Real Police


It was another typical April 4 x 12 tour in 1989. The call came over the radio. “10-20-Burglary in Progress - 225 East 19th Street -  Apartment 6 B - Male Hispanic 20-30 years old - Green jacket, Brown Pants - Anonymous Caller.”  We were just around the corner and stopped the RMP a few doors down, walked to the building and saw him by the time we walked up to the second floor of the six story walk up.

Victor was coming downstairs carrying a big Sony Trinitron Color television, a clock radio and a plastic shopping bag. He was real cool, smiling while being confronted by two uniformed cops.

“What’s up with the TV?” I politely asked. 

‘I’m just going to fix it for my buddy” Victor smilingly said. 

Jimmy asked if the clock radio was in a state of disrepair as well.

“Yea, I guess it is.” Victor mumbled, now avoiding eye contact.
