Neighborhood Watch Run Amok?

Thank God this didn’t happen in Eureka, but over in Redding an overenthusiastic neighborhood patrol volunteer is up for charges that he pepper-sprayed a neighborhood resident who ran a stop sign.  Details HERE.

I generally support a neighborhood watch if the residents really believe they need it and are willing to staff it. Unfortunately, there are always a few idiots in any civic group who let their egos take over. If this creep had pulled up on MY lawn I’d take the max action allowed by the law.  Maybe this guy needs a few lawsuits as a reality check. Or Maybe the Redding police need to be more deeply involved in the programs they sponsor.
