OT: Crazy

I went to the city to see "No Country for Old Men" this afternoon. It was extremely violent and suspenseful (in a good way), and the violence was still reverberating as we left.

So, I got out to the sidewalk and walked for half a block when an unmarked police car with sirens on top sped around a corner onto the sidewalk right in front of me, so that I had to step back. Three guys rapidly jumped out of the car, they all drew their guns (at me! given the angle), screamed FREEZE!, and then ran by me, guns still drawn, and tackled some guy in the middle of the street, yelling "YOU THINK WE'RE FUCKING AROUND?!!" From what I gathered, someone had gotten shot at the metreon (not the theater where I was), as there were ambulences and 30+ police cars, and they taped off the entrance. The guy they arrested struck me as being under 20 years old. Let me tell you: when a car screeches up in front of you, and several guys with guns drawn rush towards you, even though that was a 2-second experience, it is damn creepy.

Left me shaken for awhile. Scary and sad.
