Protecting the public safety in a flash
Reporter Patrick Donges saw four police cars surround a black Bentley parked outside the closed nightclub on Maple Avenue, with a couple of officers' weapons pointed at the man behind the wheel.
Well, it turned out to be much ado about nothing. A call to police about an armed threat wasn't as serious as first believed.
But such a threat needs to be taken very seriously. And from what we laymen from the Fourth Estate could see and hear from our perch across the street, the police acted quickly and appropriately.
