Cops Busted Down My Neighbor's Door This Morning
I'm sleeping in our spare bedroom after our 2 year old kicked me out of our bed when I hear some yelling and then what sounds like a loud gun shot. Then someone on a PA saying something I couldn't make out. I use the skills I honed from watching The Wire to run into our bedroom and grab my wife and kid and pull them on the ground. After maybe a minute everything is quiet so I go look out the window. There have got to be 8 cars outside, most parked down teh street, with my neighbor across the street on his knees handcuffed They stay for a few more minutes and then everyone leaves at once. Some other things I noticed:
-What I thought was a gun shot was probably just the flash bang that they threw into the house
-Out of the 8 cars I saw, there was only one squad car and all the other cars were unmarked. I didn't see a SWAT van or anything like that, although there were a couple guys dressed like SWAT team.
-The whole thing took like ten minutes and after they left it was like noone was even there. I would think someone would stay to search the house.
-Outside of waving hello, I don't know the neighbor very well. I've tried to think of anything suspicious about him and really can't think of anything. He does have a corvette which seems somewhat out of place in po' neighborhood filled with typical 3 br, 2 bath starter homes, but not that big of a deal.
-The amount of people involved in arresting him makes me think they believed he was armed and dangerous, which bothers me. The whole thing really upset my wife. I tried to play it down to her by telling her whatever he did, he didn't do it here because otherwise they would've marked his house a crime scene (I have no idea if thats true or not, but she seemd to buy it)
Anyway, thats the story of how I've been up since 4:30 this morning.
