So the other night we received a phone call from our next door neighbor at almost 10:00 at night.
“Do you have any idea why the police are walking around our neighborhood with dogs?” she asked.
We did not know, as a matter of fact, having been blissfully unaware of the presence of law enforcement on our quiet, weekday evening. But as it happens, we do know someone who could probably find out for us.
So we left our friend a voice mail asking, “Um, say, just hypothetically speaking, there were a bunch of police walking around our neighborhood at night with dogs. What might that be about?”
We heard back from our friend today. They haven’t yet found out the details of this specific incident, but they did pass on one little nugget of law enforcement wisdom:
“If the dogs come out, then someone’s getting bitten.”
