The Ingleside Police Station Newsletter contained this interesting piece of information yesterday:
0:11 pm Arleta and San Bruno AvenuesA posse? First off, how does one go about rounding up a posse? Was there a group of rascally, but ultimately noble, ne'er-do-wells whittling and spitting in the dirt outside the nearby saloon? How many people consitute a posse? Can women be in a posse? How does one politely decline a police officer's offer to join a posse without looking like a total wuss? How often does the SFPD employ posses in the apprehension of criminals? And, most importantly, how do I get into a posse? -Andy Wright
