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.
Here was the windfall recovered by the NYPD.
And here was the mocking Twitter reaction.

Wow, real bang-up job guys. What's that $100 and maybe three ounces of pot? I'm sure the Sinaloa cartel will be outta business any day now.— Andrew M (@VomitingBrain1) July 28, 2017

It was probably some millennial dealer that accepts venmo payments— just some random guy (@ArtiePodcast) July 29, 2017
thank god you got that blood money off the street before they made enough for a monthly metrocard— David Hill (@davehill77) July 29, 2017
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.
