Then there's this moron.



Personally, if I were the cop, I would have blown out the window to save the dog. As well as had the ASPCA on the way to ticket her @$$ for animal cruelty.

I have a friend who is a total activist when it comes to animals. Shes an ASPCA worker, so I call her anytime I see something horrible.
Around here in horse country, a common horrible thing to see is horses/cows on crappy little dirt lots starving away with the redneck owners happily drinking natty lite on the trailer porch talkin about the day they'll be able to afford a new yamaha four wheeler. These people keep x amount of animals on their property for tax purposes usually. I think they have kids for similar reasons, or just for fun.
The neighboring property where my bus is stored has over 20 horses and cows on it and its about 8 acres. Their ribcages are all visible. The police came and supposedly took care of it three weeks ago, but nothing has changed. SO MANY horses are suffering in this way. Starvation is the cruelest form of abuse/neglect.

in my high school days, I kept a spring loaded center punch in my driver's door recessed door handle






Now, I keep a safety hammer on a velcro loop on my driver's door handle, and kept 3 in the limo.


I've seen videos of these spring loaded models that work well


I was the 3rd person to stop at an accident about 18 months ago...
Lady hit a tree on driver's side, she was alert and car was not smoking, so I took my triangle reflectors and placed them up the road (curve) and came back to her car.

When I got back, city police were just getting there. I watched the officer take his baton and hit her passenger at least 6 times to break it. Looked pretty radical!!!

he finally broke it, sending glass flying.
Someone had reached in from driver's BACK door and placed a towel over the lady, her driver's door was jammed against the tree.

I know the spring loaded glass breakers just shatter the glass, leaving it intact, then you push it out.
It just surprised me that an officer doesn't have a glass breaker/seatbelt cutter on his tool belt.

I've got a co-worker that's president of the animal shelter here.... she's on speed dial, and it works!

Maintaining animals PROPERLY is expensive, and there's a lot of people out there that just don't care.

Cops here have a glass breaker on the back end of their flashlights.

didn't get to edit my previous post in time, but here's a pic from that accident

she was coming from opposite direction and basically hit 2 trees

That was the day I got to see one of Arkansas State Trooper's Stealth Cruisers (plain on driver's side, decaled on passenger side)
