That last time I had PD helocopter circle over my 'hood, the PD guy came to my front door with a fully automtic 9mm AR15 asking me to turn on the lights in my backyard.

Wouldnt you know, all of my DPD buddies that work nights are off tonight. I called one and he said he'll listen in on his radio.

DPDs air fleet is in such bad shape, everytime they are overhead, I'm afraid the damned thing will fall out of the sky. They are using some very old Jet Rangers, but this year some new helos are on the budget. Hopefully they'll get some of Careflites Bell 212s....those things haul ass.

MD530s are so much cooler and more tactical than the Bells.

Its what Blackwater uses and the 160th SOAR uses a variation of them.

Nothing is more tactical than a Bell UH-1H/N

Are they sniping dogs from the helicopter? I hear they can see them inside their doghouses with FLIR.

Let us pray.

Why don't you just make it easy for everyone and surrender peacefully?

They like it if you wave at them with a laser pointer. Try it.

Hows about going out back and pop a couple road flares and start waving them from front to back and see if that will draw them in.

When I lived in an appartment, I heard this chopper orbiting overhead one night and thought I'd go out and investigate.

I was walking around in the parking lot when all of a sudden DAMN! It was daylight! Man, those things are freakin bright.

Guess I didn't fit the description cause he moved on...

Went back in and had a drink...

You know you live in a bad neighborhood when the Ghetto Bird comes by once a week.

I live next to 635-LBJ, and there's lots of police chases, wrecks, and other shit like that, so yeah, Air 1 is over quite often.

I'll swing by Dallas Executive Airport (I still call that podunk airport, Red Bird) and see if DPD has their new bird yet. I havent heard of them getting it yet, but who knows.
