Cops Who Thought Dead Woman on I-90 Was a Deer Making Sure Our Cemeteries Are Safe



The hype and drama machine over at 19 Action News reported on the Cleveland police officers who mistook a dead woman's body for a deer carcass. Tracking the squad car's GPS, they showed the cops parked at a cemetery for hours before the call came in and for another hour afterwards. The explanation from a police spokesman? Lots of looting going on at that cemetery. Lots of thiefs looking for scrap metal. Cops were just making sure the burial ground was safe.

In other news, it's still news when cops park for hours on end and don't do anything.
