Sheboygan's Odd, Addictive Police Scanner Chatter
As chronicled on this site, Sheboygan is quite the colorful city. More evidence of that fact comes today courtesy of Jon Hendren, a writer who helms the "Twitter Tuesday" feature at SomethingAwful. Hendren has compiled a wonderful compendium of shocking, head-scratching and just plain zen tweets from @sheboyganscan, an anonymous Good Samaritan who monitors the police scanner in Sheboygan.
Sheboyganscan, who did not respond to a request to comment, must enjoy immense job satisfaction given what's broadcast over the airwaves in this Wisconsin burg. With a dry wit and an eye for the absurd, the writer reveals the crime-and raccoon-infested underbelly of Sheboygan bit by lovely bit. The city seems locked in a state of surreal emergency; below, find some of the more unusual calls for police assistance in the past few weeks. (Big hat tip for finding this guy goes to Hendren. Follow him.)
