The Wild Wild G-West: Statement from the Policed

It would be remiss for the public not to receive a statement from both The Police and The Policed regarding the incident that unfolded somewhere in the west of our capital city.

The Police have not said anything yet. This column is the unofficial mouthpiece of The Policed and represents the community angle basically because I have a slot in a newspaper column and not because of any powers vested on me by the community. I am debunking the myth that press conferences/releases are always conducted by bulky men with more chins than a Chinese phonebook. Here I am trying to give you a blow by blow account or if you like a shot by shot account of what happened.

I was not at the scene but pieced together information garnered from very suspect and unreliable sources. My sources ranged from Facebook posts, Phase 2 residents, airtime vendors, Phase 2 mealies sellers, students and neighborhood cats. As a pseudo-journalist I too have the responsibility to report on things that happened no matter how unreliable my sources are. With a veil of silence enveloping all the Police precincts I remain your only hope. In short you are stuck with me here. So buckle up and enjoy the ride. Growing up we used to watch movies of Western gunslingers take over cities and towns using the might of the gun.
