    Are all of these guys choking backyard- or farm-raised chickens?

  • wank detective

    Hmm isn’t that near Barton House? I could have sworn we know someone who lives at Barton House.

  • Elmer

    Waiting for the first commentator to tell us that “indecent exposure” is a victimless crime.

  • Electricbill

    It looks like most of the crime is happening in North Arlington.

    • Aaron

      I can’t speak for all of North Arlington, obviously, but I think most of us would be willing to cede the area around Ballston Metro to you guys in exchange for a neighborhood to be named at a later date.

  • SST

    Entered a residence through an unlocked rear door.

  • Hank

    I’m confused by the hallway beat crime… why is the witness to this gentleman’s act of self-love called the victim? Isn’t the masturbator actually the victim to the female perpetrator’s voyeurism? What a sicko!

  • Id

    The guy was just demonstrating Arlington’s penal code regarding exposure.

  • Sean

    So is the first crime a car jacking?
