"2nd suspect now in custody. No other situations"- ADPS PIO (@ADPSPIO)
With an unknown active shooter or bad guy in the area, you chose a good course of action. I would have done the same.I've decided to lock all the doors and to be armed. If the police show up here, should I or do I have to let them search my house?
I cannot agree more. They force their way in to my house if they decide to enter unless I contact them and request their presence. Then most likely we discuss things on my porch or driveway.If I know that the bad guys are not in my house, I'm not letting the police in. Why should I waste their time looking where the bad guys aren't?
The last I looked, speed-enforcement vehicles in Georgia had to be marked. Can anyone speak to that?Hey Frank! For everyone else on the board, the original shooting happened right behind my house, after hearing the shots I went outside along with a couple of my neighbors in time to see Johns Creek and Alpharetta PD cordon off the road, crime scene tape off the neighborhood entrance, and then let through fire and EMS vehicles after a few minutes. From our perspective, all we could see was that there had been some sort of shooting, but after the other emergency vehicles were allowed through and private vehicles started to be allowed through in one lane, we assumed everything was over and went back inside. It wasn't until 30 minutes later or so that Alpharetta tweeted that there was still a suspect (and apparently two, now) hiding out in a house in a different neighborhood off the same road. So in theory there was an active shooter while I was outside standing around oblivious, and I certainly have to think about how I'd approach a similar situation again instead of making assumptions that the threat was over. I certainly had no concerns about interaction with the police, although they didn't come down my street checking houses. I would not have allowed officers in if they had. The only thing I did do was I didn't let my dog out off leash in my fenced in back yard today, just in case somebody jumped the fence in the course of a pursuit and decided a 75 pound lap dog was a threat. Also, protip, apparently APD, JCPD or both have a buttload of unmarked Ford Explorers, because they all showed up at once after the initial excitement. So maybe don't blow past one at speed in north Fulton.
That is for planned traffic enforcement. Speed traps to you and me. If they see you driving recklessly, they can light you up and pull you over regardless of what vehicle they are in.The last I looked, speed-enforcement vehicles in Georgia had to be marked. Can anyone speak to that?
