And when i said fortifying i meant anything for the loot/shoot signs to running patrols and that sort of thing.
Despite what was said the vast majority of the people in the GNO area left; there was little manpower for checkpoints or patrols even if anyone was a desired to do so.
This guy was recently indicted for his activity during such activity.

I did not have any altercations with the people I met. I treated everyone I met with respect and had few problems during such meetings. As for the authorities they were spread thin and reacted in widely different ways. See the earlier thread I referenced for more details.
