Boner Candidate #1: THIS KIND OF CRAP IS NOT HELPFUL

SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — Active duty police officer Lee Warnken says he received a death threat in the mail. It’s a painting of a pig’s head with a police officer cap on and a gun shooting it in the head. Warnken says his 17-year old-daughter discovered the painting in their mailbox last Sunday. “I can’t say I was angry; I can’t say I was hurt; I was more upset because it was her that found it, and it’s directed at me,” Warnken said. Warnken has been in law enforcement since 1982. He’s served as a deputy with the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office, a patrol officer with the Unified Police Department, and now as an officer with Veterans Affairs in Salt Lake. He says George Floyd should not have died the way he did, and calls his death tragic, but he looks at a picture like what he received and thinks there’s more work to be done to change perceptions on both sides of this national argument. “For too long, it seems like it’s ‘us vs. them,’ and it can’t be. We are a society, we are a community that must rely on each other,” Warnken said.

Boner Candidate #2: NO SLAVERY DOWN UNDER MATE

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Australian officials warned Black Lives Matter supporters they could be arrested if they breach coronavirus restrictions to take part in public protests, as debate erupted over the country’s own indigenous history. Prime Minister Scott Morrison drew strong criticism on Thursday after he said “there was no slavery in Australia” during a discussion of the early days of British settlement, which he acknowledged was “pretty brutal.” Historians, Aboriginal activists and some lawmakers expressed shock and dismay at the comments. “Slavery of indigenous, men, women and children is well documented,” said Sharman Stone, a former federal lawmaker and now politics professor at Monash University. “Slaves worked in pearling, fishing, the pastoral industries and as domestic labour.” The Black Lives Matter movement has refocused attention in Australia on the mistreatment of indigenous Australians, including Aboriginal deaths in custody.

Boner Candidate #3: WE’LL REALLY MISS THIS GUY

The NASCAR driver who is allegedly quitting at the end of the 2020 season over NASCAR’s Confederate flag ban has completed as many laps in a NASCAR race in 2020 as you have. Not long after NASCAR announced that it would be banning fans from displaying the Confederate flag at tracks on Wednesday, a post from Ray Ciccarelli’s Facebook account said the Truck Series driver wouldn’t run any races after the end of the 2020 season and that his team’s equipment was for sale. “Well it’s been a fun ride and dream come true but if that is the direction NASCAR is headed we will not participate after the 2020 season is over,” the post said. “I don’t believe in kneeling during anthem nor taken [sic] ppl right to fly what ever flag they love. I could care less about the Confederate Flag but there are ppl that do and it doesn’t make them a racist all you are doing is f—— one group to cater to another and I ain’t spend the money we are to participate in any political BS!! So everything is for SALE!! Sarah Ciccarelli.”

ROUND TWO

Boner Candidate #1: GIVE A GUY A FECES SANDWHICH? NO PROBLEM.

A San Antonio bike cop canned over 2016 allegations that he tried to give a homeless man a sandwich filled with dog feces has won an appeal of his dismissal, according to the Associated Press. However, SAPD officer Matthew Luckhurst remains off the beat after a suspension for a separate poop prank. That one involved taking a un-flushed dump in the women’s locker room and smearing a brown substance over the toilet seat after a female officer asked that the restroom be kept clean. This month, an arbitrator sided with Luckhurst in his appeal of the sandwich incident, saying administrators serve him punishment within the required 180-day period. It’s unclear where the second incident is in the appeals process. At issue in the arbitration was the varying dates witnesses gave about when the event took place, according to the AP. Some said Luckhurst served up the shit sandwich on May 6, 2016, while others provided varying dates or said he couldn’t have been on patrol then since he’d been hurt in a martial arts class.

Boner Candidate #2: WHO SAYS NO ONE READS NEWSPAPERS ANYMORE

The publisher of a family-owned Missouri newspaper has resigned after publishing a racist syndicated cartoon depicting a black man stealing a white woman’s purse while hailing funding cuts to police. Bill Miller Sr. on Thursday said he has stepped down as publisher of the Washington Missourian but is still the paper’s owner. The newspaper’s co-owners, his daughters, resigned Wednesday in protest. The cartoon published Wednesday shows the white woman asking for someone to call 911, but the masked black man says, ‘Good luck with that, lady … we defunded the police.’ The cartoon was published amid protests across the nation against police brutality and following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Some protesters are pushing to ‘defund the police’ – a wide-ranging catch-all term for shifting law enforcement resources – over the death of Floyd and other black Americans killed by law enforcement. Miller wrote in a column that the cartoon was meant to convey opposition to defunding police but was ‘racially insensitive.’

Boner Candidate #3: I WOULDN’T LOOK FOR HIM BECAUSE THERE’S A CHANCE HE MIGHT BE FOUND

POLK, NE — Polk County authorities are searching for a man caught on camera wearing peculiar clothes and trespassing. The images were captured Saturday by Chad Hoffman’s trail cam on land he rents near Polk, which is about 20 miles northwest of York.  The photos show a man wearing a utility belt, a bra and not much else.  A long knife appears to be hanging from the belt. “I did a double-take and didn’t quite believe what I saw in that picture,” Hoffman said. “Something out of the ordinary, obviously.” The camera picked up more shots of the mystery man early Sunday morning. He was seen wearing slightly different clothes and riding off on an ATV.  Hoffman says he’s missing a deer stand that was still in the box and was stored on the property. He thinks that’s what is on the back of the ATV in one of the photos. “Everybody is kind of on edge around here,” Hoffman said. “Especially going down there we have crops to take care of and there’s some cattle down there so we have to keep our heads on a swivel.” Hoffman sent the photos to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.  Sheriff Dwaine Ladwig says he considers the mystery man a possible threat and that the situation is “very concerning.”
