Neighborhood Watch…or no Neighborhood Watch?
Neighborhood Watch or No Neighborhood Watch?- that is the question. Or at least one of them.
So where do you stand? Are you in favor of Neighborhood Watches, or against them? Do you feel the serve a purpose in the community you live and work in- or are they simply a bunch of nosy, busybody Gladys Kravitzes with nothing else to do with their lives but check for “foreign” vehicles along their beat?
The simmering Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case is surely causing many to give Neighborhood Watches more consideration than ever- and I’m not yet sure whether that’s a good thing.
Would you want to get “Zimmerman’d”? I wouldn’t, and I dare say few others would welcome such a thing. The merits of the Zimmerman case (or lack thereof) notwithstanding, I just fear it’s end result will leave us mourning the loss of more than Trayvon Martin.
“Neighbors looking out for each other” will rest in a casket, too.
