My Tax Dollars at Work This Morning

It was cold again this morning on my walk to work – 45 degrees according to Weather Underground. Midway down 14th Street I saw a cop standing on the sidewalk. A few seconds later a guy came running around the corner with some large item and took it inside a house. As I walked past I heard the cop ask him for a description. “So you saw him come out of your side door, and run that way? Yah. We’ve got a bunch of cars looking for him right now!”

I turned at the corner and kept going. A block later outside of the Jiffy Lube there was a cop car parked on the wrong side of the street. As I got closer another one pulled up. Then a third. They had a punk kid on the side of the road. He was surrounded, but actively denying any wrongdoing. You gotta be suspicious of someone in a sleeveless shirt when it’s less than 50 degrees outside though. I made sure to give him the evil eye as I passed.

It's Christmas time! Stop robbing people and be nice!
