Fort Collins cops’ FB page is jumping with fish puns

Reporters spend a lot of time writing about the crimes of cops: excessive force, homicides and other miscarriages of justice. The Fort Collins police have engaged in another type of misconduct: puns — fish puns.

Apparently, the FCPD recovered a stuffed marlin that had been jacked from Fuzzy’s Taco shop, which sparked a school of fish puns on the department’s Facebook page.

Clearly, the Department is fishing for laughs, but the net worth of these antics is unclear. Some argue they make cops seem more approachable, human and community oriented. Others say they’re tasteless and a waste of tax dollars. 

Pardon the pun, but how do you sea it? Throw us a line.

    We hear of the angry violent cops all too frequently BUT what % of the total do they represent. Cops having a giggle might in fact place some humanity on those who hate. Cops like so many others, take themselves too seriously so I’m all for the hooting from Fort Collins.
