Forest Knolls gets a posse

2006-07-31 14:29:35.612455+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

A few weeks ago I wrote a little ramble about Patriotism and Participation out here in the San Geronimo Valley that got linked a little bit.

Last week Charlene and I were hanging out in San Anselmo, and someone in San Anselmo Coffee Roasters[Wiki] mentioned an incident in Forest Knolls where a woman got dragged by a truck. As I heard more it sounded like she'd blocked the road to yell at the driver, and that others in the area had come to her aid, and I I wondered "huh, white GMC?", because I've seen such a vehicle several times pull stupid maneuvers out on Sir Francis Drake coming down White's Hill.

The Point Reyes Light article confirms this, describing the initial incident, and then the posse which formed and trapped the perpetrator in his house until the police could arrive:

“There’s a lot of low-level crime here and when the vigilantes come around with sticks it’s a good thing,” said Forest Knolls resident Craig Swift.

Yeah Vigilantes!

When the local E. Main street crowd figured out I called the cops AFTER I did what I could (legally?), their behavior changed.
