Post Malone's Musical Takeover
Pokémon Go has totally integrated itself into basically every facet of everyday life. Businesses are designing new advertising strategies based on the game. Criminals are using the game to support all their crime related needs. Now, the police in New Hampshire’s largest city are using the Pokémon Go craze to help them apprehend suspects on their ‘Most Wanted’ List.
According to The Guardian, on Saturday night the Manchester Police Department posted a status on their Facebook page advertising a rare Charizard Pokémon waiting to be caught in their booking area. Then those sneaky cops alleged that since Charizard is so special they would be resorting to a VIP-type Pokémon Go situation, where only a few “lucky” players would be invited. Check out the post from the cops below!

Unfortunately for Manchester PD’s “lucky” players, they’re actually not that lucky. The list of selected individuals was really Manchester’s ‘Wanted Persons’ list, and there was never even a Charizard.
Unfortunately for Manchester’s comedic police force, catching Pokémon is way easier than catching suspects. Maybe hardened criminals aren’t really the type to run around ignorant of their surroundings in search of ’90’s cartoons, but who really knows. Sargent Eric Knight told the Associated Press that their Pokémon Go experiment hasn’t led to any arrests. Clearly, these cops underestimated the power of the internet’s golden rule: pics or it didn’t happen. Tough break, man.
How do you feel about this classic case of cop humor? Can cops even be funny? Is this a humorous joke or a misuse of police power? Who set a better trap: Manchester PD playing Pokémon Go or Texas Police catching suspects with a fake PSA claiming their area’s Meth has Ebola? What pop culture craze will the police latch onto next? Only time and TMZ will tell.
