AND!!!!! Yesterday LAPD got a call about a burglary in progress. They found the smashed window… and then got into a foot pursuit with the 20 yr old suspect. The audio is below. Regardless of what you think of the cops, LAPD busts their butts trying to keep us safe that this clip shows just how crazy the job can be when trying to catch the bad guys. Show them a bit of support with some holiday food this Thanksgiving!
