Helicopter Porn

Remember last week we learned that that goofball deputy from San Diego County Sheriff’s Department had flipped out at that small Democratic fundraiser hosted at a home in the suburbs, spraying pepper spray into people’s eyes, throwing people to the ground and calling in a fleet of police cars, a canine unit and even a police helicopter. And we got to thinking, are these guys in the habit of flipping out like this? Sending in the helicopter at a moment’s notice, like an underutilized toy?

That was a bit hard to figure out. But we did find out that the Department’s website has a special section devoted to para-militaryish photos of its helicopter force, with even some beef-cakish photos of the pilots with assault rifles … I guess ready for some local community policing. Shocking these guys would fly off the handle. Take a look.
