I live in an interesting area. Well, the people are "interesting", my word for, I’m not sure if they are scary or amusing, or both!
On the news. One of our local small towns (near my small town), had their "mayor" on. He was telling of their plan to make sure all residents are armed and knowledgeable of said guns.
He was saying it shouldn’t be a problem because he was assuming that everyone in the community already owned guns, Quote, "That’s the kind of people we are". (Anyone else nervous yet?)
Their reasoning, is that they are out of the way of any police force, and so they want to use the citizens as crime deterrents. He said, well, think about it, if you were a criminal and knew that we were all armed, ready and willing to use them against you,… would you come to our little town?
Criminal’s nothing, I’M not gonna want to go to their town!
On second thought, they might be better off being a community without police. One of our neighbors was recently busted for growing pot in their home. Someone anonymously turned them in. Thing is, our local "good ol boys" (aka PO leece), found a bottle of cough syrup in the house, and 1 other ingredient that is used when making meth. They weren’t together, and the family does have children, BUT, they are now being charged with making meth! There was no other evidence, no cooking equipment, no smells, no bio-hazard clean ups, just some children’s cough syrup. Can we say, over kill? Can we say, IDIOT police force and D.A.?
I feel so bad for their boys, really sweet kids.
Gotta love small town life. BIG HUGS, Steph
