Gang initiations? Something more sinister?
- O.T. Was buried in the news. Shots fired at the police on the 15th at 85th and colfax. The shooter called in a man with a gun, waited for the P.O.s to show up and when they did a street stop, came out of a gangway and shot at the police and the crowd. The civilian standing next to the cop was shot in the neck.
The perception of outrageous behavior by the gangs isn't just a perception. It's becoming obvious, even to the most jaded among us, that the gangs are testing the limits and responses of police on a near daily basis and suffice it to say, the responses we hear, see and experience don't engender a lot of confidence in the Department's ability to respond appropriately.
