Ways NOT to start a report...
I know this was discussed somewhere before, but let's resurrect this. What are good ways NOT to start a report. Such as....
"This guy came runnin' up on me, so I pulled my Taser and gave the Gump a ride."
Lets hear some more.For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

"Dipshit tried to tell me that wasn't his dope"Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.
Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.
May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

My FTO ( long time ago) told me that his previous rookie was told to write up an assault report. His entire report was this:
"The dude went upside her muthafuckin head with a stick". My FTO swears it was true.

Upon observing a woman with large breasts drive by me, I intiated a traffic stop...
True story.And Shepards we shall be,
for thee, My Lord, for thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls will it ever be.

One of the guys I worked with crashed a patrol car because he had his head up his ass. The last line of his report on the incident was, "I'm sorry and I'll never do that again".
The Sgt thought it was so funny he posted a copy of it on the one of the bulletin boards for a while!

I use the following in a "report writing" class I teach:
TEN THINGS NOT TO WRITE IN A POLICE REPORT
1. A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away . . .
2. The names in this report have been changed to protect the innocent.
3. The Mayor then made an illegal turn onto Smith St. at which point I opened fire . . .
4. Once upon a time . . .
5. It was a dark and stormy night . . .
6. You ain't gonna believe 'dis crap, but . . .
7. It was a full moon . . .
8. I never thought this could happen to me . . .
9. The suspect then repeatedly assaulted me by slamming his face into my fist.
10. Got call. Arrested bad guy. The End.

"The listed victim advised he was robbed at the listed location at the listed time."
An actual robbery report I received from a 10 year officer. Of course I was the assholefor rejecting it and making him re write it.

An inmate actually wrote this as his beginning after being involved in a use of force:

The victim said "yeah, it hurt like hell".
Actually, I have a tendancy to ask victim's if it hurt, and if it did, how bad...
I also find ways to throw in the word "dinger"
"Man, that looks like it hurt, looks like a real dinger."

It wasn't a cop's report, but I read a report written by a college security officer here who said that a woman attending school there had some guy "stocking" her. He used stock and stocking all through the report. Apparently he wasn't working his way through college.
