'Joe Maggard, another former Ronald, pleaded guilty in 1998 to a charge of carrying a concealed weapon in New Hanover County, N.C., and the next year was convicted in county court of making harassing telephone calls posing as a Ronald. The judge ordered him to take anger-management classes.

"I'm one of the bad-boy Ronalds," said Maggard, an actor who portrayed Ronald in the mid-'90s. "Am I a bad guy? No, I'm not a bad guy. Did Ronald get in a little trouble down there? Yes."

In my experience they get hired in as middle managers straight-out of the military and then burn out in a year when they can’t handle an environment of employees that aren’t legally required to follow orders. I’ve been lateral with 4 in the last 10 years and every one followed the same pattern.

The grunts make great union employees however.

He says he became a cop after the army. A lot of ex-military goes that route.

Makes me wonder about other documentaries, that this one presented such an obvious fraud uncritically.
