Read Boston cops' pathetic attempts at infiltrating DIY punk scene

Poor police. They don't make the laws, they just have to come up with some way to enforce them — which sometimes means some embarrassing missteps.

That's the case in Boston, where police were tasked with cracking down on the underground punk and rock music scenes. House shows, unannounced publicly and known only to those familiar with underground music, have drawn complaints from neighbors and other residents.

So Boston police went to work creating false identities to try to catfish bands and members of the scene, hoping to learn about shows and shut them down when they happen.

The only problem? Cops aren't punks. And their undercover attempts aren't very successful. Case in point? “What is the Address for the local music show tonight?" Yep, Not a Cop.
