Read some of the threads here and you will learn that some OCers have had problems in some areas. Mark Marchavia (aka MEM) was arrested in the city of Gonzales after a shopping trip to Tanger Mall. He sued the Gonzales PD, settled for an undisclosed amount and has become to many the face of OC in La. Others, including me, have been asked to leave businesses and a few have reported being harrassed by LEOs.
Spend a few hours reading the threads here and your questions will be answered.
