Phony Explosion uptown
Around 10pm Thursday night, I got many emails from readers concerned about an “explosion” that happened in the vicinity of 13th & Adams, 14th & Grand… Many car alarms going off, ground trembling, etc.
I was downtown near the Shannon Lounge, and asked a few cops what it might have been. They told me it was “Tactical Training for Homeland Security”… I didn’t believe them, and went to check it out.
I got in the area of Carpe Diem and asked the owner what he felt. He said there was some ground shaking, but didn’t hear anything about it. We called HPD, and they said it was SWAT training.
Why have Homeland/SWAT training on Thursday night at 10pm? Why not tell residents about it?
