Jumping at shadows?

By johnboy - 22 September 2010 6

The ABC reports that most of Watson was locked down last night because a guy might have had a gun, but didn’t.

Officers blocked off most of the main streets into Watson for about an hour, diverting traffic and doorknocking homes.

They found the man did not have a gun.

He was arrested and charged with breach of bail and property damage.

Worthwhile precaution? Or over reaction?

What’s Your opinion?

I would say someone smart has figured out how to get the AFP to respond quickly.

Is that a salami in your pocket or a gun? Better ring the police just to be sure….

Over-reaction.

Hindsight’s always 20/20 vision. I wonder if you could’ve made that call at the time though…

I guess after receiving a report of someone carrying a firearm, if the Police had of ignored it and the guy did have a gun, I wonder what the post would have said then?

It is good practice for the police anyway, to treat these things as a serious incident.
Better than a drill anyday.
