#49 Police! Hands Up!

On our way to the Petroglyph National Monument in Albuquerque, we were misdirected by our iPhone navigator to the wrong place. The IPhone lady directed us into a nice housing development. Realizing she was wrong we started to work our way out of the development and back on our route. On our way out as we turned the corner, we stopped as our car faced a car full of kids that was pulled over to the side of the road. They were frozen with their hands out the open windows. The policeman pointed his gun at the juveniles a safe distance away from them until backup support arrived. He looked at us. We looked at him. He held up his hand at us and motioned for us to back up and get out of there.

Well, that was an unplanned experience. Never seen a policeman pull a gun and never had a gun aimed in my direction.
