Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

May 21, 2009 -

If you've been up all night playing Resident Evil 5 and you're a little freaked out by the experience and you happen to live in Boston, fear not; the local constabulary has your back. The Boston Police Department has vowed to alert the public to any and all zombie attacks.

That reassuring news comes by way TruTV's Dumb as a Blog, which chronicles an exchange of tweets between @Boston_Police and another Twitter user. Here's how it went down:

Boston_Police:  INJURED OFFICER: Officer from district 4 transported to Beth Israel Hospital, human bite to arm, suspect in custody.

willcady:  @Boston_Police if that was a zombie bite, would you tell us?

Boston_Police:   @willcady Yes, absolutely

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

Since when do the Boston Police have a sense of humor?

Maybe they got enough bad PR from thier overreactions and mellowed out a bit?

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

Meh, now Boston will probably see something completely harmless (like a plastic bag floating in the breeze) and proceed to flip out and declare the beginning of the Zombie Apocalypse. 

God help us if Zombies attack us wielding deadly Lite Brites.

You can't trust ANYONE these days!  The police officer LIES.  D:>

"HEY! LISTEN!"

"HEY! LISTEN!"

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

*gasp* but what if the guys responsible for telling the public ARE the zombies?!?!

 

....it may already be too late!

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

just buy the zombie survival guide by Max Brooks, it will tell you everything you need to know.

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

ROFL

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

Given their track record on identifying bombs, I wouldn't trust the Boston PD to know a zombie bite from a scraped knee.

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

Yes, I wish we had more police officers with Braaaaaaaaaaaaains.

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

The Book "Zombie CSU" deals with stuff like this, the guy interviewed all sorts of people about what would happen if a real life Z-Day were to go down

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

Hahaha!

Nice to see a more light hearted story :)

Re: Boston Police Promise to Report Zombie Attacks

 That's awesome; at least we know Boston has our backs when the zombies come for us but do they have our backs when the aliens come?

Craig R.Too many gamers were harassing and abusing long before Baldwin decided to 'legitimize' the lunatic fringe, but that term certainly made the lunatics easier to pick out of the crowd07/31/2015 - 4:58pm
Craig R.Which is why the entire GG crowd looks like a giant bad egg07/31/2015 - 4:55pm
Craig R.Irony: the people who are feeling hostility toward their 'gamer' identity are often those who are most hostile to everybody else07/31/2015 - 4:55pm
Andrew EisenIt's not about gamers at all, it's discussing the harassment and abuse that Sarkeesian and Quinn had suffered. So yeah, not a great title but not an attack on gamers either.07/31/2015 - 4:48pm
Andrew EisenI agree than many of the titles are kinda bunk though. For example, Ars Technia's "The death of the 'gamers' and the women who 'killed' them" doesn't really work for the article.07/31/2015 - 4:47pm
Andrew EisenAnd I still don't see how articles like Polygon's "An awful week to care about video games" can be construed as an attack.07/31/2015 - 4:25pm
Andrew Eisen18 total? I've seen several lists and the total has never been above 14. The most popular collection seems to be 9 on Aug. 28 then three more on Aug. 29, Sep. 2 and Sep. 3.07/31/2015 - 4:24pm
Infophile@Goth_Skunk: Your distaste for TMS is noted and given exactly the respect it deserves. The fact that you don't like a site doesn't mean they can't be right. In the linked article, they are.07/31/2015 - 4:06pm
Goth_SkunkAnd the worst volleys are the ones being fired by the kind of people who should be standing up and saying 'Hey! This isn't cool! Stop that!'07/31/2015 - 4:05pm
Goth_SkunkNow let's come full circle: One such confrontationally titled article is easy to dismiss. Within a day, nine similarly titled articles are written. Within 4 more days, nine more articles are written. This can't be ignored. This is a blatant attack.07/31/2015 - 4:04pm
Andrew EisenAnd that's totally fine. I too often skip articles and videos based solely on an unappealing title.07/31/2015 - 3:56pm
Goth_SkunkPersonally, I would not waste time reading an article with such a blatantly confrontational title.07/31/2015 - 3:52pm
Andrew EisenGoth - Depends on how the article was written and what it actually said.07/31/2015 - 3:49pm
Goth_SkunkThis is like going fishing and castign a HUGE net that captures tuna, dolphins, sharks, cod, and salmon when all you really want to capture are clownfish.07/31/2015 - 3:48pm
Andrew EisenPerm - If the specific make and model are made clear, I have no problem with the article saving space by refering to them as "these cars" or whatever.07/31/2015 - 3:47pm
Goth_Skunk... Hasbro's widening horizons..." would it not make sense that some would object there is no distinction being made between a reactionary brony and a stable-minded brony?07/31/2015 - 3:47pm
Big PermCars are being recalled because they explode. Editors Note at the end: Not all cars, only this specific make and model07/31/2015 - 3:46pm
Andrew EisenI still feel it was clear that they were admonishing a particular and very specific type of gamer. It's why I had no problem with any of the articles (especially since about half of them weren't really about "gamers" anyway).07/31/2015 - 3:45pm
Goth_Skunk@Andrew: If a columnist had written a "Bronies Are Dead" article, but in the article stated: "Note: I'm not talking about every guy who watches MLP or who self-identifies as a brony, just the type of reactionary holdouts that feel so threatened by..."07/31/2015 - 3:45pm
benohawkYou would if you didn't care.07/31/2015 - 3:43pm
