"Was is a real gun?"
"I don't know. It might have been."
"So you said the boy had red hair. What color was his backpack?"
"What? I don't know, don't you think you should go check on the kids??"
"Ok. I guess I can drive in that direction."
Right then Lydia's bus pulled up and by the time I got back to where I saw the boy with the gun, there was no one in sight. What I just can't believe was how nonchalant that officer was. After what we have just witnessed as a country, shouldn't he have taken off like a light? Or at least asked my name for later questions? He seemed loth to miss an opportunity to give a possible speeder a ticket.
