Let The Rain Come Down With Blue October At Toyota Music Factory, Have A Blockbuster Night With Run The Jewels At South Side Ballroom And Slay Demons With Kid Cudi.

Social media posts nowadays go viral for seemingly no reason at all like “Damn, Daniel!” or for very funny reasons, like the guy we wrote about a couple of weeks ago who donated a baggie of drugs to the Addison Fire Department.

But the Redford Township Police Department’s post went viral in what can only be described as a community effort to accomplish some justice after an area internet troll claimed that he would turn himself in for his warrants if  one of the police department’s post got 1,000 shares or more. He also promised he’d deliver a dozen doughnuts.

Well, Champagne Torino — ass the troll was going by on Facebook — had to eat his words because the post that was posted last week got more than  1,000 shares in the first hour. To date, the post has been shares almost 4,500 times.

No word yet if the troll has turned himself in yet, but one this is for sure: he skimped on the promise of doughnuts and that’s just not a nice thing to do. So whatever you do, try not not to be a jerk-face by skipping out on the promise of food if you’re heading out to one of these events this week. — Juan Betancourt
