Ah yes, the Starlight Tours. Sucks in the winter & many have died and their circumstances buried out here on the Prairies. One of my cousins had a close call with a Starlight Tour in the winter outside of Winnipeg (The police took his coat but not his shoes), but luckily an elderly couple pick him up off the side of the highway fairly quickly.
Several years ago there was a drug house across the street from my place. Due to limitation on what the police can and cannot do, we contacted SCAN (safer communities and neighbourhoods) Who have different authorities and powers than the police force does, and different resources.
After a few weeks of observation, Some of us in the neighbouring houses were given a heads up to stay off the street because the raid was about to happen….. as they had a warrant to conduct the search of the drug house…. And as they were warning me over the phone…. It was me myself that caught the fact that they had my address and the drug house address reversed. Whoopsie. Close call.
I was that one phone call away from having my door kicked in and my dogs shot, and Lord only knows what else…. just because they reversed two addresses on the same street. At the time we had a Rottweiler & my Wolfish-Husky & neither would have lived through that clerical error.

(Here they where just playing, as the Rotti hadn’t even bothered to get up. Believe it or not, it would have sounded even worse that it looked….& that’s without law enforcement kicking in my door.)

Once my dogs where shot (& between the two of them they were almost 300 pounds of animals, so they would’ve been shot), I also probably wouldn’t have lived through that clerical error. It was one of those, “Wait. What? Can you please repeat those two addresses Sir?” moments that could have gone in a completely different direction if I was just a little less on the ball in that conversation.
They had the right address’s but just in the wrong blanks .They obviously don't "confirm" addresses before raiding....not good!!
