    Re: Reporting Criminal Activity

    It really really depends.

    If I believe there is imminent danger, I will always move to action.

    There is only one instance I ever called the police and it was a suspicious dude offering this thing (can't really describe it) to people and telling them to come closer and was being incredibly aggresive.

    If you neighbourhood is a gang neighbourhood, chances are the cops know and they can't do **** all about it.

    Shots fired. You better ****ing believe I'm callin the cops, but I if I can hear those shots from the 31st floor... there's others calling that's for sure.

    Neighbour beating his wife... well. That's always a toughie to get involved in, but If I had seen sufficient proof, visually that it was happening, you better believe I'm telling the authorities about it.

    Beating a child. ****, I'd find it difficult to not walk in their and beat the parent down myself. That **** ain't right. But there's a difference, I was spanked and I turned out ok... mostly

    All I have to say atm.

    Absolutely to all of the above, although as people have said, in areas where shooting outdoors is legal, or during hunting season where it's legal, then certainly not. Locally though, since it's not legal to do so, yes, I'd call for that too.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Yes to all of the above, except possibly drug sales. It would depend on who we're talking about. Gangbangers and such dealing on the corner, hell yes. Some redneck selling weed out of his garage, I don't care. My response is dictated by who is involved, since I have no problem with adults buying substances to injest in their own bodies. Gangbangers however bring a lot of extra baggage, some entrepenur with a minature greenhouse in his basement doesn't.
    Slipping into madness is good for the sake of comparison - Unknown.

    I have to agree with Mr. Clown on this one. For most of the examples yes, I would report such activity. If some middleschooler was selling weed in the neighborhood, I could really care less.

    Hell no . I have a scanner and most of the calls are fellow rat bastards callin about peoples kids not bein in seat belts. NO to your police state good citizenship tattle tale society. I used to work with a guy who wanted full day kindergarten so the kids could get taught better ; because he said the parents wouldnt do it. See its that - The inability to just MIND YOUR OWN DAMN business thats got us in so much trouble.ANYWHO- Stop tellin on people and start relying on the good that men do not the damage that comes from being a Citizen suckmister.

    I'm glad you live in Indiana. It makes no difference to me that you wouldn't report these things. But it makes a big difference to me when you call people who are concerned for their neighborhoods Citizen Suckmisters. (Whatever those are.)

    What "good that men do" shall I rely on when someone shoots me in front of your house, and you don't call the police? 'Cause you're mindin' your own damn business.

    None - he probably was the one who shot you, for trespasin' on his freshly mown grass/or whatever.

    Re: Reporting Criminal Activity

    Sorry MaggieD But no Dice. Enough of using government to get you off the hook when the issue is accountability your good neihbor policy means you keep your hands clean and let the MAN handle it. Mine states- If someone bothers MaggieD she needs help in front of my house. I get called into action- its my good neighbor policy.( It should be yours also)
    It has nothing to do with telling the state anything. It has to do more with showing you I care and am willing to get involved for your sake and that of the community and to send a message this is reasonable behavior for GOOD CITIZENS. I think I meant earlier= SUCKMYSTERS. I just made it up so I didnt mean MISTER . I do thank you for your post .
