Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is the Gatineau, Quebec, Canada Police Department. They get the award for the following-

A rural Gatineau, Que., family is angry at police who raided their home armed with loaded guns looking for a marijuana grow-op, which turned out to only be a skunk that lived on their property.

Auto mechanic Oliver MacQuat was home alone just before 8 p.m. Thursday when he saw flashing lights outside.

He thought a small water-bottling plant next door was being robbed, but then he heard a knock at his door.

The father of two was met by Gatineau officers who declared they had a warrant to search his home and arrest him.

"I thought I was going to have a heart attack," said MacQuat, who was handcuffed and seated on a stool while officers searched his home.

"That scared the living daylights out of me. They were very respectful, but it's very humiliating to be wearing handcuffs and to have people going through your house."

He was told the skunk smell — which is noticeable when driving by — was also similar to that of a grow-op.
I think police need more than a bad odor for proof of a crime or are police just allowed to overreact without cause on a whim? 20 cars showed up MacQuat family home.

No question about it. The Gatineau, Quebec, Canada Police Department is the winner of a stinky Knucklehead of the Day award.
