This is the
worlds first monkey cop. His name is Santisuk. Santisuk is a
5-year-old pig-tailed macaque, and is a proud member of the Thaipolice,
doing his best to keep the streets crime-free. Well, maybe I’m
exaggerating a little bit, since Santisuk is really just a
mascot for thepoliceforce

No, it's not an Indian attack... Those are actually trajectory
rods. A Schertz police officer escaped serious injury despite a hail of
gunfire from two weapons fired by a 48-year-old Comal County man he had
stopped for speeding. Schertz Police Chief Stephen Starr said Officer
Richard Kunz pulled over Michael Kennedy for speeding on north
Interstate 35 near FM 1103 at 11:30 p.m. During the stop, Officer Kunz
noticed Kennedy was carrying a handgun. Kennedy then grabbed an assault
rifle out of his car and began firing. Kennedy fired 30 rounds from it
and then from a .9mm handgun, Starr said. Officer Kunz, hidden behind
his cruiser, managed to fire 16 shots. Three of the shots hit Kennedy in
the back and neck. Kennedy was listed Friday in serious condition at
Brooke Army Medical Center. Kunz was not hurt but his patrol car was
riddled with 30 bullets. ”Our officer was extremely lucky,” Starr said.
“We do a lot of firearms training here, and he reverted to the training
that we initiated here at the department and everything fell into place.
And that’s what we look for.” Starr said three weapons and several
magazines of ammunition, including a sidearm in a holster, were
recovered from Kennedy’s car. Thanks to everyone at the
for their help in researching this story.
Posted 12/08/07: Methamphetamine High
A police hostage negotiator talks to a
highly embarrassed but lucky meth user in order to keep him calm. This
guy did a "leap of faith" on an Easter weekend (2005). While on a
crystal meth ‘run’ of consecutive several days without sleep, the
religious programming on the radio prompted him to jump buck-naked out
of his hotel window as it seemed like his "soul was being read by
Christ" and this was a test he had to do to show his faith. He escaped
serious injury or death when he accidentally landed (and stuck) to a
wire thereby allowing an emergency extraction by the Fire Department.
Three German teenagers posed as police officers at the Munich
Oktoberfest with the intention of "frisking" the prettiest attendants at
the festival. The creative teens dressed up for the festival and then
claimed to be searching for weapons in the crowd. They would approach
the women they liked best to ask them to submit to a search. One of the
women complained to the police station that she had been subjected to "a
too intimate frisk." The real police went out to investigate and found
the teenagers and arrested them for sexual harassment, indecent behavior
and impersonating law enforcement officers.

Sheriff's deputy dressed as leprechaun an unlucky omen on Florida road
ORLANDO, Florida (AP) _ There was no pot of gold behind the dancing
roadside leprechaun, only speeding tickets. Dozens of drivers in the
Orlando area found out the hard way Thursday after passing an Orange
County sheriff's deputy dressed as a leprechaun and warning drivers to
slow down. A laser detector clocked cars above his sign reading ''Watch
your speed or it will cost you your pot of gold,'' and several officers
on motorcycles chased those who did not heed the advice. Deputy Richard
Lockman said police had been giving out about a ticket a minute since 8
a.m. He was dressed in a green leprechaun outfit with a hat, tight white
knickers and a fake red beard. Speeders complained that being stopped by
a deputy in costume was entrapment. ''I think that's just ridiculous,''
Lockman said. ''The elf didn't force anybody to speed.

Worlds Smallest Police Dog -
In Geauga County, Ohio there is a new K-9 deputy on patrol. But when it
comes to taking a bite out of crime, this deputy dog will be taking very
small portions. Here comes "Midge," two pounds of raw recruit police
power. A 3-month-old miniature Chihuahua with a little Rat Terrier mixed
in, who has one major talent right now. "Cute, she is cute, she is
little, she's very friendly, she likes people a lot," Geauga Sheriff Dan
McClelland said. Midge, in her little uniform, is already patrolling the
hallways at the county jail and the sheriff has plans to train her as
the smallest drug dog in the state of Ohio."

Do You See The Pig?
Some people are claiming that they see a pigs face in the Cleveland
police logo. A recent newspaper article did some editing, taking away
bordering and edging on an image of the logo and the result was the
image of a pig. “We had that in the academy. Every 10 years or so,
someone comes out saying something like that. There are a lot bigger
issues other than what our badge looks like,” said CPPA President Steve
Loomis. The logo dates back to the late 1960s when the department
revamped their look. Right after the Hough Riots, it was changed in an
attempt to change the face of the police department.
