Peddlers offering everything from magazine subscriptions to burglary alarm systems appear to be ignoring our rainy weather, angry behind-the-door admonitions to leave the front doorstep, and police warnings in order to sell their wares.
In the process, angry homeowners weary of the approach and the insistent knocking and sales pitches are calling police.
We’ve cautioned about some of these groups in the past, and they have proven to be nothing more than organized bands of young people pumped up by ring leaders and dropped off in well-off communities. Several of these contacts have not ended well for people who opened their doors.
And it appears people have exhausted the limits of their patience and are turning to police for help. We’ll see what happens.
Have you been contacted today? What was the pitch and your experience?
