At the Canadian Police Station in Kensington, the officers there have a little different idea of what to do with drunk drivers than other places, and the punishment sound cruel and unusual.
The Police Department in this small town on Prince Edward Island absolutely do not want you to have anything to drink and drive a vehicle but the Chief made a recent statement on Facebook saying:
“The Kensington Police Service will be out for the remainder of year looking for those dumb enough to feel they can drink and drive. And when we catch you, and we will catch you, on top of a hefty fine, a criminal charge and a year’s driving suspension we will also provide you with a bonus gift of playing the office’s copy of Nickelback in the cruiser on the way to jail. Now, now, no need to thank us, we figure if you are foolish enough to get behind the wheel after drinking then a little Chad Kroeger and the boys is the perfect gift for you. So please, let’s not ruin a perfectly good unopened copy of Nickelback. You don’t drink and drive, and we won’t make you listen to it.”
It is a sick world we live in when we can’t even trust our local police department to not inflict disgusting and torturous punishments on us, even IF we are breaking the law. There must be some sort of rule that makes this against the Geneva Convention.
To make matters even more sinister, Nickelback got upset and the chief had to take the posting down, apologize for offending the band, and then explain how they don’t take drinking and driving lightly.
In my mind, with that type of threat, I figured they took drinking and driving VERY seriously but I guess there are some people out there who like that kind of sadistic torture. I am shaking my head right now at the state of the world and assuming that Kensington, Canada has zero cases of drinking and driving.
Well played sir.
