Watch Fort Lauderdale Cops Direct Random Woman to Clean Up Horsesh*t

You missed a spot.
A lot of wild antics have inundated Fort Lauderdale beach this summer. First, Dirty Blondes. Then, the Fort Lauderdale police arrested the slackline guy six times and threw him in jail five times.

And now this.

A video has surfaced showing what appears to be a pair of Fort Lauderdale cops directing a random woman on the street to clean up their horseshit. (Our taxpayer dollars hard at work.)

Benjamin Prows, a 30-year-old slackliner who once juggled on the beach before his repeated clashes with local police, remembers that day vividly. "There I was, just a couple of weeks after Memorial Day, hanging out on the beach, and I saw her just cleaning it up. And I was totally weirded out that they were making her clean it up."

He says a crowd gathered, as one of the officers pointed down at the woman below, cleaning up his horse's feces.

"People were looking at it and trying to figure out why he wouldn't come down and help" her clean up the shit, Prows said. "He pointed his finger and told her to get every last bit."

And she did. After several minutes of scooping the manure into a baggie, the woman, clad in flip-flops and a tank top, disposed of the shit.

New Times contacted the Fort Lauderdale Police Department late last week and asked whether this sort of thing is standard protocol for cops astride horse, and we haven't gotten a response.

well the mounted patrol does have plastic bags available as i myself witnessed an officer use it himself BUT this woman seems to be 'volunteering"

as with all things on the beach ALCOHOL plays a significant part in many if not most oddities and i don't think this will be an exception to that rule

BTW manure is a very good garden fertilizer and very eco-friendly - i know - i live in DAVIE

I would have refused.  Arrest me.  Let's see what the courts have to say about it.  Compelling a citizen to do work against their will under the threat of punishment and without compensation is slavery and a total violation of a citizen's civil rights.

Actually if it's some sort of court punishment I say she got off light and easy.

Maybe that is FLPD Chief Frank Adderly's wife doing community service.

This is a fucking disgrace. Can we get some adults on the FTL police force, or no?
