When you’re a cop in a college town, you need to make your own excitement. There are only so many detox victims, noise complaints, and duckling endangerment cases you can process before you begin to feen for the danger and thrills you signed up for when you pledged your life to the Blue. That’s why I have nothing but the utmost respect for this Ann Arbor Police officer who put numerous student lives on the line in pursuit of an ambulatory perp who was already seconds away from being apprehended. Meet the best backup you could ever call for (listen with sound for full effect):
So what if the officer completely and senselessly tore up some sod and obliterated a light pole (before proceeding to drag the latter across the quad)? That’s a small price to pay when you’re in hot pursuit of swift justice. Would you have preferred the officer take the other two sides of the triangle and let the perp maybe get away, or smash that muthafuckin’ hypotenuse and ensure our perp got a heaping helping of taser casserole? The answer is so obvious it need not be said.
Our Good and Noble PoPo had the sirens on, so I don’t want to hear about how they almost pulled a Halo 3 and Mongoose Mowdown’d some sophomores. Typical liberal college students trying to obstruct justice by not getting out of the way. If you prefer nice lawns, functioning light posts, or your life to criminal justice, maybe you should be spending less time on the quad and more time in the classroom learning about the foundations of our country.
When it comes to police sirens, one must stay woke, even on the quad. You never know when duty might call..
