COLLEGE PARK – The University of Maryland Police Department has been lauded for finally doing something right.

Last Sunday, the UMPD arrested a student for threatening a shooting rampage on campus. The shooting was allegedly planned for this past Monday, but the UMPD uncharacteristically foiled the plot the night before it was to happen. There were no scandals, unnecessary beatings, blaming of the wrong people, ineffectual posturing, inefficiency or any misallocation of funds or other resources whatsoever.
“I’m just s-so proud of my g-guys,” sniffed Police Chief David Mitchell through tears. “Through adversity, through doubt, they j-just n-never quit. They j-just knew, one day we’d g-get it right.”
It was termed “A Halloween gone terribly wrong” by University of Maryland Police Chief David Mitchell. It was certainly a Halloween tale for the ages.
“I would call it irrational exuberance,” said University President Wallace Loh.
By Halloween night, President Loh, long a deep thinker, had settled on the costume he thought was scarier than any other – an underage student drinking Natural Light beer. According to his wife, Barbara, he would not stop “giggling” as he put it on. It was after he glued a Natural Light beer can to his cuff that Loh caught sight of himself in the mirror, and quickly lost touch with reality.
