@Hofnaerrin: Great job and mega thrilling! Thanks for all you do. Not just on the keyboard but also in real life!?

@Kourry_Kurmann: When do I have to pay the costs of an operation? Is it always the person who reports first who gets the bill?

< 0,1% negative @kohlenklau: Am I the only one who wonders whether a PR stunt like #stapo24 really is one of the duties of the @StadtpolizeiZH?
