Thought I heard gun shots (my cat seemed to agree as he ran out of the room) so I checked the scanner. It came from around Wrightwood & Central but was only fireworks.
I've only been listening for about 15 minutes but it is busy.
And the steamy temps this weekend will not help. Everyone be careful out there and listen to your gut instincts.

I thought they were gunshots, too, Ally. I was going to call, but then the cops were saying it was fireworks.

Yeah, it's busy. It's always like this on a Friday night.

I agree with you on the temps, and like you said, everyone needs to be careful this weekend.

My police call was responsible for 5-8 Mexican shithead arrests today outside my crib.

Milwaukee and Drake... They were all smoking and drinking.
I came outside after observation and saw them cuffed against a VICE non-marked squad. 15-20 mins later the paddy wagon picked them all up.

I could not help to laugh watching the losers get rounded up like CHUMPS.

All it took was one phone call...

Anonymous, glad to hear they were arrested. Those guys have been causing problems over there for a while now, and they were finally arrested. As for one phone call, that's really impressive, considering this took place just east of the 14th/25th District border. I didn't think the cops in 14 would actually arrest them, but obviously they did, and I appauld them for that.
