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?

mthielThis reminds me of schools a few years ago who forbade their students from having MySpace accounts. I don't mean blocking MySpace from the school, I mean banning the kids from having accounts)03/29/2015 - 5:12pm
Constermthiel, that is fucked up. Threatening to call social services on parents if you find out they let their kids play the wrong kind of video games is a suicidal move for schools.03/29/2015 - 5:07pm

Matthew Wilson@mask that tweet says zeldu wiiu will be missing, it says nothing about some kind of remaster.03/29/2015 - 4:01pm
MaskedPixelanteI highly doubt Zelda will be missing from E3. They've got something lined up, next year is the 30th anniversary.03/29/2015 - 3:59pm

InfophileSony's customer service has always been crap, but up till now it's been manageable crap. A few cases of people having to pay for being hacked at worst, the Other OS removal... This one is going to be much worse for them.03/28/2015 - 1:34pm
WymorenceWhen did Sony start doing the ransomware stuff...? other than the old BMG rootkit stuff that is.03/28/2015 - 12:45pm
ZippyDSMleeother keyboards work but my keyboard will not work on it works on all the laptops tho...03/27/2015 - 11:22pm

Andrew EisenThat would mean either Nintendo's next home console will be out by next year or the next Zelda game is suffering a two year delay. Both extraordinarily unlikely.03/27/2015 - 8:34pm

MechaCrashMiyamoto once said "a delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever." While this can be taken to excess, it is good that Nintendo remembers it.03/27/2015 - 7:44pm
MaskedPixelanteYay for it not being a buggy mess like AC Unity. Boo that it got delayed til November 2016.03/27/2015 - 7:07pm
