Um...

When I saw the headline for this one, I thought you've got to be kidding me...

Woman arrested for making faces at dog

...but then as I read the article I thought, shouldn't this woman be tried for something? There are many, many times that I side with the police officers who have to deal with these idiots, I think that it's usually the prosecutors that want to make a name for themselves. This time it is the reverse, the cops should have just arrested her for disorderly conduct and public intoxication, using the faces she made at the dog as evidence. No problem getting that conviction. The state's attorney looked at the evidence, and the charges, and decided not to prosecute ... good job exercising some sense. Now if you could only pass that along to the lady and the officer involved, I wonder if there is stem cell research for common sense (re)placement?

yeah, you are so right on that one. i have to say, the headline is absurd, the charges were absurd, but if the officers had tried, they could have pressed charges that would have been reasonable and held up in court.

i'm laughing, hysterically, right about the time the cops throw you to the ground and you discover you like being frisked.
