Nope, not for me, but I did think so in a momentary bout of paranoia ("oh no, their database flagged me--they saw my anti-government posts on ar15.com, noticed that I order a lot of goods from a place called ammoman.com, subscribe to Shotgun News, and there were some recent NICs checks, not to mention my most recent editorial in the newspaper calling for lower taxes and less government"). Actually, someone is being evicted and the landlady says it's "routine" to have an officer hang around for a couple of days. Ha! Whoever was evicted must have made some threats. It's troubling to me that for such a small town, we have enough police on duty at any given time so that one can be stationed outside an apartment while someone is being evicted. The force size is not in proportion with the town size, methinks. No wonder the taxes here are so high! The woman in the office seems to think that a heavy police presence is a godsend. She even wants to do some touchy-feely "outreach" sessions with the tenants--you know, the ones where they encourage you to call the cops whenever you see anything unusual so you can snitch on your neighbors. I told her I didn't want to participate in those. I'm sure she's now suspicous that I'm selling drugs or peddling the kiddie porn or something. Having nearly been the victim of some serious violent crimes in the past, I was unable to impress upon her the high likelihood if something does go down, even the cop across the parking lot will be too late to prevent it. I suppose an apartment office manager must have to be at least a little scared of the tenants she evicts, but again, here is someone who is not taking responsibility for her own safety. It's the victim mentality. Why is common sense so uncommon these days?

You need to call Citabria7GCB, he can help repel and keep anyone from bothering you! His dad is a Houston policeman who has [b]clips[/b] in his gun. He was in shootout with a bad guy, shot the bad guy with his P220 and stopped him. Knowing someone like Citabria's dad could come in handy? What does this reply mean? Absolutely nothing...I'm just playing with one of the kids here. [:D] Later, [b][blue]NAKED[/blue][/b]

Okay, now I know something isn't kosher around here--today there were 3 police cars stationed here. What the hell?

Cop is stationed at the office building my wife works in. Some guy was let go and he made threats. Cop on duty has been there for a least a week says he'll be there two more.

Maybe they're being forced to watch the place, but are really bored and could use some company. Why don't you go take them a snack and something to drink, and engage them in cnversation to while away the hours? I'm sure they'd like to talk about their guns, and would love to hear your views on government, law enforcement, the recent FBI shooting of that kid, and any other topics on your mind. I've heard that most police officers are pretty conservative, and would enjoy discussing their views on the militarization of the police, as well as their personal positions on the possible consfication of weapons from "civilians" if the government ordered them to do that. Waddya think? Go for it! [:D]

Back when Klinton was doing his small town America tour,I had the opportunity to speak with a Secret Service agent, I tryed to engage him in conversation but he was, to say the least, a little reluctant. I asked him who he voted for and he just laughed and shook his head saying he couldn't answer that, he started to walk away and I said Hey that's ok I didn't vote for him either ! [:D] 007

They might have to legally be there. I've helped a friend, who is a maintenance man/property manager for a local apartment complex, a couple of times with evictions. The police serve the papers and have to stay until all of the personal items are out of the rental unit and if the renter is there, until they have left the property. It could take five minutes, if the place is empty, or take us hours if the person left everything they own. We have to place all of the stuff on the side of the road. Of course, the hanging around for a couple of days part is still strange.z
