Tweet of the Day: Portland police have fun at Rockets’ expense

Apr 21, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT


That is the official Portland Police Department twitter account, which is normally dedicated to the important work of the PD — major arrests, found pipe bombs, things of that nature.

But they couldn’t help but take a little dig at Houston after the Trail Blazers came from 11 down in the fourth quarter to steal Game 1 of their playoff series.

There has got to be a Jail Blazers joke in here that I’m missing, right?

    Go arrest somebody for J walking or something…

      We get mad at the police, etc. for taking themselves too seriously. But when they do little fun things like this, we get “go arrest someone”. Leave them alone and go back to work or something.

    You misspelled “bong” as “pipe bomb.”

    F^(k the Police!

    Quit watching basketball and tweeting and get your ar$e back to work!

    And by that I don’t mean go out and arrest the homeless! Go fight some real crime, you clowns!

      I’m fairly confident that Portland PD doesn’t have an actual cop sitting there composing tweets. Some scrub intern is doing the dirty work.

        I’m fairly confident he doesn’t believe the Chief of Police is actually tweeting…..Why is everybody so serious today?…

        Clearly the Portland Police Department gave the entire force the night off to watch the basketball game and tweet about it.

        With mandatory arrests of pot smokers and jay walkers during the commercial breaks.

        And since it was Portland, they were all having LOCAL chicken dinners.

    How about, “Slow night in Rip City. Only reported crime is on the Trailblazers for ridin dirty over the Rockets. Too bad it’s out of our jurisdiction.”

    They’ve come a long way from when they were the “JailBlazers”.

    There was a theft and somebody got PAID !!! That officiating was ATROCIOUS….So much so, the league

    had to release an official statement about the bed call against D12, with 10.8 seconds left and down 1 point.

    So, instead of him shooting (even if we know he would have missed them)….Portland shot free throws and increased their lead.

    Where is Tim Donaghy and Joey Crawford when you need them.
