  •  Here is an Ironic Incident (15+ / 0-)

    We have a neighborhood watch managed by the street's resident busybody who spends most of her time staring out of front window noting everything. Our street has one Black family. Last week a White guy knocked on our door asking about our Black neighbor. Apparently he was trying to Serve Papers on a Civil Suite to someone who lived there. We played dumb, as did the other neighbors he asked, so he decided to camp out in front of the house and block their driveway apparently willing to wait all day.

    Next thing we know, 5 police car show up on our street (curtsy of the neighborhood busybody). Eight police offices spent a half an hour trying to get him to leave and finely got him to move down the block.  So there you have it. A bunch of White cops harassed a White guy in front of Black family's house. And yes, I realize what a ridiculously safe area I live in that the police swarm the area over something so trivial.
