(DAVE CHAPELLE) I was scared to call 911 for anything, even if it was a fire, because they tape those phone calls. I see the shows; they tape them and then they play them on television. That’s fucked up. I’ll say anything if I’m scared—that shit is private. What if I get killed? They start playing that 911 tape on the news, I’m dead, I can’t explain myself to my buddies. “Hi Bob. We just got hold of a copy of Dave Chapelle’s frantic 911 emergency call. Remember, viewers, some of this language is disturbing.” “Hallo, emergency?” “Help! Help, motherfucker, they’re coming to get me! “Just calm down, sir, where are you?” “Oh, I just shit on myself. I can’t stop crying…” They’d play that 30, 40 times a day. All my buddies would be at my funeral, looking at me: “You know Dave shit on himself right before the end?” “Saw it on the news. Died crying like a bitch.”
sprang to mind when I read this:
Police have released a CCTV image of a thief who was seen crying in the street after he dropped cash he had stolen from a Buckinghamshire shop.

Two men targeted the One Stop Shop in Bradwell Common in Milton Keynes on the morning of 6 May. One of the men was holding £7,000 stolen from the safe, but dropped large quantities of it when he was chased by members of the public.

The man was seen walking along the street crying shortly afterwards. [BBC]

Ah gosh. That is really sad. Maybe it shouldn't be, I don't know, but it seems sad to me.

It kind of is, which is why it’s one thing to have your mug plastered all over the news as “DARING ARMED ROBBER STEALS MILLIONS, FLEES COUNTRY” but quite another if you’re known as “man who dropped stolen money and cried”.

It makes me think that sometimes maybe the reasons someone would steal money like that are reasons that'd drive a person, a supposedly brave, criminal person, to cry. Ach. Horrible.

Also, how long until Paterson Joseph helps police with their enquiries?

And another picture of Paterson Joseph, since that one seems to have disappeared down the memory hole:

Ooh, that's right behind my old comics shop. Never went there in the morning though, officer.
