    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Actually am told the dog taste a little like pork but quite fatty so doesn't have the tecture of meats like cow. Since dogs are fed like livestock I doubt it would be gamey.

The only exception was if they saw a person being physically attacked or felt their own lives were at risk. The cop probably wrote in his report that he felt his life was at risk by a six ounce rodent.

    My policeman neighbor would bust a gut laughing at that. I'm pretty sure that if he'd gotten that call, he'd have told school administrators to get the kids inside, then waited for animal control to collect the squirrel... and he'd have done so without torturing the creature first.

    You're not going to change my opinion that the cop was a cowardly jerk, and I'm not going to change your opinion that the cop was a brave and laudable hero. *shrug* I'm done here.
    that right there tells me you're full of it.

    Please... point me to the post where i even implied that.

    Did you read the story? Apparently said squirrel was attacking the chirruns at the school. Sweeping it away with his foot would probably not have the appropriate result since Rocky wasnt intimidated by noise, stomping, or screaming and running children. Now...maybe the school would have been better served if they hadnt called the police to respond in the first place, but since the kids and the school deemed it a threat, and since he probably would have got in more trouble for pulling a weapon and blasting it...maybe this was the right thing to do...or maybe animal control could have been called.

    What is it with people and their whiny freakout nature regarding cops and pepper spray? its not mustard gas, people.

    Sorry, you don't get to call out people for their "whiny freakout nature" when you're defending a cop who pepper sprayed a baby squirrel.
