Well folks, we’ve been having a lot of fun on Twitter today, haven’t we?
We’ve been constantly bombarding the Essex Police (@essexpoliceuk) with ridiculous non-crimes, using the hashtag #policefarce
But we’ve not just been doing this for faeces and chuckles, oh no.
It’s been our light-hearted retaliation to a truly ridiculous situation.
The Essex Police have arrested a man for using Blackberry Messenge to organise…
Of course, there is more to it than that.
At least, there is probably more to it than that.
OK, there could be more to it than that.
Quite frankly, the police don’t seem to know.
So, what are we left with?
A man is arrested and will be in court to answer charges of…what?
Conspiracy To Make Wet?
Loitering With Intent To Drench?
Incitement Of Fun?
The best argument anyone can make against him is that it could be poor timing to organise any kind of mass event via social networking, given the current climate.
I don’t necessarily agree with that either, but it doesn’t matter.
Poor timing is not a crime, if it was I would have been arrested in 1997 when my mother caught me watching a pirate copy of Busty Latin Lovers just as her Wednesday book club arrived.
No, there’s only one possible explanation, given their sudden fear of water.
The police are witches.
