'Your mic is still on'

WINNIPEG — Police in Winnipeg were red-faced recently after an incident involving a helicopter and an open mic. Officers on a routine helicopter patrol inadvertently activated the aircraft’s public address system while having a private conversation — and a lewd one at that. News of the R-rated conversation took off on Twitter as city residents who could hear the conversation took to social media to urge the police to turn off their loudspeaker, according to Reuters. “Does the #Winnipeg chopper realize the entire West End can hear their convo about blow jobs right now?” tweeted one person listening from her backyard.  When the police became aware of the situation, they immediately turned the system off. “Some content of the conversation was inappropriate. The involved members were not able to hear the public address system from within the aircraft,” said the police, who are reviewing the incident.
