Bizarre Beat

The Bizarre Beat topic gives police officers a place to get news articles of the weird, including the naked protesters, drunks in clown costumes, and all other oddball encounters cops have on the street on a daily basis. The job is deadly serious, but there are dozens of calls for service that leave the responding officers shaking their heads and laughing as they get back into their squads.
