Saturday Night

Chelsea Kapfer

Well, the beer was flowing and the drunks were, well, drunk. My sister is a bartender downtown and her bar called the cops twice tonight. But, KU won and celebration was on the menu. And of course, some people celebrate too much. One guy passed out while waiting for the ...

Hello! As some of you may know, I am returning from a 2 week break. Seems like I had a lot of stuff going down in my own life and needed to deal with all that. So, that said, now I may return to focus on other people's drama since ...

Arcing Power lines at 26th and Iowa

Chelsea Kapfer

There was a call tonight at 26th and Iowa regarding "arcing power lines". We have all heard of these, but I wondered about them. What are they? What causes these? What do you do if you see one? Well, I'm going to tell you: The weather often wreaks havoc on ...

Whatever happened to "helping a friend out"?

As you know by now, I listen to my police scanner a lot. Pretty much all the time, really. There is something I have been noticing that has been bothering me. It seems like, instead of being neighborly and helpful, that people just call the police. It seems that we ...

January 19th Rundown

Chelsea Kapfer

As expected there were many, many calls for non-injury accidents and motorist assists. When I was driving to work I saw more cars on the side of the road than actually driving on the road. The police had a couple of calls i feel were somewhat inappropriate; one caller needed ...

Strange Night Indeed...

Chelsea Kapfer

It wasn't particulary busy on the Police Scanner last night, it was just kind of ...weird. The moon appeared full when I gazed upon last night, and you know what they say... Someone called in around 9pm and reported a low-flying aircraft off Clinton Parkway- they said it was "very ...
