Denver Post crime staff shorthanded, wants thugs to take it easy this week

A short time ago, John Ingold, a courts and crime reporter for the Denver Post, used his Twitter account to make a hilarious request of scofflaws in the immediate area.

The gist: The paper's crime staff is shorthanded right now, so if you're planning something big, could you postpone it for a few days? Here's the tweet in question:

Will criminals heed this plea? Or will those law-breakers who crave publicity be just as happy to be spotlighted on TV? Only time will tell -- but for the sake of potential victims, law enforcers and the citizenry as a whole, not to mention the Post staff, let's hope you bad boys and girls out there will give it a rest for a while.
