MURDER RAMPAGE SHUTS DOWN CITY AFTER DARK
THOSE ROAMING STREETS WILL BE ARRESTED
ACTING MAYOR REFUSES TO ELABORATE
NEW BABBAGE, NB — After the recent slew of abominable murders within the city, acting mayor Mr O Underby — in lieu of Clockwinder Tenk — issued a statement to the press, earlier today:
Effective immediately, and until further notice is announced, a citywide curfew is to be put into effect. Persons of all ages are to remain indoors after sundown, and remain so until sun up - no exceptions. Any person, or persons, found roaming city streets without authorized permission (of which none will be granted) will be subject to immediate arrest and detention at Militia Headquarters until they can be tried for their crime, or the curfew is lifted - whichever occurs first. It is for the protection of the citizens that this extreme measure has been taken, and we hope you will do your part to conform and protect one another in this abysmal period of the city's history. —Mr O Underby
Mr Underby refused to answer any further questions for the Free Press at the time of announcing the curfew.
