Ass Clowns of the Week: Columbia Police


The results are in and in overwhelming fashion Daily RFT readers have voted the Columbia, Missouri, police department as last Friday's Ass Clowns of the Week.

The Columbia po-po won nearly 69 percent of the vote after video footage surfaced last week showing the cops shooting two dogs during a raid of an alleged drug dealer's home. Only the guy didn't appear to be a drug dealer, and the dogs were shot in front of his wife and young son.

Second place with 23 percent of the vote was Anthony Pork, the man who pushed a pregnant woman from his vehicle during a high-speed police chase through St. Louis.
