Mesquite ISD Cop Pepper-Sprays Squirrel As Students Shriek In Protest

Sometimes a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

This clip is going around the web, of an officer apparently with the Mesquite ISD polie force, pepper-spraying a squirrel.

Highlights: One student believes the cop is about to Tase the thing, which would have been exciting; also, the middle school girls shriek and call the officer by name begging him not to spray the poor widdle thing.
