26. Try wrenching some common sense into your head.
Were they in the front yard pointing at cars passing by? Sure, call the cops. Were they in their back yard or inside not bothering anyone and a neighbor saw them and called the cops? See what I mean? Context is EVERYTHING and this "news" story has none. We do not know what they were doing to earn a visit from the cops.
