Me too.  Where I live, is not a high crime area, but even wandering around in someone's back yard might very well have me under a police car spotlight and some questions.  My neighbors are very gracious, they let me in to check the noise from a dimmer one day.  I felt like I was invading privacy which I was.  

I wish, the powers that be would stiffen up the rules or do what ever needed so that we don't have to do this sort of thing. That is, to snoop around neighborhoods looking for dimmers and crap tv's on our own.  I don't like it one bit AND I shouldn't have to do it!
