CITIZENS ARREST!

So---you might wonder---how does the Fort Worth Code enforcement find out your car is parked in the grass?  It turns out there are various "volunteer" neighborhood patrol cars.  They have magnetic signs on their doors and drive around--checking out how you are maintaining your property--where you are parking---etc etc.  Sort of reminds you of "Big Brother"---only without the enforcement power.

They call the city code regulation department and report the problem---then you have a visit from the official regulation guy.  NOW---I totally understand trying to maintain the integrity of your neighborhood, BUT wouldn't it be nice if you stopped by your neighbor's home before calling the code police?  There might be extenuating circumstances such as a new baby and a mother staying to help for a while.  

Next thing you know the they might just pull up in your drive and yell,

"CITIZENS ARREST---CITIZENS ARREST!!!!"

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
