What do you think about this?
The police are busy with a very important criminal investigation…about a ‘threat’ to the Ted Rogers statue. A Blue Jays fan, Nicholas Kharshoum tweeted in regards to Jose Bautista‘s contract demands; “F–king pay the man or I’m throwing the Ted Rogers statue in the harbour you pieces of s–t.”
And later, “Swear to f–k that the Ted Rogers statue is getting decimated. F–k Rogers. You don’t know sports. @Rogers @BlueJays.”
Police took the threat seriously enough to show up at Kharshoum’s door. Rogers Communications owns the Jays, and the Rogers statue. They called the cops, who set the ‘cybercrimes’ unit into motion.
It leads a lot of people to raise questions about the legitimacy of this investigation. Such as; is there really nothing else they could be doing with their time- Maybe protecting human beings instead of bronze statues? How many threats to real people receive much less attention? Is an inanimate object that resembles Ted Rogers is evidently more important to Toronto’s law enforcement?
I must confess. I've suggested much worse things be done to the Ted Rogers statue. Just never on Twitter. How's that different?— Chirpy McChirpson (@bluejayschirps) March 13, 2016
