LAPD officers were playing Pokemon GO instead of responding to a robbery

Sometimes there are downtimes at work when you have nothing to do. Some may disapprove of playing during work hours, but hey, you should pass the time. You just need to prioritize your time and know when it’s time to work and when it’s time to play, it shouldn’t be too much of a deal. Until something goes wrong.

Unfortunately for a couple of LAPD officers, they decided that trying to catch Snorlax and play Pokemon GO would be a better use of their time than responding to a robbery in progress. This happened back in 2017, when the car system recorded the conversations of both officers, ignoring attempts to contact them by radio.

This contradicts what the officers said when they initially told their superior that they did not hear the call for reinforcements at the mall. But, judging by the recording, both officers simply ignored attempts to contact them, and one of them said: “Aw, to hell with him.” It was also found that instead of going for the robbery, the cops moved back across the alley and turned away from the mall where the robbery was taking place. I’m assuming they had Pokémon to catch.

The officers also denied playing Pokemon GO, claiming they talked about the game and received text messages from a group of Pokemon GO players. Both officers were fired and they tried to appeal the decision, but recent reports show a California appeals court upheld the original firings.
