Tennessee Police Officer Fired After Using Gun And Pepper Spray Against Squirrel In Store

• Jonathan Turley
Putnam was in the store in Mountain City when employees spotted the squirrel. Putnam first responded by shooting at the squirrel and then used his pepper spray. Even if one were to use lethal force on a squirrel, it is curious why you would use the gun before the pepper spray.

In the heat of the moment, you can never tell what a cop will do. Probably he feared for his life. Then, after he realized that living life looking so foolish in the eyes of everyone else wasn't desirable, he tried to make the gun part go away by using the pepper spray.
