Mine was "observing" 2 rundown houses, side by side, in a rough section of KC. I was told to back up in through the fence and back up next to the building and shut the gate. I had a building on both sides and to the rear..and a little fence in front of me, to keep the bums and dopeheads out of the buildings and away from me. WOW....one way in and one way out..!

Wasn't armed either although I had my "little" can of liquid hell and a rather sturdy piece of metal aka bat.

And to top it all off, the radio that they gave me worked for an hour into the 10 hr shifts and was done...so if something happened, I was SOOOO on my own!

Being a former US Marine...thats a good thing...no witnesses (evil grin)
