What Are You Drinking?

A prank like this could easily be considered controversial. There are much more serious issues than someone pretending to be drinking alcohol in public. A few people pranking police just for amusement can seem extremely foolish.

It’s time to ask yourself this burning question…do you condone that kind of behavior or do you disapprove?

From a viewer’s point of view, it seems really disrespectful. For obvious reasons people aren’t the biggest fans of the police officers, but even so, their duty is to serve and protect. Why do something that keeps them from handling important matters?

Let’s say, for example, that a shooting was called in immediately but they were dealing with those turkeys.  How stupid do you think they would feel knowing they stopped an officer from preventing a dangerous event?

My opinion is very clear, but I really want to know yours. Check out the video above and let us know what you think in the comments below! Do you think it could be considered funny or do you think what they;re doing is downright ridiculous?

    I will assume that if the officers are walking a beat, then their particular job that day is to watch for things like this. If they were in a car patrolling, then handling a shooting would be their job. If someone started shooting in their vicinity, I’m sure their instincts would kick in and they would go running towards the more dangerous threat.

    The point is moot because there was no serious emergency happening at that exact moment. It was all in good fun. Lighten up.

    What they are doing is funny and not a big deal. They are not calling police and taking them off of their route to go waste their time, they are walking past cops who are just standing in stores or walking down the street. They aren’t doing anything but making people laugh, which is important when everyone takes everything too seriously (cough).
