NLV pigeon policeman inspires reality TV show
Nephi Oliva’s controversial pigeon sanctuary in North Las Vegas drew so much media attention last year that he is set to become the star of his own reality TV show, “The Pigeon Police.”
“The show is going to be extremely controversial, but we are poised and ready for a battle with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals),” Oliva says.
Although Oliva saves 97 percent of all the pigeons he captures as the owner of Nevada Pigeon Control, he kills the remainder. A brief video of the new show’s first episode shows him gearing up, à la Rambo, then shooting a pigeon.
Although I think they could have stopped after numero uno:) He's sweet squared!

UPDATE: Ok, found out the hottie in the pic is the host of the show Rob Pincus.
Here's a bonus pic...........
Wonder who the hottie in the picture is?
S.W.A.T. Magazine TV, winner of a 2010 People’s Telly award, has been picked up for a second season, and the first new episode from season 2 premiers on June 30th on the Outdoor Channel during their Wednesday Night At The Range lineup. Season 2 is sponsored by Cheaper Than Dirt! along with, GunVault, Blackhawk!, LaserLyte, and Cross Breed Holsters. Cheaper Than Dirt! is proud to continue to be the primary sponsor, supporting the extensive instructional segments.
Rob Pincus commented on the upcoming shows in the second season: "In the first episode of the new season, John Chapman will be teaching officer rescue techniques to members of the Pinal County Regional S.W.A.T. Team and then he’ll apply the same concepts to the problem of needing to assist a family member who has been injured during an active shooter situation. A new theme for Season Two is the idea of “Always a Student,” a concept that I tried to exemplify last season by jumping in on many of the training blocks at the end of the show. Often, during these scenes, I would find an opportunity to learn or identify a failure point with our guest instructor. We received some great feedback on these true learning moments over the past six months. This time, we are going a step further by having our guests instructors take advantage of the opportunity to train with each other and show their dedication to remaining Always a Student. In fact, the first new Question of the Week segment will focus on this topic."

"The community as a whole failed Mr. Otis," said Burley, referring to Keaton Otis, the mentally ill man who shot him during a traffic stop. "I think it's something we can all learn from."
Burley, 31, a five-year member of the Portland Police Bureau and member of its Hotspot Enforcement Action Team, spoke about the May 12 shooting at East Precinct, alongside team Sgt. Don Livingston and Officer Ryan Foote. Foote drove Burley to the hospital in a police car.

And for checking out the site:)
I can't get OVER the manager's arrogance in saying "I never expected a police officer to come into the space," he said. "If it happened again, I wouldn't serve him." Officer Crooker, if I had a coffee pot and if I knew how to use it, I'd definitely make you a cup!
BTW, how IRONIC that the guy who produces COPS is also named John Langely... ------------
In mid-May, Portland police Officer James Crooker went to Southeast Portland on a patrol call. With a few minutes to spare, he decided to get a coffee.
So, he popped into the Red & Black cafe on Southeast 12th Avenue near Oak Street, bought a coffee and was heading out when a customer approached him, saying she appreciates the hard job that police officers do every day in Portland.
One of the co-owners of the cafe, John Langley, has another point of view. While the officer and customer were chatting, he walked up and asked Crooker to leave, saying he felt uncomfortable having a uniformed officer in the vegan cafe.
The incident, which was brief, speaks volumes about the tensions between Portland police and some members of the community who are more worried about police shootings than protection.
Crooker said he was surprised to be shown the door but left immediately. He said this marked a first during his nine-year in law enforcement, two in Portland and seven in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
