So last Friday when I left for work I noticed 3 police cars and a couple unmarked cars at a house across the street and a couple doors down from me. Their garage door was open and there were several people standing around in the driveway. Thinking it was probably a break in or more vandalism I just went ahead to work more than a little concerned about the shithole I live in.
Later that morning my mother called to give me the scoop. She was talking to another of our neighbors who apparently had gone over to find out what was going on. He said that the police raided the house and found a huge stash of guns. I don’t know if they found anything else since the cops weren’t telling him much (which sucks as I think we have a right to know what we’re living with). God only knows what else was going on in that house, especially considering the area of the country we’re in. While he was there he saw the Crime Scene folks taking pictures and doing their thing. As a corrections officer he pretty much knew what he was seeing and he said there were all kinds of automatic weapons and assault rifles in the pile. He was worried which of course worries me.
Of course there was nothing in the paper about this since we’re not the upper class areas. It really pisses me off that this shit goes on. It pisses me off that my mother and I and our neighbors don’t feel safe in our own homes. But what can you do when our government doesn’t seem to believe in protecting law abiding citizens.
