I'm not even sure what to say about this.

Man robbed buying crack calls cops who arrest him
Wire Reports
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - An East
Hartford man called police to report he had been robbed while trying to buy
crack cocaine. Max Minnefield called police Monday to tell them he had paid a man
and a woman $8 for drugs he never received. Police charged him with criminal
attempt to commit possession of narcotics. During his arraignment Tuesday, Judge
Bradford Ward asked Minnefield, "Did you really think the police were going to
go after the people?" He added that his question was rhetorical. Prosecutors
later dropped the charges. Laura Weslund, Minnefield's public defender, said no
drugs were ever found.

I'm trying to think of something, just...dumbfounded.
