Good morning, everyone, it's 11:16am. Yeah, I know it's kind of late, but I was doing other things. Well, today is the day after Christmas. I've owned my scanner for 366 days now, and my new camera for about 30 hours. Christmas wasn't too exciting this year (as in getting presents, Christmas spirit, etc.) because of the economy, but the scanner was exciting to listen to last night, especially on the west side. Multiple melees broke out around 9:30pm. First there was one near Lockwood and whatever street at about 400N, then there was one at 1035 N Mayfield. Family fights caused the melees because they spilled into the street. There was some stuff going around here (though not nearly half as bad on the west side), but I didn't report because yesterday's post was messed up with it's HTML. Well, here is crime for today (I have the radio all day today).
