Bad Idea

Lately, we've been receiving calls about people shooting paint-ball guns at pedestrians from their cars. If any of you think this is no big deal since it's not a "real" gun; think again. I've been called to a few different scenes to take pictures of these idiots and the damage they've caused. Their night of fun turned into felony charges of aggravated assault and criminal damage.

Then, there was the real duo of geniouses that bought a BB gun from Walmart and decided it would be a good idea to test it out on citizens walking in the parking lot. They shot a woman in the arm and a man in the back of the head and then sped away in their mom's minivan . If you're going to shoot at people with a very realistic looking handgun, you probably shouldn't do it in a crowded parking lot with dozens of cell phone carriers and a police helicopter already overhead for an unrelated call. The pair was quickly caught and booked for aggravated assault.

I'm just waiting for the night one of these fools points a toy gun at the wrong citizen who happens to be carrying a real gun.

The following 15 Police Comments were taken from actual police car videos around the country.

#15. "Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch out after you wear them awhile."

#14. "Take your hands off the car, and I'll make your birth certificate a worthless document."

#13. "If you run, you'll only go to jail tired."

#12. "Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? In case you didn't know, that is the average speed of a 9mm bullet fired from my gun."

#11. "So you don't know how fast you were going. I guess that means I can write anything I want on the ticket, huh?"

#10. "Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I am the shift supervisor?"

#9. "Warning? You want a warning? O.K., I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket."

#8. "The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not: Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?"

#7. "Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy, and step in monkey DOO."

#6. "Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven."

#5. "No, sir, we don't have quotas anymore. We used to have quotas, but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we want."

#4. "Just how big were those two beers?"

#3. "In God we trust, all others we run through CPIC."

#2. "I'm glad to hear the Chief of Police is a good personal friend of yours. At least you know someone who can post your bail."

And.................... THE BEST ONE !!!!!!!

#1 "You didn't think we give pretty women tickets? You're right, we don't. Sign here.
