Big shock that they were tracked to one of the nastiest dwellings on the Berlin Turnpike.

As avid Gum chewers we are disturbed that the serious illness of "gummerea" is mocked by the WH police! Did it realy take a CPT Larata to crack this case?
Was it worth it? These people need treatment not arrests! But it is good to see that since they have now hit bottom, arrested by a very bored police department, they will get the help they need!

There they were, enjoying their gum, when "whammo" the cops rush in and burst their bubbles! If it was the SWAT team, they may have had a bazooka! The pair are now in a sticky situation, and will probably be in stir for a long stretch! I'll stop now,'cause this is starting to...blow...

Intelligent Report: It has been revealed that the mistaken UFO, turned out to be a three man craft made of bubble gum. As soon as the FAA gets more information, the public will be notified. You can depend on your Government.

My name is Chris Dodd, and I am outraged at the thought of these criminals stealing gum from law abiding citizens.

I will be proposing legislation to make gum theft a felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

I promise you I will continue my fight to keep the citizens of CT and the middle class safe and secure.
