Unfortunately, I made the mistake of telling my parent about it. Now my dad thinks I'm quickly becoming a shut-in creepy crime stalker. I also made the mistake of telling him I discovered the dispatch feed while looking for police scanners online (half because I would someday like to get one to learn the police codes and half out of pure curiosity). Both parents think I'm crazy and freaky (even moreso than before that is).
Is it really such a horrible thing to find interest in crime and crime-stopping organizations? Bleh.
