What do you say about a cartoon about homicidal maniac cops in hell? The fact Tacoma Police Chief David Brame and Pierce County Sheriff's Deputy Allen Myron both committed bloody murder in the City of Gig Harbor is perhaps an odd coincidence. There are 4 things that helped shape this cartoon: 
  1. reading an unrelated Tacoma lady's tweet about a cop telling the lady to move to Gig Harbor after her house was broken into. 
  2. Reading Officer Myron's son's facebook comments as reported in the TNT regarding his father's horrible deeds (e.g. I love you dad, I wish I was half the man you were when I grow up! I will see you again in heaven blah blah.)
  3. Watching my comment on the TNT article get flagged and deleted. (e.g. I wrote something like "Of all the places this kid's dad is right now I doubt heaven is one of them").
  4. Reading a crazy person's comments on a TNT article about needing a legal exception for use of lethal self-defense against a berserk policeman (can't find it now because TNT search feature sucks).

RR, you're a brilliant artist, but this is in poor taste.

Yeah lady, when it comes to issues stemming from domestic violence bred of narcissistic chauvinism it makes so much more sense to just look the other way once the perpetrator has killed himself, right? I mean, no sense adding insult to injury.

He's already dead, let's just forget the whole mess happened. Anyway, the perpetrators have repented with a bullet. It's the good Christian thing to do to forgive, forget and move on.

I'm gonna remember that. If I ever screw something up in my life REALLY bad on a public scale I'll just shoot myself, then it will be in bad taste for people to call me out on my bull sh*t.

. . .I dunno, seems like the easy way out to me. . .

Thank R.R. for not giving in to superficial social rectitudes and calling out all of the clowns (both dead and alive) on their b.s.

I'm OK with your drawing RR.

Having read cartoons my whole life I would have to say that it reminded me of the Family Circus. That cartoon almost always featured the ghosts of some long dead relatives watching the comings and goings of the living. Your somewhere in GH has a FC creepiness about it.

Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined drawing a comparison to this comic and Family Circus, color me impressed.

Cops live in Gig Harbor because of the low crime rate there when compared to other places in Pierce County.

yes... family circus comparison is a happy surprise.

Imagine how things could have been different had only this happened sooner...
