Philadelphia Police Say Posting Star Wars Spoilers Should Be A Crime


While they acknowledge that posting Star Wars: The Force Awakens spoilers the week of release isn't actually a crime, the official Facebook page for the Philadelphia Police Department says it probably should be.

They also staged a photo shoot wherein they took a couple of Stormtroopers into custody, a little reminiscent of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice filmmaker Zack Snyder's "stolen Batmobile" joke.

You can check out their post below.

No, posting #StarWarsForceAwakens spoilers online is not a crime. Yes, it should be. However, any illegal Sith behavior will still be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Not in our town, Kylo.
