The following true event just occurred today:
The officer is talking to the suspect, which quickly begins to flee. The officer informs the suspect, now criminal from fleeing the scene of crime, to stop or they'll be under arrest. The criminal quickly stops, turns around, then says, "Will you arrest me, please?"
Taken aback, the officer quickly comes to her senses and grabs the criminal's wrists.
"Don't forget the handcuffs."
The officer places the criminal in handcuffs then pushes him roughly through the door, stating in a gruff voice, "Get in there punk. Now turn around so I can search you for any weapons."
The criminal begins to giggle.
"Looks like your clean. What were you doing running away, then?"
By now, the criminal is giggling uncontrollably to answer. With his arms still pinned behind his back, he states,
"Officer, don't forget my sister."
"She's already laying down for a nap and if you don't watch it, that's right where you're heading, mister."
"OK, Officer. May I get my handcuffs off now and watch a movie?"
"Oh, OK." The invisible handcuffs are taken off. "Do you want some lunch right now, too?"
"Yes, please. With a drink."
So the officer heads to the kitchen to make the obliging criminal lunch (and drink) while putting a dinosaur movie on.
It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it. Just call me Officer Mom.
