    Yakety Sax never fails to deliver.

    I was shooting late Friday down on East Broome. We were beside a station where cops pulled into a bay to gas up their cars. At least 5 undercover cars showed up. Man, these guys were so undercover I would not have looked twice at them. I wonder how many undercover cops I tell to go fuck themselves when they cut me off in my car.

    Must be nicer.

    this. I've seen some undercover cops pull yellow cabs over, and besides the badge around the neck, these guys were srsly undercover.

    A few months ago I posted about the latest undercover cop and undercover car that I've discovered - police duty yellow cabs.

    When I was in NYC in August, one of those pulled a car over about a block from Times Square. Cop was in uniform. My g/f was shocked speechless (no mean feat) as were a couple of tourists.

    here's a picture of one I snapped this past summer. You can see the headlights are in mid-flash, there's also flashing red lights in the grill. And, as you can see, those are all undercover cops.

    I've seen those as well as delivery vans, though I guess the later is pretty common for stakeouts.

    I love NYC cops as they don't sweat the small stuff. We were shooting rat hunters at this cop shop and saw a rat run up into a three wheeled traffic vehicle. The hunters started banging on it and a cop comes over to ask WTF we were doing. After hearing the explanation he said, "You need to bang harder" and left us alone.

    Cops 1: rats 0.

    NYC has many rats.
    There are people who hunt rats with dogs for shits and giggles and to retain the working temperament of the dogs.
    lefty has signed them to pitch a show based on their exploits.
    ?
    Profit.

    Ah, thanks. Had no idea what you do for a living. I thought "shooting" referred to a firing range or something.

    got it. i have a boston terrier/french bulldog mix that goes fucking nuts when she's out for walks at night and sees a rat up ahead. Trash nights are the worst, she shreaks in her desire to hunt them.

    I wish. All hell must break loose when a rat wanders into the last shooting range in manhattan.

    Has she ever killed one? Those are bragging rights.

    Trust me, come the apocalypse you'll be lining up for Rat du Jour.

    nope. i don't want her to stink like that before she goes to bed.


    a few years ago, I was walking my parent's yorkie through the woods, and she caught a mouse. she knew she wasn't supposed to so she quickly swallowed it before I even noticed. too bad for her i saw the tail as it went down. gross.
