“Pawfficer Donut” Becomes Michigan’s First Police Cat | The Daily Show

September 13, 2019

These days a lot of people are criticizing the police not me of course because I love the police in fact when people say the police I say yeah, I want to Hard I want make love to the police. I love the police and cops around the country are making changes by, Michigan That’s one Police Department that’s going way too far There is a new sheriff in town today the Detroit Police Department’s newest pofficer was sworn in for duty the latest recruit to the Detroit Police Department feline unit meet pofficer doughnuts ready to report for duty Officer donut is the first official police cat in Michigan to show that the police have a human side, too Wow the police got a kitten finally Colin Kapernick can stand How is this supposed to humanize the police liking cats doesn’t make you sympathetic It makes you every lonely person on Instagram right And look I get that law enforcement today is willing to do anything to get people to like them except obviously not shoot black people But this won’t work because throwing cats at a problem never solved anything, right? I learned that the hard way during a grease fire in my apartment Ronnie Ronnie, I feel like you’re taking this too seriously I’m taking this too, seriously Yo The police had the judge swear the cat in judge Nielsen Hartig and judge McGinnis performed the ceremony asking pofficer dona to raise her right Paul She promised to protect and serve act as an ambassador to the community be tolerant of the k-9 unit and even cuddle when needed Okay, first of all, if you ever spent any time if a cat, you know that that oath is bullshit Okay The only oath a cat ever keeps is to show you his butthole and terrible couch Ronnie you are being heartless the cats so cute. I’m being heartless Yo Just listen to how the cops treated their previous cat the campaign to fill their feline unit has that ups and downs this week? They found out the original Kitty recruit pofficer badges as feline leukemia It’s a good thing. We had officer donut in the wings that was able to rise to the occasion that Police department is cold. All right, that first police cat got cancer. So they replaced him with another cat Who fires our sick kitten? Now officer badges isn’t just dealing with Kitty leukemia. He’s an alcoholic too Probably down at a local bar lapping Jameson out of a saucer Hey, Ronnie, I don’t mean to make it personal but are you or you okay, man? This seems like something that touches you Yeah, it is Because Detroit Michigan PD is treating police cats like their little mascots and they’re not and I know that because my own cat Also joined the police force Do you have any idea what it’s like to live with a police cat? Waiting up all night for sergeant mr. Snuggles to come home And then one day getting a call from the chief with the woods, you’ve you’ve always dreaded your cat Got stuck in the wall again I’m so sorry Ronny Chang everyone

    While I've always liked pussy in uniform, I smell something fishy here. First, it's sad that they think this makes them seem more human. Secondly, is the cat technically a sworn officer? Like if it runs out into the road and you run over it, will you get life in prison for killing an officer? Thirdly, I didn't hear anything about qualifications, training or blood line. There is a strict policy for attaining dogs for the K9 team. I'd guess this puss was a wandering vigilante, who takes the law into her own paws based purely on instinct and feelings!

    these LEO were probably just data mining the internet for what is "popular". In the long term US LEO will want to use AI which even Google's Artificial Brain has already developed a penchant for classifiying cat images. Cute yes but approach with caution.

    Wake me up when the justice system actually applies justice equally regardless of race, ethnicity, economic status, gender, or sexual orientation. I love kitties. But Pawfficer Donut is a terrible stunt. It's easy to like a kitten. It's hard to actually protect and serve a diverse citizenry with respect and dignity. The hard thing is the police's JOB! Stop the easy distractions, Troy PD. Do the hard thing or turn in your badges…

    We are aware of emails/contacts you have made with different individuals within the Circuit Court of Montgomery County Maryland reference case number 95743FL. Courthouse staff and myself are aware of your situation and have determined that we are unable to assist you any further. Please refrain from sending any more correspondence of any kind to any individuals within the courthouse.

    Lieutenant Troy Plummer
    Montgomery County Sheriff's Office
    This officer sent me the above email on behalf of my white ex. I am scared of my ex, his lawyers, the court and the police. My rights have been violated. I was blackmailed in 2015 by my ex and his lawyers I didn't testify only my ex-testified, my witnesses didn't testify only my ex and his witnesses testified, my evidence was not given to the Judge only my ex-evidence was given to the Judge. This court has violated all my rights as an American citizen. I don't like it.
    I am scared of this police officer, I am scared to go to court to read my file, I am scared of my life. I just want my son. My son wants to come back home. My ex-came to use me because his wife could bear him children so they plotted to steal mine. I want my son. Somebody, please help me. I have posted my story on facebook but my facebook posts get deleted. I posted some on youtube and my emails got deleted. I just want my son. I know how police mistreat black people. I am very scared of the above police officer.
    He is not part of my custody case. I am scared of him.

    Gimme those little baby kittens. They deserve better than to be used as a mascot, as a distraction from real issues. I don't even want to think about them being hurt because they're caught in some kind of crossfire regarding these issues or people cheering it's pain like they do when police k9s are hurt or killed.
