Standoff Fail

Step away from the plates

Oh well, seems Aussie police aren’t immune to the occasional awks. Seems the men in blue spent 7 hours outside a house in an apparent standoff. Only prob, the house was empty. The Critical Incident Response Team members claim they were negotiating with a man who refused to leave the house but when they finally decided to enter…..crickets. Pity the fool who had to tell the school that had been in lock down all that time.

OK, We Have The House Surrounded

police 740 armed police armed with assault rifles and an armoured BearCat vehicle surrounded a house in Sydney for three hours in a tense standoff with a man believed to be involved in a shooting. Police, using a megaphone ,tried to coax the man out but after getting no joy they sent in specialist officers from the Tactical Operations Unit to force their way into the house. Problem was the house was empty. Awks. Still no word on who or where the gunman is.
