Which pool is this? 🤣 Imagine having helicopter money for something this dumb. Why can’t a beat cop with a megaphone walk over?

Baltimore City: actually, we’re a police state.

Hey @Zeke_Cohen why does this happen multiple times a week?

I’ve asked BPD not to use their helicopter to chase away kids at the pool. Repeatedly. While I do worry about the safety of children swimming at night without a lifeguard, this ain’t it. Totally excessive. I’m meeting w BPD and Rec and Park next week and plan to address this.

We don't have $ for lifeguards, all that $ is earmarked for cops to fly a helicopter around the pool yelling at people to stop swimming in it
