    From the It Can Happen Anywhere, Anytime Dept.

    Had a police scanner going this evening. Around about 9:30 or so an "officer needs help, shots fired" call goes out. Apparently a youth (16-17 yrs old) shot at an officer and fled on foot and his partner got away as well. The manhunt was on and I was able to follow the action via the scanner.

    During the 2 hour manhunt there were several reports dispatched of people seeing prowlers in their backyard, door handles being jiggled and open/unlocked doors upon homeowner return. Some were probably just jitters and vivid imagination, but I wonder how many pistols and revolvers were dusted off tonight by nervous neighbors -- just in case?

    New at 11pm said at least one of the suspects was apprehended, and the other soon to follow.

    BTW if you don't have a police scanner, find out the frequencies in your area (radioreference.com is great) and purchase one. Very handy. Just don't take it with you in the car, as it is prohibited in some locations.

    I hope yours was in its rightful place on your hip. Glad to hear nothing more happened during the chase (like a hostage). And yep, bad things absolutely can happen anywhere, when we least expect it.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    Yep, mine was on my right hip where it always is (even at home). Here is the write-up in today's paper:

    My dad used to have a scanner that he listened to nightly. I've thought about it (hated to become my dad)...I may still do it.
    How much are scanners now? How do you find out the local frequencies?

    Lots of garbage to listen to...
