Do you know what eventually happened? I would like more information on this stupid, stupid mess, taking up the time of eight officers, while the man was on his own property minding his own business.

2nd Link explains why the officer was there. Most citizens would simply comply recognizing the cop was there doing his job but not these days in certain communities and or so many people.

Today, so many want to argue their rights in the streets instead of just responding to a simple request because they immediately go to this "I know my rights" defense. It's dangerous....

Are they right? Well, yes and no. Sure, the guy was on "his" property and yes he as not doing "anything wrong" but when police have had numerous calls of thefts in MY neighborhood I would certainly WELCOME their additional patrolling of my neighborhood and if they wanted to make sure I belonged where I claim I do but again, that is me.

How did we get here? Well....honestly, I think the main culprit are the media and politicians who are bent on sowing seeds of dissent and distrust in order to gain or remain in power and of course lets not forget, there is LOTS of money in sowing this kind of division.

I don't know the answer but the way things are going one thing is certain..more and more of the "good cops" are either going to leave or just never apply for the jobs because who in their right mind would want to subject themselves to the abuse and lack of support along with the constant threat of violence and or criminal charges being levied against them at the drop of a hat? Answer...nobody
