Cool!, Utah just recently did the same thing. Hope this becomes wide spread.Feb 24, 2011
This is an extremely unfortunate thing to have happen to anyone. However the United States Supreme Court has ruled that your personal safety and security is no one's obligation except that of the private citizen. No law enforcement agency or emergency services agency is under any kind of obligation to protect anyone. Please by all means research the issue. Prove me wrong. You can start by going to the SCOTUS website and going to ask.com and pasting "are the police obligated to protect me" You will be amazed at the results. There is no safe way to detect those that are hell bent on doing harm to others. The only thing you can do is be prepared to deal with the situation in a legal manner and clean up the mess afterwards. Since this an issue everyone wants to keep quiet, I will be amazed if this gets posted after being reviewed by the moderators....Posted or not. What I said is a verifiable fact.Jan 26, 2011
"Citizens in this state have a right to report to authorities someone who appears to be mentally unstable, and that person can be involuntarily committed for psychiatric evaluation for up to 72 hours."
Good idea until you find out that the person you were concerned about was found to be completely ok. Now you just opened yourself to a law suit for possible defamation or other civil liabilities. Such as loss of employment or other income related issues. not to mention causing undue mental hardship caused by being placed in a mental institution for 72 hours. Jan 26, 2011
LinMesa, If you feel they are abusing their authority then contact the bureau of real estate or the governing state housing authority and turn them in. If they are not keeping up with the maintenance as you described, they can get fined big time. Jan 26, 2011
Were seeing that out here too. Out here they are hitting the same areas also. Stores and parking garages. When people see someone working on a car they usually don't pay any attention to it. As anyone could have a car that broke down. What needs to be observed is are they working on the engine or replacing a tire? If it's not one of those areas then notify the police. At the least the person working on the car (if they are the owner) will be happy that someone was watching out for them, unless they are wanted lol. If they are not the legal owners they will run off and you get to video it and place it on you tube lol. As for protecting your car from that kind of theft. back it up against a wall or park it in a high traffic area near an entrance of the building. If at home (as there are cases here in CA where they are coming on private property) back the vehicle against a wall or the garage door. If possible park it in the garage. Jan 26, 2011
