Yesterday, a woman in Orange County called the cops after hearing a noise downstairs. It was probably the sound of her gold-plated dishwasher running, but she suspected it was a burglar.
Okay –- fair enough -– I’m fine with her calling the police for the occasional frivolous incident since she probably paid for the whole police department with the luxury taxes on her nose job.
But here’s when things got a little ridiculous. According to the OC Register, after the police checked out her home, finding no evidence of a break-in, she “requested that the deputies Google Earth her house and keep it on satellite surveillance overnight.”
I’m kind of surprised she hadn’t already bought a hybrid-electric-powered satellite space telescope from Hammacher Schlemmer to watch over her estate. Everyone has one of those.
I guess she presumed that kind of Enemy of the State technology was just a standard government service. I mean, they even get that kind of service in Iran for free. Like, from the CIA.
