My personal experience was with a suburban meth lab in my neighborhood. When the feds could not prosecute quickly enough, the case was turned over to the state of South Carolina with more liberal - slower/longer - speedy trial laws. The homeowner went away right away, but the chemist hung around the neighborhood intimidating the old ladies. I had the dummy black and white parked in front of my house regularly and was allowed to open carry. The chief of police was an acquaintance/friend.
