many of his colleagues have of course insisted that he was “quiet, low-key and strait-laced,” which presumably implies that he is also innocent.
This is the case for many of the worst anonymous Internet tr0lls. This is a particularly egregious case, but you have to wonder how many other foxes are out there in America’s henhouses.
We’re really stretching the limits of the metaphor at this point. Seems like we’ve got fox-houses in most cities.

Yeah, without even thinking about it, I just assumed that comment meant “the city” as being the henhouse, and the whole NYPD as the foxes.
Compared to them, maybe he is. Scary thought, that.
Oh, a few
