I’ve talked before about how much police blotters entertain me, but sometimes you see things in them that just beg for full coverage.For instance…
A woman called the police early Saturday morning during an argument with her husband after he claimed that the woman’s daughter performed oral sex on him, and the daughter was better at it.
So many questions. For starters, how badly do you have to be losing an argument before saying that seems like your best option or even like a decent idea? And assuming that the better blower who some digging has shown is the man’s step daughter is of legal age, what purpose does calling the cops serve? Really, what are they gonna do, judge? And if she’s on the wrong side of ye old sex regulations, how dumb/intoxicated/in love with the insides of prisons do you have to be to let that one slip out?
Police blotters are great on their own, but sometimes I think that the newspapers that publish them need to figure out when to let things stand alone and when something is worth investing all available powers of investigation into. I’d like to think that I’ve made a pretty good case for doing the latter here.
