BLOTTER-IFFIC

Kudos to Karen Lewis at the Herald Democrat in Sherman. She may not know how much entertainment I get out the police blotter she produces. “Entertainment” may be misleading; some of the acts described are horrible and/or despicable. But sprinkled in their telling are some fantastic English sentences, with context or without. For instance:

“…When he entered the unlocked house, he saw the suspect sliding across the kitchen floor on his rear.”

“…He said that the suspect was the mother of his 1-year-old daughter and that she was upset with his decision to see a new girlfriend.”

“A man with serious head injuries said that his girlfriend had struck him with a hammer, this in the 2400 block of Texoma Parkway on July 2.”

“On June 30, Sherman Police Officer Ryan Hapiuk spoke to the victim, who said that the sister and cousin of the father of her 2-year-old child forced their way into her house and beat her. She told them she recently had surgery, and had no wish to fight them. She told them so, she said, but they entered the house and beat her, telling her not to call the child’s father anymore.”

“The man then remembered he left a spare key in the middle compartment, but thought he left it at home earlier…”
