A Typical Weekday Night in Pasadena

Tonight is a good example of the helicopter problem in pasadena. It's a Tuesday night and looking out my window there is not a whole lot going on....except of course for the insane amount of police helicopter activity. You would honestly think a triple murder must have happened within a few blocks of my apartment. Probably 5 or 6 helicopters fly by my apartment within a 1 and 1/2 hour period.

Given the apparent state of emergency that has been declared in old pas, I decide to brave the danger and walk to Gelson's for some evening grocery shopping. And gee, to my utter shock (sarcasm) I find it's just another sleepy tuesday night in pasadena. Where are the squad cars frantically searching for the perp? Where are the fleeing suspects, victims, and passerbys? Nope, just me and a few other pedestrians casually walking to where we're going.

On my 10 minutes to the market, 2 helicopters fly by. No ground presence, no crime activity, nothing. Walking home, another 2 helicopters go by in different directions. Once safely home, 2 more helicopters fly by followed by a third pasadena police department chopper that decides to circle for 10 minutes within a few blocks of my old town apartment. And yes, as I write this post another ppd another helicopter passes by.

I don't know about you, but all I can say is thanks for the police helicopter escort to the grocery store this evening....I couldn't have made it without you!
