Not trying to be rude here, but I swear residents call police for some really silly reasons. People need to stop the crazy calls that potentially take them away from the more serious crimes happening.

My father was in law enforcement for close to 30 years. It always amazed me how his day could vary from very serious crime to the absolutely absurd to almost having to be a psychiatrist and still be approachable and courteous to the general public. They're not perfect and they make mistakes like you and I...but I wouldn't trade jobs with them for all the gold in Fort Knox. Takes a special kind of person to wear the badge and represent it with honor knowing that you could face a life-and-death situation at any time--and it could be your responsibility to take or save it. I wonder if the drunk guy at the store was the same one who has been in the previous Blotters...he's certainly blotto..
