Warning: Language (Duh.)
I wrote this in response to a satirical article: JOHN HAGEE CALLS FOR PROSECUTING WOMEN WHO SAY GOD’S NAME DURING INTERCOURSE.
Fuck Police Mission Log 2115.0616
I polish my mirrorshades as my partner pilots our flying police cruiser. The rookie is green, but she’s all right. My badge gleams, sitting heavy on my black leather combat jacket, a constant reminder of our awesome responsibility.
The call comes in, a disturbance in sector twelve.
The rookie puts the cruiser down on the street outside the residence and we get out.
She draws her laser pistol. I go to the trunk and pull out my laser sight equipped drum-fed tri-barrel rotary shotgun.
I unclip my sonic imager and scan the residence. There’s a woman on a bed riding a man for all he’s worth. The waves on the bottom of the scanner indicate conversation. I key the audio.
“Oh God, yes, yes! God, yes! Do it! Harder! Oh God!”
I’ve heard enough.
I kick open the door, shouting, “FREEZE! FUCK POLICE!”
There’s a thud in the bedroom like the man just suddenly threw the woman off his lap onto the floor. Footfalls. Shouting. A nude woman appears in the doorway with a knife. The rookie fires three times burning charred holes into her flesh. She drops to the ground. The man, also naked, runs up with a gauss pistol in his hand. I key the rotary shotgun. The weapon barks and chops him into ground chuck. I let go the firing key of the rotary shotgun and its barrels spin slowly to a halt.
I tap the comm key on my headset and report to Fuck Police HQ: “Two perps eliminated for sexual blasphemy, resisting arrest and attempted murder of Fuck Police personnel.”
We return to the cruiser and take off having done good work.
