    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.

    Why do such things always seem to happen at Wal-Mart? I would have hit the deck and prayed my socks off. Scary situation.

    Yikes. I would have been shaking in my boots. I'm glad they found him and arrested him. Yikes, I'm scared just hearing about it.
