The 26-year-old began lining up the powdered drugs on the roof of the car in a disco car park, when the two police officers surprised him, a Nuremberg police spokesman said on Tuesday.
The man had no idea the normal looking vehicle belonged to the police, and it was coincidence that the officers — who were walking by their parked car — discovered him just as he was about to take the drugs.
“He’s got horrible luck,” said Bert Rauenbusch, police spokesman in the southern German city.
I love this story. That was pulled, verbatim from Reuters. I want to post it on about 100 other sites I manage, but it is too vulgar, so… it goes into my catch all blog… which is here at Arcade. It is like a fake Onion news article.
The story has reawakened a German wanderlust. I was once in the US Army, and stationed in Wertheim Germany, at Peden Barracks. I was lucky enough to be in Germany during the end of the Cold War, and was visiting Berlin when the Fall of the Wall concert was performed. Pink Floyd, The Scorpions, Van Morrison, Sinead O’Connor (she was AMAZING). I was polluted, but Sinead, and a younger, healthier Van Morrison were great.
I think you can do almost anything in Berlin, and it can be shrugged off as “bad luck,” when you get caught.
The Berlin police spokesman has empathy for the lunatic cokehead, I’m sorry, meth-head. He says “he has horrible luck.” I am willing to wager that Bert has also been on a ridiculous, filthy, coke binge. How else can you sympathize with a man that is snorting cocaine off of a police car? The man must have been awake for 2 days.
I will never, or at least try to never, condone doing hard drugs, or really even breaking the law. As an adult, I have a greater awareness of how stupid actions create chaos and nonsense that should be avoided at all costs. I will say this, if you must do drugs, you want to be arrested by a police department, like Berlin’s. The spokesman, Bert Rauenbusch doesn’t want to arrest you.
If you were in the military, and stationed in Germany, I just created a group on FF911.org, so please join. I would love to see some pictures from the late 80’s. They are pretty hard to come by. We take technology for granted, it is so easy to take digital pictures, and share them online in an instant. Now we have to scan in our old “photo’s” and post them. On that site a friend from the Army just emailed me a funny picture of me on the toilet.
All this reminiscing is making me crave an Octoberfest holiday…
