The heat is so bad in the U.S., that Massachusetts police is asking people to postone their criminal activity until it's over.

The Braintree Police Department wrote a tongue-in-cheek post on Facebook about the heat wave, which has been blanketing much of the U.S. over the weekend.

"Folks. Due to the extreme heat, we are asking anyone thinking of doing criminal activity to hold off until Monday. It is straight up hot as soccer balls out there. Conducting criminal activity, in this extreme heat is next level henchmen status, and also very dangerous," the department said.

"Stay home, blast the AC, binge Stranger Things season 3, play with the face app, practice karate in your basement We will all meet again on Monday when it's cooler."

Searing heat has been putting millions in danger this weekend. Much of the country has seen temperatures above 90 degrees, with heat indexes soaring to 110 degrees along the East Coast.
