They won't let me imbed the image, because Satan. But that is the cutest squirrel you ever saw, despite the glowing red eyes and the way it glares at you with total hatred.

That is so cute.

Police-overreach. Plain and simple. That squirrel was too cute to be arrested.

Can't we just arrest Man-eating squirrels? Hell, how about black squirrels? That's justice, right?

Why is it that I suspect the squirrel was smarter than the suspect?

It's rare when we agree but today it happened.

A man has every right to defend his home. If there was ever a time for a Constitutional Amendment, now is that time.

The lost 11th Amendment to the Bill of Rights: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Attack Squirrels, shall not be infringed."

Rumor has it the paperwork for this Amendment was lost by Ben Franklin due to his obsession with the Turkey. He never did like competition. Like the 27th Amendment, it's time this was ratified even if its 200 years later.

So a black guy reaching for a cell phone makes cops fear for their lives and shoot him 55 times but a white guy with a methed up attack squirrel is ok?

There is no such thing as an attack squirrel. These are trumped up charges.

I contacted the PD over this one, and they where pretty adamant. "You have no idea what a squirrel on meth is like. Our officers feared for their lives...."

"What if it runs up your trouser leg and goes straight for your nuts? You would have to pull the pin and hug your own grenade to avoid the pain!"

Yeah, the level of concern was high, as well as the pucker factor. Thank God they didn't shoot it 55 times.

If that thing came at me I'd use the royal hand grenade.

When I was a little kid in Florida, my dad would feed the squirrels on our land behind our house. One day he ran out of nuts so the squirrel ran up his leg jumped onto his hand and bit him through his thumb and locked on. The poor guy couldn't get it to release and there he was trying the choke the thing to death while the trying to get it off of his thumb. I don't recall if he got rabie shots or not but he did stop feeding the squirrels.
