sweatin the small stuff
From the “files of the Keystone Cops” department……….
It seems that four New York cops rolled on a disturbance call to this apartment building in the Bronx to deal with some kind of landlord-tenant dispute. They all pull up and walk into the building fully expecting to find some crackhead getting slapped around by his landlord over rent or some such shit.
Instead the first thing they see is some punk leaning against a hallway wall sucking on a big fat spliff. They go to bust the stoner who starts running and the chase is on. So here’s four of New York City’s finest in various degrees of physical shape running thru this building chasing the stoner.
They run up stairs, down stairs, thru hallways, past the landlord who’s still slapping his crackhead tenant around, until they turn a corner and all four cops find themselves face to face with a really pissed off pit-bull.
The cops see the pit-bull, the pit-bull bum rushes the cops, and the stoner sees Bob Marley and goes out the window. According to my many inside sources, after the smoke cleared the toll read like this. Twenty-six bullets expended, one deadass pit-bull, one bitten officer, plus three other officers wounded by each other's gunshots.
