cop with cat

*You say what you wanna say: sometimes all a man needs is a little pussy.

(I still remember the day my 14-year-old face met the backside of my mother’s hand for using the word “pussy,” albeit in a different context, so I’m going to enjoy using it here!)

A recent routine traffic stop in San Francisco resulted in the driver waiting while the cops ran info on the white Toyota Highlander he was driving without license plates. As the officers learned the car had been stolen, the driver jumped up from the curb and ran inside a building.

The police followed in hot pursuit, resulting in the driver, barefoot and wearing only a pair of black shorts, standing on the ledge of a third-floor window and threatening to jump.

Three hours later, both driver and police were at a standstill, and the cops were waiting for the man’s family members to arrive from across town. (Recruiting family members during suicide attempts, to help talk people figuratively and literally off of ledges, is common practice.) Police had asked family members to bring the man’s cat, Trip, with them.

45 minutes after the pussy’s arrival, police were able to take the man into custody without incident.
