Good idea: Speaking politely to the nice officers when they ask you questions.
Bad idea: Politely requesting that those officers not arrest you just yet because you aren’t quite finished masturbating on the staircase.
About 3:35 p.m. Wednesday police were called about a man masturbating in an alley just south of Rainier Avenue South and South Ferdinand Street, “where officers found the 35-year-old suspect sitting on a staircase with his pants around his ankles, in the throes of self-flagellation,” department spokesman Jonah Spagenthal-Lee said.
“When officers told the man to stop, he refused and said he was almost finished.”
The police, apparently not in the mood to negotiate or accommodate, arrested him and charged him with indecent exposure.
And to answer a question I’m amazed I haven’t gotten yet considering most of the posts the last day or 2, I have no idea why everything is coming up wieners lately. I’ve got a backlog of material, but unleashing it in a steady stream as it were wasn’t a planned thing. It’s like everything else around here, it just happens.
