I doubt if many white vans come down into your parents' basement. But who knows? I'm sure white is the only color you allow down there.

The only thing I'm defending is a person's right to due process. If a reactionary little punk like yourself sees a white van driving slowly through a neighborhood you'll decide that you are the police. Guess what? You're not. If you drag someone out of a car and beat them up, you are no worse than the worst criminal you scream about on here.

If you see such a van doing anything suspicious, take down a license number and call a cop. All your rambo posturing would do is get someone hurt or killed and probably the wrong person.

This isn't Halo or Call to Duty or any of the other x-box games. It's real life with real consequences. Report the person and they may go to jail. Attack them and they drive away to menace someone else's neighborhood.

Calling the cops does not always get a response. I saw two guys in a junker rolling in my area at 4:30 A.M. one morning on my way to work. I called the cops and they asked if I saw them doing anything. The answer was no since I was following them. The police would not send a car, I followed them thru the area till they found the way out and got back on 680. They were up to no good and just a cop stopping them would send a message. They had an out light and thats all the cops need to make a stop. The cops could not be botherd that day. The dispatcher failed at her job and failed the citizens that day. Whats going to really happen to bad guys, get a lecture from a judge, visit with friends and be out in a few days or weeks. Did you also know that Alamo and Danville are easy places for people to make quick money? Thats the word from Martinez, they come straight here when they get out to get items to sell and get back to their old ways. Who knows what the guys were doing in the van, that could have been nothing but the kid was alert and that is good.

Master, I hope you are out there.

Bummer, they locked the other thread about our schools. I was hoping you could help me find out who is suing the district and more specifically one of the elementary school principals. Can you help? I've search the web, but haven't been able to find any details. One thing I can't stand is hearing word of month rumors. I want facts.
