‘X-rated’ police chopper talk broadcast to Winnipeg

Unsurprising, to anyone who follows police shenanigans these days…

Racy comments from a Winnipeg police helicopter were overheard by individuals on the ground Monday night through the chopper’s speaker system.

It’s not known if the speaker was inadvertently left on, but a police spokesperson said the department is aware of the situation and is reviewing it.

Parts of the conversation were quickly posted to Twitter, and then spread across social media.

The tweets started about 10 p.m. local time, and caused #whoops and #speakerphone to trend in the Winnipeg area.

One of the first to tweet about it, Natanielle Felicitas, told CBC News on Tuesday morning that she was enjoying a nice evening in her backyard with friends when the extra voices came from the sky.

“We paused to listen and were shocked by what we heard. It was a hilarious and inappropriate human blooper moment,” she wrote in an email. “I rarely tweet, but this moment seemed too bizarre not to share.”
