After reading this and smoke in mirrors comments and watching some episodes of Cops on TV it is apparent to me that Cops are stoopid.

This officer was on her way back from a child abuse symposium and was caught in the path of the tornado. She wasn't out just chasing a tornado for fun. In addition, when a funnel cloud is reported law enforcement is dispatched to those effected areas to confirm the sighting. Its a shame that this officer traumatic experience is a laughing matter for some. Thankfully she is ok and will recover from this experience.

la Porte County has 42 sirens...they were all sounded when the funnel was spotted. Prior to the funnel being sounded we were only under a watch. Sirens are never sounded if you are only under a watch.
