Ahh, . . . the sounds of slumber. It's late at night. We are snuggled up in our warm bed, and we are being lulled to sleep by the following phrases being shouted out of a bullhorn from a police helicopter.
"STAY IN YOUR HOUSE!"
"YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SHOT!"
"STAY IN YOUR HOUSE AND LOCK YOUR DOORS!"
"THERE ARE POLICE DOGS OUT!"
"WE ARE NOT KIDDING, IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SHOT, GET IN YOUR HOUSE AND STAY IN YOUR HOUSE!"
Ok, so my question is . . . who is outside trying to see the police action? There were floodlights from the helicopter shining all over our block and up and down our street, in our yards, on our roof, in windows. There were multiple police cars around, a police helicopter overhead . . . and our neighbors were walking outside to see what was going on ???!
I love living in the city.
p.s. I did not take that photo. I was in bed with the covers pulled up over my head. It seemed to be safer there.
