1 Funny? October 17, 2012 at 8:32 AM

I read that on the department’s facebook page and thought it was amusing at first, but I am sure that it wasn’t funny to the person who reported it. This kind of “joke” encourages people to ignore a potentially serious situation and also wastes valuable police department time. Are there consequences for such a “prank.”

I don’t want to live in the world you’re living in.

Seriously??

They sell these things everywhere. It’s funny.

I’m sure this thing was completely obvious, so no there should be no consequences for such a ‘prank’. There should be consequences for people who waste the police’s time for calling over something obvious. First it’s this, next its the halloween skeleton I have hanging on my door.

These things have been around for years. I was more than a little surprised that somebody actually called this into the police. I would have thought everybody would have seen this by now.
