Well I see getting shot on the freeway will result in an 8 hour shut down of all lanes.

Jump off an over-pass and get killed will shut down the freeway for 145 minutes.

Interesting...

Thanks for listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo

At Julie -- obviously the investigations were totally different. Every spent shell needed to be accounted for in the shooting. There is a difference between murder of a police officer and a obvious suicide.

There are five sentences in this story. Four of the five end with the word "said". What member of the clean-up crew wrote this one? Terrible composition.
