A group of school children took a cell phone video of a police office in Mesquite, Texas police officer showering a baby squirrel with pepper spray. Then they did with the evidence of cruelty what kid’s now-a-days do…they uploaded it to YouTube.
HuffPo: The video was recorded by a student at Kimbrough Middle School in Mesquite, Texas, according to Fox 5 New York. In it, students are heard pleading for the officer to stop, shouting things like “Don’t spray him!”
According to Sgt. Wes Talley of the Mesquite Police Department, the animal was only sprayed after the officer, alleged to be an Officer Davis on the cell phone video, made serval unsuccesful attempts to scare the squirrel away. The pepper spray Davis said, was for the welfare of the children.
The welfare of the children?Although it’s far more dangerous that the children are directly exposed to the pepper spray the officer is so valiantly showering the rodent with.
Beware, criminals of Mesquite, Texas, If Officer Davis catches you, you can only hope, that he isn’t carrying his pepper spray…
