This turd should have fallen two or three times between hook up to booking. We can understand some pos disliking the uniform, but an animal? Sure would like a little quiet time with this asswipe. Blues, Stay Safe.

I believe the horse was racially profiling.

I've got a mule that would have stomped him into paste for such a stupid and lowlife act...maybe police mules might work out?
