That's nothing. Several years ago my son and his "friend" took $29.63 worth of groceries from a local grocery store. There were NINE (9) cops, using FOUR squad cars (all running, blocking up our street), at our house looking for the boys. But that`s not all! The police helicopter was buzzing around in circles overhead, too! They took reports, etc. for almost an hour when I finally realized the ridiculousness of this and I said, "Not to be disrespectful officers, but as one of the people who pays your salaries I am shocked that it requires nine officers, four running squad cars, and a police helicopter to deal with $29.63 worth of milk, eggs, and whatever else. Can you explain why it takes so much police power to handle this situation?" They stared at me like they wanted to taze me but none answered. Some left a minute later. I said, "I`m done here." and went back inside. drating police state.
