Cop Ask Residents To Behave Until Heat PassesJul


The Police Braintree, Massachusetts tried a different approach to preventing crime over the weekend. They asked residents “to hold off” on committing crimes until the heatwave passes.“Folks. Due to the extreme heat, we are asking anyone thinking of doing criminal activity to hold off until Monday,” the Braintree Police Department wrote on Facebook. “It is straight-up hot as soccer balls out there. Conducting criminal activity, in this extreme heat is next level henchmen status, and also very dangerous.”

The heat was criminal enough. The National Weather Service issued an excessive heat warning for parts of the eastern United States, including Braintree in eastern Massachusetts. Temperatures were in the upper 90’s with the heat index making it feel as hot as 115 degrees at times.

  • And because they care, the police department offered up some suggestions on how to spend your weekend. “Stay home, blast the AC, binge Stranger Things season 3, play with the face app, practice karate in your basement,” they noted. “We will all meet again on Monday when it’s cooler.”
  • Their post has since been taken down on their Facebook page.
