Unalaska, a town out near Dutch Harbor, has a until recently little-known author(ess) in the Sargent in charge of writing the activities of the police department.....a bit of her work:
Or this one, about a routine animal complaint:Domestic Disturbance
A grown man asked an officer to tell his grown dipsomaniac son to go beddy-bye. The officer helped the drunk to bed, but declined the request to feed the family cat on the way out.
a bit more:Petite piles of poo prompted protests to police.
Public Safety (01:46 hrs, 11/9/11) — Officer watched three extremely intoxicated and giggling louts urinate on the road, on themselves, on one another, and on a taxi in front of the Harbor View Bar. The wet-legged men abashedly explained to the admonishing officer they had been kicked out of the bar before having an opportunity to use the restroom there.
Domestic Disturbance (00:26 hrs, 12/30/11) — Drunken boarding house tenant reported that his equally drunken nemesis had taken his cell phone, and he wanted it back. Officers told both sots they would go to jail if they continued behaving toward one another in such a fashion.
We should all have such LEO's, eh? Oh, and thanks to the esteemed, recently-married Mr. Gray from a remote outpost in Wales for the tip some months ago about the site.
Now, gentle readers, tell me this: Why, in the name of all that's good, do gun sales in the US increase dramatically after such things as school massacres, mass shootings, etc? Why do we believe crime is on the increase when it's shown to be at a 20 year low? Why, after proclamations that the racial issues in our country are all but past, does it seem like they are just surfacing?
Why oh why are we like this?
