Oops…

I’m relieved he is going to be okay, of course, but I have to feel bad for the officer who may have just unintentionally been “outed” after being assaulted late at night in Saint Paul. Seems he was, um, walking back to his car just after 0200 from a bar in one of the city’s most liberal, artsy neighbourhoods with another man when he was attacked. Oops. You’ll note the paper doesn’t name the officer, or, tellingly, even what department he works for.

I wonder just how evasive his answers about what he’d been doing at the bar were…

Yay for the MPD…

A new WCCO story about Bryan Anderson… most notable is the final sentance:

Police said they do not think the people were urban explorers.

Which of course makes me happy. File under ‘D’ for “dumbass”, not ‘E’ for “explorer”. Also worth noting is that the article makes no mention of what UE is or entails, suggesting that awareness of UE is becoming mainstream. Some may be saddened, or angered, or joyed, at this… but that’s the way it looks to me, anyway.
