After decades of treating bar fights like national security emergencies and sending multiple cruisers to routine traffic stops, new evidence shows that Delaware police officers may actually be doing real police work.
The suspicion first arose last week when a group of thieves, believed responsible for multiple car break-ins throughout the city, were tracked down and arrested. Although the officers in charge of the investigation were harassing a 14-year old skateboarder and playing with themselves prior to the arrest, they were responsive enough to the 911 call to catch the perpetrators in the area. According to the woman who placed the call, Melinda Rhinestone, the officers who arrived seemed to know what they were doing.
“A bunch of stuff was stolen out of my car, and the police actually found the guys and returned some of my things,” Rhinestone said. “They didn’t even cite me for having an illegal mailbox.”
Rhinestone has been cited for having an illegal mailbox 37 times in the last 2 years.
Further evidence of the cops transformation presented itself earlier this week when a murder occurred on the city’s South side. Instead of of calling the FBI or the Ashley Police Department and asking what to do, Delaware police officers actually processed the crime scene and arrested the alleged shooter. And, according to Police Chief Al Macon, they didn’t even even cite a man for jaywalking along the way.
“This is by far the most real police work I’ve ever seen these guys do,” Chief Macon admitted during a phone interview. “They no longer seem to be following the advice I normally give, which is that, in Delaware, pretending to be police officers is usually enough.”
Delaware resident Harold Warnell, neighbor to suspected murderer Joel Sellers, said he held his mouth open and stared out the window a full five minutes when he saw the police apprehending someone for an actual crime.
“I just couldn’t believe my fucking eyes,” Warnell said. “They weren’t just arresting someone for a serious crime, they were arresting the person who actually did it. Considering they wrote someone a ticket for not having their dog on a leash last week, it’s quite refreshing, to say the least.”
Sergeant Bob Nimrod was hesitant to take any credit for the recent turnaround, however, instead stating that the change in policing strategies was just a temporary attempt at recreating something he saw on TV.
“I was watching some cop show last week and thought, hell, why not? The cop and robbers game we play is fun and all, but I thought we could actually do some of the more serious stuff too,” Nimrod said.
The recent flare of brilliance is nothing to get used to, Nimrod assured us, stating that the police department will be out in full force for Clancey’s 14th annual Drag Fashion show next week, searching people and checking IDs as usual.
“The department’s yearly attendance at the fashion show is to protect those in attendance and not because we’re undercover faggots or anything,” Nimrod said, looking away and scratching the back of his neck, inadvertently drawing attention to a pair of male officers making out in the background.
Despite the recent successes, members of the community weren’t surprised by Sergeant Nimrod’s statements, acknowledging that the Delaware Police Department will never be more than a group of resentful college dropouts with guns.
“We have to face the facts,” said local store owner Tom Tone. “They’re completely fucking worthless to us.”
I don’t believe any of it. I think the Delaware police are putting people up to committing these crimes as part of their “cops and robbers game.” They don’t really want to commit any real crimes, but the police tell them it’s all part of a new T.V. show. Any thoughts?
lol this is funny. is this site run by the Gazette?
I agree with Thereal McCoy. There’s no way that they just had a turn around. I bet there’s a new series coming out soon sir!
This site is not run by the Gazette. We aspire to rise to their level of professionalism and integrity, though. They are why we got into this business in the first place.
Hello Sofa, Could you please give me a call. My name is Chief Sean LeFever of the Shawnee Hills police Department. 614-889-8258. Thanks
Wow, you guys are attracting quite a bit of attention. Good work.
Is that really the Shawnee Hills Police Chief asking Sofa Malone to call him?
Yes, and please don’t call this guy unless you want to end up with a time share in Boca Raton. I only wish someone had warned me before it was too late!
I hear he is a nice guy, despite his questionable career choice. 🙂
To whoever is running this site: cops and lawyers are crawling it constantly. I know because I’m “in the loop,” and I’ll leave it at that. Watch yourselves! I support what you’re doing and think it is funny, but the Delaware “establishment” (as you described them on your blog) don’t take kindly to this type of deviance. They are going to come after you anyway that they can. They’ll lose, of course, because your content is legal and case law supports it, but they can certainly make things difficult on you. With that said, keep up the good work!
“Deviance?” Where’s the deviance? Lead me to it.
Oh, and another thing, fan with tips – paranoid much?
A lawsuit would be the best thing that ever happened to this website.
You are a complete fucking douche bag… just because you were arrested for sexual assault on your teenage sister and her toy poodle, you are now a little bitter… good stories by the “real college drop out”
