Dumb Criminals

This Is Nuts

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013 • Filed under Corrupt Cops, Guns

Every neighborhood has pesky animals. In suburban Georgia, I only have to deal with rabbits and the occasional squirrel. In South America, there are spiders the size of rabbits and squirrels. In India, cobras and peacocks are just chilling alongside people. So why would a plain old squirrel be such a big deal?

Ask this cop in Tennessee. After a squirrel made its way into the Dollar General store, people flipped out. Animal Control was called, but when they were of no help, the policeman took matters into his own hands. According to HP, instead of using mace or pepper spray, he shot both at the squirrel and shot to scare him. So much, in fact, that no one is quite sure the exact amount of bullets fired. The policeman refused to explain his reasoning, and was therefore fired himself.
