So the police will come runnin'?

The hubby & I are on our way out of town for a little R&R. On our way
out we had to stop at the storage unit to get some dive gear. As we
pull through the gate, we notice that about 30% of the units' doors
are thrown up. Since it's 5 am, dark and there's no one around we
get a bit suspicious & call the police. Response time? 12 minutes--and
we were in town. When the officer does show up, he's an ass hole and
wants to know why we were suspicious in the first place. If you are
one of those folks who believe that citizens have no need to defend
themselves because we pay taxes for the police to rescue us, you might
want to rethink that. I thought this was a prime example.

  1. 12 minutes isn't too bad. The last time I called the cops, they never even bothered to show, and this was while people were chiseling out part of my driveway.

    The city building inspectors were a little better about it. They at least showed up, but after they left the people went right back to where they were. At least they stopped chiseling my drive. But they did try pulling down part of my fence, that or dug up the survey marker, I'm not sure which.

  2. It's 5am, and 30% of the doors are open. Now, why would you be suspicious of that?

    Unless 30% of the units' owners are also there and dealing with their stuff, that's something the cops should be interested in.

    Yeah, why carry a gun when cops take 12 minutes to show up and are 100% on the ball like this guy? LO freakin' L.

    Storage burglar might want to eliminate witnesses, that's why, and bullets travel a lot faster than cops (or phone calls).

  3. Fuck that. I'm from Texas. We defend ourselves. It's the most rednecked thing I'll ever say but I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
