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?

IanCWelp, twitch is going to suck now. Thanks google.07/25/2014 - 6:30am
Sleaker@MP - Looked up hitbox, thanks.07/24/2014 - 9:40pm
Matthew WilsonI agree, but to me given other known alternatives google seems to the the best option.07/24/2014 - 6:30pm
Andrew EisenTo be clear, I have no problem with Google buying it, I'm just concerned it will make a slew of objectively, quantifiably bad changes to Twitch just as it's done with YouTube over the years.07/24/2014 - 6:28pm
Matthew WilsonI doubt yahoo has the resources to pull it off, and I not just talking about money.07/24/2014 - 6:15pm
SleakerI wouldn't have minded a Yahoo purchase, probably would have been a better deal than Tumblr seeing as they paid the same for it...07/24/2014 - 6:13pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's the golden age of Hitbox, I guess.07/24/2014 - 6:08pm
Matthew Wilsonagain twitch was going to get bought. It was just who was going to buy it . Twitch was not even being able to handle the demand, so hey needed a company with allot of infrastructure to help them. I can understand why you would not want Google to buy it .07/24/2014 - 5:49pm
Andrew Eisen"Google is better than MS or Amazon" Wow. Google, as I mentioned earlier, progressively makes almost everything worse and yet there are still two lesser options. Again, wow!07/24/2014 - 5:43pm
Andrew EisenI don't know. MS, in my experience, is about 50/50 on its products. It's either fine or it's unusable crap. Amazon, well... I've never had a problem buying anything from them but I don't use any of their products or services so I couldn't really say.07/24/2014 - 5:42pm
Matthew WilsonGoogle is better than MS or Amazon.07/24/2014 - 5:33pm
Sleaker@AE - I've never seen youtube as a great portal to interact with people from a comment perspective. like ever. The whole interface doesn't really promote that.07/24/2014 - 5:28pm
Andrew EisenNor I. From a content producer's perspective, almost every change Google implements makes the service more cumbersome to use. It's why I set up a Facebook fan page in the first place; it was becoming too difficult to connect with my viewers on YouTube.07/24/2014 - 4:50pm
Sleakerwonder if anyone is going to try and compete with google, I'm not a huge fan of the way they manage their video services.07/24/2014 - 4:41pm
Andrew EisenIt happened. Google bought Twitch. http://venturebeat.com/2014/07/24/googles-1b-purchase-of-twitch-confirmed-joins-youtube-for-new-video-empire/07/24/2014 - 4:28pm
MaskedPixelanteI hope Nintendo actually follows through with the DS Virtual Console, that sounds like it could be cool.07/24/2014 - 2:15pm
james_fudgePeople don't deny it persay, they bristle at the idea that it's a "problem" that nneds to be "fixed."07/24/2014 - 2:15pm
Papa MidnightRacism and Misogny are heavily prevalent in the gaming and online arena. Getting people to actually admit that, however...07/24/2014 - 11:42am
Papa MidnightThat very thing is somthing that anyone who has been subjected to racial-based targeting online could actually state that they've experienced.07/24/2014 - 11:41am
Papa MidnightPerfect example: "I have yet to talk to a man who has had to call a police officer due to a stalker, only to be told nothing can be done until they are physically assaulted."07/24/2014 - 11:40am
