David Spade is a Badass!!!

Actor Buys Guns for Phoenix Police

Newsday (New York)

The Phoenix Police Department has gotten some high-powered goodies courtesy of actor David Spade.

The one-time Phoenix resident donated $100,000 so that the department can buy approximately 50 AR-15 rifles, The Associated Press reports.

Spade said he wanted to make the donation after seeing a TV news report about Phoenix officers having to buy their own rifles. Spade grew up in the Phoenix area and graduated from Arizona State University.

Phoenix Police Sgt. Alan Hill says the rifles will be given to patrol officers and that the agency was grateful for the gifts.

"These guys need to be able to do their jobs and I am just happy I could help," Spade said in a statement released by his publicist.


I have a new found respect for David Spade. I've never cared much for his acting, but as a human being he is high on my list.

Spade has a history of helping out law enforcement in Phoenix:

I applaud his wisdom in recognizing that his old hometown officers are being outgunned by criminals and gave them a better chance at leveling the field.
