Comment of the Day: Always with the Negativity

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We wrote about how security-cam footage seems to belie HPD's version of events surrounding the topless-club arrest of activist Ray Hill.

One reader chastised us for always being so negative about cops.

YourPublicationIsAJoke nailed us to the wall:

Should have took his hands out of his pockets. All it takes is the muscles aligning your index finger in order to be a threat. I'm guessing the 71 year old gay amputee could still perform this action.

Keep up the good work, how about next week you post about the HPD officer that revived a 4 month old inside the Galleria 2 nights ago, instead of always trying to focus on the negative...

But I guess that doesn't sell "web hits", does it?
