Re: “Best of the Blotter

It does seem like it is not chic for CL to continue the blotter. It really shows how hard it is to judge the past using the prism of todays values. But if anything, it does show the difficult positions we put cops in, and how unfair it is to judge a cops work by a 4 second video clip.

Re: “Best of the Blotter

Most of these are cases of people with untreated mental illness and substance use disorders. This article is a poor reflection on our State and on your publication.

Re: “Best of the Blotter

I feel bad that this makes such a joke of mental illness, and the subjects are usually those of lesser means. Especially in the format of one after another... It ends up being not so entertaining.

Study harder

“..the caller told her she would be ... taken to jail if she refused to pay the taxes..., the caller instructed her to wire $900 to an attorney handling her case...”

This scam has been going on for more than a year.

Re: “Break a sweat

Nice police work, guy is threatening someone and the cops just knock and shrug when no one answers. What are the police good for again?

Re: “Pin-sanity

So what are the "city-approved techniques on reviving a drunk"? I'm assuming it isn't a cup of coffee and holding your hair back when you are puking.

In re: Spring fever

“...the car that was parked with the engine running.”

Why is this an offense ? They were drinking but on one was driving; the car was [legally] parked with the engine on to keep them warm.

In re: In hole, stop digging

“He's also accused of drinking in public...”

If alcohol is a legal substance for adults and being in public is legal, why is consuming alcohol in public an offense ?

Re: “Patriot games

"Game on"

There was no need for the cop to say anything to the man the second time around.

He should have just called the tow company to let them take care of it. The tow operator would have certainly loved the business.
