The green police, they come to me in my bed

Dude gets busted by the La Crosse department for drinking underage. The evidence? Facebook pictures.

“I feel like it is shady police work and a waste of taxpayer money to have him (an officer) sit on the computer on Facebook when he could actually be doing police work,” said Luebker.

On the contrary, Mr. Luebker. The taxpayers of La Crosse got themselves a few hundred bucks for the cost of a cop sitting down for an hour at the computer.

That is an efficient use of the taxpayer's money.

And, hey: a guy operating a computer consumes less energy and has a smaller carbon footprint than a guy driving around in a police car.  It's Green Policing!

The kids at UW should like that a whole bunch.
