Heroes Great And Small

"ATHENS, Ga. –  A Georgia man who saved a dog from a hot Mustang has been arrested for smashing a window to free the animal.

Multiple news outlets report that Michael Hammons of Athens was charged with criminal trespassing after freeing a small Pomeranian mix in distress from a hot car outside a store. Witnesses say that while a group of shoppers waited for police to arrive to free the dog, the Army veteran smashed the window.

Deputies say the car's owner insisted Hammons be arrested. Deputies did not identify the woman. She was cited for leaving the dog in the hot car."

Fucking people. Leave your dog is a locked car in Georgia in the summertime? They should put that woman in a locked car in the sun for an hour or so with no way out, see how she likes it. And then understand that dogs don't sweat ... that means they have no way to cool off except panting.

Kudos to Michael Hammons for stepping forward. He should ask for a jury trial. One decent dog owner on the jury would be more than enough for a nullification acquittal.
