The past 24 hours or so have been busy!
It has been very quiet at work. Apparently the criminals were home eating turkey with fixins and opening presents too. So there weren’t many arrests.
Precinct News Flash!
Last week we had a big incident in the precinct. The officers were trying to arrest an EDP ( NYPD cop-speak for Emotionally Disturbed Person ) and naturally the EDP gave the officers hell trying to arrest them by fighting. It took six officers to tackle the EDP and the Lieutenant felt that the EDP was still too out of control so she tasered him. Unfortunately, since all of the officers were holding the EDP, they as well as the EDP got zapped! So all six officers went out like a light as well as the perp! Of course all of the officers put in line of duty reports and thus all of them got off for the Christmas holiday! What a mess! I hear the Lieutenant is being investigated for improper use of the taser. After all, you are supposed to taser the perp, not the cops too! Proof of incompetence!
Ah well . . . . . . .
Now, I didn’t go out to church Christmas Day because I had to work and was tired. I should’ve went anyway. I was kind of bummed out because I would not have been able to attend Christmas dinner, because, I had to work. But I should have went to morning service anyway. Everyone was worried about me and texted me. That’s my Christan family. Thank God for them.
Now, yesterday I wasn’t able to go out to church again because of the impending storm. If I had gotten out to Brooklyn I wouldn’t have been able to get back to Manhattan once the blizzard started. Nothing or practically nothing would be running. So I texted a couple of people and let them know that I wouldn’t be able to come. My sister Angie was worried about me and texted me again.
She called me and told me I should’ve come out and stayed in Brooklyn with someone. Only problem is I had to be at work. How was I going to get to work?
Anyhow. I went to bed and had a decent sleep for a change. Got up and started puttering around. Cooking rice and peas, doing laundry, on the computer chatting with Jo, etc. At 9pm I called the Precinct, and asked them if they could send a cop car to pick me up. Now, this was directly as per The Boss Lady who suggested it. It is NYPD policy that when something like this happens you as one of their employees are supposed to get to work by any means possible. Now, I was NOT going to stand on no street corner and wait for no NYC Transit bus in a darned BLIZZARD! So TBL suggested I call for a car.
The desk Sergeant told me 11pm they would be by to pick me up. I was dressed and ready at 10:45pm and I got a call from them that they could not pick me up. Why? Because the precinct had been SNOWED IN! As of 10:45pm last night no sanitation truck had come by to clear the street in front of the precinct, so they couldn’t even get their cars out of the street! THAT IS A NO-NO!
I’m not the commanding officer of the station house, but shouldn’t they have called Sanitation and let them know that it a priority for the street in front of the precinct to be cleared out? Plus the precinct snowplow wasn’t working! When I called I kept hearing this loud ripping noise over the phone! My co-worker told me that they were trying to start the thing, inside the building, and the fumes were killing her!
Since they couldn’t get me, the gave me the day off. Good! I went right back to sleep!
I’m thinking of going out and trying to get some snow photos today. I will try my best not to bust my behind while doing it.
That’s my story for now!
Via Con Dios!
PS Good News! I renewed my membership with NAMI ( National Alliance of the Mentally Ill )! I used to be a member of that national organization for years but suddenly stopped attending meetings because of my crazy schedule. But, now that I am in sort of a pickle and they are in touch with lawyers and legislators who are very sympathetic to their causes. . . . . Let’s say, it’s better to take a full army into this battle instead of going against the enemy alone.
