Cloverdale's Police Department knows how upset our village's children get when given something healthy in their trick or treat bags on Halloween. Last year five Cloverdale children were arrested for torching the car of a person who rewarded their heartfelt and enthusiastic "TRICK OR TREAT" with small boxes of raisins. The children were stupid enough to capture their TRICK on film.
"There are other ways to express outrage," the Chief Constable said while making the rounds at the villiage's schools. "Have you considered smashing pumpkins on driveways or soaping windows?"
"What would you do if someone gave you a toothbrush?" asked one sixth grader from Confederacy Elementary.
The Chief Constable thought long and hard then raised his forefinger. "That's unforgivable. You all call me if you get a toothbrush in your Halloween bag and I'll be down in a flash with my Tazer!"
Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!
