You have to look at it from different angles. At the same time, how would you feel if you had an overzealous neighbor who called 911 every time you threw a party or called 911 every time you had a visitor whose car he didn't recognize? How would you feel if on a dark night, this guy you didn't know or recognize suddenly started following you around and never at any point did you know who this guy was? (If you have dangerous people on the street with guns, wouldn't you be scared that maybe the person following him was trying to kill you?)
I understand that there was increased security around there and everyone should be looking out for each other, but that doesn't give license for vigilantes to go rogue and try to be the cops themselves.
