Default Head Smashed in with a hammer

"Hey what's the description of this kid besides white male?"
"Just look for the guy with his head smashed in with a hammer and that'll be the guy we're looking for."

I had to replay it on the scanner to video it and then I had to replay it about a dozen times to get the narrative correct!

I don't suppose there is a way I could attach the MOV file is there?

A local repeater had some upgrades and now when the callsign comes over once an hour, it now has a much more interesting voice of a sexy supermodel instead of that nails on chalkboard male voice.

Heard Central Dispatch tell a Battalion Chief that a certain Deputy wanted him to call his cellular the other day. The BC asked if the Dispatcher knew what it was about and the Dispatcher replied, "He's out on a lock-out...and the vehicle the driver is locked out of is an armored car. I imagine he wants to talk to you about that." Time to fire up the K-12 saw...

This morning i heard two highway patrol officers having a little frendly competition about stopping a woman in a lexus suv texting... They go over to EVENTS1 talkgroup and I hear one of 'em say "whoohooo yah 10-81 (stopping violator) I26 Lexus SUV plate # so and so yadda yaddo..." I guess that he made his quota for the week

Today, a rider got on a transit bus and passed out. Medical and possibly police were sent to meet the bus at the end of the line. A transit supervisor responded and reported that "Well, they're not going to take him away by ambulance, he's going away by police car". Dispatcher replied "Well, I guess he should have woke up". Supervisor: "Well, that would've been the smart thing to do."

Also, I wish I still had the audio from back when regarding a call from a bus operator about "some walnuts that had fallen from a tree and were making things slippery". The supervisor responded to dispatch (supervisors don't communicate with buses directly) something like "You know what? You didn't just call me about that. You did, didn't you. OK, thanks. Bye. That's ridiculous."

At the last place I worked they rebuilt the main office and for a long time as we would get phone calls to have the lights turned on during the weekends. Even after a memo sent out explaining security no longer controlled the lights.

Of course when they re-striped the main parking lot and put in real handicapped spaces. "No you can only parked there if you have handicapped placards or plates." But we always always parked there during the weekends. One guy who insisted in parking there came out to find a state violation ticket under his wipers. Security didn't call, but I know who did.

And a funny noise come thru my scanner but it wasn't a broadcast noise.... Folks don't ever let your batteries die in your Pro106 and its siblings, because when they do, if someone is speaking, it sounds like someone farting. Did this the other day

The strangest sound that you have to hear at least once.

After a wreck was called in, the dispatcher told the cop that "a one month old said he needed an ambulance for an evaluation"... How did he do that other than crying Dispatchers ruuuuuule!

Just heard on the local school bus frequency (bearing in mind that it's mating season for whitetail deer):

"Well I didn't see Santa Claus but I just saw reindeer doing calisthenics so that's a good sign, ain't it?"
