It's going to be a hot summer

Little Dottie's doctor gave her orders to get rest and not to exert herself, and that includes walking. Last Monday we walked, and dropped by her house.

During the walk a police call came over the radio about a black male with a gun in the waste-band of his sweat pants walking in center city, on 4th St. near Main St. Shortly afterward we heard a gunshot. This was a few blocks from where we were walking.

Millville Police acted quickly and apprehended the suspect within ten minutes. I have a feeling it is going to be a busy summer for the MPD.

Speaking of abusy summer, I have not seen the bike cops in a couple weeks. Last night there was a near riot on 4th St. between Sassafras and Pine Sts. at 11:25pm. I think the mob was 40 to 50 strong. Police disbursed the crowd within 5 minutes of my phone call, but I believe that a police presence in Center City on these warm nights would have prevented the sort of flash mob starting in the first place.

Is anybody local monitoring Facebook and Myspace for this sort of activity?
