Police officers have come under rifle fire attack in the city of Columbus, Ohio, reports on Twitter said, citing police scanners.
“Officers under attack from rifle fire,” the message on Columbus Police Dispatch said.
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.
