Despite being heavily armored, the Duvall police were no match for a group of local kids who outgunned them during a brutal winter assault.


Things can get pretty dangerous on the streets of small town Duvall, Washington.

This week, four members of the Duvall Police department were dispatched in response to a group of "suspicious characters" seen in a local park.

After arriving on scene, the officers lined up behind a riot shield and filed into the park shouting "no mercy." Once in the park they engaged the "hostiles," who were armed with "improvised projectiles made out of fluffy snow."

The officers fought bravely but they were quickly overpowered.

After suffering heavy loses the remaining officers made a tactical retreat.


The heartwarming display was brought on by record snowfall which brought much of the greater Seattle area grinding to a halt.

With not much else to do, members of the Duvall Police Department decided to join a group of local kids for an epic snowball fight.

The officers were severely outmatched and had to make a hasty retreat but they took their defeat in stride.

Hearts were warmed across social media after video of the icy combat went viral.







And with all the bad news about cops these days people were glad to take a break with a positive story for once.





Though many felt the officers should probably brush up on their tactical training.





The Duvall police set an amazing example that others will hopefully follow (when off duty, of course).

I cannot be trusted with chocolate marshmallow cookies.

I don't even like marshmallows, but something happens in my brain when I bite into it and I no longer have an ability to say no. It doesn't even matter what brand - could be Mallomars, or pinwheels, or whatever your local store brand is.

Doesn't matter, just put it in the freezer and walk away. It's best you forget about it, because you'll never see the box again.

We all did wild things when we were young. Many of us still do wild things now.

Some of these actions were against the rules. Other actions weren't exactly banned but were frowned upon. And some actions were so crazy, no one thought about having a rule against them at first.

Sometimes, we do something so out of the ordinary that a rule is created so it won't happen again. These are often the best stories.
