in local Wal Mart parking lot getting ready to leave for home when I seen a policeman wearing his uniform with a sniper rifle in the row of cars just ahead of me...and wondered if there was a hostage situation. He turned and pointed his rifle up the parking lot mid-way in the row of cars facing me. Apparently, they had word of a felon in a pickup there...and police were all over him. No shots fired, thank goodness!! Had not see rifles like that since we left Alaska.
I left as soon as I could; they did a wonderful job of serving and protecting...and secured their guy quickly. Still shaking.
