story prompt: but the pot roast was on sale.

Chicago Sun-Times, 9-4-03

At press time, Chicago police detective Janice G. was scheduled for a dismissal hearing based on a 2001 incident in which, allegedly, she nonchalantly continued to shop in a Dominick’s store even after a customer told her that the bank branch inside the store was being held up. According to a witness, she told the fellow customer to call 911 but then she resumed shopping and in fact was waiting in a checkout line when uniformed officers arrived at the store.
