Power Outage and Helicopter Search

Well everyone in Delmar was awaken this morning (1 AM)to a Helicopter shining it's lights down on us. From what we can gather is there was an accident out at Racetrack Road and Second Street and the driver was missing. Police cars all over the Old apartments behind me, so there must be a reason for that. My daughter called 911 to ask what was going on and they only said "We can't say." It would be nice to know if there was an armed fugitive hiding out in our backyard and they were looking him/her. At least we could make sure the security lights were on and the doors were locked and I was armed. This is the way our police/emergency people are anymore. Unless you are in the secret club they could care less if a major calamity is about to occur to you. Fire all their fucking asses and buy a gun to replace them.
