We pulled into the parking lot and there were cars parked every which way. Some of them had the doors left open. It looked like the drivers had just pulled in and abandoned their cars. I wondered what the heck was going on when Brandon said, "Look, the police have a guy pinned to the ground."
Now I just happened to have my camera with me. When we were going out the door I put it in my jeans pocket. And lo and behold, it worked. Here is a photo of what we saw. The police have one of the perpetrators on the ground and he was putting up quite a struggle. Just the other side of that man there are drugs and a handgun.
As we got out of the car we saw that they had another man and a woman, both cuffed. The woman was crying and saying she was innocent.
The police weren't buying her story and kept her cuffed. Then a police car pulled up and a female officer got out. She frisked the woman and even checked inside her shoes.
We went and picked up our drinks and came back outside to watch. We stayed for about a half hour and just as we were pulling out, more cruisers were pulling in. Some of the police had already gone to a motel across the street to check that out.
The boys were quite impressed with seeing this in real life. They wanted to know if the woman was really innocent. I told them probably not, but even if she had no idea about the drugs and gun that she was guilty by association. This lead to a discussion about choosing friends carefully. I hope seeing this in real life let the boys know that they have to account for their actions and also for their friend's actions. A good lesson for both of themToday was a beautiful day here with a cool breeze and no humidity. It was a beautiful day to get outdoors. Enjoy your Tuesday. ~Blessings, Mary~
