Strange But True

Photos: Strange Valentine's Day cards for Denver cops

The folks at the Denver Police Facebook page have clearly been looking forward to Valentine's Day. Over the past week, page administrators have shared a series of e-cards they encourage friends to send to law enforcers as a way of showing how much they love the work they do. We admit to being a little mystified by the one above. If an officer's unlocking the cuffs of a criminal, isn't he abetting an escape? And if the person in cuffs isn't a scofflaw, what kind of kinky stuff are these cops into? Fortunately, the four additional cards shared here make a little more sense, even if they're equally weird -- and the last one's absolutely hilarious. Check them out below.
