Meet Russell George. Russell was driving Stott Street one Sunday night last year, when he noticed a police van driving fast and recklessly.
The van was swerving and turned into oncoming traffic.

“At this point I was concerned about the safety of other road users,” self-employed George told The Witness.

“He suddenly jammed on his brakes and came to a complete stop.”

“I got out of my car and went towards him and I asked him if he knew what he was doing. He started his car and carried on driving,” he said.

Continuing to drive recklessly, the policeman turned into Logan Road and came to a stop at the Howard Road intersection.
George decided it would be best to call the police. He was told the police would be there shortly.

“After five minutes, no one had arrived. So I jumped out of my car and I approached the driver’s side and asked him to come out. He looked at me and I could smell that he had been drinking.

“I asked him again, and he refused.

“I then grabbed his keys, pulled him out and locked him in the back of his own van,” George said.

He added that the police van was badly damaged, as if it had been involved in an accident.
Witnesses said that the officer who’d been locked in the back of the van began crying.

This is truly something which is unheard of. I have never seen any citizen arresting any cop especially for DUI. Now I am wondering if cop is going to hire a DUI lawyer, winning acquittal for police officer would be cake walk for him or it won’t be.

Heh, hilarious.

Both the OP and the bot.

Someday they'll start participating productively in the conversation, and we'll wonder what we ever did without them :)

“I don’t understand.”¯ wrote Becky. Why did you ban Gabriel?”¯ Becky had been on the forum for almost a year, and she was one of the most frequent posters. Rachel thought Becky was a bit like her when she was thirteen, nattering on about internet stars and how she had found the meaning of life in the movies she was watching.

“Becky.”¯ Typed Rachel “I had to ban him. I’m sorry. He was a bot, a spider, a program. He wasn’t human.”¯ Becky’s green words glowed on her screen almost immediately.

“He talked to me! Every day! What do you mean he wasn’t human?”¯

Rachel exhaled; this was going to be tough. “Didn’t you notice he kept trying to get you to buy games?”¯

“I like buying games! Who cares? I really liked Gabriel. You two were the only people on this forum I could talk to.”¯ Becky sent a little picture of herself along with the message, her soft little face wrapped in an over exaggerated frown. Rachel has seen her face before. Becky used to have a picture of herself on her profile, a badly lit angled shot of her freckled face. Rachel had made her change the picture, she was always careful about the kids on her forums. She was afraid the picture would make Becky a target for perverts. Now Becky had a picture of a cartoon panda bear as her profile picture.

Rachel pulled the keyboard into her lap. “Becky, Gabriel is not a person.”¯

“You don’t know that. Gabriel was my boyfriend! He said he would go out with me last week.”¯

“Becky, honey, he was not your boyfriend. He’s a bot. There are thousands of Gabriel’s on thousands of forums sweetheart. He’s a program, designed to promote games and movies. I’m sorry baby.”¯ There was a long red pause before Rachel got a green response.

“I just want someone to talk to.”¯ Becky lived with her single mom in a little apartment somewhere in the Midwest. With how often she was online, Rachel though it was pretty obvious that Becky didn’t have many meat-space friends.

“Oh Becky. I know it’s lonely sometimes, but you should have real people to talk to. I’ll talk to you.”¯

“How do you know Gabriel is a bot?”¯

Rachel thought for a minute, trying to translate the code into something that would make sense to a thirteen year old that had never even seen a programming language. “Becky, everyone’s got little signatures under their addresses. Bots get launched by the same signature, a hundred operations happening on one name. If that’s going on, you can just send them a little code and-“¯ Rachel zapped the code over to Becky to show her. “-the bot shuts down and has to reboot.”¯

“Becky?”¯ She paused and went into the code. “Oh God.”¯ Rachel pushed away from her workstation and put her hands on her head. “Shit.”¯ Rachel stood up and walked away from her computer to find some sunshine.

More important facts of that story:

1) it happened in South Africa
2) the same police officer drew a gun on his girlfriend in a nightclub earlier in that evening, which apparently only merits a throwaway line

365tomorrows can be amazing, I must have read more than a thousand stories there already.

More important facts of that story:

1) it happened in South Africa
2) the same police officer drew a gun on his girlfriend in a nightclub earlier in that evening, which apparently only merits a throwaway line

Huh, South African citizens are braver than you'd expect from a country with a history of power abuse.

This is my first post. I am not a bot. Well, actually, I am in a way, I'm from England. Everyone in the UK has bot like tendencies. Especially people who work in supermarkets. Total bot carnage. Terrifying. Do you have a clubcard sir? (Vacant, dead eyes). Big luv xx
