'Blow it up': Plods pop round for chat with Commonwealth Games tweeter


Re: Expect nothing less (@ JeffyPooh)

"There are lots of shades of grey*. The situation you describe would be pitch black, what the cops did was ~50% grey, and what they should have done -i.e. read (and understand) the entire fucking tweet, and don't bother the author of said tweet- would have been pure white."

From my understanding the original poster was not grey but red, white and blue with a distinct aversion to green.

What the cops did was react to a keyword and sally forth to slay the mighty dragon and give a prod some hassle to boot. Perhaps the cops were of a green persuasion and thought they would have some craic with the quare fellah.

Waste of police time, nice touch phoning ahead. I am not sure if that was not a sinister ploy rather than stupidity.
