Sudbury, Ontario., police respond to 'noise' complaint, end up joining basketball game

It turns out that the sound of children playing outside is not a reason to make a police complaint.

In a social media post on Tuesday, Greater Sudbury Police said they received a noise complaint over the weekend that took a surprising turn.

“The complainant was disgruntled that children were outside playing basketball and ‘making too much noise’ at 7 a.m. on a Sunday,” police said in the post.

“Officers attended the location to educate the complainant that children are indeed allowed to play outdoors and make reasonable noise while doing so.”

It turns out that one of the youths was celebrating her birthday “with her siblings using the new basketball net she had just received as a gift,” police said.

“We stuck around to play a quick game! Happy birthday Payton!”

The kids are lucky this happened in Canada.  Someplace else the kids could have been shot by the disgruntled neighbour, or by the cop, or hit by a stray bullet from a gang war.

Actually, this happened in Florida, when not only did the police show up but the officer came back later with a whole team of LEOs and Shaq O'Neal. A great time was had by all and of course, Shaq handed out life lessons.

Good to see it happening in Canada as well.

Don't know the time but there was a complaint that the kids were too noisy, thus the cop showed up.

Okay, it is similar, and handled by the police in a similar way.  With all the shit being thrown at the cops these days it's good to see some positive stories.

Was it Elvis who used to say "Thank you very much"?
