The New York Police Department arrested alleged gang members late last week, seized drugs and cash in the process, and then proudly posted its findings to Twitter to show that officers were keeping the streets safe. And then Twitter absolutely lit them up.

So, Twitter certainly wasn’t impressed. But hey, at least Queens was just a little bit safer without those three bags of weed in the streets.
