refers to Fridays, when people are finally off work and can begin to enjoy the weekend. Wednesdays have been referred to as "over the hump" day, mean- ing the week is on the down- ward direction to the coming weekend. Mondays have been referred to by several names, some of which can't be print- ed, but the general idea is that nobody likes Monday be- cause they are back to work and have to work five days before they can enjoy the next weekend off. Now, as I said, in law en- forcement, different days of the week have a relationship busy because those persons to the type of crime that arrested on the weekend seems to occur most fre- , have been waiting in jail-~r quenfly on that particular the courts to open and now' . day.
