Any discussion that isn't about drinking, me or me drinking isn't interesting in the least.

Crime Wave Hits Broomfield

Thefts, car "accidents", inappropriate juvenile touching, assaults, domestic violence, and DUI's are just a part of everyday life in Broomfield.

I don't know why I find police blotter pages so facinating, but I do. I especially love peering in at the steamy underbelly of Broomfield, USA, courtesy of their local newspaper.

From this week's police blotter:

"A juvenile was issued a summons for inappropriately touching another juvenile at 5:30 p.m. at The Bay aquatic center, 250 Lamar St." (It's amazing how a phrase like "Inappropriate touching" can sound so vague and so dirty at the same time.)

"Five juveniles were issued curfew and destruction of property summonses after being contacted at 2:15 a.m. damaging lights near Outlook and Summit trails." (What do you expect them to do after you've taken away all their drugs?)

"A window of a 1996 BMW was discovered broken at 4 p.m. while parked at Sun Microsystems, 500 Eldorado Blvd." (Doesn't "BMW" stand for "Break My Windows?")

"A flower pot was knocked over between July 7 and 7 a.m. July 8 on Willow Run Parkway." (Police are rounding up the usual suspects.)

Every week it's the same. Is there no end to the madness?

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
