Hawaii Officers Accused Of Forcing Homeless Man To Put Mouth On Urinal [story]

^ What I find crazy about this story is that they have a picture of three urinal stalls, but they're from Hong Kong, and each stall has its own television:

On a somewhat more serious note...

Anyone else getting tired of the H3N2 outbreak?

This ends up like an Assassin’s Creed meme (though no serious injury AFAICT).

CTA guy has some balls.

According to this article, PETA killed over 1800 dogs and cats in 2017.

Looks like Penn and Teller were right about them all along...

I didn’t see the Penn & Teller.

I can see the argument euthanasia is the proper course.

I can’t stand PETA.

I don’t know the name of other animal rights organizations. I know PETA’s name because they’re assholes. IOW, regrettably, there’s incentive for them to behave the way they do.

The WWF is alright, isn't it?

The only reason I found out about them in the first place is obvious, but I've always thought they had a good reputation.

[EDIT] Nevermind. Conservation does not necessarily = animal rights.

My aunt is forever posting pictures of animals in desperate straits who need money for surgery, and the cynical side of me says no, put that animal down, and save the money for the others. She is also the one who adopted a very unfriendly dog, who would only tolerate her.

not defending peta, they are jerks.

Well, I fibbed a little to be concice.

I can name a few, but none of them have the mindshare with me PETA does.

Even if the WWF doesn’t exactly fit, with me as an example it’s an example of this. I’ve of course heard of the WWF, but I haven’t thought about them in years.

I can peg the exact moment. Andi posted pandas hitting each other with folding chairs.

Yeah, there are many who are overly-empathetic about animals. I don't fault them for their compassion, but how many people want to pay for a 14-year-old dog's surgery?

Dogs that hate everyone except their owners are the only dogs I don't love. They're sub-dogs.

...which I'm assuming is solely due to their bad press. What a terrible organization.

A sting operation on an arms deal just went bad.

It was here.



This is where the State of Illinois has all their downtown Chicago government offices. Also prominently featured in the 80s movie Running Scared.

By some bizarre occurrence, an off-duty police commander was shot and killed.


Edit: it’s possible the sting part is incorrect. I read about things when news was flying fast and furious, and didn’t check for updates since.

This...





is a mannequin.

Story
A van driver dressed up a mannequin and put her in the passenger seat so that he could use the carpool lane, and he got caught.

Here's an official statement from the Police in British Columbia: Police said users of the HOV lanes must have at least two actual humans in the vehicle.

So, there you go!


And...

Authorities in Portugal said a man who arrived in the country from Brazil was found to be hiding 2.2 pounds of cocaine in a set of fake butt cheeks


^ Let's face it: Even on Valentine's Day, people all around the world need time with a set of love muffins, real or otherwise.

I've read carpool lane stories like this before. The police statements are always silent on how many times it worked. They imply the dummy was caught the first time, when it probably worked for months.

That mannequin is fairly realistic. Without the hoodie on and on a sunny day, I would guess that no one would know.

It would be totally inappropriate for me to note which world leader’s wife the mannequin resembles.

So I won’t do that.
