Had an issue involving our apartment complex this night.
Guns involved, but thankfully not required. Ug. I'm heading for bed.
Before I go, however, I'm going to enjoy some comfort food - buttered bread!
Let me guess... this is the game where we have to guess?
It was a suspected domestic violence issue. From what I gather, I have no idea if it was or not. The point of my post is that my neighbor knew me to be an OC, and elicited my help in determining what was going on downstairs. We called the police, and they responded.
I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

Was your neighbor also armed? If not, why? If so, do you know him well enough to trust him in an armed encounter with someone involved in a domestic assault? Does he have the training or mental fortitude to be able to handle what you may encounter by injecting yourself into a potentially violent situation? I may like my neighbor but I don't know if I would gun up and walk into something with him.

Him: Hey, neighbor, bring that gun I know you carry to this domestic disturbance in 1C.
Him: Well, at least post about it on OCDO.
Your neighbor didn't want to call the police without assistance?

U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
"Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
Here in Colorado, a DV charge is a one-way ticket to Azkaban when it comes to obtaining or renewing a CHP. Possibly rightly so, but sometimes people simply have heated disputes which don't actually cross the line, yet may be mistaken for doing so.
Yep.I tend to find out what's going on first before jumping to dial 911.
It was an occasion best served by calm, not action. Had action been warrented, I've absolutely no doubt he'd have been able to handle it. I think in part he was seeking both a second opinion as well as a witness before we called things in.Does he have the training or mental fortitude to be able to handle what you may encounter...
Some folks on this forum are wound up tight enough to warrant tuning.
So, please keept the comments coming! And thank you for them. As I've said before, I'm learning as much from the comments of others as anyone.
