Ok, I just had the first real scare of my life.. I am grateful my bf lives with me now because he has 5 guns, but it still hasn't comforted me tonight.. The following events are what transpired at around 9pm tonight: I was sitting outside my apartment talking on my cell phone and I noticed a strange car pull up.. It was a red fairly new cadillac. Two men were in it with the music blaring and windows rolled down..One man got out and went to one of the apartments nearby on the first floor.. He was in there maybe 10 minutes then came out..They sped away quickly and I believed that I had just witnessed a drug deal and thought that was the end of it...Boy was I wrong! The "driver" came back 15 minutes later, while I was still outside on the phone.. He had the windows up and drove really slowly around the parking lot..He stopped right where I was standing and leaned over and glared at me from the car. He then drove about 5 parking spaces up and parked. At this point, I ran into the apartment shaking and told my boyfriend to get the guns ready. I've had him check twice within the past hour and they haven't come back.. I'm really shaken now..I believed that I lived in a safe neighborhood.. My boyfriend thinks it was just a scare tactic.. That I have reason to be afraid but that I am getting a little too paranoid..You think his SHTF scenarios have rubbed off on me? Do I have reason to be afraid??? Please comfort me or give any kind of suggestions..

P.S. I actually work for the real estate management company who manages my apartment.. Should I mention something to them when I go into work tomorrow?? I know they have mentioned to me in the past that they have the power to evict people.. I am not saying I want to evict anyone, but I already know they are thinking of evicting a potential drug dealer in another complex already.. Or should I just not let them be aware..

I bet the idiot was high or something...Maybe just trying to jack with ya. Even when your scared crapless try your best to look calm and cool-headed (I know this is hard) this alone can make the difference between being a victim or not. I would let things cool off for a couple of days then notify the complex that there is A LOT (make it up if you have too. The more the better I say) of strange things going on at this certain apt. And see what happens. BTW keep a weapon close at hand when the BF isn't around.

1. You reacted well. You did the right thing in leaving a potentially harmful situation. Paranoia is its own reward. 2. Drug dealers don't like being watched and he may have felt you were giving him undue attention. This may have been an attempt to make the white woman fear him in future. He may have not necessarily been looking to go blang blang wifs da homies, he may have just wanted to preserve his portion of the free market. 3. He may have been looking to do you harm. There have been such instances, I am told, of negroes failing to doff their hats to white women as of late if you get my drift. An excellent web search on this very topic should include the words Wichita and Horror. 4. After reviewing documentation concerning the Wichita horror, you may be asking yourself why you were not armed. I certainly am. 5. He may have been looking to intimidate you simply for the thrill. Blacks regularly do this to white people at random these days. My Dad could not understand why some black guy on MARTA started getting verbally abusive with him and then kept shouting "White man afraid!" over and over. I had to explain that they do this as some sort of a bizarre form of empowerment preached by black racists. 6. He may have felt your staring was an invitation. Everybody wants to get themselves a pretty little blonde. 7. Your weapon is like your clothes. Do you leave the house without a clothes? Do you sit on the front porch naked? If so can I watch? Just kidding. Get your weapon and keep it handy. Be a little nervous tonight. I am glad you are well.

Sorry about what happened to your father, But that had me laughing my rear off...This call would shortly come over the police radio shortly after this incident..."Black man dead on scene...Black man dead on scene..." That has to be the strangest thing I have ever heard...What did your father do??? Back to the topic- Blonde...get them out of your complex asap. Do whatever you have to do...
Link Posted: 6/6/2002 7:17:33 PM EDT
One more thing, you are correct in your assumptions that they were black.. I honestly never saw a black person in this particular complex before, not even to visit.. I'm not being racist or anything I just never saw one in or near my complex since moving here in november and I sit outside in the parking lot alot..

My Dad, who is in his 60s and a really sweet guy was just torn that someone would act that way towards him without any justification. The guy picked on my Dad because he wanted what he thought might be an easy target, pure and simple. He didn't do anything at all. I have experienced this sort of behavior first hand. Since calling a black man a naughty name can get you imprisioned in this country, I simply pursued the free man of color on the two occasions that it has happened to me while holding a carefully blank expression. It seems to unnerve most blacks when you show no fear and they will then beat feet while yelling over their shoulders "White man afraid!" and "Come on over here sos I can fuck you up!" I told the guy who yelled the "come over" line "Slow down then! I can't run that fast!" But he didn't. I don't know why. Perhaps he was saving me from my fear.

I don't think you have a reason to be [b]afraid[/b], but you have every reason to be [b]cautious and aware[/b]. If I were you, I'd not leave the apartment alone after dark, and I'd sure as hell keep a weapon & a cell phone real handy. If anyone knocks at the door, and you're not expecting visitors, have your weapon in your hand as you look through the peep-hole. If you don't know them, tell them to go away. If they persist, again tell them to go away, and that you are armed, and calling the police. Poikilotrm has a point, btw: if people think you're off your rocker, or just don't give a damn, they'll generally leave you alone.

It may not be a bad idea to make a call to the pd to report suspicious activity, tell them what you saw, how you felt. It will be recorded. Second call to the manager of the apartment complex, leave a message about the activity. If a confrontation occurs, at least you will have documented the previous experience, and have additional justification for using deadly force. Lebrew

Am I missing something here? Did anyone ID the plates on the Caddy?[thinking] What state are they from? What's the # or partial#? [rolleyes] Description of the person that went into the APT.?...of the driver of the car?[dracula] Did anyone call the Police to express their "concern" over an unusual event (for this section of the neighborhood)?[shock] Just wondering.

exactly what i was thinking. she hasn't even witnessed a crime. at the most she's witnessed suspicious behavior. on the surface though, it would best be described as erratic. hell, for all we know he was trying to find his grandma who has alzheimer's disease and had wandered off again and was scrutinizing everyone in the dark to make sure it wasn't her. i'm glad nothing bad happened, but i don't think this, in and of itself, is cause for "very scared." just one point of disagreement, i wouldn't tell someone at the door that i have a gun. they don't need to know that unless i have to use it. heck, why give them a chance to call the cops and say, "she opened the door and threatened me with a gun." for sure, a good cop would ask, what did it look like and try to verify the story. but why point yourself in that situation in the first place?!?

dude, you're paranoid. You haven't witness a crime, so some guy drives up in a nice car and walks in and comes out quickly. Comes back 15 minutes later and looked at you. I would hardly call that a crime. What you should've done is flash him and see what happens [:D].

actually, you should've gotten your bf to flash them. [:D] That'd sure freak them out.

[size=6]JUST MOVE!!![/size=6] Why live in such a place. I lived in Humboldt Park (a bad neighborhood on the west side of Chicago), every night when it was warmer than 50 degrees I was treated to constant gunfire, some of it full-auto, as the Puerto Ricans there kiled each other. One morning I was leaving for the el to get to work and two drunk PR chicks were cutting each other up with box knives on the front lawn. I broke the lease and eventually settled in semi-rural Michigan. Now the only gunfire I hear is my own. Do yourself a favor and just get the hell out of there.

If you didn't get the license plate #, try do so - w/o jeopardizing yourself/others - if the car ever cruises by again. From your perspective, would having a firearm immediately at hand made you more safe - particularly if you didn't happen to be close to home? If so, then, assuming you don't already have one, consider a CCW (concealed carry weapon) license for yourself (if your state [u]requires[/u] a license for CCW). Some might suggest this as an "extreme" reaction, but I'd wager it's a very good reason for carrying a firearm for personal protection. I'll bet [i]homeboy[/i] had a piece (illegally) on him. If you don't already have one, get a CCW handgun you can feel comfortable using & carrying. And practice until you can use it as easily as you would drink water from a glass. Now, I'm not at all suggesting that you shoot at the first sight anyone who glares/stares at you, but I think you probably understand the point I'm trying to make. Caveat emptor: If, to the contrary, "carrying" makes you feel less at ease, then by all means, do [b]not[/b] do so. Good luck, & be strong. [heavy]

I've got a (recently new) neighbor w/ a cruiser just like this, except it has rootbeer paint. Stands way out in my "whitebread"-esque neighborhood. I laughed for a while the 1st time I saw it bounce down the neighborhood road. They also have this really nice, good-looking brindle AST/Pit Bull running around, playing w/ the neighborhood kids, & are always working on their car collection.
