Cops in Michigan protect ó and serve doughnuts

CLARE, Mich. Ė "Cops & Doughnuts" is more than a punchline. It's now a bakery in Michigan ó owned by nine full-time employees of the Clare Police Department.
The newly renamed bakery opened Wednesday, offering doughnuts, cookies, muffins, brownies and bread. It also has mugs and T-shirts bearing the "Cops & Doughnuts, 100 Percent Cop-Owned" logo, and phrases including "You Have the Right to Remain Glazed" and "Handcuffs and Cream Puffs."
Officer Al White says the officers were concerned when the Clare City Bakery's owners decided to throw in the towel. The 113-year-old bakery would have become the sixth empty storefront in Clare's three-block downtown.
The officers were on hand for the grand reopening but have hired a manager and will employ local students as staff.

I hope they make plenty of dough......SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

So they are serving and protecting and serving donuts. It is cool that they steped up and went that extra mile to better their community. It will also be a great opertunity for the local students that they employ and could lead to some going in to law enforcement not to mention keeping them out of trouble.

Protecting the citizens.... and helping the economy. That is also a funny venture as well.... I can hear the jokes now.The Police Dog Poem
My eyes are your eyes, to watch and protect you and yours.
My ears are your ears, to hear and detect evil minds in the dark.
My nose is your nose, to scent the invader of your domain.
And so you may live, my life is also yours.
