Human excrement smeared on police car door handles, a man carrying a snake in Bolton, moved dustbins in Droylsden, damaged windows, bogus callers, harassment in Bury, cows in Atherton. Hard to pick through the flood of information generated by Greater Manchester Police’s one-day-only Twitter feed (will the spoof feeds be done for impersonating a police officer?), but hats (helmets?) off for trying it.
Two things: judging by the RTs and the followers, it’s proved popular, so will it be reprised? In which case, in the same way an ASBO is seen as a badge of honour for some, might it create low-level anti-social behaviour? No doubt you achieve a level of fame if you make GMP’s call sheet.
For now, snake man wins the day.
