4AM; A very low helecopter woke up my home and items were rattled to the ground. I looked outside, saw the spotlight and knew it was a searching but unable to see markings as only the underside was showing and it coulda been media instead of the police. So I contacted the police on the non emergency line to get an understanding, and if it was them, and wheter the suspect being searched for poses a very real threat ie: Armed, Prisoner escape, Murderer ect. concered about the level for my household sake. I get, "Well you can all go to bed It's a POLICE MATTER not concerning your household,the situation is [ under control ] our units are working the area." I said excuse me sir?! Are you telling me a helecopter with a spotlight in my yard hovering breaking items at 4 in the morning and no police or cars insight, having small children and wife with TONE you're telling me i have no right of concern to question are we endanger? He replied "I've told you; go back to bed this is a POLICE MATTER and we will not disscus any further-- Good nite!" (Click). 30-45 minutes pass knock on the door,, It's the police, and i'm thinking they're checking up on us. I answer Hi ya doin? (Cop) ** [But not just any cop; he id's himself as the Officer on the phone call I made earlier!] He says: "We are looking for a Male (x.y.z.) have you seen or heard anything?" I said, "Yes." (Cop) And what was that?" I answered, "MATTERS!" (Cop) "What? What Matters?" I said, "You figuring it out by doing your job and without my help @s$#*le-- just like you said back at the station "It's a "Police Matter." (Door Slam) He knocks, I opened the door "...AND WILL NOT DISCUSS IT WITH YOU ANY FURTHER !" ( S L A M ! )
