Walmart was having a bad night. In one Walmart parking lot a dead woman was found shot to death. In another one officers chased a woman around the parking lot who tossed items out of her vehicle. She was quickly apprehended. In yet another Walmart parking lot a handcuffed suspect took off running and almost made it across the parking lot when he was apprehended. Good thing I didn't need to go shopping at Walmart.

Some choices I really hate. I was bored. I'm stuck in a district for the moment that's slow so I decide to stop a car for a minor traffic violation and find four gangbangers in the car all decked out in their "money" or "menace ii society" tattoos. I'm thinking maybe if I dig harder I might find something big but all I had thus far was a ticket and a passenger with a Class C warrant. Then a guy comes running up saying his business' front door is wide open. For some reason my gut tells me to go check out the business and let the gangbangers go for now. I know their car so I'm sure we'll meet again. I check the business and find out the owners accidentally left the door open and fortunately nobody went inside and stole anything. I guess that passenger wasn't meant to go to jail that night.

A woman pulls a knife on another woman saying that someone will die today. The district attorney's office doesn't think that's a prosecutable offense!

A robbery streak is over. A duo had been targeting cell phone stores. After enough robberies and enough information to track them down unmarked units found them and chased them and caught them. Two down, hundreds more robbers to go!

Two guys came up with the idea to rob cell phone stores. They've been hitting stores for about a month but today their luck ran out. They hit a store and got away with little money. Later on in the evening they were caught by officers who chased them into a dead end and were caught. Their spree is over.

A young man with a wife and kids lived the ghetto lifestyle dealing drugs. He spent most of the day selling marijuana in an particular apartment complex when the wrong person got into his car and put two bullets into him killing him. His partner dutifully ran off not wanting to "be involved." Just another street statistic that nobody will care about.

A man despondent that his girlfriend dumped him. So he called officers over to "talk about life" and stated he wanted to die. So he got his wish and got transported to the psychiatric hospital. Clearly he wanted help or else he wouldn't have called.
