i'm at 39th & lincoln and can still hear the echo of the megaphone...

~2:30 i was walking home on 41st, when i crossed hawthorne i could hear the echo in the distance, (another cruiser just flew by) as i got closer towards division the repeated drone of "come out the front door, i know you're in there"

i curiously followed my ears towards the "activity"- there were some vicious dog-barking noises and then silence... made it to about woodward and gave up

soon after turning home the megaphone blare began again- guessing it's around 43rd-46th somewhere btween division & powell

we're not just going to hurt you 22.Jan.2005 04:20

we're going to bullshit you first

If there was real murder and mayhem going on in the house, the pig's'd just go right in. As it is, they'll fuck around for hours first because deep down they know the laws they're enforcing (probably some stupid drug raid warrant) are inherently unnecessary and their basic priorities are all messed up. Then eventually they'll go in anyway, blasting anybody who looks at 'em funny and making up bullshit stories about it later, and neighborhood teenagers'll buy their speed from the other guys down the street next week.

wow! please don't write all in CAPS - difficult to read.

Absolutely nothing on local news media websites Saturday AM.
Hmmm, imagine that. Thanks to you, a volunteer reporter for
the news.
