Oops, Police Division

Police chase ends with the offender stopped just over three train tracks. The officer who made the stop was still on the tracks. After the offender was cuffed, the police car wasn’t moved. Other involved agencies placed the offender in the car still on the tracks. A Union Pacific freight train then hits the police car with the handcuffed offender still in the car. The offender is now in the hospital.

Now, the manure will hit the fan. Can you say, “Lawsuit”?

I’m fortunate to live in a safe small city in a tough on crime county. That is diluted by living in a Blue State. Our local police chief lays it on the line.

Day in and day out our police deal with “people”. I couldn’t do it.

My plan is to simply enjoy the day. This morning was the monthly $9.00 breakfast at the VFW. Visiting with family and friends is always welcome. Banner waited in the car but was let out to say hello and got a piece of bacon and petting from all present.

Yesterday Banner spent the day at my sister’s house while I worked.

I’m not sure what to make of this.

Life is good!

Common sense ain't common?..
Even among our Law Enforcement personnel, apparently.

Especially when you have different jurisdictions milling around.

I know it's odd, but animals seem to enjoy sleeping on Moslem style rugs.

Yep, that's gonna cost them... sigh

Money be damned, their reputation will be tarnished for years to come.

I get your point but the photo is bad. The rug is Native American designs. Sisty has a fondness for Native American art and African Rhinos.

It's a dog's life for Banner. He rests (and holds himself ready to attack if necessary) while you work to keep him in the lap of luxury.

His life is one of service. Who is being served is the question.
