    Was anyone around 15th and 5th (by the guitarcenter) today around 3:45? I was walking home from work and about 20 cop cars came flying down union sq east and 5th Ave, sirens ablaze for no particular reason. This happened about a month ago on broadway at east 4th st... ***?
     
  2. Thats weird, had that happen here in Wilmington today too. I just figured it was something to do with the Azalea festival down here.

    Are you in NYC? I listen to NYPD sometimes on live scanner streams. Didn't hear this particular call, but it was probably an "Officer Needs Help" or something serious to warrant that many officers going to the scene.
     
  4. I have heard that they (NYPD) will do that every so often as a 'show of force' in case any potential terrorist is scoping out the scene. They figure if they spontaneously blast en mas through the street in a big way no terrorist in their right mind would consider what ever building they were looking at to be a viable target.

    Terrorist - in their 'right mind'.... hmmm... is there a flaw in this grand plan?

    My computer says the original post was made at 1:27 today, yet you say 3:45...are you just a night prowler? Or am I just insane?
