Yesterday SSTG wrote this hilarious blog about the Dartmouth Police Department’s viral Facebook post, looking for three ratchets who stole from a Target, and referring to themselves as the “popo”:
The post was shared hundreds of times and elicited thousands of comments. Obviously the ratchets couldn’t hide in their holes for very long, and the post was effective:
I just want to say, that THIS is what more police departments need to be doing – embracing technology. Like it or not, everyone is on Facebook. Our brand at Turtleboy would not be able to grow without Facebook since our audience grows only as our Facebook group grows, and 80% of our daily traffic comes through FB. Dartmouth PD gets this. And in the last couple days they’ve gained thousands of followers. Now every time they post a BOLO, or any other post that alerts the public to a safety risk on Facebook, they can immediately reach more people.
Every single Police Department in the country should be doing the same thing. Just look at the Bangor, ME Police Facebook page. They use satire, including their world famous “Warrant Wednesdays” to apprehend bad guys. It works. And the Dartmouth PD should be applauded for implementing this method as well.
Apparently not everyone agrees though. This is Erin Kane:
And she was NOT happy about the Dartmouth PD shaming these thieves. Nor was she pleased with Turtleboy for writing about them, which she expressed so eloquently in a series of angry inbox messages she left for Deskie:
Wait…..what? Asking thieves to turn themselves in is social media bullying now? OK.
Evidently Erin Kane is from Clinton, and she enjoyed riding the turtle, so long as all of our blogs aligned with her world view:
Unfortunately for her desk girl was taking a huge smash, and one of the other turtle chicks got snarky with her. This really set her off, as apparently Erin doesn’t like the fact that people said mean things about the shoplifters:
Hello 911?? Someone hurt muh feels!!
But in fairness, the post obviously brought them in. Without the public shaming they could’ve just gone about their business. But once you become Internet famous you kind of have no choice but to turn yourself in.
Then Erin Kane started sending us inspirational quotes about cyberbullying:
Although it’s not really surprising that Erin Kane has a problem with shaming shoplifters. After all, she was just picked up a couple years back for shoplifting herself:
Finally she sent us this, and wanted us to write about how unprofessional the DPD is:
Brilliant. Love the sass game. And for what it’s worth, our tax dollars paying the man or woman behind this Facebook page is effective use of taxpayer money. Instead of walking the beat and hoping he or she runs into the three chicks from Target, he or she spends 30 seconds posting on Facebook, and then waits to find out who the bad guys are. If the public sector was run like a business, they’d all do this. Because it works and it’s cost effective.
Anyway, the Dartmouth PD made a post about being featured on Turtleboy:
As well as a post about the “haters”:
This REALLY set Erin Kane off:
You think Erin Kane’s gonna just sit there and allow the Dartmouth PD to make jokes on social media? Not by the hair of her chinny-chin-chin……chin-chin-chin-chin….
She was also very concerned about the thieves’ children, who would be embarrassed after reading all the commentary on their skankalicious moms:
So let me get this straight. We’re just assuming these three have all reproduced. OK that’s actually fair. But now when people laugh at them for being so dumb, it’s the fault of the people laughing at them as well as the cops, but the actual people committing the crime are the victims? Makes sense.
Speaking of wicked embarrassing parents…..
Oops!!! Pretty sure that isn’t really her daughter, since they don’t look that far apart in age, but the timing in the thread was hilarious nonetheless.
Erin Kane has also been playing the Kevin Lynch card and documenting EVERYTHING with screenshots, so she can send them to every news channel for a massive expo-zay about a police department using social media to apprehend criminals:
And she REALLY wants them to delete their thread:
At this point you have to wonder, which one of those three ratchets is Erin Kane friends with?
After a while she started losing her Goddamn mind and ranting about Helen Keller and mystery Kenyans:
OK then. She seems stable.
Well, at least you’re not alone Erin. Other people are butthurt about the DPD sharing our blog too:
Apparently Ric “with a C,” who goes by Ric Rheaume II because apparently he thinks he’s the King of England and chooses not to refer to himself as “Ric Rheaume Jr,” thinks Turtleboy has been shut down by lawsuits in the past:
He’s “seen instances where they could have been sued and lost.”
Such as…….yea, he’s got nothing. Just like every single person who has ever whined about our real news blog. I remember one time when a local crazy man named Gordon Davis sued us for $153,000 for calling him crazy in our blog. But a year ago today the lawsuit was actually thrown out in court by a real live judge. Still undefeated in real court. Just sayin.
Great job Dartmouth PD. We look forward to more Police Department’s following suit and publicly shaming bad guys. Not only is it a great way to catch bad guys, it humanizes the cops and uses the fear of public embarrassment to deter criminal behavior.
