This story can only be spuriously related to videogames by putting a Left 4 Dead spin on it, but it's just too awesome not to write about. A short Twitter exchange between a concerned citizen and the Boston Police Department revealed just how dedicated the boys in blue can be, as they pledged to inform the world of any zombie attacks they come across.

Boston_Police: INJURED OFFICER: Officer from district 4 transported to Beth Israel Hospital, human bite to arm, suspect in custody.

willcady: @Boston_Police if that was a zombie bite, would you tell us?

Boston_Police: @willcady Yes, absolutely

With so many videogames based on zombies, we should be more prepared than anybody else to tackle the undead menace when it comes, and it will definitely come one of these days. As skilled as we may be at introducing flesh-eating ghouls to the business end of a shotgun, however, it's great to know that the police will be looking out for us with the rotting apocalypse arrives.
