Re: Indeed

I meant exactly what I wrote. I didn't click the link. The article clearly states "You can view video of the outrage", so it's pretty obvious what's going to be seen without having to follow it.

Caugh and drop

Maybe he had his tackle out to do a "cough and drop" but got confused and urinated as well.

So close!

"Police say anyone who recognises the phantom pisser can call their crimeline on 1-800-423-TIPS."

Just one digit different from 1-800-423-PISS

Not at all, not at all; it was posted in Bootnotes... ...um, and I cannot resist noting that he could probably fill his own boots too.

"Why indeed, when Walgreens is famous for its extensive of goods, from cosmetics and pharmacueticals to general hardware."

WTF is that cop saying?

That makes very little sense, if it's a direct quote that is very worrying. His reports must take ages to read!

Identifying...

FFS, the guy tried to pick up a prescription. IDing him shouldn't be _that_ hard....

The title is required... and all that blather...

@Alan Brown - FFS, the guy tried to pick up a prescription. IDing him shouldn't be _that_ hard....

It could be _that_ hard if the prescriptions were forged... the local Wally*World busted two women trying to fill forged prescriptions in the past week...I believe both were for "controlled substances", i.e., narcotics or something similar...

I can't think of many reasons to get a prescription for an "uncontrolled substance", those are called over the counter medicines for a reason.

"I can't think of many reasons to get a prescription for an "uncontrolled substance", those are called over the counter medicines for a reason."

um no . Try again. Controlled substances are usual CII-CV drugs in the US, Some over the counter drugs such as certain cough meds are controlled substance and require you to be over 18 to buy. Controlled substances almost always refers to narcotics or drugs that can get you high in the US. Exceptions are drugs like anabolic steroids.

try going down to the Walgreens and urinating on the cough drops.
