On a serious note this is Texas and Yahoos like that are ARMED,gives me the feeling they couldn't pass the tests to be real LEO's so they get on a neighborhood watch feeling like it gives them a feeling of playing LEO's.I would find out who is "In Charge" and let them know they aren't LEO's and have no business confronting anybody unless they happen to see a burglary in progress.

In quite a few different states you are not allowed to detain anybody even if they are on your property, that can be considered holding you against her will and kidnapping, I would have asked them are you holding me against my will, if they say no, just go on your way, but if they say yes I would call 911 immediately, telling them you are being detained held against your will illegally that you want to press charges. It sounds like these two guys want to play police officer, they need to be put in their place before somebody gets hurt
You did nothing wrong period but they broke the law & the LEO condoned it & admonished you for not submitting to their illegal acts & harassment.
When are people going to figure out what watch means?
Everyone has an opinion & this is just mine sorry if it offends anyone.
ALSO I don't HATE LEOs I just Hold them to a Higher Standard of the LAW & nothing anyone says will change my opinion on this
I suspect the LEO gets a lot of calls from the "neighborhood Watch" . He was most likely trying to minimize his headaches. The groups do need to know they can't detain you or are you required to answer any questions. Maybe file a complaint with the Dept about the Yahoo's and they may have chat with them

I would definitely have a talk with the chief of police. Neighborhood watch groups are sanctioned by the PD. If their behavior is illegal or just offensive it needs to be corrected. Also the officer whom you spoke with needs a little coaching too, concerning the rights of citizens. Keep us posted on any future developments.
As far as the LEO...he was not as bad as I guess it sounded. He had a report and he repsonded. I had to stop for him. He was just trying to soothe over the feelings of the patrol dudes. He didn't beleive their actions were correct and told them.
As far as the nipple situation...that is under control LOL.
Just tell them it's wonderful they are out there helping Neighborhood Watch, you are out for a run, and thanks... but got to get my running in ... and keep going.

Surely this was thoroughly explained during NW training - they just don't get it and need to sit at home watching Cops.
