while dining at McDonald's in the San Francisco, CA Bay Area tonight. Two thugs came in with guns as we were ordering, so as they were busy with their take-over robbery, I took my iPhone out and took about (6) pictures and called 911 and spoke to the police dispatcher via my iPhone BT as I moved towards the side of the restaurant, so the thugs couldn't see me talking on my iPhone. Well, long story short the police arrived about 3 minutes too late. I was able to run out the side door and watch the thugs run across the street and get into a burgundy colored SUV and head to the freeway onramp heading eastbound at a high rate of speed. The police asked me to email the photos to their detectives robbery/homicide unit email address, which I did in a matter of seconds. Then I had to turn my iPhone over to them, but will be able to pick it up tomorrow morning, or maybe tonight after their photo technician can photoshop and enhance the photos. Gawd, never leave home without your iPhone! I don't recommend doing what I did, to anyone! I just realized the opportunity to help out, b/c I was not in harm's way, nor were the other (5) customers and employees as we gathered on the side of the restaurant. Waiting for my iPhone to come home!
