I don’t know why, but I find this situation to be hilarious. Of course, Nix and Cosgrove are innocent until proven guilty.

That’s the wonderful system we have in America. Having said that, allegedly breaking into a house and finding out that it’s owned by a cop is really bad luck.

It’s even worse when you allegedly crawl through a dog door, get kicked in the face, and then get hit by a taser.

Not great, my friends. Not great at all.

I’ve never broken into a house at any point in my life, and I never intend to. However, if I ever find myself in a home invasion situation, I’d hope like hell the house isn’t owned by a cop.

Best of luck to these two in court! It sounds like they’re going to need it.
