0001443: Former guards continue to beat criminals
The Captain of the Guard continues to beat criminals even after he has been removed from the position in both the noble and military screens.
Assign a dwarf as Captain of the Guard. Remove said dwarf from his position as Captain of the Guard.

He should continue to beat criminals.
The dwarf in question was a miner, armed with a pick. He used the pick to beat criminals until it was dumped. He was assigned multiple "move" commands, but never given a schedule other than the default for a squad, and never given a kill order. His sprite is no longer a military dwarf, but a miner. (Using the mayday pack). He prioritized the "beat criminals" job on the same level as additional "move" commands, but seemingly not "dig" jobs. No dwarves were ever put in his squad. He has no other noble position, but was a former mayor (successfully stepped down).
No tags attached.
