The signs of summer are all around us - swarming mosquitos, tourist gridlock, sunburn, flip-flop odor...
and cops without pants.
Hey, it's cheaper than air conditioning... doesn't require dry-cleaning and might even encourage overweight officers to shed a few pounds.
According to a UPI article, "The Baltimore Police announced that it has run out of police-issue pants in sizes 36 and 38."
Said Troy Harris, a Baltimore police spokesman, "We're putting in an emergency order for those two sizes."
No word on what the pant-less officers are up to. Let's hope they're not patrolling Charm City in the buff. That's a Mason-Dixon line we all don't have to cross. One can hope.
