    Maybe somebody has a clue what's going on here. I sure can't figure it out.
    For the last four nights at about the same time (approx 11pm) a helicopter with a searchlight which I assume is police has been circling over my neighborhood. I'd say it's circle maybe covers a 4 sq block area. For about an hour each night this chopper flies around covering the whole area with the light as if they are looking for someone. The first night there were two cruisers that drove down the street at a high rate of speed while this was going on but haven't seen any activity from police on the ground since. Anyone want to hazard a guess?

    Any possible perp types in the hood?
    Could be they almost had one but lost 'em the first night, just trolling to get lucky.
    We get alot of DEA and coasties, even had chopper landings in the hood.
    And it's a good hood.

    You might call the police and ask.

    When I was in California, in some areas there were multiple helicopters with search lights in the air every night. At times they were looking for something specific, but usually I think it was as a deterrent. We called them the "Ghetto Bird". They were incredibly quiet for a chopper.

    This is NOT a good neighborhood. Lot's of thug types wandering around. I occasionally make a quick trip out late at night for cigars or something to eat and there will be 7 or 8 with a hoop set up on the curb playing basketball in the street..and groups of 2-4 wandering around up and down the street. The thought just occured to me that maybe they are looking for congregations of gang bangers. Whatever they're doing I've never seen them do it before.

    I think the #1 cause of teen pregnancy is hot teen girls and horny teen boys, but I could be wrong since it's been a while since I was a teen. At least that's the way I remember it. :eek:
