Got 'em circling

I'm outside on Friday evening May 2 about 9:30 p.m. and there's a helicopter that has been hovering for the last few hours on the west end of town. I'm just wondering how much gas is used for that and who pays for it. It's got red lights and green lights and keeps hovering and circling the west end of town. Can you hear it? Inquiring minds want to know. My first guess is drugs. I know it's gonna run out of gas because it just keeps circling. Ha ha!

As reported in the May 4 edition of the Standard Democrat, The Southeast Missouri Street Crime Task Force, were increasing a law enforcement presence primarily dealing with street crimes such as narcotics, robberies and serious assaults. The Task Force consists of a combined effort of Sikeston, Cape Girardeau, Poplar Bluff, Charleston and officers with the Highway Patrol and National Guard.

West side story

Once again I can see our boys in blue are out making their round ups. You can look out in the sky and see the helicopters. The thing that really gets my goat is why aren't there any flying over the residential areas out behind the hospital and the church? Get the big boys that are bringing the stuff in. No, you are out there on the streets on the poor side of town where the boys are working for the people that are living in the big fine houses. That would be a bad thing wouldn't it? That would probably take out some of the city's best friends so we can't touch those big fine boys. I can tell by looking at you boys, you need to spend a lot of time pushing yourselves away from the table and more into the gym. We are sick and tired of watching them go on the poor side of town when on the rich side of town, nothing is happening to them. I see that you had your lead detective up in the helicopter taking pictures. Don't you think that some of you cops should have on your headlight before you hit someone and kill them or cause them to hit you? You have night vision, but all of us common people, we don't want to get charged with smacking you guys when you don't have your lights on. And some of you fine cops out there are your women-smacking-around dudes. Be proud of your force. And our National Guard is used for this?
