It's always awesome whenever cops have a sense of humor. Truly shows that they are just like you and I when it comes to the job -- which is refreshing to see due to the negativity and stigmas around law enforcement lately.
Maybe it's because cops are such intimidating figures, and seeing those blue and red lights behind you when you're driving is one of the worst feelings in the world, but when they remind the world that they're people with a sense of humor, it feels pretty darn good.
Which might be why the Tecumseh, Oklahoma Police Department's post about a hilarious way to crack down on crystal meth is so great. They probably should give this social media intern a raise.
They're offering free "gluten tests" to citizens who bring in their meth to ensure their illegal narcotics are gluten-free.
Celiac disease is serious business and people afflicted with it can suffer from very painful and dangerous side effects from ingesting gluten. It's a serious problem for those afflicted so to watch for gluten in food is a life or death scenario for people who deal with it. Unfortunately, gluten-free eating has been adopted by hipster foodies just trying to get in on the latest diet trends and is treated as a joke by pretty much everyone, including cops who are trying to bust meth-users.
And if you're crazy enough to try meth, I think that whether or not it's gluten-free would be the least of your problems. Joking aside many rural communities struggle with meth problems. Especially areas of the Central United States. We're assuming some police departments had to get clever to catch people but is it really an ok joke? But if you're tweaking on some crystal, who knows what your thought process is?
