There was a programme on ITV a couple of months ago where a British cop joined a squad car in New York, within minutes they were involved in a gang war fight, 15-16 year old guys were shooting at each other, one was seriously injured before the cops got there, it happened at around 4am, when the cops arrived, they all disappeared, vanishing down alleyways, the one that was shot, recovered in hospital after the removal of two bullets, the US cops said it was a fairly quiet night!
