Be the Grand Prairie Police Department’s Friend!

From the Houston Chronicle (via the great Grits for Breakfast) comes word that the Grand Prairie PD has set up its own MySpace page for recruitment purposes. I’m on record as being a fan of the social networking site, so the fact that said page exists doesn’t bother me. As for the page itself, Grits’ Scott Henson rightly notes that it wasn’t the best idea for the department to post photos of its officers wearing masks (bringing to mind the outlaw culture of the old “Tulia-style drug task forces”). Me? I’m more concerned about the page’s apparent theme song: Nickelback’s “If Everyone Cared.” Ugh. Also, the rotating smiley face in the “mood” section seems a bit flippant. At least give it an eye patch or something.

Update: I’m a moron. Eric already got there, even with the same Nickelback joke. Off my game today. I think it’s because I accidentally shaved off my beard.
