Comes a tale via the daily docket of interesting incidents in our fair community.
In one instance, according to city police, a male reportedly exposed himself inside a city convenience store one Tuesday.
This occurred multiple times that same day by the same man, according to reports.
In the same store.
What struck me as unusual is that this alleged crime took place on a Tuesday. The workers at the store decided to report this incident on Wednesday.
Why the delay? Was it that difficult to identify the face of the suspected flasher?
Maybe the poor clerks thought this would become a regular event inside their store and grew concerned when the flasher failed to return the next day.
In another report, officers were summoned to what they initially were told was a dispute inside a city home between the city man and woman.
Police found, instead, the two had been engaged - and I'm quoting here from the docket entry - "sex instead."
Not really sure what the legal term "sex instead" means here.
Maybe we have really confused people.
Perhaps authorities should hand out legal books to those wishing to file an incident report.
