Let me guess: The LASD will investigate the LASD and clear the LASD of any wrongdoing.
officer safety is paramount. therefore,they acted correctly. /s
The officers went home safely at the end of their shifts, that’s the important thing. /s
This was the Tosh.0 producer?
That’s what I read in the article. He was associated with Tosh.O. Not that I know what that is!
The one positive to this story is that all the deputies went home safely to their families.
I bet it was the running that scared Americas finest.
The police were obviously threatened.
And there is only one side of this story of this tale that will be told...
A fairly raunchy show on comedy central that looks at/makes fun of internet videos, etc.
But the the deputies get home safe? After all, that is the most important thing. /spit
PS Never run towards a LEO when you need help. Militarized LEOs see that as aggression and will kill you. No /sarc
Will the pink mafia be up in arms about this? Hmmm....
Where was the dog in all of this?
Unless you are suicidal or have a family member you want to get rid of, never, never, never call the police and get them involved.
No dog. If they had a dog, they’d still be alive.
"There is no human situation so miserable that it cannot be made worse by the presence of a policeman."
