Comment of the Day: Fight Crime!

Here on Eating Our Words, the commenters absolutely make the blog, and our Comment of the Day honors the best of the bunch.

Every day, we read you guys and pick the commenter, or commenters, who made us laugh, cry, salivate over something delicious, or think about things in a new way.

In return, we offer them a virtual White Russian.

Today Katharine Shilcutt reported on a run-in between Joshua Martinez of The Modular food truck and an HPD officer.

HPDissuchadisaapointment was not pleased:

Meanwhile, in other parts of Houston, real crimes were going down (murder, rape, drug dealing, assault, human trafficking, prostitution etc)...and no one was there. Priorities askew, HPD????? FIGHT CRIME, there's plenty going on...AWAY FROM FOOD VENDORS!!!!Someone trying to make an honest living and you harass them??? SO DISGUSTING, SO SAD....and soooo VERY misguided!!! I think the cop should be written up for not doing his job!!!
