Like many things in 2020, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade was not able to be held in person, but it will be held in person. This year in New York City. We're very hopeful.

The mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio says the plan is to have the famous giant character balloons, floats and marching bands all back for the parade. I'm Sean Herrick. John. Yes, I'm interrupting. I apologize. It's not about the parade. It's about the story you started with. So someone thinks student thinks they hear a gun. In a bathroom calls the police that ends up being dispatched as an active shooter situation. Uh huh. That I think that's a giant giant story because the question is, how are police supposed to react? What is the procedure and I'd love it if we have somebody who can find out. What is the procedure? When a student makes that call Showing up is one thing, But can you do? Are they supposed to take it this way? Is there a way this was dispatched and properly? Do we know any more of the story Because You know, it's one thing to be concerned about what's happening to dispatch it improperly creates a whole another level of possible problem. I think they were just going off of what the student was telling them. And to be cautious. They did have a bunch of officers there from several other agencies that were surrounding this happened about 10 o'clock yesterday morning. Um and then they just they sent a bunch of people there just to make sure that you know it was indeed. Not as serious as it was, and then when it turned out to be that they didn't have. There wasn't a gun there that no shots have been fired. Then they were all able to leave, but they wanted to have as many people there as possible. And, yeah, they were kind of going off of what the student was telling them. I think he was in the bathroom and he thought he heard a gun click, so they were just going off of what he said. I'm just curious to know if there is a standard operating procedure by which they're supposed to go until they're able to confirm things. That and is that is that county by county is that school by school is that a statewide Now I'm curious as to what the standards aren't if anybody knows I want to find out. I absolutely want to find out. That's why I brought it up to you. Maybe, you know, or you can. You can find out. I don't want to give you work to do. But I'm I'm that is a curious an odd story that I think needs follow up. I'll see if I can find out anything. You're a gentleman man. I'm John Herrick on the level on the going on w I b c dot com 6 35 with traffic.
