"Highway Patrol" was a popular television show in the US during the late 1950s - early 60s.
Its purported purpose was to show to the American people what a policeman does "in real life", as opposed to the "secret agents" being portrayed by the various characters, villains and advertisers of such shows as "The Man from U.N.C.L.E., "I Spy", "Mission Impossible", "It Takes a Thief", and perhaps the best of them all, the intelligent satire, "Get Smart".
Of course, the Brits had (and always will have) James Bond, although that character does not translate to the small screen well. But the whole lot of them, including other British entries such as "The Prisoner" & "The Avengers" couldn't hold a candle to Broderick Crawford when it came to actually taking the criminals off the streets, being kind to children, communicating with other policeman on that newfangled radio and filming 10 min. long takes of every stupid thing that happens simply to show the viewer that most of police work is in fact, a rather mundane and repetitive evidence-collection process based on the premise that even a blind squirrel will find a nut every so often.
One can only imagine the excitement on the set of "The Glenn Beck Radio Show" then, when The Man strode in with an arrest warrant for this "Stallion of the Pen"!
The "Blazing" offense? It seems that Mr. Beck, who willingly locked himself out of his spiritual house to participate in this year's election season as an independent observer, is using scripture without attribution to promote himself and his professed cause to give a refuge for the truth or as the firebrand reads above his door: "The Truth Lives Here."
At issue is his "confiscation and use" of the Book of Ephesians, specifically Ephesians 6:12:
"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."
is one phrase that triggered the arrest warrant "though there were others, also", sources said.
As Citizen Beck was handcuffed and led away before a national audience, he was read his rights, chapter and verse:
"And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city which are described in his book." (Rev. 22:19)
As this investigation continues, Mr. Beck will eventually be expected to reveal more details.
Good job Lieutenant!
