Hunky Florida cops to pose for calendar after post goes viral (update: puppies)

puppyandcops
Update by Celebitchy: Officer Hamill, the guy in the center of this photo with the beard puppy face, is under investigation for some rather horrible anti-Semitic posts on Facebook. He is not the single one, that’s the hottie to our right with the black hair, Officer Rengering. This information had not yet been published when Corey wrote this post.

Update 2: There you go detritus! Great suggestion.


Hurricane Irma did significant damage to the Caribbean, Florida and Georgia and had devastating effects on the residents of these areas. Heck, my folks in Naples are still without power and here, in Atlanta, a man a few streets down from me died when a tree fell and crushed his house. While the aftermath of the storm is still leaving many reeling, some Facebook posts from an unlikely source are creating some smiles when they’re really needed most.

In between sharing news of road closures, flooding notices and important updates, the Gainesville, Florida police department’s page shared an innocent enough photo of a trio of officers that went viral. The photo of the three handsome officers was captioned “Officers Nordman, Hamill and Rengering…part of the night crew getting ready to do some work.”

The image of the arrestingly handsome officers got the page’s followers all hot and bothered, and they took to the comments section to acknowledge the hard work (and bodies) of the public servants. The post received 110,000 comments, over 280,000 likes and more than 170,000 shares (I think a good percentage of those came from my Facebook friends). The comments are internet gold – and one lady shared a clever idea “So, looks like my next vacation will be spent in Gainesville rolling through stop signs and driving with a tail light out every evening until I’ve been pulled over by the entire night shift. It’s gonna get expensive, and my insurance premiums will go through the roof from all those tickets, but… *fans self with a stack of travel brochures and birth control pamphlets*”

Other GPD followers requested that the boys in blue pose for a calendar for charity, which the department listened to, In an update to the post they wrote:

UPDATE:
1. We are dying with the comments. You’ve actually made our chief blush with some of them.
2. MRS. Nordman and MRS. Hamill have also enjoyed knowing how millions of women are going crazy over their husbands.
3. We can confirm that Officer Rengering (far right with the amazing hair) IS SINGLE.
4. On another note, Officer Rengering is being placed into Cougar Prey Protective Care, similar to the witness protection program for his safety.
5. Please do not call 9-1-1 and request this group respond to your “incident”
6. There WILL be a calendar.

Thank you all for the hilarious comments…they have brightened our time up here. As for the calendar, we are going to try and do something fairly quickly and funds raised will go to Hurricane Irma recovery here in Florida.

[From the Gainesville Police Department Facebook page]

An interview with the officers was posted on TIME’s website on Wednesday. Officer Michael Hamill (the one in the middle) said, “I’ve never had this much attention before. It’s an ego boost — very flattering and funny.” The 28-year-old, who was married last March, added, “My wife, she obviously wasn’t happy at first, but she’s taking it like a champ.” Officer Dan Rengering (on the right) is single and wouldn’t mind his own season on The Bachelor. The 27-year-old Florida Gator fan (you lost me there, sorry. Go ‘Noles!) said, “I wouldn’t think twice about it.”

So, while these men are enjoying their 15 minutes of fame, they’re also using it to do good, which means, yes, the calendar is happening. The announcement came via Ellen De Generes’ Twitter feed. After the department sent the pic to the talk show host, she replied, “Right now the internet wants more photos of them.” The department came back with, “That’s easy. The calendar is already in the works … with pre-orders coming soon. We want to get funds rolling to #Irma victims quickly.”

And, since there are 12 months on a calendar, the GPD is going to need eight more officers. Well, make that seven. After the initial post went viral, the department posted some photos of one Officer Hatcher, who cannot be Mr. February, as that isn’t enough time to gaze upon this gorgeous specimen of a man. His photo was posted with the caption, “More of the amazing first responders taking care of business post-Irma! Officer Hatcher here.” The image promoted one commenter to assert that “I’m convinced this police department is fake and this is actually an ad for Magic Mike 3.”

Headline News anchor Robin Meade interviewed Officer Hatcher and I kind of want to commit a misdemeanor right about now.

And, if one pic of Officer Hatcher wasn’t enough, the department posted one of him next to a fallen tree, posing Karate Kid style. The GPD’s social media person is having far too much fun in his or her role, captioning the snap, “We’re gonna blame this tree down on Officer Hatcher.”

With all of the attention Gainesville got for their posts, it’s natural that other local law enforcement agencies would share their own foxy first responders. The Sarasota Police Department showcased a few of their FINE-est, captioning the snap, “Officers Raulerson, Craig, Gloeckner & Hughes responded to help our friends at the North Port Police Department & North Port Fire Department this afternoon with rescues due to rising floodwaters from Hurricane Irma. Gainesville Police Department has nothing on us 😉” Upon seeing the post, the GPD replied, “Not bad, SPD. They don’t have awesome hair…but they’ll do.”

The Knoxville PD also got in on the act, and added a K-9 officer to up the “Awww” ante. They also issued a challenge to Gainesville to help raise money for the victims of Irma, posting, “If you leave a comment, then make a small donation in the name of either the Gainesville PD or Knoxville PD to your favorite charity to help Hurricane Irma victims in Florida. We’re confident the Volunteers of Tennessee will see that our KPD officers take it to those gators once again!”

Knoxville PD

It’s been a tough week, and this fun rivalry between some fellas who are definitely easy on the eyes is a much-needed diversion. They are going above and beyond their job duties. They’re not only protecting and serving, they’re bringing happiness and raising funds that can help counter some of the destruction and damage that Irma caused. Thanks, guys. (And if you could get power restored to my parents, that would be great.)

PS – After I posted this, my Florida Facebook friends shared the following photo from the Pembroke Pines PD. If they had this many cute cops in Florida when I lived there, I would never have moved. Sigh.

    Eh I’m not into this because I’m not into cops. So when police brutality is a thing of the past maybe I can enjoy this.
    Until then…pass

    • QueenB says:

      Yeah straight women just need to see a handsome face and everything is fine. Police bruta what? Never heard of it.

      • third ginger says:

        All too true. And one is a vile anti-semite. Handsome is as handsome does.

      • kaiko says:

        yes indeedy…and how obvious are all the other douche bro cops jumping on the bandwagon, looking for a bit of $$ or whatever…at least 5 of the above ping my gaydar something fierce despite their poser-ing machismo…though i definitely wouldn’t mind stroking Offr. Hatcher’s arms if ever given the opportunity

      • Skylark says:

        @QueenB – really, stop with the broadbrushing. If you’re a straight woman, speak for yourself. If you’re not, then stop thinking you’re an authority on what (a) gets a straight woman’s juices flowing and (b) what she’ll ignore – in your opinion – because of those flowing juices.

        I’m a straight female and, before we ever knew the grim reality behind the so-called pin-up, centre-stage, in the first pic, I liked that they were doing something generous with their new-found ‘celeb’ status but found nothing at all appealing about them individually because of their pumped up, macho-cop parading.

      • Skylark says:

        @Third Ginger – ditto to you with your ‘all too true’ and for agreeing so readily with QueenB’s offensive broadbrushing of ‘straight women’, as if we, as a collective, lose our objective and thinking minds in the face of a handsome face.

      • third ginger says:

        I was agreeing with the police brutality. However, given some of the remarks here, at least some of the women did go little overboard for the handsome faces. I am straight but my daughter is gay.

      • third ginger says:

        Also, Skylark, you did not respond the way some posters did. Before posters found out about the Nazi sympathizer, this thread was nothing but swoons and please handcuff me. Read some of the early comments. Many women were responding to a fantasy. Now that’s their business, but one even scolded those of us who pointed out the offending officer for spoiling her fun.

      • third ginger says:

        Finally, do think just maybe Queen B was being sarcastic and exaggerating for effect?

      • Mama says:

        Exactly… what about that felon a couple of years ago who was pretty hot but he was a felon. And women didn’t care. Women like to complain that men just go for the hot piece of ass but some show they aren’t any different. No cops for me. Ever.

    • Lolo86lf says:

      Oh come now, I am sure these particular cops are not bad cops, just look at their faces, they do not have a single sign of meanness or brutality in them. I love hot cops who are good cops.

      • Nicole says:

        Well clearly one is anti-Semetic so that’s false. And until “good” cops check their brothers in blue there are no good cops. There are tons of complicit cops and bad cops

      • third ginger says:

        One is definitely not good. Do some research.

      • Shelly says:

        Nicole, my son is a good cop. He works his ass off, is respectful to everyone and does his best to help anyone that needs it. He gets spit on from time to time, called every imaginable name, has been punched in the face, and was tackled by a guy that required him to have 30 stitches in his knee. He literally puts his life on the line for total strangers every time he heads to work, do you?
        By your estimation that there are no good cops then there are no good doctors because there have been doctors who molested patients. Doctors who have Murdered patients. Doctors who have committed gross malpractice and their colleagues said nothing to protect their hospital/friend/colleague.
        It is that kind of broad criticism of an entire group that I thought commenters here were against?

        Like V4Real said
        “All cops are not bad cops. Just like not all White people are racist, not all Black men are thugs. I thought readers on this site despised stereotypes.”

      • Honey says:

        Shelly, I really appreciate brave people like your son, who put his life on the line every day and doesn’t stop even when he’s unfairly treated by the people he’s out to protect. There are many more good cops than bad ones and it’s really sad that some don’t want to see it or admit it. Thank your son for being good and strong for us

      • BJ says:

        @Shelly Has your son ever reported a cop who he witnessed not following the rules or acting inappropriately,when it comes to mistreating citizens? Because as Nicole said when “good” cops ignore bad behavior they are condoning that behavior.Following the Blue Code of Silence when you witness a fellow cop doing wrong makes you almost as bad as the “bad cop”
        BTW I feel the same way about doctors,lawyers, etc.
        Evil flourishes when “good people” do nothing.

        Lastly your son chose to be a cop and he can choose another profession if he finds it so unpleasant.I guarantee the individuals who injured him went to jail.How many cops go to jail for injuring or killing unarmed citizens?

      • Nicole says:

        Thank you for ACTUALLY getting my point BJ.

      • Kitten says:

        Teachers get spit on and treated like dirt as well. So do people in the service industry, school bus drivers, etc. Difference is that they don’t get to carry guns to protect themselves.

        My BF is a paramedic and has tons of stories of belligerent patients verbally and physically abusing him but hey, guess what? He doesn’t GAF because he knows this is what he signed up for. He also doesn’t expect people to praise him for doing his damn job.

        So sick of people worshipping law enforcement and first responders, troops etc.
        There are so many people who are literally making a direct and positive, TANGIBLE impact on peoples’ lives yet never receive the hero worship and glorification that cops do.
        Not that they would even expect/want it but…..

      • V4Real says:

        Some people in the military might find their job unpleasant but they still do it. But should they all find another profession just because they find it unpleasant.

      • Honey says:

        BJ what if Shellys son hasn’t reported a cop misbehaving, not following the rules, or mistreating citizens, because maybe he hasn’t ever actually witnessed it?

        Like V4Real said, lots find their jobs unpleasant, but they still do it.
        Not everyone has a fun and enjoyable job that they’ve always dreamed of, but somebody has to do it

        Kitten I rarely hear about people worshiping law enforcement, but I see lots of people who don’t actually know them, labeling them all as bad and evil

      • Kitten says:

        @ Honey- You said you are WOC correct? Maybe you hear more criticism than I do, as a white chick. But yeah, I see the hero worship ALL the time.

        Police officers are tasked with upholding the law and are given the highest level of authority over American citizens. They hold a level of power that most of us do not. They should be held to the absolute HIGHEST standard in terms of moral authority and ethics. They should be BETTER than me or you or any other average American citizen. But too often they are put on a pedestal and too often they are not held accountable for their actions because of a broken system that closes ranks and protects their own instead of the American citizens.

        The expectations and standards for law enforcement in this country is far, FAR to low to the point where American society basically gives them carte blanche to abuse their authority. Between that and the militarization of our police force it makes for a very scary situation.

      • Megan says:

        I have a few family members who are cops. In their opinion, police forces tend to be “clean” or “dirty’ depending upon the leadership. The individual officers are a symptom of a much bigger problem. One family members has been a cop for 15 years and has only draw his gun once and that was to get a guy pointing a gun at his wife to drop it.

      • Shelly says:

        Honey- Thank you, I’m very proud of my son.

        V4Real-Great point. Garbage collectors may find their jobs unpleasant but it needs to be done. All jobs are going to have unpleasant aspects so if we all decided we didn’t want to do them then what?

        Nicole- No I got it, I just don’t agree with your generalization.

        BJ- My son chose to be an officer because he wanted to help people. He’s not the one sharing anything here, I am.
        He witnessed a car accident at 16 and he stopped to help the people and he decided then he wanted to do something to help and chose law enforcement. There are genuinely good people in the world and bias aside, my son is one of them. Yes, he has reported one of his colleagues. Someone he worked closely with was abusing his wife. My son responded to the call and when he found out it was a “brother” he didn’t hesitate to arrest him for DV. Was it tough on him? I’m sure it was but he knew what was right and he did it. My son was raised with a solid moral foundation and I’d like to believe he will always do the right thing.

        Kitten- my son doesn’t walk around with an S on trying to get people to worship him but you’ll have to excuse me if I do. Aren’t you proud of the job your Bf does? My son Isn’t complaining, he knew what the job was when he signed up, I was sharing examples of things he’s been subjected to.
        My husband was military for 20+ years and served in Iraq and Afghanistan and you’re damn right I worship him too.
        Never once have either of them demanded any kind of hero worship, and my husband won’t even discuss his time down range. Again, there are still good people who do good things JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE GOOD PEOPLE. Not everyone has an agenda.
        Its people like my son, my husband, my best friend who served that allow all of us yahoos to sit here and discuss what used to be fun, gossipy kinds of things but more and more is just a way for people to attack others regarding any opinion that differs from the majority.
        Yes, I know, don’t come to the site, got it. Personally I enjoy a lot of the spirited discussions, I enjoy reading differing opinions and I enjoy learning things I may not have known from some posters. Everything shouldn’t be a beat down of anyone’s opinions regardless.

        But, can we not agree there are problems, there are bad apples in EVERY kind of job and still appreciate the good people? Does every single cop have to be an evil gestapo type person? Isn’t it possible to have good cops try to do good things?

      • Kitten says:

        @Shelly-I wasn’t replying to you directly for a reason. I didn’t address your comment at all so I’m surprised you would infer that mine was a personal attack against you. It certainly wasn’t meant to be.

        Yes, of course you have every right to be proud of your son but I would assume you’re proud of him for being a good person, not simply because he dons a uniform every day. And that was my point: first responders are not inherently great people simply because of their profession–in fact too many of them are not. Too many hide behind their uniform or use their badge as a way to abuse their unchecked power.

        I’m very proud of my BF but it has nothing to do with the fact that he’s a paramedic. I’m proud of him because he has the biggest heart in the world. Truly. And I would be proud of him if he was a garbage man, accountant, teacher, or doctor..whatever. It just so happens that he chose a profession that utilizes his best qualities: his overwhelming compassion and empathy.

        I’m proud of him for being who he is, not because he’s a first responder.

        I appreciate the stories you shared about your son, Shelly, he sounds like a really great guy—but it doesn’t change how I feel about our law enforcement agencies.
        The system is broken and until we start having higher standards for our police officers, nothing will ever change.

        I’ve posted this before I think but this best summarizes why I have issue with the “few bad apples” theory of policing. Maybe if you have a minute you can take a look:

        https://medium.com/human-development-project/the-few-bad-apples-theory-of-police-reform-is-deadly-wrong-c41358530402

      • Shelly says:

        @Kitten- You’ll have to excuse me, but you specifically mentioned teachers being spit at and your bf having belligerent people so it wasn’t much of a leap for me.

        I am very proud of my son for a whole host of reasons. He IS a good guy. He took care of me at 15 when I had emergency surgery and his dad was deployed. Didn’t complain (to me at least!) he just helped me get up the stairs, cooked dinner and walked the dog. He has a compassion that is amazing to me and I beam when talking about him.
        He got me to volunteer at a food pantry with him because he wanted to do something for others. Now, I may be painting him as a saint, but I know he isn’t. Not even a little. Well, maybe a little… 😃 But these are all the good qualities of a good man trying to do a good job and things that make his mother proud.

        But, I am also proud of him because he Does wear a uniform. He gets up every day and does to work knowing he will be hated and judged no matter what he does because of his uniform. Still, he puts it on and walks out the door. He goes to work knowing he might face a suspect with a gun. Said suspect will not give two shits about what a great guy he is or how compassionate he is. He does that job and I don’t. You don’t. A lot of people don’t. It’s scary for me as a mother to think of some of the things he’s seen, what could happen to him solely because he wears a uniform so many people hate. Yet he does it and he has some really great, heartwarming stories that outweigh the bad. He does it because there are still people who appreciate that he is willing to put himself in harms way for others. He does it because he Does want to change the narrative, he wants to let people see him for him first, cop second, and recognize he does his job with honor as do so many others.

        I do totally agree with you our criminal justice system is broken. It’s broken across the board. But, how can we ever change any of that when it’s assumed Every cop is bad? Every cop is racist? Every cop abuses their authority? “There are no good cops”? Ok, so how do we fix it? Fire them all? Have no cops at all?

        How does the narrative change if people are not willing to accept the good cops who are trying to make a difference? How do we fix a system when any progress, any good news, isn’t enough? How do we move the needle when every cop is deemed bad regardless of their own actions?

        I refuse to believe all cops are bad, racist, evil because I know too many who are not and my son just happens to be my favorite.

      • BJ says:

        @Shelly Awesome!! I am glad your son did the right thing.I know there is a lot of pressure on cops to turn a blind eye when they witness cops behaving badly.

    • Tulsi 2020 says:

      ‘So when police brutality is a thing of the past maybe I can enjoy this.
      Until then…pass’

      The calendar will out of date by then and Trump is a white supremacist.#NaziBucketChallenge

    • Millenial says:

      We can agree that police brutality is awful and needs to be addressed and still enjoy the way these men look in uniform.

      As the internet meme says, “Shhhh… just let people enjoy things.”

    • Honey says:

      Nicole, that’s not fair to blame every cop for the bad that some of them have done. If you’re in need of help, would you tell them to go away because of something not all of them are guilty of? If so, I hope you’re never in desperate need of help like many of us have been. A white cop was brave and nice enough to save my black families lives, and treated us with no disrespect. I’ll be grateful forever

      • Amanduh says:

        Right??!!! Such a broad brush with which to paint an entire group?!

      • Miss Kittles says:

        Thanks for sharing Honey! That’s great to hear!

      • Nicole says:

        Personally I would not call the cops because I don’t trust them. That’s from personal experience.
        There are not enough good cops checking the system. That’s a fact. And the system is built on racism. Also a fact.
        So no I can’t enjoy a man in a uniform because it’s triggering to me.

      • Honey says:

        That’s your choice Nicole. You might change your mind if you’re in danger and have to push aside what you’re ignorantly holding against an entire group of people

      • Nicole says:

        Um you assume I haven’t been in that position. I have and it didn’t end well…for me. So no I wont make that mistake again. I’m not the only one that feels that way. There are entire neighborhoods here that don’t trust local cops for a reason

      • Megan says:

        I am a white woman and, aside from my family members who are cops, I am terrified of the police. I can’t begin to imagine what black and brown people feel.

      • Dhavynia says:

        @Honey
        Thank you for the comment, my sister is a PO and so is my ex. They are both working Alpha/Bravo since last week because of Irma so a little bit of humor sometimes goes a long way.
        My experience with POs is that they cheat a lot but that doesn’t mean I’ll knock down the idea of a relationship with another one because that would be stereotype an entire profession. Aside the cheating, I still think my ex a good officer and a great father
        I also have a brother who is a teacher and he is always getting praised by his students and I’ve seen some of his former students visit him and telling him what an inspiration he was. Teachers are awesome too

    • V4Real says:

      All cops are not bad cops. Just like not all White people are racist, not all Black men are thugs. I thought readers on this site despise stereotypes.

      • Babs says:

        I despise stereotypes. And cops.
        Your example doesn’t work. Being a cop is a choice. Protecting bad colleagues is also a choice. Posing happily with antisémites is also a choice, etc.

      • Honey says:

        +100 I despise stereotypes, and things won’t get any better if they’re still used for everything. Not fair to label

      • V4Real says:

        @Baps Being a racist is also a choice, being a thug is a choice and being a person who chooses to stereotype others is also a choice. Yep, I’m pretty sure my example holds up just fine.

        And understand I’m not defending this guy, I despise bad cops just like I despise racist. I’m defending how people can say they despise people who stereotype but yet turn around and do the same thing

      • Babs says:

        No. “cop” is not like “black” or “white”. “cop” actually tells something about a you as a Person, what you like, what you stand for and what you never ever stand against i.e. police brutality.

      • V4Real says:

        Baps you just keep proving my point so thanks for the assist. Being a racist actually tells something about you as a person as well, and what you like and don’t like and what you stand for and what you never stand against. Are you for real right now or are you just trolling?

      • Megan says:

        Cops have power and weapons. When a cop stops you, you are not in an equal position. Policing requires enormous trust from a community and when bad cops violate that trust, it paints every cop as a potential bad cop. Sorry, but my inclination is to err on the side of caution and stay the hell away from cops.

    • Sadezilla says:

      I thought the comment highlighted in the article (I know it’s not from Corey, it’s just some lady on the internet) was pretty insensitive:
      “So, looks like my next vacation will be spent in Gainesville rolling through stop signs and driving with a tail light out every evening until I’ve been pulled over by the entire night shift. It’s gonna get expensive, and my insurance premiums will go through the roof from all those tickets”

      Many people of color are disproportionately targeting for minor offenses like these, and being pulled over is not a harmless nonevent for them. I wouldn’t be posting something like that, but that’s just me.

      No, not all police officers are bad cops, and that’s not what Nicole said. I wouldn’t want to brush aside the legitimate fears of people of color in dealing with the police.

      • Nicole says:

        I just don’t get how people DONT get that communities of color are often distrustful or triggered by cops. I can’t ogle a cop in uniform without thinking of yet everything else. And that comment is peak privilege.
        So thanks for also getting my point

      • Megan says:

        Way back in the day I worked for a community development corporation in the Anacostia neighborhood in DC. Something as simple as waiting for a walk sign to cross the street could get you harassed for loitering. One time at an evening residents meeting we heard gun shots and called the police. I am not lying when I say they sent in the f*cking national guard. Within 20 minutes the streets were lined with military vehicles, flood lights, and men with AK-47s. We never called the cops again.

      Ugh I saw that. It’s like we can’t have anything nice! The jokes he posted (the two I saw on an article at least) were gross. I saw people saying that they were immature but I worked in a middle school and am certain most of the teenagers knew better than to make jokes like that.

        Exactly what I was going to say, we can’t have one nice charming feel-good story without there being a seedy underbelly! I guess these insidious evil thoughts ad dark forces have been out there all over the place, but mostly hidden to us, and are just starting to be revealed now. Shudder.

    • M says:

      When writing these things please get your facts straight! It’s Officer Hamill (the one in the middle) that is under investigation for his anti-semitic Facebook posts.

    • Kitten says:

      Not all that surprised honestly.

      I’m not attracted to cops–never have been–but I’ve been donating to help Irma victims and will skip the cop calendar.

    Hello!

  4. detritus says:

    Hot Dude Friday! And they are hot AND doing good. Swoon.

    My official top three. Officer Hatcher for the win, that man’s faces is gorgeous and his lil smile mmm. Runner up is The Hair with the bad sports team taste, and then Pornstache. Or maybe pornstache and then The Hair? I can’t decide.

    If any of them are racist or otherwise dickbags they get removed and replaced with the puppy.

    I’ll take glorious hair guy and Mr Not February please….

  7. mellie says:

    This FB page is absolutely hilarious, I don’t know who is in charge of the posting, but the comments were funny. Junior High comedy at its best, which, of course, never gets old. :)

  8. LP says:

    Uh, nothing on the anti semitism?

  9. DurbanGirl says:

    Hello Officer Hatcher *fanning myself*

  10. Jess says:

    Good god, I never seen so many good looking cops. I can’t stop staring, lol.

  11. SM says:

    This is hilarious! Truly something to keep the believe in America at this difficult time. The moment when everyone can put aside their differences and problems for just a moment and drool over some hot guys who are the representation of a real life heroes of different rases and backgrounds.

  12. Honey says:

    Love it! Hotties from the town I was born and raised in and who helped us when we needed them

  13. Doodle says:

    Police brutality is a thing. So are serial killers and pedophiles that need law enforcement to put a stop to them. There are good people and bad people in every element of society.

    All these guys are hot, and I’m not even into cops.

    • Kcat says:

      Thank you. Police brutality sucks, particularly because the police aren’t the ones we look to to protect us. However, painting all cops with the evil brush is ignorant. I have several cops in my family, including some who work in the worst areas of Chicago. They’re heroes. The crap they see and live with is beyond your imagination.

      For those who are so reactionary that they can’t even enjoy a lighthearted post about cops I hope you call the pc police the next time you’re the victim of a crime.

      • QueenB says:

        What if its the cops who commit the crime? Does the “pc police” help me then?

      • third ginger says:

        What about the Jews Officer Hamill joked about killing? He is under investigation. Sometimes PC is just common decency.

      • magnoliarose says:

        kcat On one point I do agree. Sure some cops do their jobs, but you lost me when you said he works in Chicago’s worst areas. Chicago is full of dirty cops, and they work in the “worst” (code word BLACK or LATINO) neighborhoods. He may be a good person but there is a problem in that department, and until cops stand up and clean out the psycho bigots they can’t be heroes.

  14. Miss Kittles says:

    Get the cuffs out officers!! But don’t arrest me …. 😉

  15. i don't know her says:

    this sounds like the plot to a lifetime movie.
    a displaced single mother (w/ a son OF COURSE….no fraternal twins) who just happens to be an amateur photographer will end up shooting this.
    she then falls for……

    please feel free to continue this plot.
    its GOLD I tell you!

  16. Ninks says:

    Why can’t he just have nice things??????

    • third ginger says:

      Because some people are virulent anti-semites. I don’t exactly scour the internet, and I found this information about Officer Hamill and his “jokes” about killing Jews easily.

      • Erinn says:

        To be fair though – that wasn’t always widely available information. I mean, THIS thread was made before Corey knew about that investigation.

      • third ginger says:

        No blame for Corey. I found out about it yesterday afternoon. Puppies are perfect!!

  17. Eric says:

    Wasted post.

    Period

  18. Babs says:

    Yeah, no. Nope

  19. M. says:

    I commented and shared the link of his Facebook posts…not sure why the moderator didn’t post it.

  20. FHMom says:

    My first thought was that these guys probably have big enough egos as it is. But, if it raises money for charity and outs an anti-Semite, then it’s a good thing.

    ETA
    I just read that cops comments, and they are vile. He has to get fired NOW.

  21. Mich says:

    OMG. After reading comments I did a quick search on what the cop posted. From the Gainesville Sun:

    One screen shot is of an April 2013 post, in which Hamill writes: “Who knew that reading jewish jokes before I go to bed would not only make me feel better about myself but also help me to sleep better as well. Here is one for everybody, “What’s the difference between boy scouts and jews?” Anybody know? Well it is because “Boy scouts come back from their camps.”

    Sickening. This guy does not deserve an ounce of celebration. His ‘beauty’ really is only skin deep.

    The officer pretending that he karate chopped the fallen tree is adorable though!

    • Kitten says:

      Oh shit don’t ruin the fantasy, Mich!

      F*cking disgusting and appalling. Oh, and NOT funny. Really the unfunniest “joke” I’ve heard in quite some time…

      • third ginger says:

        That’s the problem, isn’t it? Easy to swoon over a picture, not knowing about the actual person.

      • Mich says:

        IKR? Normally I wouldn’t post something like that but all the mentions of him being anti-Semitic weren’t bringing home just how disgusting his comments were.

      • Skylark says:

        His other comment was even more loathsome than the one you posted:

        “so I find it funny that people will talk about how our government needs to do something about our economy and in reality it’s YOU who needs to stop taking advantage of our system and get a life and do something with your life. Gotta love reality when it hits you in the face. Stupid people annoy me. Put them in an oven and deal with them the Hitler way. Haha.”

        I guess we can take some small satisfaction from the fact that this will have wiped the preening smile off his disgusting bigoted and, no doubt, racist face and that he’s unlikely to be doing much ‘haha’ing in the immediate future.

      • Kitten says:

        @ Skylark-DAMN Nazi cop is Nazi huh?

      • Skylark says:

        Pretty much, Kitten.

      • FHMom says:

        Definitely a Nazi. It’s good that everyone knows.

    • Talie says:

      So scary that people with boundless authority over other humans have views like this…yikes!

  22. KBeth says:

    Right, we can’t enjoy this because ALL cops are racist brutes. Stupid.

  23. Jayna says:

    I just want my electric back on. In Florida that’s all I’m asking for. It’s a heat wave down here. I don’t believe them anymore, that it will be by Sunday.

    • nicegirl says:

      oh Jayna I am praying it happens

    • Kitten says:

      Oh my god you poor thing.

      Hope you get it back soon, Jayna.

    • Donna says:

      Jayna, I really hope you get your power back soon. We lost ours Sunday night and finally got it back Wednesday afternoon. A tree had landed on the power lines. It’s been horrible for so many of us here. Wishing you all the best.

    • Amelie says:

      Hope you get it back soon! We had no power for 2 weeks after Hurricane Sandy in NY state. It was the most frustrating thing because most of my hometown got power back before our section did. It was also November and it was cold so that meant no heat etc. We stayed at nearby relatives who got power back before we did. It is really awful and I really do hope the lights turn back on for you.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I am sorry for you Jayna. I hope today is the day! *fingers crossed*

  24. Wowza says:

    Most of the cops I have known are authoritarian, a bit full of themselves, and stuck in a culture of macho-ness.

    They cops I know are all decent guys but seeing photos like this doesn’t make me swoon because I’m not into that worldview. This is just my experience growing up in a small conservative town, but the kids who grew up to be cops were like hyper-normal kids who liked to fall in line and didn’t challenge the status quo. Where’s the fun in that?

    There are also people in this world that have a sort of fetish for hero-worshipping soldiers and cops, and these posts strike me as these cops preening for that base, which is just kind of gross.

  25. jferber says:

    Okay, just ship them to New York. We need a few good men here. Oh, and fire Hamill. No place for anti-Semitism anywhere.

  26. manda says:

    It’s been a few years, but I used to work with my county’s K-9 division, and OMG, all of those men were SOOOO good looking. Like whoa. Like, super whoa. Not sure if they are all still there, but eye candy for sure :)

    • Snowflake says:

      What county is that? Hehe

    • Oh-Dear says:

      my best friend’s dad was part of the K-9 unit where we lived. I used to sleep over at their place quite a bit in grades 11 and 12 and university, so I was present for quite a few of their parties (they put frat boys to shame). I think a certain personality is drawn to that kind of work. They were arrogant, fun-loving, hard-partying cheaters who loved the thrill of the work, helping people and being idolized in uniform. They were both good people and complete as5es.

      • Jess says:

        +1000 Yep!! I had the misfortune of dating a hot K9 officer. He was even on a tv show about K9 cops on Animal Planet. I’ll never forget what he told me when he admitted some random woman was having his child…I asked him if they were dating and he said “Uh…loosely”. So you were just f*cking. He was a lying, cheating alpha male who was also a combat veteran and regularly did things that were at best ethically dubious but more like illegal (like carrying his service weapon off duty in bars that prohibited firearms while he was drinking, driving under the influence, using his badge to get in places for free, etc). So yeah….I’ll never make the mistake of getting all hot and bothered for another hot cop again.

  27. *someone does a kind act

    *ugh. Why didn’t you do this and this. What about this and that!?

    Eye roll. There’s always some miserable somebody that has to ruin it for everyone else.

    Debbie Downers 🙄

  28. Electric Tuba says:

    Which one was the hot one? Did one of these guys beat him up and take their place?

  29. adastraperaspera says:

    Sandra Bland’s traffic stop is all I can think of when I hear about cops stopping people. Say Her Name. We have an emergency-level problem in this country, where citizens are being killed at traffic stops because of the color of their skin. Where undocumented folks are being hunted down by ICE officers who behave like they have watched one too many episodes of COPS. Where the cop who choked Eric Garner to death on video was not even indicted for murder! It’s so sad to me that people want to jump on a picture of a good looking man (because let’s face it, women are a miniscule percentage of police forces nationwide due to rampant sexism in the field) and use his good looks to romanticize the police. The Fraternal Order of Police endorsed Trump, for god’s sake, and he called a few weeks ago for them to “rough up” suspects! Cops are acting like the U.S. is their occupied territory, and we citizens are the enemy. It’s gone too far. The police do not deserve this kind of adulation until things change for the better. Not to mention that Ellen DeGeneres can’t even have her research people google a racist jerk before helping him grab 15 minutes of fame–which will no doubt thrill the Breitbart thugs as they have another fundraising for him when he gets fired. I guess being handsome makes all of this ok??

    • Kitten says:

      “Sandra Bland’s traffic stop is all I can think of when I hear about cops stopping people.”

      This. How can anybody watch a video of Richard Ramirez, Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and on and on and still think cops are heroes?

      And I don’t understand why every time we talk about the corrupt American law enforcement agencies, we have to qualify with “there are good cops, too!” Good cops? Sure, but even so-called good cops uphold and participate in a racist institution.

    • adastraperaspera says:

      Stockley found not guilty today. He’s on tape saying during the car chase that he wanted to kill the victim. It wasn’t his decision to take a life, even if the guy had been dealing drugs. Cops are not judges or executioners! I hope no one will be injured in the protests. People are hurting, and they are justifiably angry.

      Lighten up, Francis. Yeesh.

    You can say I support racist law enforcement but
    1/ Officer Bylynn Hatcher, helloooo
    2/ the dog is innocent

  31. Snowflake says:

    I guess I’m weird, none of them do much for me. I don’t think they’re that good looking. Hatcher would be the closest, he’s got nice muscles

  32. Hazel says:

    Thank you for this! It starts my day with a laugh! And, puppies!

  33. Skylark says:

    Hope none of those adorable little doggies have dodgy social media profiles… you know, filled with ‘Cats are rubbish’ or ‘I deliberately tripped my owner and he banged his head hahaha’ sort of thing.

    Cos if they have, well… ;)

  34. Olive says:

    update 1: nazism
    update 2: puppies!!!

  35. This is the worst says:

    Apparently one of the officers wrote a facebook post PUBLICLY that basically advocated for putting poor people “in ovens like Hitler did.” It’s on the Shawn King page.

    Why!!! I wanted to just like the cute cops. Sigh.

    • Skylark says:

      I posted it above but my pleasure to post it again just so it’s not being missed:

      “so I find it funny that people will talk about how our government needs to do something about our economy and in reality it’s YOU who needs to stop taking advantage of our system and get a life and do something with your life. Gotta love reality when it hits you in the face. Stupid people annoy me. Put them in an oven and deal with them the Hitler way. Haha.”

      Haha indeed.

      If “Put them in an oven and deal with them the Hitler way. Haha” turns out to be not the end of Hamill’s police and any other career, then we all really are fucked.
