  3. Hey,

    Love the blog. I live in the 2100 block of 18th (which I guess is kind of in Borderstan?) and I am just wondering how I can check up on an incident that happened last week. At about 3:30am on Tuesday morning, April 6, I was woken up to police in our alley screaming at someone to “come out with their hands up!” The cops were swarming all over my building’s roof and the one near me. As a concerned citizen, I would really like to know what was going on and I was hoping you could tell me where you get these reports so I could check it out?
