OK, I'm really weirded out from something today:

I was driving from one hospital to another, the latter in Pomona, CA, when I saw a fellow standing with a small group of people on a street corner in a residential area. Suddenly, a non-descript, dark-colored sedan darted onto the street, with a guy hanging out the passenger window. The young man actually dove head-first over a three-foot fence, and got to his feet, and ran, zig-zagging.

I saw no gun, but it looks like I just witnessed an attempted driveby shooting...

You never know... everyone could have been playing around, or it could have been serious. There was a family renting at the end of the block here, kid used to hang out the window of the car as they drove by, wearing a mask, acting like he was shooting a gun. Once I asked the mom "what do you think you're doing?" - she said "his father plays 'dry by shooting' with him."

Cops hang out at a local gas station, I told them about this, they mentioned they'd been hearing about it. I noticed the cops started driving past that house a lot more, and eventually those folks left this area.

I just feel sad for the kid.

I HOPE it was just some assholes frightening the other fellow, because I really didn't see any gun, but damn, the one guy sure did seem to think it was for real.
This ain't no party, this ain't no disco...
