    Man or woman yes.

    Someone who appears to be a peeping tom, prowler, or burglar snooping around your neighbor's house
    I would contact the neighbors and let them handle it.

    Gang activity in your neighborhood
    Wouldn't waste my time.

    Drug sales in your nieghborhood
    Absolutely not.

    Shots fired in your neighborhood
    etc.
    If they shot at my house I would call it in as an emergency, but there are people around where I live who practice in their back yard.

    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 .
    I'd always help my neighbor. I'd be first out the door. Right after (or while) calling 911. I don't leave it to the man, but I sure do respect they serve a fine purpose. I fully abide by the axiom of: "Remember, when seconds count, the coppers are only minutes away." Somehow, though, MaggieD -- even if she tears out onto her porch with her .38 -- even if she spikes her hair first -- doesn't strike fear into the average nutcase. ;-)
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    I have reported stuff in the past.
    When things aren't infringing on me or endangering anybody else, I don't report them.

    I'd report terrorists, or someone who's threatening others or me with a weapon, but I sure as Hell wouldn't report anything else. Those of you who'd report drug deals are sadists. I try to avoid the 5-0 at all costs; I don't like them, and likewise, I'm pretty certain.

    Re: Reporting Criminal Activity

    I would like to thank MaggieD - When I voice my opinion I fully understand that others disagree and that they can be right even if they disagree. This spirit of debate is what keeps me involved in Debate Politics- sometimes we forget we are all in this together. I would like to take a moment and say thank you, TO THE WOMEN WHO POST ON HERE. I wont let my opinion be a wedge between me and other posters on Debate Politics. So thank you for your comments and all the work you do here, FOR US LADYS it does not go UN-NOTICED!

    I would indeed report any abusive behavior that infringes on the rights of others, and have done so on a handful of occassions.

    Gang activity in your neighborhood
    Drug sales in your nieghborhood

    etc.
    The only ones I wouldn't call the cops on are the woman beating her kid and shots fired in my neighborhood. The kid beating would depend on how it was done and severity. Shots are fired in my neighborhood all the time as I'm in a very rural area - so no problem there.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
