428-438 – Calls:  Those of you who have lived or are living in rough neighborhoods, anything like this ever happen?  How do you prepare your young children for the violent world outside the safety of home?  Schoolteachers, ever have to distract the kids while something is going on outside?  Do you have a story about an anonymous hero that wasn't filmed on video that we need to know about?

443-452 – • USA Today (6/1/2011) Cops, firefighters watch on shore as suicide victim drowns.  It violated department policy for either the police or the fire department to do a water rescue, so they had to rely on the Coast Guard – but the water was too shallow for them and their helicopter was on another call, so 57-year-old Raymond Zuck successfully committed suicide by drowning just 150 yards off shore in 5 feet of water as everyone watched for over an hour.  And, it took an off-duty nurse to recover Zack's body just 50 yards off shore.  Alameda changed the policy Tuesday night.
