It was something similar to that here , Bruce - after I reported the break in to the local law enforcement here , I asked if I could set up some sort of marker , like a paint can full of fresh flour , so when the next b&e occurred , the police would have something , like a footprint , for example to work with .The answer I got damn near floored me , the officer says " You can't do that , the paint can is metal , and it might come down and injure the person , and then we would have to charge you with endangering the safety of another individual ." It took me about a minute to get my temper down , before I could answer that . It seems that even when you're in the right , you're still wrong .
