Is Leering At Women Joggers Only Duty Of Houston Horse Patrol Cops In Memorial Park?

Do Houston horse patrol officers in Memorial Park have any other duty but to leer at women joggers as they run on the Memorial Park jogging loop? 

This is a very insulting question. Of course these officers have other responsibilities.

For example, after the women jog by, it is the duty of these policemen to cast knowing glances at each other, and, if duty truly calls, they must also raise their eyebrows and make some sort of comment to a fellow horse patrol officer.

These are very busy police officers and I am sorry to suggest that they might have but one duty. It is in fact quite clear that they have as many as 3 or 4 responsibilities.

  1. There are good ones and bad ones in every occupation and every walk of life. It’s just good ole human nature. Too bad they make the others look bad

  4. They also have to chase the homeless off sleeping on the benches i am sure. Overall cops are good and serve a great purpose its just unfortunate more of the law officers are not in pooor neighborhoods helping and serving the public as they should. the enviroment of a police officer is brutal and the fact that they see the worse humanity has to offer i think makes them a little jaded. it would be nice to see them go after the corporate criminals more as well. We should have a special election and remove all parking meters so they can free up all the officers to fight real crime instead of hawking parkers that are at work or trying to buy groceries for their families.

  5. Oh i wanted to mention too that the Cincinnati horse patrol is allowed to let the horses shit in the streets and then leave it for the tires of the citizens to clean up. I think dog owners should have a protest where they all bring their dogs to shit at city hall and let them know that these officers that cant walk a beat should at least be on mountain bikes or have to get off the fking horse and clean the shit up when the horse goes. its only fair and the law under the city code of animal waste.

  6. Mounted patrol cops in Cincinnati and in Houston are a boondoggle. They are PR stunts. I know just what you are talking about with the Cincinnati horses crapping in the street. It always made me grumpy. I’m pretty sure that a proposal was made for baggies attached to the horses but the cops were against it.
