Will It Go 'Round In Circles?

Will it fly high like a bird up in the sky? You bet your ass it will. At 0430 today, just as I was hitting the sack, an L.A.P.D. chopper started orbiting this sector for about two hrs.

Overkill Editor:
It was using its Nightsun. Other than that, no idea, esp. since the City News Service timeline says the perp was located at 0300 & the chopper didn't show until 0430.

A few yrs. ago someone in the same block possibly took a shot at someone from their balcony. There were two choppers for that one (surprised they didn't collide in mid-air) & the streets were closed.
