Good lord! All those incidents over a population count.Since follow-up house calls began in late April, there have been 252 incidents in which Census workers have been harmed or threatened, including 11 times when shots were fired at them and 86 times when they were threatened with such weapons as guns, axes and crossbows.
Our census taker persisted in asking us questions and said it was the law that we answer. I only told him that two adults lived in the house and to forget the rest of the questions.
I know that there are many out there who don't want the government asking questions, especially on one's own property. I'm one too. But I never would have threatened him. Just tell him to go away and close the door.
I wonder just how many of those threats listed in the article went without investigation...
