    I'm not using "Marshall" for elder. A real U.S. Marshall stopped by when I was outside. He was looking for a guy driving a Chevy Impala with Illinois plates. I asked what the guy was wanted for and was told he murdered someone in Chicago. WTF! I asked the Marshall why he thought the murder suspect was in my neighborhood and he said they had info that the suspect was staying in a house a half a block from mine. I don't know what happened with my neighborhood during the last couple of months. Burglers and a murderer. Must be the heat.

    No neighborhood is immune from murderers and crooks, etc.

    You're right there Ronin, we have similar problems in the UK. Where we live, I don't know if there any murderers, though there was a local murder not so long ago, but the perp was arrested, but there is plenty of crime, such as mugging, burglary, assault etc. A lot of the crime around here seems to be drug - related, with addicts resorting to crime to feed their habit.

    We live in a medium up-scale neighborhood, yet there are 3 convicted sexual offenders within 1 mile of our home.

    I watch the TV shows that re-tell murder stories, and there are doctors, bank presidents, company CEOs, etc., who murder, rape, and maim.

    I had a police stake out in my driveway for 3 days once. They were watching a house across the street and up a few doors. All my neighbours were old people so I couldn't figure out what they were doing. Then, I went to the store and missed the big bust. Cops started running down the street from all directions and pounced on this guy walking down the street. He never knew what hit him. They must have had 4 different cars in different driveways on the street. Some gang member was living in the basement suite of the house.

    Anyway, I brought them donuts and coffee for 3 days and they wouldn't even fix my parking ticket for me. Sheesh!

    Don't ya just love Canadian cops? The only thing missing is the turban.

    I read in the local paper today that the murderer the Marshall was looking for was apprehended without incident. That was quick.

    Sex offenders in the neighborhood...seems like every month there is a community meeting regarding a level 3 (most likely to reoffend) choosing to live around here. If they are most likely to reoffend, why are they released?) It gets old after a while.

    I saw it on the news last night. He murdered a lady in Chicago.
