Would you have reported this? - Page 2

post #31 of 46
Hmm... something tells me they were trying to find an address and were flat out lost... after all, we've done that "drive slowly looking at everything" thing when we are like that...

I would deffinatley have reported that! Better safe than sorry! I highly doubt they really had a reason to be there. If they did, like they were lost or something, they wouldn't have sped off! Thoes poor kids.

Absolutely! I don't think they would have sped off if they didn't have something to hide. It's sad that there were kids in the car. It would be nice if the police gave you a call and let you know something. Wouldn't it be awesome if these guys were involved in robberies before and you 'caught' them?

Still sad that there were kids in the car.

There is no way they were lost! I've been lost before but never have I spend away just because someone was watching us. No they had something to hide and they panicked. You did the right thing.

I agree, better safe than sorry. Reporting it was the right thing to do.

Yep. Sounds a bit suspicious. But you never know what they could have been doing.
They could have been looking for a place to rob, to leave their kids at, coulda been lost...etc.. But its better to be safe than sorry. And yes, you would be surprised at the places people take their children...

I would be careful in chasing someone down though, especially if you think they may be dangerous. Best to get a description of the occupants and the car than put yourself in danger. Especially if they saw you coming out of your house, MA.

BE careful.

I could not have said this better. I am impressed, but still concerned that you might be a target now. Makes me want to start leaving npr on when I leave the house......

kind of on the topic... if you want to wach something interesting about how the minds of robbers think. you should deffinenetaly watch "it takes a theif" on discovery channel sometime. its really interesting, they are former robbers that go around and find people that would be good places to rob, and they take the person into a van with a camera and screen and all out rob their house. of course the people get everything back, but they learn how to better protect their homes.

WOW you guys are GREAT! I sure wish you lived near me! I would have done something similar but probably would have ended up hurt! <sigh>

I think you did the right thing too. Gut instinct is usually a pretty good indicator of whether something is good or bad. I definitely would have reported them too.

Hmm. If they were lost, why would they run off when they saw MA and her husband? You know, if they were lost, they would be happy to see someone to ask for direction, not run off. They most likely were up to no good.

I definitely would have reported it. You did the right thing. You were awfully brave to follow them so closely. I would have been fearful of them having guns.
post #45 of 46
I wouldn't have reported it, but that's me.

You did the right thing!!! I pray those men stay FAR FAR away!
