And if you look at the mug shot of the female suspect who got arrested for having sex in a city park, you will understand why.

These cops needed this image burned into their minds like a fish needs a bicycle.


Around 4 p.m. yesterday, the bicycle cops were finishing up their daily ride in Naylor’s Run Park. They had passed by the kids on swings and the people on the tennis courts and then they rode up to the baseball diamond, where they were startled by a man and woman who were participating in a different kind of aerobic activity, Chitwood said. “There they are, on the first base line. There’s a bench, she is bent over the bench and our friend is behind her with his pants down to his ankle,” Chitwood said, “banging away.” Mind you, it was 92 degrees and 4 o’clock in the afternoon when the cops rolled up on this. Chitwood said there was no one else around before police startled the couple, but as they were arresting them, a teenager did walk by, receiving lessons in both anatomy and criminal justice. Chitwood identified the couple as Jennifer Harvey, 41, of Clifton Heights, and Richard McBride, 37, of North Philadelphia. “They don’t have parks in Philadelphia?” Chitwood said. “They have parks. Stay over there.” Chitwood said he didn’t know if the two were dating but he said police don’t suspect prostitution.

Boy, I’ll say.

I’d upload Ms. Harvey’s picture, but I don’t want to mess with the aesthetic sensibilities of the readers (or make people lose their appetites).
