So you can’t win. It’s either bad or worse.
One thing that comes to mind is how lenient enforcement of the law has become over the years regarding small stuff and how it seems to have spawned a greater degree in both frequency and seriousness of infractions committed today.
I agree. If they can get away with little things, they push the limits.
There was an elderly couple near here. The husband was very ill. One day a small group of kids was bouncing a ball off of their garage doors, which had glass windows. Afraid to go out herself, she called the police. When they came, the police chastised the elderly woman saying that the kids need somewhere to play. Play? Really? Since when? No respect for private property.
We have a terrible parking problem on our street. It is a very tight one way street and it is very hard to parallel park. An elderly neighbor across the street had a handicapped parking spot for his ill wife. People were always crowding his spot. He got tired of it and called the police because of cars parked over the blue line. The police came and spoke with the car owners and also reprimanded the elderly man for bothering them.
I would never want to set foot within 500 miles of such a place. Unfortunately, Dallas-Ft Worth and San Antonio and El Paso are all within that radius.
Hard core survivalists say I'm way too close to an Interstate highway, as one really should be more than 2 tankfuls of gas from major cities, so the goblins don't show up on my doorstep when the fecal matter hits the air impeller.
