BLURB

They cruised the streets looking for trouble. Whether it was to stop it or to cause it, this wasn’t clear. One thing was for sure: heaven help the poor souls who found their way into their clutches. Dressed up as saviours and keepers of the peace, these devils would scour the far reaches of hell to get their kicks. They spotted him, lost and alone and far from his pack. Slightly drunk was he, stumbling along in the dark night, trying to find his way home. Perfect. The “Officers” pulled up. “Good Evening Sir, where are you going?”  He uttered an inaudible drunken mumble but indicated with his index finger which direction he was going. “Sir we’re going to need you to come with us.” the panic filled his eyes and he contemplated running but there was a lot of them. “You’re under arrest for being drunk and disorderly…” As she uttered the rest of the creed, they were salivating and licking their lips whilst dragging him into the car. By morning, all that remained of him was an index finger, found by a hapless dog walker. [Cecilia Garcia]
