Nice Move

I’m at a loss for words right now due to sheer excitement. Police live tweeting a prostitution sting!?! THIS IS MY DREAM! Not only will I get to watch hookers and/or creepy Johns get busted by the cops, but also I’ll learn how to identify and avoid police when soliciting a prostitute! other stuff. This live tweeting of a prostitution sting is going to be one of the greatest nights in the history of Twitter. Hopefully the Prince George County PD, of Prince George County, Maryland, have their Vine accounts fired up and ready, as well. I need video.

Yes, we’ve seen this kind of thing on Cops a million times, but never live. And something about it being broadcast on the Internet just makes it seem so much more unfiltered. So much realer. I cannot wait for this night to come. The Prince George County Police explained their reasoning behind the move, which I will post below, despite not giving a single fuck about why they’re doing this, just that they are, in fact, going to live tweet arresting hookers and men haggling up from a squeezer, all for my entertainment.

“We’re using this progressive, and what we believe unprecedented, social media tactic to warn any potential participants that this type of criminal behavior is not welcome in Prince George’s County,” a news release says.

Police say the photos of suspects and information will be tweeted as the sting happens.

The Prince George County PD won’t be more specific about when or where they will be conducting the sting other than saying it will be next week, and within the borders of Prince George County.

We won’t tell you when or where, other than it’s somewhere in the county sometime next week. The PGPD’s Vice Unit will conduct a prostitution sting that targets those soliciting prostitutes and we’ll tweet it out as it happens. From the ads to the arrests, we’ll show you how the PGPD is battling the oldest profession. Suspect photos and information will be tweeted.

I will die a happy man if the sting goes ANYTHING like this:

To follow the sting next week, follow the Prince George PD at @PGPDNews, the account they will be tweeting from, as well as the hashtag #PGPDVice.

This is going to be fantastic.
