Halloween night (home alone)someone came my door, I thought it was too late for trick or treaters (9:45), so I looked out the peep hole, saw a black man. Through the door I asked Who is it? He said a name, he was hard to understand, I asked What do you want? He said more stuff I could not understand. I said I am not opening my door. He said OK and went away. I watched as he left my door and went to my neighbor next door. I wasn't able to talk to my neighbor later to find out what happenend. I didn't call the police, maybe I should have.

You should always call the police when you see solicitors. I'm a police officer in anouther jurisdication but live in Pleasanton. Most solicitors come from different states go from city to city and have criminal records. I had one solicitor who come to my house who I arrested in my City. I told him in no uncertain words to come back and he didn't.
