Craigslist is great for finding cheap second-hand goods, unbelievable apartment deals that are too good to be true. It’s also great for getting mugged and swindled when you respond to the post. You always have to be cautious.
And this person was not only timely but may win the brand new made-up-on-the-spot Troll of the Year award, or the Trollie.
I feel for the city of Oakland. It has gone through so much political and social turmoil over the last decade that three police chiefs within a week time is adding insult to injury.
It looks like a real post, it reads like a more professional Craigslist ad, but of course then you see the “Compensation” tab in the top right corner.
It stings because it’s true. Desperate for a competent police chief and I hope Oakland finds that person soon.
But back to our award winner, congrats for a well-timed and well-placed troll job.
