Facebook Communication With East Hampton Town Police Department Over Dan's News Article

[UPDATE: Everything below this update comes from a satirical article, one of many Dan’s Papers has published in its over five decades of publishing.

Thanks to prompting by the B&B, I asked the East Hampton Town Police Department via Facebook about the article. This was what they said, for those who can’t see the new photo above:

Hoax. 2% Tax cap on municipalities, we have a very tight budget. Any time you see “hamptons” police, it’s a hoax…. All the police agencies are East Hampton Town, East Hampton Village, Southampton Town, etc….there is no Hamptons police. Dan’s is famous for their farce pieces. Sorry.

I hate that I was fooled by this, and apologize for reporting it as news in the first place.

P.S. To the staff at Dan’s Papers: I did a better job of fooling people than you, and I did it without trying – CA].
