When a noise complaint was called about a group of kids playing basketball too loudly, this Gainesville, FL police officer showed up to set them straight. And by set them straight, we mean dunking on them while playing basketball.

Officer White handled the issue (or non-issue) like a pro and according to the Gainesville Police Department, he is trying to set up a full game.

Does the five-second rule apply to tasting the rainbow?

Hard to say, but the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office are trying to find out, and being really funny about it. They are investigating a glowing red road, which, upon closer inspection, turned out to be covered in skittles. Was this a prank by one of those sprites that leave candy-related whimsy around the midwest?

No, as it turns out, someone was transporting a crap-load of loose skittles to be fed to cows. Apparently, it’s an old practice to fill cow-feed with candy to keep prices low. Lucky cows. Getting to eat candy for dinner before slaughter and consumption. I wish I could eat candy for dinner!

The Ferguson Police Department is testing out a new device which they think might help prevent unnecessary shooting deaths.

“The Alternative” was invented by a retired police officer and is produced by a California-based company called Alternative Ballistics. It’s an orange accessory that sits on the end of a gun and basically slows down the bullet so it is less likely to kill someone (although it has never actually been used on a human).

“It’s going to feel like you’re getting punched in the chest by Barry Bonds,” CEO Christian Ellis told CNN. “It’s going to break some ribs.”

The company claims it only takes a few seconds to attach the device to the gun, and it doesn’t obstruct the view of the target through the sight.

Here’s a description of how it works according to Alternative Ballistics:

Once the weapon is fired; the bullet embeds itself inside the projectile with no chance of escaping, simultaneously transferring the bullet’s energy, propelling it directly at the target. Once the bullet is fired from the gun into the projectile they permanently become one unit. The docking unit will automatically eject from the weapon and the firearm returns to its normal function before it cycles in a new round.
