Police Scanner Update for 1/16/2011
It's been an interesting couple of days- as usual. A major public nusiance was taken off the streets. See the article at http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2011/jan/15/lawrence-man-arrested-theft-forgery-charges-follow/#c1484362 Score one for the good guys!
A couple of interesting calls; a man called 911 from Lawrence Suitel because a car was parked near his room with an offensive bumper sticker, and "he works hard to pay for this room." And before you even ask, I did drive over there the next morning and looked- because, like you, I was DYING to know what this sticker said- but couldn't find a green Cutlass. I wasn't willing to get out of my car too look much further. I guess we will always wonder...
Another call today- someone reported a woman was on Clinton Parkway without a coat. Curious. It seemed to me to be really nice today. I was walking around without a coat. I guess i should be glad noone turned me in!
It seems to me that the police spend a lot of time on silly calls. While this does offer entertainment that is way better than cable TV, I feel a lot of resources are being wasted. How do you weed them out though? I understand the police have to respond to them all-because you just never know what the heck might REALLY be going on.
