Pulling the occasional weekend duty at The Providence Journal required me to check the overnight police reports in the Capital City. Always interesting, reading the first-hand narratives of incidents and arrests that officers have written -- they often quote offenders, and their reports really constitute stories. Here are two cases where arresting officers tried reason, but were met with drunken anger. I quote:
-- Offender One, a woman.
"I don't give a f***. F*** that. These cops are a*******."
They also have handcuffs...
-- Offender Two, a man.
"You guys are a bunch of dicks, I don't have to go, f*** this."
Oh, yes, you do...
