I was like 17 and working downtown. I had went to the store during lunch and was on my way back to the office. There was this guy walking in front of me and a couple walking next to me...idk why but they all just seemed suspicious as hell. After awhile I kinda felt like the couple was following him, but i just assumed that I was making all of this up.
After awhile the guy started looking back at the couple every few steps. He started to speed up and so did they. All of a sudden the guy took off running and the couple blew they're cover and went after him. Within seconds the area was swarming with fed vehicles and they had him in handcuffs.
That was some crazy shit. In dc I would often see a random black car that appeared to be normal turn on sirens out of nowhere and take off but i had never seen anything like that.
I think some shit is about to go all the way down...
I have seen a high speed chase...like the kind where they throw out the spike strips...dude was riding on the rims sparks were flying everywhere! I was shook as shit as they were coming up behind me on the interstate...I just knew they were going to hit my brand new car!

I see at least 1-2 raids a year just by riding my bike around at odd times. It's kinda funny to see dudes in hoodies, timbs and fitteds locking a dude up. Thug dude sitting there with cuffs on looking DEFEATED. Thing is the city cops only seem to use stereotypical American vehicles, so it's kinda easy to spot the tinted-out Ford Taurus (who the hell tints out a Ford Taurus but cops?)
I think the oddest was the time we were going to grab some green, and the spot we were heading to got raided just as we were pulling up. Like I literally stopped at the stop sign across the street, looked at the cops jumping out of cars and running into this house a little ways away from us and asking my homie "so... is *that* where we were headed?"
Edit: This was supposed to be under the OP, and not a reply to you. Whatever now, lol. Too lazy to go edit and copy&paste this.

i wish there was a way to become a detective and skip all that beat patrol shit and go straight to undercover level i was in badlands (jasper and westmoreland) on saturday getting $300 of work done for $40 at the papi shop walked up the street to get a .75 black cherry 24oz man that shit was like walking thru a gauntlet anyway a couple of wzups and head nods got me from point a to b i get back to the shop, one of the papis telling me about all the murders on that strip. first thing i though is how the fuck you know i'm not from that strip? a nigga be thinking he blend in but he probably don't. my bubble vest was bright yellow and way too clean for a corner nigga i suppose

One time I was in Adams Morgan coming from work and I saw the scariest vehicle I've ever seen in my life. It was a van with holes on all three sides and dudes with Ak's hanging out of them in full body armor like warriors looking back and forth, as if they were expecting an ambush in broad daylight. Also it had what I thought was a movie camera on one side recording or maybe it was a weapon. It was all black, like midnight. I've never seen anything like that before or since. I don't know who was in that van but it must have been someone of the utmost importance. I can't even imagine what kinda person gets an escort like that.
But you see crazy stuff in DC that you wouldn't see other places with the Fed and think nothing of it. Ill never forget the time the Beast rolled past me in Chinatown. That shit looks like a car but it's really a tank. It made the whole street rumble like it was 3-4 dump trucks when it went past. ___________________________________________________________

used to have this youth work program. so we were working in this area called the lotment-basically where the majority of the black folks lived in this particularly city. Also where alot of drugs got bought and sold. so anyway we were working on cleaning up this field and mowing it. when all of a sudden we look up and there are swat vehicles and a helicopter doing a drug bust in broad daylight. pretty crazy shit.

there is this unmarked building near my old job. All the other buildings around have the companies clearly marked on the outside of the building. it's in the middle of downtown. all the windows are blacked out. you gotta swipe into the front door at all times. and the parking lot is heavily guarded. then i realized that only black SUVs ever come out of there. So I guess it's like acme ltd or something.
i haven't seen anyone get picked up but I have seen people being followed. i'm actually surprised that that secret service dudes are so easy to spot. you can usually tell they are like ex-military by the way they carry themselves and then you peep the ear piece.
I did see a raid a few years back. Walking to the bus stop and they blocking the streets off and there were a bunch of dudes in riot gear. You know shields and batons about to go into a house nearby. I'm still wondering why the fuck they let me stand at the bus stop knowing what was about to go down. Once I figured it out I bounced.
years ago, I was in the barbershop. These 2 dudes were in the shop also for about 2 hours waiting and gettign a cut. Soon as they walked out of the shop, BOOM, 2 officers with vests and shotguns jumped out of a truck on them.
Shit was crazy. It was like 3pm on a Saturday. Who knows how long they were out there waiting for them to come out.
17. "wtf? not like that, no, but yeah i seen undercover one-times" In response to Reply # 0
mostly lil shit like nabbing shoplifters or johns but a couple times some shit that seemed more severe.
also once i was drinking some OJ at a McDonald's in Germany and I see eight storm trooper looking MF'ers slam some kid against the window RIGHT in front of my face, fuck him up a little, search him and arrest him. he was like college aged, i dont know what he did but it had eight cops in full riot gear chasing his ass down.
And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

choque i think is more for general crowd control like during Carnaval and World Cup whereas BOPE i think is more for running up in favelas and having shootouts with gangs but i think they do each others jobs as well i dunno i just know they are some BAAAAAD dudes

I was walking my dog, in my old neighborhood (Little Five Points), and saw a couple of unmarked cars assemble in a parking lot. Dudes got out in the ATF and FBI windbreakers, and popped the trunk. They started putting on vests and checking the artillery.
One dude shot me the "nothing to see here" look, so I kept it moving.

Well, it was their actions, I just happened to be the person that found out about it.
How stupid can you be to look at CP on your work PC??? Eventually you should just expect suits to come to your desk, badges to get flashed and "You're under arrest for intentionally accessing CP" to said.

it was like something out of a movie. the first lights came on and then you saw what looked like 250 niggas just start taking appearing and running outta nowhere. then the agents started chasing them, and yeah...that shit was wild. --------------------------------------- it's true what they say...people are strange, when you're strangers.
