How do you find out what's happening while your LEO is on shift? Over time I've read enough of y'all's blogs to know that sometimes our well-meaning LEO will quickly text and say "going to the hospital, be home late" and then ....... nothing........ for far too long, leaving you concerned that he's in the hospital with who-knows-what wrong and who-knows-what-will-happen while he's there. Maybe he's taking a suspect, or it's for someone else..... My point is, when something's going down, sometimes you find out from your LEO, you watch the news, or (my new favorite) twitter.
Some time ago there was a big protest during one of DH's shifts, and I was combing twitter for updates. It was nice to know what was going on. I figured out the hashtag the protesters were using and got lots of lovely updates. The news had some info, and of course, DH was completely out of touch so I heard details from him after the fact. I really appreciated knowing what was going on via twitter -- from the protester's side of things. Kinda humorous that I was keeping tabs on DH via the "enemy".
So, when your LEO is long overdue home for some high-profile reason, what do you do? Do you bury your head in the sand and wait for the details until he gets home so you don't worry yourself into an ulcer? Do you flip through every news channel to get the news from every outlet possible? Do you comb twitter, facebook, or your town's gossip blogs?
