Not a surprise, he's from Montana. That's what people from Montana do.

That's not sappy. That's cool.

Probably not Farkworthy unless the cop tazed the guy's kids, but still, nice to see some human compassion out there somewhere.

I suspect that most cops are like this most of the time.

I just wish we heard about them more often than we hear about the other kind.

Awesome.

The cop is also awesome. Except he was probably on the clock and wasting taxpayer money but in this case I will forgive him for that.

any where but Montana, he would be fired for not tasing the guy and dragging him through mud and having his children placed in foster care.....

True story:

2nd worsT job I ever hAd was as a secuRity Guard for a major US discount rEtailer headquarTered in Minneapolis. Lots of long hours spent in one-way glass booths profiling, yes profiling (aggregately derived statistical presuppositions based on cumulative incident reports-and such. Lawn, onions, etc.,.), and where performance reviews had a distinct bias towards successful apprehensions. One Christmas Eve, I observed a gentleman concealing some items in a discreet area of the store. Turns out he was boosting Barbie dolls so that his kids could still have something to open the following morning. As I was only 2 months into the gig and my boss just happened to be there with me, I had no choice. The guy "had priors", and he did engage in criminal behavior by his own free will. And he went to jail. Late on Christmas Eve. I quit shortly thereafter. 27 years later, and I still remember the guy's face.

My Summer Vacation

Bozeman is intense. Jerky is a staple. I spent all my vacation money on buffalo jerky and went fly fishing. I didn't catch anything. It was pretty. There was a lot of facial hair. There was a cowboy diner that sold chicken fried steak. My favorite thing was an old-timey Ace Hardware store. The cash register girls were pretty and nice. So pretty and nice, I bought stuff I didn't need. The downtown was cute and people seemed to go there. Me and the girl tried to go to the Testicle Festival. I asked the guy at the lure shshop when the Testicle Festicle was and he said I was a week early and it was the Testicle Festival. I heard we were lucky to miss it as it is the world's gnarliest gangbang. We went to Glacier, I slept in a yurt. I didn't see any bears. So I was dissapointed and thankful.

That is my Bozeman story, Bozeman is intense. I'm not so intense.

I don't understand, if the guy was stealing school supplies, why did he buy the guy food?
It's like dying of thirst and someone offers you a cheeseburger.

Y'know, this actually matches up pretty closely to my story about road tripping through Idaho and Montana.

Except I slept out under the stars and was nearly trampled by rednecks poaching deers on the morning of the Fourth of July. I did sleep in a tipi in Coeur d'Alene though, but I didn't see any Nazis. Kind of glad for that, the guys at the gas station were scary enough.

We ended up eating rainbow trout for breakfast at a roadside casino where we also bought a trunkload of fireworks.

soze: We ended up eating rainbow trout for breakfast at a roadside casino where we also bought a trunkload of fireworks.

That sounds dreamy (the trout part). It is an odd place, I'll be back next summer. I'm going to rent a place in the mountains, drink beer, and swim in a stream surrounded by hummingbirds. Maybe I'll buy some kid school supplies and try and get some positive ink spilled for once.

Nothing like fresh trout, except maybe pan-fried super-fresh perch (like, still flipping around when you toss it in the pan fresh). Don't forget to drink some Moose Drool while you're there.

Look out for the anti-UN conspiracy nuts and the Wildlife officers with stumps for teeth, they're scary. Especially if you've got NY plates.

Montana is cool. I was born and raised there. Still have many relatives all over the state and I go back every few years to visit.

Only thing that bugs me is they're one of those states with goofy alcohol laws. As a serious drinker I'm probably spoiled here in Vegas, where you can buy a bottle of anything you want at a grocery store or even Wal Mart 24 hours a day. Montana has those state-owned liquor stores, and often there are only 2 or 3 in town, and they (and the bars) close at 2:00 AM. But that's my only gripe with the state.
 
2010-02-05 09:16:22 PM
Correction to my last post: The liquor stores are probably not state-owned, but that's the only place you can get a bottle of 80 proof anything at a decent price, and there aren't many of those stores, even in the bigger towns.

Love Montana, but we need a better state song...

Montana, Montana,
Glory of the West
Of all the states from coast to coast,
You're easily the best.
Montana, Montana,
Where skies are always blue
M-O-N-T-A-N-A,
Montana, I love you.

I always thought this song S-U-C-K-S

That is a sad story, but there are charities that will give the guy a Barbie for his kids, or hell, I'd stand outside and panhandle until I had enough to buy my kids a couple of dolls. (I'd never pandhandle otherwise.) The man made a dumb choice, but that's probably how he got a couple of priors in the first place.

Farking PIGS!!! I bet that after he "gave" the guy the frozen pizzas, he started asking the guy, "Where did you get those pizzas? Didja steal 'em?" Then he probably tazed the guy RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIS KIDS, beat him with a nightstick then arrested him. Farking pigs, they're all the same!

How far we have fallen. This is just what you expect under Osama bin Obama. Coddling criminals. If this happened just three years ago, this criminal would have been pushed to his knees and shot in the head. And Jesus Christ Almighty would have been the triggerman.

I was security guard at a hospital for awhile. A woman was rushed in to the ER one night in full cardiac arrest. I had to physically hold her daughter back from rushing into the operating room so that the doctors could try to work. When they came out to inform her that her mother had died, she looked me in the eye, blamed me for taking away their last moments together, and spit on me. I quit shortly after that. $8.50 an hour ain't worth that shiat.

I've seen the rent-a-cop at our local grocery store see a homeless kid pocket a deli sandwhich, sternly take the kid to the checkout line, pay for the food, and tell the kid about social resources in town. I also once tried to help him tackle a tweeker, but the handlebar-mustached 60yrs+ security guy had a knee in his back and arms pinned before I could make it down the aisle, all while barking orders at the tweeker.

/No he didn't and won't lose his job, this is in Canada silly.
