Hard to argue with that kind of logic. Plenty of speeding tickets get let off with a warning, and you have a better chance if everybody inside is properly wearing your seatbelts.
The funny thing is, in the event of a crash, having the big teddy bear bounce around might have actually been safer than buckling it in, at least for the humans. Still, demonstrating that you do know how to drive safely and just happened to be speeding at that time is a good step toward not having to pay a fine.
You Came to the Right Place
Talk about good luck that turns bad. This guy would have certainly rather have gone to his dorm and slept off the fun night, but now he has a story about spending a night in jail without having done anything too wrong, and without being charged with anything.
We wonder if he told this story to his friends as soon as possible, or if he waited a little bit of time. Like a year. Or four years. Or, if he's hoping to become a politician, he didn't tell anybody until he was retired.
Every Single Grain
We've all had bad days, so we like to at least hope that this police officer was having a good day before this call came in. What do you say to a person who thinks that her neighbor is stealing all her sand off a beach? We have news for you lady, there's always going to be more sand.
As an aside, did you know there are more trees in the world than grains of sand on beaches? It's one of those things you wouldn't imagine is true, but it is. We think.
You Have to Learn From the Best
A SWAT team is training in aggressive takedowns and attacks. It's almost like they're professional airsoft players. If you're good at something, never do it for free, but we bet that these PD members had a good time showing off their skills against some relative amateurs.
It's important from all these stories to remember, that police officers, even the most highly-trained ones, are people under all that armor and training, and even they have things they like to do in their free time.
Sir, the Handcuffs Won't Stay On
Well, that's good community policing, for you. We didn't know that police officers had jurisdiction over the afterlife, but if this story is any indication, it's just as easy as going in, saying some stern stuff to the spirit, and clamping it with a pair of handcuffs.
Was this one of the bedsheets with holes cut in it kind of ghosts? Jangling chains from “A Christmas Story?” Tell us what we're working with here. Every story has ghosts that work a little differently. No wonder police have to go through so much training.
