  1. As the weather gets warmer, we will see more and more of this crap going on. One great thing about the rains is that it kept a lot of the scumbags indoors.

  2. I love the part where “The K9 was DEPLOYED to ASSIST taking the occupants of the vehicle into custody.” I hope the nice doggie was up on his shots and got to sink his canines into the punks and later got a nice steak for his participation! Way to go, doggie!
