The more I think about it, I would rather have a family BBQ raided by a SWAT team than to actually sit through the entire BBQ. A far better story.

What's ridiculous is this bullshit poll on the newspaper site.

Maybe the link lead you somewhere else. The poll I got was about whether you thought pagan police officers should get their holy days off from work.

43% say no, it's ridiculous.

I think they should get them off but they should also get made fun of for it.

That really would be the best of all possible worlds.

Weird.

As for that poll... how about everyone just gets some number of (paid?) days off, and they can take them whenever they want for whatever holidays they want.

Except that businesses and whatnot close on Christmas, thus there is no way for people to work on that day, so everyone has to have it off. Not that this applies to police officers, since they don't "close" but in some sense they should, since there are days where there is more crime and days where there is less. I'm sure that crime rates and injury rates increase on Halloween as they do on the Fourth of July and St. Patrick's Day. You want more people working then, not less.

Look, police officers have to work on Halloween because that's when a lot of hooligans do stupid things. Just like firefighters have to work on Christmas Eve because a lot of Christmas trees tend to catch fire then.

There's a whole ER episode about Halloween being weird and dangerous.

Halloween is mentioned specifically, but we're looking at 8 days in total. Seven of them aren't Halloween.

"Policemen shouldn't get any specific guaranteed days off" is certainly a valid stance.

So how about those douchebags who decided a BBQ was a rave?
