In some cultures, that is how people express thier affection and love. In the facebook,twitter,blackberry,iphone age, some express their love by tweeting and sending text messages/emails even though they may be sitting right next to each other.

Nanak, I think you're speaking of the Klingons from Star Trek fame!

I've always wondered why PD won't mention the officer's name. He/she should get credit for jumping in and averting a possibly dangerous situation!

I am sure that the department members know his or her name. I am sure the officer doesn't want his or her name published for privacy reason.

I am curious. Would this even be a story if a uniformed officer drove by, saw the assualt and jumped out of his patrol vehicle to assist the woman? Is this really news? Why does the police department feel a need to alert teh media about these trival dealings? More real news please.
