Angry about late fees?

via bpdnews.com



At about 3:29pm, on Sunday, April 1, 2007, officers from District C-6 (South Boston) responded to a radio call for a robbery in progress at the Blockbuster Video Store on Old Colony Avenue. A description of the suspect (a 5’6” white male with blonde hair, wearing a black hat, black sweater, jeans) was broadcast over Channel 6 of the police radio. According to witnesses, the suspect entered the store, grabbed a bunch of videos (approx. 8 – 10) and then took off out of the store. Officers then located an individual fitting the above description sitting on the stairs inside the Old Colony Housing Development. The suspect was then brought back to the Blockbuster where he was positively identified. Officers then arrested Kxxxx Cxxxxx, 19, of South Boston and charged him with Larceny (under $250.00.


Not the first time the words 'ripping off' and 'Blockbuster' were in a sentence together, but usually the sentence diagram looks a little different.

So how does the Boston Police define a 'Movie Buff"? I have a call into investigators to see which films were 'ripped off'.

If the films were French New Wave, then it fits. Early Scorsese, definitely. Remake of a Japanese horror film, well... But if the films starred a lesser Baldwin, promised to bring the 'Van Dammage', or had the word 'Momma' in the title - I'd be worried about the judgment of our local police force.

You could also include suck titles as "From Dusk till the time just before 10am" or "White Girls who are Really Black Guys" or and movie starring Pauly Washed Up on the Beach.
