We dont necessarily hate cops. Last week, a nice policeman helped us chase a crackhead down Biscayne Boulevard after an incident involving some expensive headphones, a vintage Walkman, and a butter knife. (Hey, theyre sharper than they look.) But as for the cop who gave us that ticket for lewd and lascivious behavior, public intox, and disturbing the peace cmon, havent you ever gotten locked out of your house, drunk and naked, at 3 in the morning? We really wouldnt mind seeing that fool knocked to the pavement. Of course, were too smart to actually assault an officer. Luckily, though, theres Heroes in Action, a cops-versus-firefighters boxing event benefiting the Hollywood Police Athletic League. At last years showdown, the firefighters lost all but one bout. Heres hoping theyve been training hard so they can beat them blue boys several shades of black. Find the ring at Hard Rock Live this Friday.
