Gotta Love Apartment Living
I had a visitor at about 6:45 this morning. I was in the living room feeding my daughter and someone started banging on the door.
It was a sheriff's deputy looking for the previous resident; she had some civil documents to serve him with.
Made me think, what if it wasn't a friendly sheriff's deputy at my door but the not so friendly dealer the previous resident ripped off....what if it had been police with a no knock warrant......
It also made me think about the posts that I have read here and other places where members say they will shoot any individual that identifies himself as police after kicking in their door because they are not into anything that is illegal. Well, neither am I, nor do I have any pending civil action against me…the last resident of this apartment, however, did. We often talk about rules two and three, let’s not forget the fourth.
I also thought about why I carry in my home, had this actually been a threat I would have been able to respond. Thankfully it was not.
Just thought I would share. Have a great day :smile:
Find out who was there before
I understand that the tenants before me (actually I'm in a rental house) were raided by the police and a swat team. So yes, possible druggies or police could come again.
So yes, it is a good idea to find out who the former tenants were, neighbors were the ones that told me of the prior situation.
