  •  The neighborhood watches around here are a (11+ / 0-)

    pretty good and useful building of relationships between the police on the beat, the police station, and participating neighborhoods. Generally, the watches disseminate information about break ins and reminders on common-sense security.

    Block captains do this. To my knowledge, there has been no "Zimmerman" effect of vigilantism.

    But I agree, there is something very fishy about the story. The thief is inside the house, with a parcel of guns, when the owner comes in with neighbors and goes upstairs? The thief runs out. Where does he go? This is a dense housing area... wouldn't some dude carrying rifles (a rifle?) be seen, even at 11:00 pm?

    And the Patron Tequila! Now, that is worth taking!
