Keeping The Public Informed

There is an article in the newspaper today praising the two new local websites – one a citizen’s support site and the other a Computer aided Dispatch system which really just shows 911 calls.

When I checked the site this afternoon the call that caught my eye was “Terrorist
Threat”.  Wait, in Paris? Texas?  What is more bizarre is when I looked up the address it was the local McDonalds.  What would be the point?  Mickey D’s is killing us anyway – all an enemy would have to do is wait for the cholesterol to hit it’s ceiling limit and poof!  We’re gone.

I can’t imagine a scenario where something could happen in the McDonalds here that could constitute a threat.

As Alice would say, “Curiouser and Curiouser”….

    …and this morning I checked it and unit P237 was involved somewhere on Clarksville St …. you’ll never guess the nature of the call. The website actually said “Report Writing Time”. I assume the addy on Clarksville St is for the police HQ. Now, here’s the scenario I’m seeing: Unit P237 has to do some paperwork (possible related to the terrorist bombing at McDonalds?) So apparently, having to fill out paperwork is considered an ’emergency’ now???

    And suddenly I am about to spew my drink out in laughter as I imagine Ronald McDonald and Grimace in turbans and AK47s, waving them enthusiastically and shouting. You can’t make this stuff up, people!
