Missouri Police Shoots Concrete Alligator

Rick Sheridan from Independence in Missouri was having a normal work day at his garage when he heard some gun shots outside. When he went out as fast as he could he spotted three police officers standing right beside and aiming at his concrete alligator sculpture in his backyard.

They thought it was real, but when they realized that their bullets just bounced off the concrete reptile, they took off as fast as they could.

Sheridan is disappointed because he now has to patch up and fix his dear backyard sculpture. Unnecessary police behaviour; they didn’t even apologize.

  1. well we can at least be thankful that they were temporairly distracted by an inanimate object. otherwise it could have just as easily been an innocent real life human being this could have been happening to as is usually the case. and does it suprise us anymore that they dont apologize for what they do wrong. but then i guess that would mean countless man hours at the taxpayers expense for them to basically hire an “apology unit” to the force.

    It’s amazing how they can open fire on something that is incapable of posing any kind of danger. How do we all stand a chance against these overzealous incompetents with the means and license to kill?

    Even if it was real, why would they shoot it? That’s why every city has Animal Control. Idiots.

    Do some research. The Police did contact the Missouri Conservation Department, “who said that if the officer did locate the alligator, to go ahead and put it down.”
    Also, the officer fired two rounds.
    The call came in when a child told his parents he had seen an alligator along a creek. The man told police he had put the “alligator there to keep kids off his property.”
