People of Almonte –Gerry Murphy Almonte OPP 1996

Thanks to the clippings of Lucy Connelly Post

Number 369 headed back to the station to drop the confiscated goods off. I was being either very brave or very foolish– and I didn’t feel very brave. It was apparent I wasn’t going to last long at the corner without an egg-shell shampoo. I snapped off some shots of the fire as quickly as the flash would charge, which wasn’t soon enough. Eggs started landing around my feet. The mattress in the middle street burned brighter, shards of glass could be seen in the flickering light. They were from bottles, however. A window hadn’t been torched. The sidewalks were slick with egg and the calvary, constables Gerry Murphy and Greg Dainschinko in cruiser 10-557 (no cage), pulled up

“ Have you got room for three skinned raccoons,” came Stan’s voice over 557’s radio. Read-Hanging With the Almonte Police 1984 —Joe Banks
