Well – as I feared. It appears the apartment residents are demanding the return of my dad. No Dean – No Peace were the shots earlier this morning as riot police had to move in the subdue the crowd.
Apparently the block party got out of hand. I know that the mayor tried to contact Tony Crouch – my brother in law. However, when they called his phone all they got was a message saying :"Out for the holidays – wishing you and your loved ones a VERY Merry Christmas"
So – my phone rang at 3 am. I could hear the tear gas canisters exploding in the background and what sounded like rushing water. A tenant from 701 sent me these images from his cell phone. It did not look pretty.
Now I am not saying there is anyone to blame here. I mean we knew my dad was leaving for months now. Just seems like the tenants were left in the cold this morning. Perhaps daddy didn’t tell them that he was leaving or perhaps the block party last night got out of hand. I have no idea.
I didn’t even know Paducah had riot police.
This was also sent to me – I guess they are demanding my dad return
I just received this photos from Facebook from my cousin Jason
My dad is on that boat this morning!
This was the view that Jason sent earlier today. Appears that there is no snow in Florida.
OK more updates as they arrive
