La. Deputies Used Journo's Face for Target Practice

March 05, 2012  | 

St. Bernard Parish (La.) Sheriff Jack Stephens has apologized for the "bad taste" showed by several deputies who used the picture of a television reporter during target practice, reports Fox 8.

The deputies had fired shots at a picture of Fox 8's Lee Zurik, who had released an investigative report last last year about voter fraud in the parish that claimed deputies from the agency voted in elections even though they lived outside of the jurisdiction.

So, I use to use my x-wifes when I qualified. Big deal.

Just don't use the face of Mohammed or POTUS. Anybody else is OK. Well, maybe there are a few others..

Shucks, does this mean I can't use my zombie targets? Do they have a lawyer? Maybe a union? Sure wouldn't want to offend anyone, anywhere, anytime. Baa, Baa.........
