TAMPA, FL – A Tampa Police officer was caught on tape walking his horse through a crowded Ybor City bar, and the police chief said she approves of it.

The 37 second video was posted on YouTube and shows a mounted police officer walking his horse through Habibi’s Hookah Bar on 7th Avenue. A woman is heard screaming in surprise as the horse rounds a corner into her path.

Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor said, “It’s good public relations.” However, one business owner complained about the practice.

WTF? Good public relations? Haters gonna hate I suppose.

I know police horses are really well trained an all, but this just seems like an unnecessary risk taken simply to showboat the officer’s authority.

You heard the man… if a thug or criminal tries to steal his buddy John McMillan’s yard signs the next shot isn’t going to be a warning!

This dog was first chained to the trailer, wagging its tail. The only aggression shown by this dog was after it was re-chained up to a pickup truck for about 10 mins. Yes, it panicked when the catch pole came out but that is to be expected. Most animals will panic when a catch pole is looped around their neck by a stranger. The dog was shot once then seemed like it was wagging his tail before it was shot the 2nd time in the head.

The officer shoots the dog at around 5:28

How sad.  I hope the guy who shot the dog doesn’t have his job anymore. That is outrageous.

I wonder why they even bothered pointing the camera at the area where they were going to get the dog from.  Is that standard procedure now if you have the time to do it? Seems to me like it would be in the officer’s best interest not to record themselves doing anything, because any criticism they would get, could just be swept under the rug.  I am really glad though, that incidents like this DO get caught on video.

New York Mills, NY – Shortly before 1 p.m. on that Thursday afternoon, Dickan walked into the cellular phone store on Commercial Drive, with a .357 magnum in his hand, and a list in his pocket containing the six names of the AT&T store employees to which he was holding such deep anger, and planned to kill as a result.

Authorities believe Dickan could have been even more successful with his list of six victims, if not for the instantaneous actions of Rome Police Officer Donald J. Moore, who was off-duty, but in the store as a customer at the time of the shooting. “He heard and sees the gun, draws his weapon, and fired,” Lt. Little said of Officer Moore’s reaction.

Man there are some crazy people out there.

Pretty awesome that the armed off duty police officer was able to save at least 6 lives.  See, guns save lives too, it works both ways.

That’s the 2nd story in the past few days that has involved AT&T and guns. The other was the man in Oregon who tried to shoot out the tires of a getaway car of some robbers who stole multiple iPhones.

Chicago, IL – Police say the four suspects had pulled up to the home of officer Thomas Wortham’s parents at 85th Street and South King Drive in the Chatham neighborhood about 11:30 p.m. and tried to steal the motorcycle that Wortham had recently bought himself as a coming home present. He had just served his second tour of duty in Iraq.

The father grabbed his gun and came to the aid of his son, who had announced that he was a police officer, sources said. In the exchange of gunfire, Wortham was shot several times and two of the suspects were wounded, authorities said. Retired police officers are allowed to keep guns, officials said.

Absolutely terrible :(

I don’t know how Daley thinks banning guns is going to prevent situations like this.  This goes without saying… but criminals will always be criminals.

I’m glad his Dad was there to put a few holes in at least 2 of the suspects anyway.  Not that that is any sort of acceptable trade off for losing a son.

Priceless… and with surprisingly better trigger discipline… but still poor muzzle control :P

I’m sure that won’t be the last parody we see of that political Ad.
