doglover: Lsherm: I'm fairly certain that's against procedure in every farking police department in the country.On one hand, yes. But in this case, it's totally understandable and no-one got screwed.Policing may not be for this man, as he has a conscience.
picturescrazy: 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.
taurusowner: Giving his firearm to a random person shows a severe lack of judgement and an inability to keep cool on the job.
HindiDiscoMonster2013-06-29 06:56:17 AMOnlyM3: dopekitty74More cops need to be revolted by killing/beating the crap out of people. Maybe they'd find other, better ways of dealing with situations.We have exactly one (1) example of that type of cop. . .. . . They fired her assI read about this the first time it was here on Fark. ...And cops wonder why we don't trust any of them. This seems to be the hiring/termination procedure:1. Hire person2. If person commits crime against citizen go to 43. If person defends citizen against crime from other officers go to 64. Ignore, or slap on the wrist5. Goto 26 Terminate person with prejudice while fabricating additional "evidence" for termination
big pig peaches: Do we know the cops name? I could take a guess at gender, but that would be sexist.
novalord2: Smirky the Wonder Chimp: novalord2: wahhhhhhhhhh i'm not going to shoot the deer because I'm apparently a sadist who wants the deer to suffer wahhhhhhhhhhhhhwhat an irrational person//euthanasia is a routine part of hunting (for meat, not sport). Use a second shot to put an animal out of its misery, or you are a dick.Damn, and here I've just been wounding them to slow them down and then chewing my way through through their chest. Are you saying I've been doing it wrong all these years?I've seen people who don't bother to really kill the animal. Sport hunters.
EvilRacistNaziFascist: EvilAvatar: So let's post a bad decision for all the world to view and make a mockery of a man for having a moment of weakness. Because in 'murica we lick the salty tears up like deep fried butter right? I mean, of course this dude, his family, the police department, and probably the guy that was handed the gun is going to be hassled for a very very long time, but as long as it's for a laugh on the internet right fellas? Reading half the comments on this thread is a fairly solid motive for some cops to become assholes. Because the power-hungry thugs are the status quo, and the good people who make mistakes get humiliated and fired. /You are the cause of your own problems.//flame onI've no desire to flame you, but the fact remains that if you're in a law enforcement job and you have a visceral revulsion towards killing living things, you're better off employed elsewhere.
Enemabag Jones: big pig peachesDo we know the cops name? I could take a guess at gender, but that would be sexist.I pictured it as a male that never hunted and didn't want to see brains go splat./Don't reveal your own internal sexism.//The name first name was Kim.
Wall_of_Doodoo: Sometimes, believe it or not, we all hurt deeply.
NickelP: I'm an animal lover but if the guy can't handle this I kind of would question his decision making and leadership skills.
sethen320: I always get annoyed by the people who say stuff like "I'd rather pay for the bullet and put my dog down then pay the vet $500 for surgery". Why do you even have a pet?
spidermilk: Would be nice if they had a phone list of hunter dudes who have firearms,
ThatDarkFellow: When I was helping a friend move her son to his first apartment, said son riding shotgun in my old beat up pickup, we hit a deer. The truck survived, but so did the deer, at least long enough to drag her guts into the corn field. When I opened the glove compartment and withdrew the Ka-Bar, the goth teen about peed his Calvins."We have to put that animal out of its misery."Fortunately(?) the ...Yeah, and your dad beat the shiat out of your mom so she didn't have to compete in the business world. It was humane.Christ you sound like a sociopath.
BarkingUnicorn: I'm weary of people who abuse the word "sociopath." They suck as much as the abusers of "racist," "sexist," and "rape." Fark 'em all. Sometimes it's ignorance; often it's disingenuous. But it's always done to derail honest debate.
cuzsis: As someone who helped call in a soon-to-be-euthanized-with-a-bullet deer....[...] The deer was struggling to sit up, but didn't seem to have control of it's back legs. While we watched, a bunch of assholes in their lifted black pickup with big tires came barreling down the road. Swerving a bit and gunning the engine, they succeeded in running over the deer with both sets of tires, leaving it even more mortally wounded than before, but still alive.[...]/felt bad for the deer//still pissed at the assholes in the pickup.

Wall_of_Doodoo: 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?Fark was once an amazing, silly Internet site. It's becoming a humorless Huffpo crapzone.
Wall_of_Doodoo: 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.
ThatDarkFellow: NickelP: I'm an animal lover but if the guy can't handle this I kind of would question his decision making and leadership skills.I would have no problem shooting a person compared to an animal.
sethen320: eventhelosers: sethen320: RealAmericanHero: Wall_of_Doodoo: Cut and paste for yourself. Just in case it doesn't work out, 'suck a dick' and I mean that with all intent and purpose, suck a dick.Respond. Do it ladyboy. Be clever.Being a bigot trying to defend yourself? Doesn't matter if you right. Go fark yourself and all your ilk.Seriously? Stop whining.If you wanna be enemies that's fine. Just don't be a crybaby.Awww I'm sure you guys are gonna have great makeup sex.I would love to come back with something witty but that was too good. You saw the shot and you took it. I can't blame you for it and I applaud the result.
