Hamster placed in protective custody after DUI stop.

I don’t know what to make of this, except perhaps questioning the use of government resources to this degree…?

Or not?

Or to question this actually became a ‘news’ story?  Slow news day?

I would think in most of the rest of the World, the animal might have been left to it’s own devices, killed, or eaten.

  1. My sons had hamsters many long years ago. I don’t know if this gal had hers drugged or what, but it is not in this creature’s nature to calmly sit in someone’s lap anywhere, and I would assume that goes more than double for riding in a car. The whole story is simply not believable from any angle.

    And then…. there’s the part you bring up, indeed. Who the heck cares and why should we pay for this nonsense?

  2. The police probably impounded her car. Anything live wouldn’t be left in the vehicle. Makes a cute story.

  4. I understand the hamster in question has since been moved to town on the outskirts of Hialeah, FL. and has been given a new identity.

  5. Re: today’s video: David Jansen didn’t know much about handling guns! And, as for holstering, he has it stuffed into the front of his pants, and it’s backwards for a lefty. “La Muneca” is Spanish for “The Doll”, which is in keeping with the Noir spirit, but forget the doll, Barbara Bain Grrrrrowlll!
