Thank you for monitoring 14!

No problem.

Busy today, 14 will keep you from snoozing! Some nights it keeps me awake or gives me nightmares. I had no idea what a crime ridden neighborhood I was moving into. It seemed so nice all winter.
I heard firecrackers this afternoon but no gunfire. I wonder about the shots fired on Cortland.

What a supression gang mission?

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

You're right, Blonda. 14's kept me from snoozing so far all day. I'm getting sleepy now (but will stay awake until midnight). I was actually in a backlog of putting calls up here until a few minutes ago. I was about four hours behind (because I also was doing other things). I'll probably be a behind again at some point tonight, as I'm still a little busy multi-tasking.

Anyway, it calms down in the winter in most of the neighborhood (not where I live, though), but then really gets crazy in the summer. Thankfully, things will start calming down a bit in the next month or two, as fall is on it's way.

"Officers are advised to use caution, there's an unconfined cat on the scene." That's funny!
