Late in the afternoon before the first debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Officer Drew Fennelly sat down at his console, racking his brains over what to tweet.
The public affairs cop does his best to update the Lawrence, Kansas, Police Department’s Twitter account once a day. The only topic that came to mind, however, was that night’s political dustup, which was set to kick off in three hours.
Inspiration hit, and a legendary tweet was born:
We realize politics can make emotions run high, but being mad at a presidential candidate in a debate is NOT a reason to call 911.
