Sledgehammer-Wielding Man Shot By Police

sledgehammer I bet a lot of people can relate to this poor guy. The crappy economy really has a lot of people down and out and I bet many people would like to take a sledghammer and destroy a few things to vent.

Via Mercury News:

San Diego police have shot and wounded a man they say appeared distraught over financial problems and threw a sledgehammer at officers.

A man in his 40s was shot in the chest and leg on Sunday at his home in the Encanto area but Capt. Jim Collins says his wounds aren’t life-threatening. His name wasn’t released.

Collins says the man’s wife reported that he’d had trouble sleeping and woke her up Sunday morning to say the couple and their two young children were losing everything.

Collins says the man got a sledgehammer smashed the windows of a tow truck and two other cars in the driveway.

Collins says the man also had several knives. He says arriving officers confronted the man and fired when he threw the hammer and a knife at them.

Surfing Dogs are Always Awesome

These dogs are freaking sweet! If I had a dog, I would totally teach it to do this. So rad!

Surfing USA for dogs hit Imperial Beach again in San Diego over the weekend. Many of the dogs we introduced to readers in this surfing story attended the 5th annual Loews Coronado Bay Surf Dog competition Saturday.

A screening of the Marmaduke movie followed. More than hundred guests and their dogs came to the screening, including many who competed in the competition earlier in the day.

Among them was George the Great Dane , the 200-pound dog who played Marmaduke in the film, and some of the winners of the Paw Print Post contest.

Ricochet and Kalani (as seen in the video) won the tandem competition. These litter mates are stars in the surf. Ric recovered from an injury just in time to partake in the event that was a charity event for the San Diego Police department canine unit.
