Out of the Blue

Today is the last day of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. True to that it is pretty mild out there, and while there's still a healthy coating of snow, this is melting off. We've still got some harsh weather in the future forecast though, so I guess the groundhog was wrong this year.

I think the city will be bringing it to your neighborhood, but I’m not sure when,

I think it is the old Supply and Demand deal. (you in the 4th or 5th?)
Isn't it already on the North side?

You guys have it good (so to speak) as you also have the cameras and such in your area.

I am sure our area will be the LAST to get any sort of technology - as there never has been a need. Just compare the different precinct's crime maps. Ours is pretty sparse, until you get around University/Lowery and Central/Lowry.

But come on, when the shells are LAYING IN THE ALLEY IN PLAIN VIEW - do you really need a "gunshot locating system", even with witnesses. sheesh.

But the bad guys aren't complete idiots - they look at the maps also, and use them to their advantage.

All this and I get my ranking letter from Minneapolis Police Department today. Pretty good considering I suck at the bench press. Apparently my interview was one of the top and my running abilities is better than most.
