PHOENIX, Arizona (Reuters) -- "Send in the SWAT monkey" is not an order police commanders are accustomed to giving, but that could change if an Arizona police department follows through on a proposal to train a capuchin monkey for high-risk police operations.

A Special Weapons and Tactics veteran from Mesa, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix, has researched the possibility of landing a $100,000 federal grant to fund a pilot program to train one monkey.

"Everybody laughs about it until they really start thinking about it," Sean Truelove told the East Valley Tribune, a local newspaper. "It could change the way we do business."

Major city police departments in the United States use paramilitary SWAT teams for hostage situations and in situations involving heavily armed criminals

So what do they give ChimChim a loaded bananna or a .44 magnum "The most powerful gun in the world".

Now for the bonus round:
Whos monkey was Chim Chim.
What SKA song has the term "loaded bananna"
AND
What TWO movies refer to the .44 magnum as the most powerful handgun.


Eugene,
Is it time to retire now that the monkeys are taking over?:wink:.

Have a day eh

Joe

Spreidel (sp?), Speed and Racer X's little brother owned Chim-Chim. Other than Dirty Harry-no idea.

I read that this morning, and immediately flashed back to The Right Stuff and the AF guys making fun of NASA sending a chimp into space:

"Does he look like the kind of guy who'd doo-doo in the capsule?"

Imagine being the guy in prison who got caught by the SWAT monkey!

That would seriously suck. I'd imagine it would be tough to get respect after having been busted by a monkey.

I got that in my D.A. update yesterday.

The pullup requirement is being raised to 150.

Capuchins are the same monkey seen in "Pirates of the Caribbean", they're tiny. Getting busted by something the size of a cat would make you the "butt" of a lot of jokes in prison. Of course, it gives a new meaning to "Monkey on your back". I'd hate to have to train the monkey in Judgemental shooting. Monkeys are generally bad-tempered.

Chim-Chim was Spridle's monkey (referred to as Speed Racer's brother above).
All I know about the .44 reference was in "Magnum Force."
Loaded Banana reference?? "Monkey Man" by either Toots and the Maytalls or The Specials??

"The public wants to see Buck Rogers, not some monkey in space. No Buck Rogers, no bucks."
One of the great quotes from The Right Stuff!

Yep Spreitel, The loaded bananna is from a Toasters tune. I think Jim Belushi and Arnold had a discussion about the .44 Magnum in "Red Heat" and that line was used. Maybe the monkey will subdue people by flinging poop and then doing the 2001 Space Odyssey on him.

At my agency we use a similar animal for high risk ops, commonly called "the new guy."
