My Sunday continues as well as the rain…..
I am an old fart and I remember the Keystone Cops……a humorous look at 1930s cops and their antics to bring justice to those that do not want it……
I bring this up because of something I read not long ago…….we all have heard about the cops that are sent to the wrong house to make their arrests and sometimes it does not end well…..but this is a new twist on the wrong house scenario……
A huge mistake led to police officers arresting each other. Undercover police went to Detroit and posed as drug dealers. However, thanks to a mess up, another police group thought that they were real drug dealers and so they raided the house in what turned out to be one of the most embarrassing things ever seen in the department according to the Police chief (see video below).
The incident occurred when officers from the 12th precinct in Detroit went undercover with the purpose of pretending to be drug dealers so they could arrest buyers. Two buyers went to the house where the pretend drug dealing police officers were but they were actually police going undercover to arrest people selling drugs. They were from the 11th district of Detroit police. They began to search the place when they arrived and they were wearing body cams that captured the whole incident of the officers fighting and punching each other.
It was said that the whole incident turned out to be something like you would see on the Keystone Cops silent films. Now the event has sparked an investigation. This is not the first time that something similar has happened. During the 80s, an incident occurred that saw two police officers killed.
While it is understood that when going undercover only those that are immediately involved can know what is happening, it can bring about unwanted consequences and mistakes. It seems that in this case, the Detroit police kept the undercover operations too undercover as one department pretending to be drug buyers arrested the other pretending to be drug dealers.
I want to add something but for the life of me I cannot think of anything to add other than…you dudes need to talk to each other.
Sunday is rainy and MoMo is bored……she does not like all the thunder……so we wait for a break so she can get her run on…..
My final thought for this Sunday….is for all the Mothers that visit IST…….
Be Well, Be Safe
