This is what comes from the fact that I don’t watch late night TV shows. If I did, I would have seen Jimmy Fallon praise Lt. Clay Higgins of St. Landry Parish, Louisiana. Lt. Higgins is awesome. Every week, he does a little crime stoppers video for the local news station, describing the crime (usually property crimes), speaking on behalf of the good people or businesses who were victimized, and getting in touch with the bad guys, reminding them that they hurt someone and that an unpleasant future awaits them. This is a perfect example:
On Saturday, March 14th, a portable generator was stolen from this carport, located on Willie Young Rd., in Eunice.
It was a small Coleman Powermate generator, about 10 years old, with a red frame, valued at around 900 dollars. A small generator, but to us, a serious crime. Evidence shows that the thief came right onto the carport, removed the tarp that covered the generator and fled the scene.
If you know anything about this theft, or if you saw something suspicious on Willie Young Rd., call us.
If you’re the one who stole this mans generator, pay attention, I’m talking to you now… the man you stole from is well known in these parts, he’s a kind, generous man. If you needed his help, you could’ve asked, but now, we won’t stop looking for you. . . . and if you return to this man’s home to steal again . . . have your affairs in order.
I am awed. Truly awed.
