The helicopters' noise was unbearable.
I wonder what the heck NYPD can see on roofs!!! My idea is that they are only testing our patience and making our lives more difficult. Obviously NYPD follows orders from follow orders coming from a higher hierarchy system. I guess the intention is to carry out mass neurosis. Enough already!
