Taking a Bite Out of Crime

mcgruffI was please to read yesterday that the Metro bus driver that struck McGruff the Crime Dog on February 28 has been fired. While I understand how easy it is to forget that someone is in a costume when it looks like a huge stuffed animal, but claiming that you were just playing and thought it would be funny is no excuse. When you factor in that an active police officer is usually the person inside McGruff, its just plain stupid.

For those that may not have heard about this yet, McGruff was at the intersection of 14th Street and Spring Road when Shawn Brim – the Metro bus driver – got off his bus, punched McGruff, and drove off while kids screamed and McGruff reeled. Mr. Brim was pulled over 3 blocks later and charged with the crime.
