I love this story all kinds of a lot.
A police officer in San Jose, Calif. discovered that his 14-year-old daughter had had sex with her 15-year-old boyfriend.
So the cop did what any father would do: Try to arrest the boyfriend for deflowering his kid.
The officer, who is not being identified, rode over to the boy’s house and staged a “fake arrest,” even going so far as to threaten the kid by saying “You don’t mess with a cop’s daughter.”
Problem for the policeman is that the boy’s parents were videotaping the whole thing, and now our friend the cop is being investigated by the internal affairs department of the San Jose Police Dept.
Fathers just can’t get away with anything these days. How else are you going to scare a kid into staying away from your little girl if you can’t slap handcuffs on him and smack him around?
(Note: The cop in the story is NOT the guy in the photo above. I just thought that was a pretty remarkable picture, so I used it.)
**I’m not much of a baseball fan anymore, but I do get into the playoffs. And it took me only one day to see something thrilling.
When I flipped on the Phillies-Reds game around the sixth inning Wednesday night, I noticed a big 0 in the hits column for the Cincinnati boys.
Turns out Roy Halladay of the Phils, maybe the best pitcher in baseball right now, was throwing a no-hitter. And he did it, only the second no-hitter in postseason history (Don Larsen, of course, tossed a perfect game for the Yankees in the 1956 World Series.)
Sure it was only the first round. And sure, baseball’s playoffs have been a little diluted. But this was a thrilling moment for a guy, Halladay, playing in his first postseason game. What the heck does the guy do for an encore?
