This is Radcliffe, a small town in England which is just outside Manchester.
To mark April Fools' Day, the local police tweeted this:
Rather than letting sleeping jokes lie, the cops dug in further, assuring concerned twitter users that the prisoner release vote was an election ploy by politicians for the upcoming British general election.
They even provided updates on who was winning.
And just to really get people fired up, they told people that the winning prisoner would get a two-week trop to the Mediterranean with a whole lot of spending dough.
So are you really surprised that they had to tweet this a few hours later?
