Sort of the point

Lt. Mike Amos, the former Commander of the Panhandle Regional Narcotics Task Force that was responsible for the infamous Tulia drug sting, announced his retirement.

The Amarillo Globe News said his "service is marred, however, by the controversy surrounding the Tulia drug bust, which operated under Amos' supervision." The Globe News quoted Col. Robert Frances saying, "If (Tulia) is what people remember him by, it's certainly unfair. A lot of that, he had very little control over."

Well, that was sort of the point, wasn't it?
