The Warwickshire Police station in the UK asked Twitter to help identify a suspect in a February burglary but all they had to go by was this computer-generated composite sketch that left many people shaking their heads.
And like a rebellious child who chews on everything because they're teething, the Internet did what they do best, made fun of the situation. I mean, in their defence, someone with a smile like that shouldn't be too hard to find, right? Well, it all depends on who your asking. Here are some of the better responses.
"Could you describe the burglar?" "So you know Henry J. Waternoose the third from Monsters Inc.? He looked like that" https://t.co/srNjTy6J3P— Boubacar Bamsey (@ryan_bamz) April 3, 2018

The Warwickshire Police station did eventually address the trolls and probably had a good laugh about the photo themselves.
We can confirm that this is real and that we anticipated the attention! But jokes aside, it was created from a description provided and it's serious as a woman was victim of a horrible crime. Hopefully the attention will mean we identify the offender/bring him to justice quicker— Warwickshire Police (@warkspolice) April 3, 2018
