Weekend Update

I was walking the lake this weekend nearby these incidents.

It didn’t make the news but woke up Friday morning to a SWAT team across the street surrounding a guy in a car. About 15 police with guns out.  They shot out his window and arrested him.  Never found out what he did for all that.

Other sad weekend news:

Locals are starting to organize to document and confront the bad behavior around the lake and trying to engage the city council and Mayor.   I don’t think the city has the stomach or resources for it though.
