    Yeah, I know, another Bad Richmond! thread from me.

    Safety in numbers. Yeah. Safer bets that the criminals will get more valuables from more than one or two government employees not allowed to provide their own protection. I bet even if they do start walking in larger groups, and this happen and the group fights back rather than simply trying to convey "oh that's 4 people, we don't wanna try that" image by simply being in a group... they'd all lose their jobs.

    3 letters: CHP.

    If I took a job like that, one thing I would NOT be is 'unarmed'.

    If a census/government worker carried on the job, assuming they did not have to go into a federal building for their job, would it be just an employee policy being broken or a law as well?

    I would imagine it would just be work policy broken but I wouldn't put my life on it.

    With that said, they could not pay me enough to walk around and harass people for info that I feel is mostly unconstitutional anyway. If they knocked on my door and asked for anything other than "how many people live here" id say robbery would be the last things they would be worried about but that's for another forum.
