丹是海洋城里的邪恶警长,就像魔鬼一样残酷。他崇拜金钱,虽然自己是百万富翁,但他手下的警察几乎分文都拿不到手。警察们过着苦日子,但是丹对此却漫不关心。他唯一关心的是自己的钱。

Every person who inhabited Oceantown disliked him. Dan enforced cruel laws. Once, Dan even put his own brother in jail for throwing a coin into a fountain! Sometimes he pointed his gun into the air and pulled the trigger. He didn't want the bullets to hit anyone. He just wanted to scare people with the loud sound.

海洋城里没有一个人喜欢他。他还制定了残酷的法律。他甚至曾经还因为自己的哥哥往温泉里扔了一个硬币而将其拘捕入狱!他有时会朝天开空枪,他不是想杀人,只是想让人们害怕。

Finally, the people of Oceantown decided that they had to get rid of Sheriff Dan. With their understanding, the crowd sought to unify the town. They marched to Dan's house. He was startled by the sight when he ran to the door. When he opened the door, the crowd jumped on him. They used a rope to tie him to a chair. Dan yelled, "Get your hands off of me! I'll put you all in jail for the rest of your lives!"

最终海洋城的人们决定摆脱他的统治。大家达成共识,集结在一起,前往丹的家中。他跑到门前时被眼前的景象吓了一跳。他一开门,人们就蜂拥而上,将他绑在了椅子上。丹大喊道:“放开我!我要判你们终生监禁!”

The crowd didn't listen. They carried Dan to the harbor and put him aboard a vessel. Dan was so scared that he began to sweat. He begged, "If you let me go, I will give you all my money!"

人们没有理会他的威胁,并将他带到海港的一艘船上。丹害怕的冷汗直流。他乞求说:“如果你们放了我,我把我所有的钱都给你们!”

The crowd said back, "Sheriff, we don't care about your money. We know you will never change. We're sending you on a voyage to the middle of the ocean." The boat drifted out of the port, and Dan was never seen again. The people voted for a new sheriff who was kind and fair.
