  1. That was awesome ,great sense of humor by the men and women in blue that sacrifice their lives everyday for us , thank you for making our family laugh , take care and be safe and know we support you law enforcement 100 percent 🙏

  2. Holey Moley! That stuff is all over the place! Here in Wisconsin also. Getting to be an almost “epidemic” over here. ☺ Thanks for the humor for today. We enjoyed it immensely! Thanks for all your sacrifices to the “Men in Blue” everyday to keep us all safe!…all across the USA! GOD Bless You All!

  3. Shameful! Police treating as a joke something as awful as this.
    Why, to get away from that suspicious white powder is just exactly why many of us moved to Southern Arizona.
    Seriously, there really oughta be a law against that four-letter word, and it should never be allowed to be uttered in public.
    I mean, just what do we have police for?

  4. So glad out tax dollars are being used to promote Police State propaganda until they kill another American because they felt threatened.Next we’ll see videos of helping old ladies cross the street or getting kitty’s out of trees. Give me a break, the govt enforcers are not your friend.

    • Are you serious? In these very serious worrisome times it’s good to have a sense of humor, go get one it’s free.
