Police Need Help Finding Men Who Did Nothing Wrong

If you see something, say something, especially when a guy wearing open-toed sandals challenges you to a rap battle.

Boston's WCBV5 tells us local authorities are looking for leads in a rash of attempted rap battles:

Charlton police said a black SUV with two or three men in their late teens or early 20s inside, pulled up to three young teenage boys on Dresser Hill Road at about 3 p.m. on Saturday.

One of the men -- described as having brown hair and a pale complexion, wearing a gray T-shirt, gray pants and open-toed sandals -- got out of the vehicle and started rapping while the other men asked the boys if they wanted to "spit some bars" with them.

What did the rappers do when the kids refused? Nothing, they got back in their car and left.

This story makes me uncomfortable. Charlton police should spend their time catching real criminals, like the ones who commit mime attacks.
