LA traffic cop has record number of complaints

 I did get a chuckle out of the fact that no one had bothered to tell him he had such an excellent record. Management!

This is L.A. Sheriff's Deputy Elton Simmons, and I bet you don't like him already. Seeing him there, hiding in the shadows.

'Why can't he go catch some real criminals,' you may be thinking. Or, 'No wonder he has a record number of complaints.' Who wouldn't complain about a guy whose sole purpose in life is to ruin your day?
By the very nature of the business, all L.A.County traffic cops can expect to get at least a few complaints every year. A lot of them are petty -- people just mad because they got a ticket. But regardless, they all get documented and placed in the officer's personnel file.
Which is why Capt. Pat Maxwell was stunned when he started looking through Simmons' file. "I just said that's not possible," he said.


Happy Saturday:)

Seattle police cure munchies with Doritos giveaway at city's Hempfest

Love the stickers! At least they Seattle PD have a sense of humor about it;) Thanks for sending, BG!

When Seattle pot smokers got the munchies this weekend, the cops had their back.
Now that marijuana is legal in Washington, there's not much police could do about weed-toting revelers at the city's Hempfest.
But they did want to explain the new rules surrounding recreational marijuana use in the state -- and hit upon a novel distribution format: Doritos.
Sticking the cops' messages on something edible was a no-brainer, Seattle police Sgt. Sean Whitcomb said.


And as a follow up to this story, the police ran out of Doritos in ten minutes...LOL!

Yet another "PawsitiveLEO"

A Pennsylvania patrol officer was proclaimed a hero after he rescued a German shepherd from a car wreck in South Londonberry.

Since the rescue, a photo of patrol officer Nick Ague carrying the dog that his fellow police officers posted to Facebook has gone viral with nearly 4, 500 likes and tons of admiring comments.

"Amazing people still do exist!" one user wrote. Another wrote, "What a special gift you are to the police force and to this German shepherd who needed your help and was given so freely!!!!"
