Harassing the Local Cops in the 1950's


We usually saved our best tricks for Halloween, but sometimes we just enjoyed harassing the local cops in Heavener.

Once we took a string of firecrackers and lit them and threw them under the cop car while he was asleep in it. That caused a small commotion for a time.

Another time we bought some of those fireworks that shoot up in the sky and then go off and shoot out lots of glittering fire works. We waited until he was asleep in the car again and each of us went to one of the other three intersections downtown and all at of us lit one in the middle of the intersection then the one driving the car picked us all up and we watched as the local cop ran around town looking for us.

We loved pulling pranks, we never got caught either.

Once I took a cigarette and lit it and then put an M-60 (or whatever they were), it was a big red round bomb that was really powerful, I put the fuse in the other end of the cigarette and then placed it in one of those brass spittoons in the old pool hall. Then I left. Mercy! It blew stuff all over the place.

We were always thinking of new pranks, mercy!

You must have been full of meanness! One of the cops in Heavener, his last name was Kunkle, I think, and some of us used to try things to get him to chase us and we'd outrun him, by going down the street passed where the Wade's lived. The one where the old skating rink used to be. Nothing real bad, though.

Hey, Bill, you had the "M" right, but the number was "80"...as in M-80's. Isn't that right? Those were good fireworks...better than cherry bombs. Fun times, huh?
