A buddy sent me the following link from an interview I gave some time ago that just won’t go away 🙂
"Sgt. Jay Chase and four members of the Houston Police Department’s gang unit felt a twinge of apprehension when they learned they might be confronting men armed with assault rifles. — "We were really not set up to go against folks with AR-15s," Chase recalled. — They were sent to a north Houston apartment on March 12 after receiving a tip that some men with assault rifles had snatched a group of illegal immigrants…"
Yesterday was fun, I came in early to go look for our bubble gum machine burglar, but as soon as I got on the air, several units bumped me to let me know that he had been captured earlier that morning!! Good news, so I celebrated by eating a bowl of oatmeal with soon to be Sergeant Garrison and heading to the station to do paperwork for the next five hours… but – fear not – the shift lasts ten hours!! As soon as I hit the street, I heard one of my buddies from Auto Theft asking for a unit to sit on an unoccupied stolen with them. So, I decided to go by. Got one unit to come with us and we set up for a good while. As usual, no watched pots boil… and no watched stolens get re-occupied :)…. I had gone back to the station for a short break and we intended to call it in about twenty minutes and head in. 20 seconds after leaving the station, I ran a plate on the car’s computer, and there it was… stolen!!! Long story short, there was a confrontation, a chase and ultimately, someone was placed in jail!! Of course, the car we were sitting on… it just got recovered and towed away . I got home around 8:30 pm and my legs still felt like jelly! Definitely need to beef up that running program!!!
