Comment of the Day: Cocking a Shotgun? Grow a Pair, Houston

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 posted video of an HPD cop trying to quiet a somewhat unruly crowd of Houston Free Thinkers by cocking his shotgun.

Houston, you're all wusses, one reader said.

I'm a native Los Angeleno living on west bellfort. As fucked up as this shit was, it's pretty tame by LAPD standards. A cop cocking a shotgun? That's fucking 8am at any LA middle school. Grow a pair Houstonians and fight the power. Yeah, HPD. I said it.
