Brookline PD logs are the best

My personal fav is

Assault and battery on Beacon Street: At 5:31 a.m. a caller reported that at midnight his roommate threw a mayonnaise jar at the back of his head.

Lots of marijuana smoking by teens too

Why cant we get this level of detail in Boston??

Non-emergency line? Does that work everywhere?

If I was the 911 operator

I would say, "That's all for the best, sir. If it didn't smell like garlic, it would probably smell like you."

Needs context; not entirely insane

Acetylene gas, used in welding, and extremely flammable and explosive, smells like garlic. But then again, if I were calling 911 about a suspected gas leak, I would probably describe it as "smells like welding gas," not "smells like garlic." And for sure I'd be doing it from my cell phone while standing in the street outside.

Aggressive skunk?

"Aggressive Skunk" smells like "garlic in the house" sometimes, too.

Airwick Puttanesca scent!

I learned two things after

I learned two things after reading the link: there are mountain lions in Brookline and some people in that town have such lame lives that they are still calling 911 on people for smoking weed in 2018.

Threats to the peace in Brookline

By on
    - dope-smoking teens
    -noisy basketball
    -graffiti
    -roommates armed with mayonnaise jars at 5 AM
    -garlic
    -turkeys
    -kittens
    -agressive skunks
    -mountain lions
    -creepy guy with mask, aviator glasses, skull head necklace, and American flag pin harassing women

The last is actually kind of disturbing. Perhaps a Republican candidate for something. Hope the mountain lion gets him.
