You should probably go back to drinking. You sound like a dry drunk.


What is a dry drunk?

<quoted text> yes, I agree with easy girl, take a valium. Most communities have a phone notification system for emergencies, school closings, tornadoes, ect. The option is yours, turn your phone off If you want, but the warning should be there! If there was a notification warning of a dangerous fugitive in the area, and I heard or saw something strange out of my window or heard strange noises, I would be more apt to call Police rather than roll over and go back to sleep. It's not rocket science, but it sure seems like it struck a nerve with you . Maybe, the people wouldn't open their doors and get in the way of the police who are searching for an offender, if the people knew it wasn't safe to open their doors Einstein! Been there! done that ! Most times 911 callers tell the police where the bad guy is hiding. Go back to schuffling paper and leave the police stuff to us. Patrol officers are treated like they are stupid by the status quo in the department, but some of us stay in patrol because we actually know what we are doing. Carry on ! you are dismissed as another know it all who obviously did not spend enough time learning to patrol before being promoted into the realms of superstardom. A real patrol officer welcomes the publics' help and information to keep everyone safe. Either you are an alderperson or a really sorry excuse for a police officer, and yes I can tell you drank the blue island water.
WOW! Looks like I struck a nerve with you, huh? Let's try this from a different approach..........Police cars all over, helicopter above..........hmmmmm, I'm not going to go back to bed, common sense would tell me there's something pretty serious going on so maybe..........I should not walk outside my house because if there's a shootout I might get hit or taken "hostage" (if that's the case), I wouldn't want to walk around and possibly mess up any evidence that may be found, so I would wait for an officer to come to my door to ask questions. If I know of or see anything I would call the PD. OH! And I know all about how you love for people to come out of their houses and tell you what you should be doing. And yes I heard the complaints of how the neighbors were coming out and telling the Officer on scene how to get a school bus unstuck from the snow..........

This is exactly my point! You said " I'm not going to go back to bed, there is something serious going on" My question is How would you know??? All I was saying is that it is the people's right to know if there is an emergency situation right outside their door which may or may not put them in jeopardy. What if that fleeing felon was hiding on your back porch and you DIDN'T know, or worse, you heard a bump in the night and dismissed it, and it was mr. bad guy forcing your door open. I think I would rather be alerted to the possibility of danger, rather than find out the hard way. That is all.

Nothing less than "Repeated Failure" that should not be tolerated at any level of municipal government.
