Yesterday I went to a local Comic Book Store here in Houston, Texas. I was looking for the hard to find 'Death Row Marv' figure that recently made the news across the nation. After I asked to see the figure (it was kept behind the counter) and dicided that the price was right, the sales person asked me if I was a policeman. I told him I was not and asked why. He told me that the Death Row Marv figure is very popular with the Houston Police Department. The officers like to have them on their desks and in their squad cars - scary huh?

Scary? How do you figure? You bought the doll, didn't you? Or are you protected by your sense of irony?

Scary? No. Last time I checked, the Houston Police Department is not responsible for convicting or sentencing criminals.

I don't care what toys cops put on their dashboards, as long as it doesn't involve me, plungers, or 41 shots.
