100 Word Story – Police Blotter – Trespassers
Now THIS is exactly the kind of police blotter reporting I absolutely love that gets reported in the Burlingame Police Blotter. Pure perfection. Enjoy!
By Grant Baciocco
“How dare they!”
“The nerve. The absolute nerve!”
“Don’t they know this is our parking lot? Who do they think they are?!”
“Go say something!”
“I’m not going anywhere near them. Disgusting!”
“We need to get to our car.”
“We’ll wait them out.”
“But they’re eating, they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.”
“I tell you Agnes, this neighborhood is going downhill fast. When there’s an absolute disregard for public property, that’s the first sign of the fall.”
“I’m calling the police!
“I thought you called them when you saw them walking by earlier.”
“I did. But I’m calling them again!”
Park Road and Howard Avenue, 4:54 p.m. April 22 Ducks reported to be walking through a parking lot were still there when police responded. Eating bread.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the police blotter stories I’ve written and posted here and I think the new goal with them is to get to where I’ve written 100 of them and then collect them all into a book tentatively titled: 100, 100 Word Crimes in Burlingame. Or something. I’ll try and find a publisher for it and, if not, just release it myself.
One of these days, I’ll have to go through and see how many I have. I don’t think I’m at 100 yet. May not even be over 50, but it’s a fun goal to work towards.
