Do any of you know who Rob Furlong is? I didn't think so. I know who he is but I've never met him. I've discussed his shots with other guys who do this sort of thing but that's about as close as I've come. For the record my best LD hits were at 2,000 on a borrowed system, so this guy is way ahead of me as a shooter. None of that is important, but I thought I'd trow it in for free.
Mr. Furlong returned home after winning fame and glory on the fields of Afghanistan to get a job in his local cop shop. I guess he was an OK cop. I have no way of knowing, so we'll give him the benefit of the doubt. He wasn't a cop for long. He had a bit of an odd behavior that got him fired. It seems Rob's long distance fetish also applies to pissing on his fellow cops. There is nothing in the article that states exactly how far away the other cop was when Robbie took his wiz, so there is no way of knowing if it was another record or not. In any event the City of Edmonton has been ordered to give him his job back.
The article says that being fired for what he did was too harsh. I wonder if they thought that it really is ok to piss on cops, or if the fact he can stick a 750 grain bullet in their chest at a distance of over 24 football fields had anything to do with it.
