Oh my freakin' GOD!
So someone (the DA?) signed off on the warrant and basically placed the entire neighborhood on lockdown?
School lockdowns lifted after hunt for bobcat ends
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Four schools were placed on lockdown Thursday morning after reports of a bobcat sighting.
Police said a call came in just before 11 a.m. reporting a three-foot-tall bobcat on Bannockburn Street, near Charleston and Rampart in western Las Vegas.
Authorities locked down nearby schools as a precaution: Piggot Elementary, Jacobson Elementary, Derfelt Elementary and Johnson Middle School.
see the story with a video.
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- It was a tense situation in the central Valley Saturday night.
Las Vegas police and SWAT surrounded an apartment complex near Decatur and Sahara, looking for a wanted woman.
Police haven't said who the suspect is or what she's accused of, only that she's being investigated for fraud.
The situation ended peacefully around 9 p.m.

Okay, one with local perspective. I passed through Vegas and more on surface streets in N. Vegas for years in the truck but that doesn't make local knowledge by any means.
What do you make of the story? I understand this wasn't to search residences or private buildings anywhere but just to halt traffic of all kinds while they located a gun and made sure the situation was over, right?
Is that among the neighborhoods where cops would have reasons to worry about poking around and behind every bush and car tire without force to back them up at night? I'm just not sure where the outrage is when the outcome seems to suggest it wasn't more than they said it was?
