There are five police cars in front of the apartment...

    ..next door to mine. I live in Dallas. Crime happens..but five police cars is a lot..... No blue lights and no emergency vehicles...that signals to me they're investigating a crime that's already happened which is unlikely a burglary.

    How can I find out why they're there? There are two houses in between my complex and that one but the complexes are similar.

    If a murder happened down the street I'd like to know about it.

    Can I call the Dallas PD? I really don't want to walk down there and seem like I'm rubber necking.

    Wait until tomorrow morning, then go down to the PD and ask for last night's reports.

    I'm guessing you don't work at a newspaper; otherwise you could just ask the cops reporter or a night editor.

    It's time to admit it. Who did you kill?

    Do you have a dampened rag ready to tie around your nose and mouth in case they use tear gas?

    Once in a Southern town at an earlier newspaper stop, we owned a house next to an apartment complex. They had a fight at the apartment complex one night and there were nine (9) police cars in the street. It felt like I was living in the southside of Chicago or something. The landlords evicted the trouble-makers and got new tenants and it was fine after that.

    Turns out it was a suicide...33 y/o guy. Sad but not something that makes me fear for my safety.

    I had to look to see if Cradle Robber had started this thread.
