Anyone have the scoop on this?
- About three hours ago, a male in his twenties, apparently of middle eastern descent, walked into the lobby of 024 with a bucket full of an unknown substance stating "this is a gift for your chief". When confronted by officers, he quickly exited the building while leaving the bucket just outside the front door. Officers successfully pursued the suspect who was brought back into the station. The subject stated the bucket was full of water and was a "gift". When Lt's DH and NS of 3rd watch were apprised of the situation, they were overheard saying "I would rather take the chance than cause any media backlash". Lt NS then ordered the officers to write the man parking tickets, release him, and then do an information report. No other units/agencies were notified. Said information report was to be forwarded to the FBI. The bucket of "water" was returned to the subject. Not only do I want officers to be aware such dry runs are currently happening here, I also wanted to point out the gross negligence of the two lieutenants....
Well this would certainly fall into the "un-fucking-believable" category in a normal month, but this isn't that time.There was also this little incident a few nights ago:
- With both the nation, and the city, on high alert, police are taking no chances on potential terrorist threats.
Last night, there was a large police response on the Gold Coast, as officers were trying to figure out whether an incident was the real deal, a false alarm or a drunken joy ride.
On Rush Street last night, SWAT teams descended with heavy weapons, after two people pulled up in a white van and yelled out that they were with ISIS. The suspects were described as bearded men in a white van with temporary plates. When police tried to stop them, the van sped away.
Uniformed cops and SWAT teams buzzed the area but they never caught the suspects. Police now believe they were probably just joking around.
Sure. Joking. Everything is perfectly fine, nothing to see here. Never mind that ISIS is issuing near daily threats and bragging of their "lone wolf" soldiers. Or that the FBI confirmed that a threat exists for this weekend in a number of cities across the globe. Continue living in your little bubble.
