neighborhood watch


at approximately 5 am this morning we were awaken to a noise that sounded like a crash. since the recent events (a.k.a my car getting stolen and a few months ago cops searching our home) we're a little more sensitive and quicker jump if something is happening. we searched our bedroom windows and saw nothing but holly and i decided to check the parameter to assess the situation. we decided it didn't sound like just some garbage cans being knocked down but it surely sounded like metal to metal (cars colliding) on our street. we sneakily didn't turn our porch light on but searched the street to make sure holly or elba's car wasn't crashed...

we didn't find a thing on our search but as we got up to our porch we saw a likely suspect walking across the street from the grocery store. we spied on him as he passed with his cigarette in hand. then out of nowhere he started to run so we bolted out and watched him run down the street to an apartment complex down past our street. we decided it wasn't enough evidence to call the cops but we've got our eyes out. i felt safer with a partner and i think we may buy guns as our next step to keep our neighborhood safe. our neighbors don't even realize the protection and expertise they're getting

Wow, Jessie. That's crazy. You live in a sketchy neighborhood.

PS. It's perimeter not parameter.
