  1. No risk to public saftey, why they tell my friend and room mate to find a spot in our house and hide. Why did they storm my property with semi automatic rifles and why were they shooting beside my house. No risk to public saftey my ass. They wouldnt even let me walk to my house.

  2. I agree! They said the same to me yesterday when I asked what was going on…..the cop said ‘this is an active investigation and we have it contained’. An hour later I see helicopters and hear gunshots; doesn’t sound contained to me!

  3. Oh for crying out loud ….they’re doing there job, like they’re going to stop to chat with you…they told you to stay in…be thankful they were there…they actually risk their lives…get over yourselves

  4. They were on my property too with assault riffles heard to flash grenades and about 30-40 rounds fired. I agree they are doing there job I have all the respect in the world for there task at hand, but it was a little unnerving being right next door with no idea of what was happening.
