Well, That's Unusual...

A local woman had two men force their way into her Great Falls home and hold her at gunpoint while they ransacked the house for an hour. At the end of the story, a local police officer said the "whole incident is really unusual."

Call me an alarmist, but if I had been held captive at gunpoint in my home for an hour (or if I lived close to the woman who did...which I do), I would hope to see a little bit more urgency in the voices of those charged with catching the bad guys. "Scary as hell," maybe. "Frightening," for sure. "Every person's nightmare" is a safe bet. But "unusual?"

My but those folks in New York had an odd bit of luck on 9/11, eh?
