• I recently wrote about a former Texas state trooper who was fired and now faces sexual assault charges for performing a roadside cavity search on two women who’d been stopped for littering. Dale Roberts, executive director of the Columbia Police Officers Association in Missouri, apparently thinks that’s a really humorous story. “It’s called Customer Service! We just did it so they wouldn’t have to make the trip all the way downtown,” he posted on Facebook. The association is a chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police, a union for law enforcement officers.
• The annual Easter egg hunt at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Wash., turned into a brawl thanks to a couple of the mothers. One woman reportedly pushed aside a child so that her own child could get at the eggs. The second child’s mother then stepped in and the two women began fighting and one of them got a bloody nose.
