Not really that funny, was it?
This week medics and police spent several hours investigating a “dead baby” in a park in Queens, New York City–until a medical examiner realized the baby was actually just a doll (https://www.usnews.com/news/us/articles/2019-06-18/a-nightmare-that-was-not-new-york-rescuers-find-dead-baby-is-actually-a-doll).
After first responders pronounced the doll dead, police roped off the area as a crime scene and began looking for clues. They stopped when the M.E. told them it was a doll, not a baby.
In fairness, it was quite a realistic-looking doll and police have procedures that they must follow to secure a crime scene for the collection of evidence, some of which can be literally microscopic. So what we have here now is a prank that wasted police and first responder time.
We also have a rather horrible irony. Here all these guys are, pouring time and labor into what they think is a dead baby left in a public park… in New York state, where the governor recently turned on all the lights to celebrate a new abortion law that allows them to kill a baby as he or she is being born.
Why is the one apparent killing a police matter, and the other… just “women’s health”?
