Jedi police officers. really

A BBC report on Thursday:

Eight police officers serving with Scotland's largest force listed their official religion as Jedi in voluntary diversity forms, it has emerged.

Strathclyde Police said the officers and two of its civilian staff claimed to follow the faith, which features in the Star Wars movies.

The details were obtained in a Freedom of Information request by Jane's Police Review.

Strathclyde was the only force in the UK to admit it had Jedi officers.

(thanks, Cindy)

Sadly, access to Jane's Police Review is subscription-only. I think that might have been a Good Read. (And, oof, the BBC report was anything but. In fact it was unutterably lame.)

By the way, the Church of Jedism is real.

This all reminds me of the astonishing Jedi Gym video I posted about last year. Be sure to watch it to the end. (Oh, I love this one...)
