Lets hope that its semantics and nothing serious.

Everything seems calm at the moment:

No news reports yet, but if true, CNN will say that this is occurring "only miles from the RNC Convention in Cleveland!". The network is pretty disappointed that there's so little RNC-related violence this week.

Hopefully, it 's just a false rumor though!

Update instead of prior news:
Breaking the NB Lanes of Cleveland Ave are closed at 11th because of a police situation. #10TV is on the scene.
From a periscope screen shot being tweeted- @ 49 secs.

Why can't BLM be one of those protests where the protesters get nude?

Has anyone found any updates on this? I can't find anything aside from RT, and other news copying RT's article.

I'm guessing it's probably a whole bunch of nothing at this point.

If there is something on the police radios about it, it's more then likily happening on a TAC channel, which the scanners won't cover.

I'm more then betting that the local PD and Sheriff's dept are keeping a lot of stuff off the publicly accessible radio, and on encrypted channels.

Remember, we're not the only ones listening, and the last thing we need is people adding to the mess.

I wouldn't jump to conclusions. This happened on Cleveland Ave in an area known for gang violence. Cartel related activity is also present in and around that area.

Just out of interest, how does it work with scanners over there in the US?

Are ALL broadcasts over the emergency services radio network able to be listened to by the average Joe?

I apperciate how it's handy or interesting to listen it as things go down, but as far as security is concerned, i'm surprised it's allowed.

I remember as a kid here in the UK listening on short wave (i think) on my stereo to the local police, they changed it all later though so we can't listen in.

Here you go mate.

Same here in Australia, we cant listen in any more. I found this site and you can listen all over the U.S and other countries where some are not encrypted.

In actual fact, i was listening when they were chasing the Boston bomber. The police channel was saying that he was hiding in the boat etc. We had CNN on and i was telling my family they have him surrounded... he is in a backyard hiding in a boat. Half hour later CNN was saying what i was. family were surprised i knew what was happening.

It seems like we can, I was just wondering about that the other day as I was listening. There were about 10k listeners on the scanner I was on, and someone gave out a SSN over the scanner........ made me super uncomfortable that I was listening at that point. Wasn't sure if that was his mistake or just a gaping privacy hole as far as scanners are concerned.

there are some frequencies you can listen to. in the U.S. the airways are considered public property and basic broadcasts over them are not protected under privacy provisions. the main exceptions are cell phones and military bands.
then there are some that are more secure, which are used for swat, undercover and other higher levels of communication.

I live in Columbus and I didn't hear about it. Cleveland avenue runs through some very bad areas of town though so it's quite possible. It runs from broad street downtown to Westerville Ohio.

A poster named "trollz" claims a new attack on police. No one else can verify. Hmm...

More than likely fireworks left over after the 4th.

Everybody in this country is just freaking the # out.

I'm concerned that with the prevalence of social media, and what flies as "reporting" these days. That just about anything can be fabricated.

What's stopping any police departments twitter poster guy(technical term, i know) from just posting some random "police under fire" scenario.

News stations will "cover"(link an article online) it without investigating.

Twitter users will retweet it.

People will just take it at face value. There are a lot of people that do things for attention, from all walks of life.

I think now, more than ever, involving all the "issues" we have, skepticism should be the ONLY thing we hold dear.
