The problem is that it doesn't matter where you live. You can live in the best area and pay some of the highest taxes around, then all of a sudden you notice some nutters walking around on your street.
This is how it happens...that state doesn't have to say a thing and takes advantage of loop holes they have created.
Lets close down all the mental institutions and just let the crazies run amuck. Thats what our governor Engler did in the late 80s.
Now communities are faced with these transient homes for mental patients...sometimes criminally insane.
Essentially, these people can do what ever they choose and cannot be held responsible for their actions...and we fund it through our tax dollars.
Its not good!
To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.
Guarded to me in this context would be synonymous with incarceration (locked away).

That sounds about right. I have cameras monitoring my front and back yards, and guns to guard the inside.

One of them sat in a wheelchair in the driveway and wailed very loudly for hours in the middle of the night.
Worse than the patients were the caretakers who stood outside and smoked all night long. They would yell and scream, have friends over and basically party. They even caught a car on fire by throwing a lit ciggie in it.
no, it's not sad. it's life in the city. some win some lose. i guess your liberal side feels bad for all the people whose homes have lost value due to all the foreclosures.
Actually, it was way outside the city limits.

At least you have a sense of humor. To bad sarcasm does not show up in print.
