Nope, Not Going There

Officer Cynical: "What are they doing that's suspicious?"

Dispatch: "They're just walking down the street and the caller feels that's suspicious."

Officer Cynical: "10-8."

One morning I was startled by a cop car, lights strobing, sirens flashing, who screeched to a halt in front of my house as I was getting in my car. He was checking out a report of a suspicious black male running through someone's yard. "That's the garbage man" I told him. (We had a really nice one who would bring the empty can back to the front of one's house.) Some people are just paranoid idiots.
