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.
He Ate Too Much. He's Stuffed
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 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.
I Don't Care!
Sometimes, you just have to go. Sometimes it doesn't matter what kind of cars with flashing lights are following you, even if they're telling you to pull over.
The nice part about this is we figure that while the cop probably did write him a ticket – he was not driving safely, after all – it was really just because of the letter of the law, and wouldn't have if it had been safer. This is like the climax of a stupid comedy from the eighties. Having to race home to go to the bathroom, and a police officer starts tailing you.
He's Getting Away Very Slowly
A situation can go from bad to worse in an instant, as this police officer learned. On the other hand, this could have been the fastest turtle ever, and we bet the police still could have caught up with it. But rules are rules, and now that the suspect is armed, we're sure they brought in the big guns.
Maybe they got some veggies at the store or something to distract it. We're sure the turtle would like a carrot more than it would like a disgusting nightstick. We hear those don't taste all that good.
