Hmmm is a registered user.

I wonder how this would've been handled in, say, a neighboring city.

The party with the weapon would be in jail without bail.

Be realistic, in most cities, the cops would have blown the front door and gone in with assault rifles and itchy trigger fingers.

Actually in most cities they would have activated their s.w.a.t. team and resolved the situation like pros. According to Google PAPD has a s.w.a.t. team so I wonder why they were not used??? This sounds rather peculiar.

From the radio communications I was listening to, it sounded like the situation was handled very well. I fell asleep before they called it a night. Boring is good.
