Comment of the Day: Cops Get Dissed Over Squirrel Incident

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.

Our item with a video of a Texas school-district cop pepper-spraying a squirrel, as a horde of middle-school girls shrieked in horror, caused a big discussion.

A lot of it focused on whether the squirrel might have had rabies, but one reader didn't need that angle to make his judgment about cops, their weight and their habits.

Wow, another classic example of some fatty cop doing something their not supposed to be doing. While cops are loosing their jobs, we keep the ones that are intimidated by a baby squirrel, classic. What an idiot!
