(WBIR Knoxville)   Officer fired after superiors determined his actions to mace and then repeatedly shoot a dangerous suspect inside a crowded store were unnecessary. And of course by "dangerous suspect" I mean "squirrel"   (wbir.com) divider line 60

If squirrels had a chance, they would kill you and everyone you care about...

It's not like they don't have cheap laundry baskets in there to trap the little buger, NOOOoooo, let's shoot the place up and discharge some pepper spray!

If the squirrel was wearing a hoody he would not have gotten fired.
 
2013-10-21 12:17:13 PM
No, no.  The officer was fired because they didn't file the report, but because of the shooting.

So, pepper spray is how they season a squirrel in Tennessee.  You learn something new...

Had he just filed the report "He was coming for my nuts", it would have been fine.

And I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll fire shots off in the building at the squirrels...

The squirrel failed to obey Officer Putnam's lawful commands leaving him no choice but to use force.

So what happened to the squirrel? The story says the cop "shot" it, later says, "shot at" it, says "that didn't work," resulting in the use of pepper spray. IS THE SQUIRREL OKAY?

I would hope he be fired over the incident, even if he did file a report

You are mistaken; the actual squirrel, whose assault resulted in the officer's termination:

Yeah thats pretty close to how it went down 'cept my squirrel was a lil more jumpier and chomped my finger insteada the peanut.

Apparently squirrels can't tell where fingers end and nuts begin.

Shoot a bunch of bystanders while chasing a suspect? Just another Tuesday in NY.

Shoot an unarmed suspect who wasn't really doing anything wrong at the time? Temp suspension with pay.

Shoot a squirrel? That's a firin'.

Subby fail.

Officer idiot (redundant) was not fired for use of his firearm and mace. He was fired for not filing a report about using his mace and firearm.

In short gunplay is fine in the view of these JBT's, just do the paperwork.
 
2013-10-21 02:00:11 PM
You know what?  If you can consistently hit a frightened squirrel with a pistol, go ahead and fire away.
 
2013-10-21 02:16:53 PM
Of course the earliest indicators of someone being a serial killer are the torture and killing of small animals...

Nah - if he had filed the report he would be fired for shooting in the store. It is better for him to be fired for failing to do his paperwork than for this. Not filing the paperwork is the only smart thing he did.
