  • Let me begin: 99% of the police give the other 1% a bad name.

    Satisfied?
  • Losing the election hit Paul Ryan harder than I thought. The guy looks terrible.

    It's really cool that the Make-a-Wish folks let a kid with progeria hang out with police for a day.
  • I don't know the guy, and I recognize that it's completely unfair, but I'm biased against any LAPD officer that came up when Daryl Gates was Chief.
  • Psst, officer, there's a reason you should have split email mailing lists.
  • And yes, the Bunny World lady with the undecipherable last name does appear to be cray-cray.

  • I generally have no problem with individual police officers, while still holding a healthy contempt for law enforcement agencies (kinda like my feelings toward the TSA vs. individual TSA employees), but after reading the article, I can't get too outraged at this.

    Reporters asks for stats regarding enforcement of new law.
    Commander realizes his people haven't done much to enforce said law so he asks his people to start doing so so they don't look bad.

    If there were multiple animal-rights groups supporting the law that seems to emphasize or deal mostly with rabbits, then I don't see a problem calling them the "rabbit people" either.

    Overall, meh.
  • This is ridiculous. I'm with the PD on this one (and that's rare). They have better things to do than track down people selling pet bunnies on the street. When there's no other crime in San Angeles, then yeah listen to the bleeding-heart animal morons. But in the meantime, do something about the gang violence, mmkay?

    Charles.
  • Day-um. Not like that's gonna bite you in the ass, Officer Moran...
  • "Illegal animal traffickers"?

    The Latino community is going to be livid.
  • I have to say I'm ok with this.

    We can't really get upset when police completely ignore what the general public wants, and then turn around and also get upset when they change their policy and actions to be more in line with what makes everyone happy.

    If anything, I just kind of wish the same pressure was used to increase arrests in more useful areas, like violent crime, unlicenced door-to-door encylopedia peddling, etc.

    This. Maintaining the image of his dept is one of his responsibilities, right? He didn't use disparaging language and wtf else are we supposed to call rabbit people? No big fan of LEOs here, but I failed to be scandalized the least little bit by what he did. What's scandalous is that a PD has to engage in media campaigns and enforce stupid assed laws to kow-tow to special interests over frigging animals when there is real crime against people going on.

    Somebody still sells encyclopedias? LOL.
  • I dont see the problem. He didnt totally dismiss the bunny people. He wanted his cops to make a few arrests. That is far more than the issue is worth. Lets see, what kind of crimes are happening all over that city. Murder, rape, child abuse, shootings, assaults.... and some nuts are worried about bunnies? Seriously?? Screw the bunnies. The chief appears to be, and well should be, more worried about significant crimes.

    It's a lot easier now that they put them on those new fangled compact disc thingies.
  • I am with the "meh" crowd on this one. I am also with the "Paul Ryan progeria comments made me giggle" crowd.
  • What the f@!#. The dude reminds his cops 'Hey there was this law that was passed about BUNNY SALES, maybe you could try to enforce it a bit in between the multiple homicides and all the other hardcore shiat that goes down in Los Angeles every day.' Is this really a scandal?

    I gotta echo a lot of other people here and say there's a lot to hate about how cops sometimes act, but this is absolutely nothing.
  • how many times a day do cops encounter someone they could charge a crime to and they let them go? if you are by chance the ones let go on a warning, you would thank them.

    now to say, no one gets a warning, isn't that how it should be?
  • Does it bother no one here that a highly placed law enforcement officer is too stupid to avoid "reply to all"?
  • Making fun of bald people makes me sad, but that guy looks like the "house of the undying" guy from Game of Thrones season two.

  • "We must make more rabbit arrests for the Hobbitses, my precioussssssssssssssss!!!!"
