Cops decorate cruiser with graffiti

56043990 (2)

The graffiti was not done by vandals. Miramar police officers thought it would make their 2003 Crown Victoria look a little more approachable. The in Law and Order Magazine recognized it as one of the best in the nation in their Police Vehicle Design Contest. The Sun Sentinel's Michael Laughlin shot this photo.
Here is the story.

Slow news day? Dogs in high-speed chase

On Fox news live TV, a helicopter followed a white and a black dog running away from police officers Monday morning.

The reporters nicknamed the running dogs "White Wedding and Black Beauty."

A pretty blond reporter pouted her lips and said: "I am concerned because now they are on side streets, there is no body to run -- you know. Yeeeees, it's scary ... They could be somebody's pets or they could be strays, we don't know.".

Huh? Their nonsensical commentary went on for at least 2 minutes, and when the reporters could not ignore how comical this was, a reporter asked another:

"Do you think they committed a crime and this is a pursuit?"

I guess we will never know where the dogs came from or why they were running. The Fox news helicopter, police officers and animal control lost sight of them after they ran into a residential neighborhood.

The Miami Herald's Continuous News Desk producers are always ready for a high-speed chase, but this one is just making us all "LOL."

Disturbing animal cruelty

Warning: The videos below contain graphic content.

A girl in Croatia threw six little puppies into a river. Her merciless act was caught on tape. It was published on LiveLeak, and has now gone viral on the web.

A few days ago, authorities released CCTV tape showing a woman throwing a cat into a garbage can. You've probably already seen this video.

In the U.S., not a single federal law protects farm animals from cruelty in factory farms. Mercy for Animals investigators go undercover regularly to report "callous disregard for animal welfare" at farms. This morning they released a video reporting alleged abuse on calves at a farm in Ohio. Here is the story.
