Police Scour Southview Drive

This morning when I left the house to drive to work, I noticed a Peace Officer SUV stopped in the middle of the street. As I walked to my car that was parked along the island of the cul-de-sac, they backed up about 3 houses worth then took off. This in itself did not seem overly weird to me, so I continued on to work.

Immediately when I pulled onto Southview Drive from the street I live off of, near the Southview Community School, I saw a police car driving down the street, and further down Southview towards Dunmore Road, I saw another police SUV (not the same Peace Officer) going alleyways. As I came to the Southview/Dunmore intersection, I saw one more police car waiting for the lights to continue on and join the fray.

Four police officers on their own might seem coincidental, but when they are driving up and down alleys in a seemingly coordinated manner, it seems like there must have been something going on.

    We recently moved from an apartment right in the area of the Southview School – Southview Drive intersection, and now are in Crestwood Mobile Home Park.

    Before we left the apartment building earlier this month I shut my computer down due to being hacked by some wireless system (I don’t use a wireless network for that reason).

    Sean, there are some shady characters in that area that are now looking for someone to become their new victim, and it ain’t us anymore. Finally.

    Gotta protect your router, Dean. Usually turning off the SSID Broadcast works fine for protection (disables the wireless broadcasting of your routers name). But you can also password it and whatnot; although if you only have one computer, doesn’t matter much.

    There are shady people everywhere, but I’ve never had a problem in this city yet with anyone. I used to leave my car unlocked on Res at the college for like 2 weeks at a time from forgetting to lock it and never had an issue. It just seemed peculiar that there were a bunch of police officers driving around that morning.

    Thanks, Sean. A few years ago I had my Shaw modem upgraded and the tech had trouble integrating my ancient D-Link (non-wireless) router into the system.

    I made the fatal error of relying on WindowsXP’s software Firewall and the hacker went through it like nothing. He/she ended up obsessing about my computer time and would assign each new task/program I started a priority of 0 so that System Idle Process would be maxed out waiting for some process to be started. Never mind unsubscribing me from various newsletters – especially Spiritual.

    Now the D-Link is back in operation and merrily blinking along. Hard lesson learned; get too comfy in today’s world.
