Thanks, Philip. Good to hear from you! Hope you’re well. We are looking at our options. While I am not personally concerned as much by the visits (although they are clearly intrusive and intended to harass, in my estimation), what bothers me most is the presumption that I am supposed to do something to satisfy them if they happen to show up while I’m not home. I am already abiding by the requirements of the law. I have no duty to respond to law enforcement simply because they show up and leave some paper on my stoop. The next time that happens, I do not plan to call anyone. Instead, I will write a letter to the sheriff and copy it to the attorney general stipulating that I will not be calling anyone ever again. We are considering having our attorney write a cease and desist letter to the sheriff calling on him to stop these ridiculous and, I believe, unlawful visits.
