12. I'd be appreciative...
I think the police officer was just trying to be nice. Too may people today don't get involved and many will watch when they see a crime happen, espeically if it's one person beating the snot out of another.

Always be worried about burglars. This isn't Canada or any other civilized nation. This is America, land of opportunists.

As much as I have my own quibbles against cops (they'll stop me for having a bluish-white light over my rear license plate that's offensive to nobody and too low to the ground to be seen as official, but I've seen Chevy trucks sold with far brighter, unfettered BLUE lights on both front and back that should have cops from miles around pulling them over yet don't, not to forget the cops who'll use their duty lights to get through red stoplights...), but the one who left you the tag is one I'd love to say "Hi" to.
