    Shots Fired...

    So... it's about 11:30pm Sunday night and I hear gun shots. About 9 shots. Not firecrackers... This is close to my home. I don't appreciate gunfire in the neighborhood and did my civic duty, called 911.

    The Sheriff's dispatcher listen's intently to my complaint... then she says..."Oh, it's the Superbowl, the Packers won!". Then with out a parting salutation, she hung up.

    So apparently, gunfire is OK if the Pack wins the Superbowl.

    The Pack they won, so git my gun

    Bang bang, Bang bang, 'twas so much fun.

    I shot the gun into the air,

    The slugs they land, I know not where.

    I surely meant, to do no harm.

    I hope no one, has bought the farm.

    I shot the gun into the air,

    The slugs they land, on HB's lair. Oops

    Gunfire is NOT OK when the Packers win the Super Bowl. I wonder how that dispatcher would feel if later in the day, or in the future, the victims of a real bad guy shooting (or a domestic thing gone ballistic) are/were found.

    I myself had every hope that the Packers would win, so I sent 150 rounds into defenseless pieces of paper at the range a few hours before the game started. Then I settled into watching the game with a Porterhouse Steak and some really nice shrimp.

    Appropriate behavior in my humble opinion...

    The rule of law has been suspended in Buffalo County. The dispatcher was actually amused that I called.

    Back about 1997 I found an 38 round laying on my roof. Never gave it one thought to be from the super bowl. I wish I would have kept it. Of course there are other rounds in my overhang from shots heard during the year.
    I hate living close to the LEO practice range?????????????

    You have to wonder how many citizens would think it ok and a defense against the law of firing within city limits because their team won a championship, or LEOs who would pull up and then allow it was just exuberance.

    Or is it just Superbowls and World Series?

    A neighbor of mine is a detective- I wonder if he would share the same carelessness as that operator (I think not).

    I Had a Superbowl Party at my place, I had Meatballs in BBQ sauce, Jumbo Shrimps, Grilled Brats, Dorito's & Nacho cheese sauce, Summer Sausage & cheese, Pretzels w/ a cheesy beer dip, A full wet bar with all the Booze & beer you ever wanted...and awesome Bloody Mary's. I have left overs for a week.

    oh yeah..No shots fired here. lol But I did do a few shots of Bailey's & the Doctor

    Sounds like Vilas County to me.

    I called them last year around the 4th of july because someone was setting off several firearms around my house. I am betting at least 1 shotgun. When I called the cops cause I had nephews over and didnt want one of the kids getting hit by stray fire, the cops just told me it was probably someone scaring off a bear. When I explained that it was more than 15 shots, and they started going off almost in my back yard I said I would call back when someone had been shot by these ********.

    About 30 minutes later (The average response time to my area), one showed up to hear the shots still going off. Though I live in a school zone and had kids in the house, the first cop agreed that they were odviously gunshots, and the supervisor that showed up went over and told the neighbors that I was just "A Crazy Vet" and they should be more careful cause I might loose it.

    I later talked to the neighbors and found all this out.

    A month later I called cause someone was trying to get in my house around 4 a.m. and when that same supervisor showed up, he told me that next time I should shoot the guy so that they are at least coming out for something.

    I will never call the cops again unless I have to really hurt someone.

    Agreed. Similar attitude here. Never had a dispatcher chuckle at me over a call like that so that was new...

    interesting concept, advocating you break the law, to give them something to do, never mind the other lawbreakers that were currently engaged in breaking the law. I guess the totality of circumstances just didnt add up. i hate when that happens.

    If it were not for the fact that my mother was a probation officer for 20 years, I would say there were no other real criminals up here, but between the drunken brawls and the meth labs, I think these cops would have their hands full. Unfortunately they are too busy going to work so drunk that you can catch them urinating on their own squads, or dating freshmen from the local high school, or even chasing people out of town and letting the person they are chasing take their squad cars for a joy ride while they fire rounds into it. Ahhhhhhh.................... Gotta love northern Wisconsin.

    Sadly, the stuff that has been told is true! Lets not forget about the drug planting case by a certain DNR employee and the other goofiness which is law enforcement in northern WI.
    Anyone remember a guy by the name of "Tyler Peterson" of Crandon? Google it if you do not know who he was or what he did.
    Sadly, the breaking news story about his actions did not surprise me one bit! I expected it to happen long before he actually did it.
    There are a few decent guys in brown uniforms up here, it is the smaller blue uniform departments which you really need to be weary of.

    So, firing a gun into the air doesn't even get a squad car out, but OC at Culvers and you'll get harrassed by the PD?
