Helicopters Buzzing Downtown Part of Joint Military Exercises Supported by LAPD
As if the downtown area isn't already alive with the sound of ghetto birds, the LAPD announced this week that it will be conducting exercises with U.S. Armed Forces.
And those nighttime exercises will include buzzing, ominous helicopters.
So don't trip out, crackhead at Fourth and Hill streets:
This is only a test.
The "joint military training exercises" being supported by our fine po-pos are being staged, in part, "to ensure the military's ability to operate in urban environments," according to an LAPD statement.
