Ross dou­ble’s pure com­edy

Sunday Mirror - - SAIRAKHAN -

Good on Black­pool po­lice for re­al­is­ing that so­cial me­dia can be their friend. I loved the re­ponse to the photo they posted on Face­book of a thief walk­ing out of a restau­rant clutch­ing a crate of beer. The good old Bri­tish pub­lic took one look and promptly iden­ti­fied Ross from Friends – AKA Amer­i­can ac­tor David Sch­wim­mer. One wag wrote: “I don’t think it’s been this guy’s day, his week, his month or even his year.” But the ic­ing on the cake was when Sch­wim­mer posted his own spoof of the crime. Some killjoys grum­ble that the po­lice should have bet­ter things to do than mess about on so­cial me­dia. But I think they’re like any other or­gan­i­sa­tions that need to find new ways of reach­ing their com­mu­ni­ties. If so­cial me­dia breaks down bar­ri­ers and catches a few crooks in the process, I’m all for the laugh­ing po­lice­man.
