I have no cat....

But the cats in the Houston PD must be crazy.

They have issued a new regulation to all their police officers that they cannot shoot at a car that is coming toward them, unless they fear their life is in danger from something other than the car that is about to run them over.

You gotta be kidding me. Sounds like the politicians have realized that funerals are cheaper than lawsuits.


It is true, they cannot shoot at the cat, because you cannot be sure it is in fact there. And if it happens to be not there you may hurt someone. Given the track record of US police of never shooting someone in error, they are worried to mess up the flawless reputation.
