Was I dreaming? There’s Officer Salem standing at the F train exit at Church and McDonald Avenues today, Friday, around noon. His assignment was to watch that corner.
Permanently? He couldn’t say. He awaits further orders.
Then his supervisor, Sergeant Solomon, arrived in the squad car, checking on patrol.
By 2pm Officer Salem was gone. Wonder if he’s coming back. In addition to the swiping of the teenager’s cell phone on Monday, I was told an older man was hit up the Friday before.
