Working for the LAPD is probably not too fun for horses. First of all, it's work; work sucks. Police horses are mostly urban professionals, and they spend a lot of time in the city, among crowds of people, not frolicking in a meadow somewhere or roughing it on trails like other horses. Now, they have to deal with jerk-offs writing on their butts. According to a release from the LAPD, a stealthy but stupid tagger "marked the hind-quarters" of a well-known Venice Beach police horse named Charlie on Tuesday. The silver graffiti was washed off of Charlie later that night, but it's pretty wild that no one noticed the vandalism taking place in time to stop it. The LAPD is actively investigating incident.
