Epic Carnival | Where Sports and Pop Culture Collide: TONY STEWART: PATRON SAINT TO POLICE DOGS


by Jarrett Carter, Stet Sports Blog

Tony Stewart is donating bulletproof vests to police dogs in five states.

(Insert Michael Vick joke here)

Now to be clear, it wasn't like Stewart woke up and thought to himself, "Damn, a whole lotta police dogs are getting killed out here. Let me do something about it." A formal request was made to his foundation, and now, 30 dogs can patrol the streets with a renewed sense of safety and security.

Cause' you know, most criminals are prone to go after the dog when they are surrounded by 19 cop cars.

Seriously, I don't have a problem with this kind of donation. Police dogs are a valuable part of domestic paramilitary operations. It's just the weirdness of it. Buying armor for battalions over in Iraq? That would be a good one.

Rescuing abused dogs, very cute.

Police dogs are kind of nasty. Not that they don't get shot at, but they might just be better than humans in handling their biz. Humans just don't hold that kind of fear over other humans, you know?
