So you pick an article that has already been submitted and has comments for a lamer headlined one with no comments. I guess the next step is to submit the same story from Buzzfeed and watch this one disappear?

I have an idea, why not just give us a list of sponsored links so we can slightly modify or directly quote them to be approved?

Yeah, it is. But, believe it or not, there was a time when a dude who was issued a bullet delivery system could look at his fellow citizens while overwhelmed and find a never again mentioned act of support. There was a time when TMZ couldn't buy you away from supporting your emotionally traumatized neighbor.

Sometimes, believe it or not, we all hurt deeply. We put in a hundred or so hours a week and shooting a baby anything despite our 'duty' becomes hard and terrible.

When you finally find a decent man enforcing the law, stop crapping on him. Sometimes flexing a finger is a larger burden than ordering a DQ cone.

Based on your post to Lsherm, I'm going to assume you're manstruating right now. Sit down on the couch, curl up with a good book and a big pint of Haagen-Dasz, and realize sometimes the internet doesn't go your way.

Most cops would plant the 12 pack on her if they made a "mistake". To quote one officer about 25 years ago: "We don't make mistakes; you made the mistake."
 
2013-06-28 10:49:32 PM
So they found the one cop in America that couldn't wait to shoot something. Seriously though, giving up his gun to some random stranger should get him fired. Also, killing the deer was probably the humane thing to do

If you hit a deer, make sure that muhfuh is dead-dead, else you wind up bit in the neck and in a phone booth at the stop n go with a muhfun dog wanting your deer. Whose deer is it? Mine, or the dog's? These are the questions.

So mercy killing a wounded animal = not having a conscience?

You're right though, policing isn't really for him if he can't handle something like that. You're trusting him with a tool that can easily kill, and he hands it to a random person while breaking down? C'mon, man.

Does it suck? Yes, but it's the humane thing to do. And yes, I've had to do that to a whitetail that had its hind legs destroyed by an 18-wheeler. Pulled over on the road to our lease, apologized to it for its shiatty luck, and ended its pain. I didn't smile and I didn't cry. The only solace I took was knowing it wasn't suffering anymore.

Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: HA HA! We hired a human being as a police officer instead of a sociopathic status-abuser! HA HA!


I love animals. We have two dogs and a cat. If we didn't have the cat we'd probably get birds. And even though I eat meat, I couldn't do the killing myself.

That said, when I came home and found a rabbit on my driveway that was shaking and missing the skin off its back (I assume a cat's doing but I'll never know) I did what had to be done. I smacked it on the head with a shovel because that was the quickest and most humane way I had of killing it. My choices were to do that, or let it suffer in shock for awhile before dying on its own. You can still be a human being and put down an animal. Besides, everyone's big problem is that he gave his gun to a stranger.

It's from this. For some reason I had it in my head that you exploded a rabbit.
 
2013-06-29 12:58:54 AM
I don't know if he should be fired (though certainly disciplined heavily), but he should probably quit. Giving his firearm to a random person shows a severe lack of judgement and an inability to keep cool on the job. I work as a cop in Michigan and I've had to do this to a deer before. Depending on the area, we generally try to get animal control or the DNR to do it, but sometimes in the middle of the night you're the only one around who can. It's not fun but it needs to be done. Leaving a deer there on the side of the road wheezing in pain with blood running from its mouth is just sick. At the end of the day, nothing is going to save it. It's not a choice between shooting the dear and nursing it back to health in some sappy Disney-esque manner. It's a choice between a quick death and hours of drawn out pain. This officer failed to do his job. He should be reprimanded. He gave up his firearm to a passerby. That should certainly result in some punitive action.

I saw a wounded wild deer put down, and I'm not sure if I could do it.  I can't throw stones at this guy.
 
2013-06-29 01:02:33 AM
That guy is definetly not from Wisconsin.  If he was he'd be asking (after he shot it) if he can take the carcass to the nearest butcher.

Deer makes tasty venison, sausages, etc!

My dad took care of a dying rabbit for a cop once when I was a kid.  Cop was going to use his duty weapon, but the thing was huddled up against a stone wall, and there was a risk of a ricochet.  Dad dispatched it with a .22 Short, which was what he had planned to do in the first place when he called the cops, just wanted the cop there first so the neighbors didn't freak out at the sight of a man with a rifle.

scottydoesntknow: You're trusting him with a tool that can easily kill, and he hands it to a random person


It's almost like every citizen of America has the right to bear arms, or something.

I don't see any problems with an officer giving his service weapon to a stranger per se. There's potential problems if it's stolen and used in another crime etc, but life ain't the movies and a cop's gun is really just another gun. Often they're not even very good guns.

So I while I see what you're getting at, I respectfully disagree.

I had to do that once. Only it wasn't a deer.

It was my brother.

He was older than me and I always looked up to him, even though he was severely retarded (or "challenged", as we say now - this was decades ago). He always had an instinct to protect me and I sensed it, like when he knocked over the barbeque grill just as I was reaching for it, or when he tackled Mom to keep her from forcing down my medicine (without which I might have died, but of course Isaac couldn't have understood that.)

And when we went on a hike, and were both trapped in a rockslide, he thought of nothing but freeing me, bloodying his fingers and tearing off his nails to uncover my bruised legs while his lay broken beneath the boulders, until at last I crawled free and promised him I'd return.

We'd been there for days: the searchers never found us, throats parched, suffering.

So I brought Dad's rifle back and shot him.
 
2013-06-29 01:13:35 AM
Holy shiat, I read your post totally wrong. BRAIN FART!

Yeah, cops shouldn't break down when they have to kill animals. But it's a lot easier to shoot a man than a cute widdle fuzzy maminal that just got run over by a truck and is looking at you with them big critter eyes as if asking you "Why does it hurt when I try to run from you?"

It takes a bit of hardness to give the coup de grace to that fuzzy critter that you don't need to light up a scumbag who's about to shoot you. Adrenaline blows all that away.

I'd have been able to shoot it. But I'd have drunk... a lot later.

I think its more ridiculous that the guy told the cop he had a permit for a handgun in the house, and before he got back, the cop handed his service weapon to someone in the crowd.

Hahaha. A permit to simply own a handgun.
