Hey, I Know - Next Time They Can Fly!
Millcreek Township (near Erie, PA) police officers attended the weeklong 27th annual National Tactical Officers Association conference began Sept. 19 at Pittsburgh's convention center. There were so many of them that it took them 5 unmarked cars to get there, according to an article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, One of America's Great Newspapers.
But it took only 4 cars to get back. The officers were so dedicated to cutting costs on the return that they decided that it was OK to leave one of their cars at the hotel in Pittsburgh. The unmarked cars receive such heavy use that the fifth wasn't discovered missing for about three weeks. The Erie Times-News says the 2006 white Ford Crown Victoria had somehow been left behind in a motel parking lot.
These fine officers, who are entrusted with weapons capable of delivering deadly force, can't keep track of a car. Great.
