From today --

The Ashmond Police didn't really own a SWAT team primed for breaching a residence especially in a situation where a child might be held hostage.  They did have a negotiator on staff, but as luck would have it, Tompkins was out of state, in Wisconsin, participating in a hostage negotiators conference.  His backup, Perkins, was en route from his home, in county, but 12 miles south of Ashmond, driving like all get out on the Ponderosa highway through the wheat fields, but still mindful of a certain section of poison at the mouth of the highway switchback, titled Bambi's Black Hole, infamous as far east as Pullman for holding the suicidal deer crossing title three generations and counting.
