Someone called the cops in Gainesville, Florida the other day and complained that kids were making a racket while playing basketball in the street.
You can probably figure what happened next.
“So…if you call GPD to complain about kids being kids… This is how Officer White is going to handle it. We’re going to let kids be kids,” the department said in the video.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
