The Ghetto-chopper hovers
over my back yard.

Well this is fun (not). I'm sitting here with Sid watching Family Guy when 4 or 5 cop sirens blast past on Chicago Ave at Mach 2. What the hell is going on?! I peek out the front window and witness another dozen cop cars fly by. I notice they're all congregating at the corner. 42nd and Chicago.

What the hell?!

So I lock Sid in the kitchen and walk out the back door into the alley. Upon reaching 42nd, I say hello to the rest of the neighbors gathering to see what's going on and get stopped by two separate squad cars on the way. (Guess I look suspicious in the alley with my wife-beater on.)

Apparently someone in a ripped off vehicle ripped down 42nd and then Chicago at over 100 mph then quickly ditched the car and ran into my neighborhood. So over 50 police (no exaggeration) are currently canvassing my block.

I've been warned that a canine unit will sniff my back yard and I should stay inside with the doors locked. Uh -- yeah. No problem, sirs. Want me to send Sid after 'em?

And now I hear the ghetto-chopper overhead and see the spotlight lighting up our back yards. Watch the news tomorrow!

Holy vigilante-ism! I think every guy under 24 within a twelve block radius is now out with flashlights ready to "get that son-of-a-bitch". Jee-zus -- people -- let the cops do their job and go back inside. Besides the chopper and squad cars left fifteen minutes ago. Clearly the near vicinity is no longer much of a concern.
