I walk downstairs to be confronted with three cops in body armor. Good thing they didn't hear me.

Also, they managed to not shoot my dog.

that's half the story...where's the rest?

That's pretty much it.

I left out the following:
Only two of them were at the front door, and the third was standing in the driveway watching the side door, and based on their somewhat relaxed attitude they did not appear to hear my joking comment.
They had parked several houses away.
They didn't draw their weapons or throw flash bang grenades. No swat team.
They were looking for someone so they knocked to inquire if I had seen said individual (I hadn't).
They left my property almost immediately upon me telling them that.
They walked back to the cars then proceeded to talk for about 15 minutes then drove away.

I can tell you about the rest of my day, but I didn't think those points were relevant either.

Cops always knock a certain way. Every time I've ever had a cop at my door I always knew before I ever opened it that it was a cop.

I certainly wasn't expecting the fuzz, so I figured it was my neighbor (who is actually a reserve officer).

Where do you live where cops knock on your door that often?

It's happened 5 or so times throughout my life. Mostly for noise complaints which all except for 1 were total bullshit courtesy of a cunty neighbor, one time to see if I could identify some guy who I apparently witnessed stealing a car, and once to deliver a summons but he had the wrong address. Every time they ring the bell and then let loose with a very authoritative "bang, bang" which would have led me to tell anyone but a cop to ease up on the door.

We actually kick cops out of my neighborhood. Gated community, roads are private and not dedicated, but once in a while a cop is seen driving through the neighborhood. HOA board members have flagged them over and told them to leave. Wish I was there.

When a break-in or worse finally occurs and "The Hills by the Oaks at Riverpoint" rent-a-cops need the real cavalry....the response time for the real cops might be found...lacking. tongue.gif

No rent a cops here either. The local cops are just bored, and like usual cops, busy bodies.

Yeah..I generally dont like cops. Very very rare for Canada: on Yonge and Elm or therebouts (Pio knows I think) just yesterday there were four cop cars all pulled up onto the sidewalk as I drove by, middle of the aft broad daylight too, and the four cops had this black dude in a doo-rag pinned and one was kneeling on his head right into the pavement. As is typical two more cop cars rip up Yonge superfast for (totally needless) backup. Maybe he had a gun (+doubtful)..more likely some drug offense and he didnt cooperate right off. Reminded me of Miami when cops in camo rousting black guys (usually for nonviolent drug stuff) out of their cars was a semi regular sight anytime you went west.

Forget the racial dynamic, as a libertarian I cant stand this shit. Possession, use, buying or selling any narcotic is not a crime against anyone.

Go arrest the liqour store cashier for fuck's sake. Oh that one is arbitrarily legal. Right. Forgot.

Send them to Red Wing. They can get paid to sit in a parking lot.

If Pio lived in Red Wing, he might get charged with a hate crime for barring police from his neighborhood. They're a protected class there after all.

Just idle curiosity, but how are they getting through the gates? Are there live guards at the gates, and if so haven't they been told aimless police access isn't authorized? Or do the cops bullshit their way in by claiming to be responding to a call or incident? Or maybe the gate guards are just afraid to disobey an order from a real copy, lawful or otherwise?

A lot of Retired Cops do security jobs, or just former Cops in general. They may also know each other from doing security work at Hotels, and Hospitals were security, and Cops interact with each other a lot.
