I was just standing at a bus stop with 20 cops
Seriously, 20 cops in uniform and me waiting for the #66 at Chicago and Larrabee.
You have to take my word for it, I know. There was really no way to get a photo, though. I mean, how do you ask 20 cops to pose for a random photo?
I couldn’t just stand idly by and not acknowledge that I’m waiting for a bus with 20 cops. I turned to a cluster of five and suggested, “I certainly do feel safe right now.”
One of them responded, “Gimmie your wallet!”
We all laughed.
Bus arrived 10 minutes or so later and stopped right in front of me. I squeezed on first. The bus was too crowded for 20 cops, so they decided to walk.
As the bus drove away, a teenager—why wasn’t he in school?—looked at this swarm of cops and whispered to himself, “What happened?”
Nothing, kid. Nothing happened.
