I can see helicopters from my window | Monday, February 9, 2009 | Momaw Nadon

The City of Salem has warned people away from Bridge, Lathrop, Barton and Webb Streets via reverse 911 and local access cable. I can see helicopters and can hear sirens.

NOTHING on the local news TV or radio stations and it has been going on for over an hour.

SALEM (WBZ) ― CBS Police have responded to a standoff situation at 92 Bridge St. in Salem Monday. According to police, a shot was fired inside the home. The street and the surrounding area have been blocked off as police work to diffuse the situation. It is unclear who is inside the house, or if anyone has been injured.

I’d say it is a journalist’s job to diffuse the situation. Lately.

File image. That's the best they can do, I guess. Couldn't they at least have shown a tire, too? Maybe a cruiser door handle?

Nobody ever goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.

Ha ha.

Many years ago my ex-wife was a news graphics artist at WBZ.

When the state legislator Emmett Kelley passed away, few were amused when her colleague ran a picture of Emmett Kelley the clown for the WBZ news story.

Whoops.

Good one! Accident, I assume? Or maybe not. Wonder what happened to the colleague.

Other than the link you posted, there’s still nothing on local TV news. That’s strange.

Dang, I was kinda hoping the boston tea party 2 was starting up and the media was trying to protect their savior from bad publicity by not covering it. Darn !

Yes, accident. It was so long ago that I can barely remember it, but I vaguely recall that she cried and they didn’t fire her.

They’re probably burning or dunking a few witches.

There’s been a sighting of the Ninth and Tenth Amendments. The government agents will soon have them trapped, subdued, and locked up again.

you guys are hilarious. coming straight from me, being someone from salem. on bridge st. there was this guy and apparently he’s a drunk and has got some mental issues, and he took a hostage and held the hostage at knifepoint and police were shot at and there were cops being shot at and such. my friend said it might be on a few news channels, so watch for it. it happened in a mutli-family home right next to a convinence store/gas station.

witches.. wow. hah
