Boulder Police Twitter freakout: Six tweets in four minutes about locking your car

Categories: Crime, Tech

Members of the Boulder Police Department want you to lock your car. Really. Seriously. No kidding. In fact, they so badly want you to lock your car that this morning, the BPD's Twitter account spewed out six tweets telling you to lock your car over the span of four minutes. And reading them back to back to back to back to back to back is flat-out hilarious. We count them down below.

Tweet one, 8:58 a.m.: Our message is clear, straight-forward and based on recent reports. Read it. Think about it. Commit it to memory.

Tweet two, 8:59 a.m.: Just in case you hadn't really thought about the type of person who steals things from cars, you should know: They're not very nice.

Tweet three, 9 a.m.: What's the matter with you people? Do you have so many expensive gadgets that you can afford to have them ripped off without giving it a second thought?

Tweet four, 9:01 a.m.: We have a feeling you people aren't listening. And we've got enough paperwork already, thank you very much!

Tweet five, 9:01 a.m.: Did we mention that crooks are bad? We did? Well, they are. Very bad. And by the way, if you think you're getting your stuff back -- ever -- think again.

Tweet six, 9:02 a.m.: Okay, maybe you're going to lock your car -- but your stupid friends probably won't.

Whew! Glad they got that out of their system. Now, I wonder...did I lock my car?

Michael, some time could be liberated from your busy schedule by abstaining from Twitter.  I appreciate that BPD's tweets all end with the same refrain, but in the context of people constantly being deprived of their possessions as a result of leaving them in plain view in unlocked vehicles, repetition is only appropriate.  The hilarity of these prosaic appeals escapes me.
