Now, Sir, About That Poop Bag
“A Montara man walking two lapdogs off leash [in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area] was hit with an electric-shock gun by a National Park Service ranger after allegedly giving a false name and trying to walk away, authorities said Monday.” [SF Chronicle]
That seems like a completely logical reaction. Those lapdogs could have done untold damage, widdling all over everything.
“The ranger was trying to educate residents of the rule, Levitt said.”
Mission Accomplished, probably.
Don’t the park rangers get rifles and bayonets? This guy and his two Al Qaeda operatives could have taken out the bridge and the whole park if the stun gun failed.
Park rangers actually have very dangerous jobs. A ranger at Mt. Rainer was killed a couple of weeks ago by a vet with PTSD when she stopped the guy when he blew through a check point. She left behind a husband and son. I’m sure that was going through this ranger’s head as she tased the guy. The vet froze to death up on the mountain, btw.
These fucking off leash dog people bug the shit out of me. Here in Santa Fe, they have a deep sense of entitlement and carry on like the law doesn’t apply to them and their precious special doggies. There’s no enforcement anyway. The only animal control officer I’ve ever seen weighed about 350 lbs and probably had never set foot on a walking trail in his life.
I’ll just leave this here:

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: newell’s going back to Brand W? Once, just once, I want one of these “I’m jumping ship” cats to say ” I’m moving over to Fleshbot to cover my real passion: fisting”.
@peggynooner: Just wait until Brian leaves.
@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: And where’s Hunter these days? At the NY Observer, writing about Mitt’s dog.
Megan’s running Raw Story. So that just leaves Greg unaccounted for.
@nojo: TCP’s Wikipedia entry. Deeeeleeted. “Reason given: not notable, lack of reliable sources.”
@FlyingChainSaw: My buddy who is a game and fish officer working by himself in remote stretches of NE New Mexico carries his department issued sidearm, a backup gun, knife, pepper spray, baton, and has a rifle and 12 ga. shotgun in the truck. His job duties include walking up to armed people in the middle of nowhere to check for game or license violations. Dude was a biology major who was at the top of his class at the law enforcement academy.
