The PLAN

In the beginning there was the Plan
And then came the Assumptions
and the Assumptions were without form
and the Plan was without substance
and darkness was upon the face of the patrol officers

And they spoke among themselves, saying "it is a crock of ****, and **** stinks." And the patrol officers went unto their sergeants and said, "it is a pail of dung, and we can't live with the smell."

And the sergeants went unto their lieuteants, saying "it is a container of excrement, and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it."

And the lieutenants went unto their captains saying, "it is a vessel for fertilizer, and none may abide by its strength."

and the captains spoke among themselves, saying to one another, "It contains that which aids growth and it is very strong."

And the captains went to the deputy chiefs, saying unto them "It promotes growth and strength, and it is very powerful."

And the deputy chiefs went to the chief, saying unto him, "this new Plan actively promotes the growth and vigor of the police department with very powerful effects."

And the chief looked upon the Plan and saw that is was good

and the Plan became policy
and that is how **** happens
