    I love when cop lovers say that without them we would have anarchy and the world would tumble into chaos with immediate rioting and suddenly everyone would become a mass murderer.

    I mean, I'm not saying that wouldn't happen. We just got lucky this time.

    I was there! I was on Broadway watching the second part of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child when the lights did a weird flicker and after awhile of waiting someone went out and announce they were unsure whether the play would come back on and then later they announced it was definitely off. People flooded the streets, but the billboards oddly still worked. My mother complained about all the people taking selfies in the streets. We got to the hotel and we're relieved that we did not have to walk up 17 flights of stairs to get to our hotel room. The lights didn't come back until midnight.

    Did they never have any black outs before that they don't have any generators as backups? Because if there were, then people will definitely flock at their store....
