The man lived in a run down part of the city. It was known to be rough, not a place you would want to be caught alone on the streets. His apartment on the third floor was run down as well, and any stranger would think he was up to no good. The man's phone rang just as he walked in the door. As he walked over to pick up the phone, it was clear he had been expecting a call. He answered it without saying a word. The person on the other end was silent for a moment before telling him, "Turn around". The man again did not look surprised. He turned around to look at his window, but no one was there. He walked over and looked out, but there was no one. His door opened behind him, and the man knew he had been tricked. Two policemen walked in holding handcuffs. "Your friends are in the car," one policeman said, "Let's go." The man went with them.
