Police reports can be interesting. Especially when they include stuff like this:
I'll be honest - it took me a minute to figure out the sentence's actual intent (which I believe is "Subject attacked in the vicinity of a curb"). But I mean, can't you see some drunk slurring, "I didn't fall - the curb hit me!"?
I understand report verbiage is low on the law enforcement priority list, but I shudder to think of the precedent that could develop.
For example, what if the incident had occurred in a backyard?
SUBJECT ASSAULTED BY GARDEN GNOMES?
While shopping for a vehicle?
SUBJECT HARASSED BY USED CAR DEALERSHIP?
SUBJECT DETAINED BY DUMB-WAITER?
Maybe it's just me, but it seems like a crisis waiting to happen.
P.S. If you haven't been checking out the links on the right-hand side under the heading "In other news," you're probably missing out.
