Just a Hunch

On our walk back from the park today, I rounded the corner with the boys in the double stroller. I saw two policemen half a block ahead getting out of their car, guns drawn. I paused, then saw another police car pull behind theirs. A third policeman got out, gun drawn, and joined them as they approached a house. I crossed the street and picked up my pace for home.

We’ve had a rash of burglaries in our neighborhood. I heard two stories last week about two different busts, but I’m guessing the burglars remained at large. Perhaps they are no longer.

    Are you kidding me? I hope you do not plan to leave it at that… at a ‘hunch.’

    Call your local precinct, report what you witnessed. They should be able to give you general information as to the incident. If the police were, perhaps, hunting a fugitive pedophile in your neighborhood, you have a legal right to know. Yes, it could something less nefarious. Or it could be MORE.

    And I will expect an answer/explanation about this. If not for the sake of my sister who I love dearly and could not live without, then for the sake of Perfect Drake and Budda Guppy.

    Called the precinct and found they were responding to a burglary in progress call, but it turned out to be a cleaning woman. I’m sure they scared the shit out of her, and in a depressing thought, I’d bet she wasn’t white, which is why the call.

    I just called the precinct too - guess I should have checked here first. Had the same thought about the cleaning lady.

    The officer also said the rash of burglaries in the area had quieted down, thought he did not know one way or the other about arrests.
