Cowboy Cops Pollute Sac Streets
Steven Greenhut: I just saw a Sacramento city police officer take off on horse like a bat out of hell after a man clad in business attire crossed the street before the light changed to green. There were no cars around, so it seemed like a bit of an overreaction but it probably was fun to get a horse to gallop in the heart of the city. I waited for the light to change simply because I saw the horseback-riding gendarme staring at us. I guess when there’s nothing much to do, minor infractions become big deals.
Well, if Sacramento police are going to make a big deal out minor things, then they ought to do something about all the horse manure piles that these police officers leave around town. They do get picked up eventually, but I’ve seen the piles sitting there for quite some time. There are horse diapers that are available, but perhaps with all the sky high police pensions there’s not much left for officers to clean up after themselves.
I wonder what would happen if I let my dog leave some big piles in the middle of downtown Sacramento and then walked away. Would cowboy cop come galloping after me?
