Last night, about 8:00 the house started vibrating. There was a car parked across the street and down a couple of houses with their radio just blasting away.
Upon closer examination of the car, I observed three occupants, and the car does not belong there. After 5 minuets of the house vibrating, I'd given up on their just coming by to pick someone up and was getting ready to go over and politely say "This is a quiet neighborhood, and we like it that way. Could you please turn your music down?"
Then I started running through scenarios of possible outcomes, first and foremost the driver tells me to get bent (edited to forum rules) and any number of ways to say "You gonna make me?"
In a situation like this, if they were to pile out of the car, or one of them pulls a gun or any other weapon, did I escalate the situation in the eyes of the public and courts by leaving my property, armed, to "confront" them?
