Don’t take the shortcut near to the governmental offices when there is a march of right wing extremists.
"explains why there were cops in the alley down my street and why there were 3 white vans without windows with guys wearing black masks driving them going down my street."
The two minutes won by the shortcut aren’t wort it.
Yes, I live near to where all the protests, demonstrations take place, so I should be used to it. I just didn’t know that something was happening until I’ve seen it & heard some light explosives in the distance.
