Take Candy From Strangers, Kids! 

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Earlier this month, the Boston Police Department began a new operation, dubbed “Hoodsie Cup“. To quote their press release:

Boston Police officers…will operate a Hood Ice Cream truck and hand deliver Hoodsie Cups to kids in pre-determined areas of the city. This one-on-one contact and trust-building approach will create new channels for communication between the police and youth in each of Boston’s neighborhoods.

To summarize, the police will be driving an ice cream truck around, luring kids to their van with sweets.

Oh, and if you were hoping to find iPhone wallpaper featuring multi-ethnic cartoon children enjoying ice cream, you need look no further.
