A police sergeant has resigned his post after he was reprimanded for forcing subordinates to binge on 15 hamburgers at a time to "toughen them up".
The unidentified traffic sergeant, 40, stepped down from his position in Japan's western megacity of Osaka on December 25, the mass-circulation newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun said.
He repeatedly ordered four younger officers to, in one sitting, stuff themselves with bulk meals such as 15 hamburgers, 15 donuts, four large-sized cups of instant fried noodles, or 3-4 litres of coffee-flavoured milk, the report said.
"After finding they were not working hard enough, I did it in order to toughen them up," the unnamed sergeant was quoted as telling investigators of the Osaka prefectural police headquarters.
The younger officers, in their 20s and 30s and assigned to two community police stations, were forced to binge on the meals when the sergeant visited them at work over a period of 10 times since early 2010, the report said.
He ordered the young policemen to buy the food and drink themselves out of their own pockets, and consume it inside their tiny "koban (police box)" stations as he watched.
A press officer at the prefectural police could not immediately confirm the report.
Well at least he didn’t shoot a dog
With those illegal orders, that Sergeant bit off more than he could chew!
Headline makes it sound like the guy eating the hamburgers was reprimanded & resigned.
HaHa. The title is worded as if the officer quit because HE was forced to eat the burgers.
He’s in a real pickle.
He’d probably enjoy a sackfull of Krystals, but I think they come in 10 packs.
you relish threads like these, don’t you?
The police motto: To Project & Gorge
wow! what tough cops he’s gonna make, stuffing them full of fattening food. Think: Buddah with guns?
And people wonder why ETs don’t show themselves.
Commander Zot: “Well, what are these human like”?
Lieutenant Zap: “Well, uh, sir, it’s like this...”
What do you think was in the hamburgers?
Hmm, now that I think of it, we only did that team building exercise once...
think: Porky Pigs (with badges)?
Whatever happened to good old-fashioned police brutality?
They mustard him out of the ranks.
When I was in the service, I remember going to Sandy’s and getting a dozen burgers (I think they were .12 apiece) No problem downing those things and at the time my weight and the price was the same. A buck fifty.
If he shamed his family he’ll have to take a stroll to the suicide forest.
How many guys are sitting here thinking “Damn, I wish MY basic had been like that”?
No doubt about it his buns are toast.
Heck, for most US cops, that is just a warmup for a good sugar buzz..........
He checked himself into the Mayo clinic.
If it were 15 White Castles, I can do that. Though I really shouldn’t, love those “murder burgers” too much ;)
so it is fair to say
It doesn’t exactly sound like SEAL training. More like WALRUS training.
I’ll need some time to ketchup on the comments before making one of my own...
I think I have inspiration for a Doritos commercial.
you sound a lot like a Fred I know...
Jeez.. Even in the service they only made me run 2 miles to teach me a lesson. I was already tough.
“He ordered the young policemen to buy the food and drink themselves out of their own pockets”
That sarge should be forced to eat 15 Bowel Burgers Au Jus!
Yes it does. Not very well written.
