Keep the noise down! Music, barking dogs have neigbors feeling ...

Oh great, I understand this is a problem, but people are being robbed, burglarized, women beaten, children abused, property vandalized,and you think the major issue the police should worry about is loud music???

It's a shame that folks have to try to legislate what is effectively respect for and consideration of others.

Annoyed is on to something - it is a silly waste of law enforcement's time thanks to inconsiderate or self-grandiose people.

Encourage all these loud folk to purchase a BAT. Then allow LCPD to handle it from there.

Our neighborhood and those that surrounded us worked dilligently to get that noise ordinance passed into law. The law is in place..let's use it!
We had to stop the loud noises day and night from drug induced parties to loud cars traveling in and out of one residence. I swear to you every vehicle in the city of las cruces with no mufflers came in and out at all hours of the day and night. It kept everyone on the block from being able to sleep. We made sure our PD new what was going on. We made sure they kept a presence in our neighborhood. It took quite a while but we were able to put an end to it and get them out of the neighborhood. Your best bet is to set up a neighborhood watch program, everyone or as many as possible need to get involved. After that you will see improvement.

Speaking of bats, did the LCPD shoot to incapacitate first, or just unload whatever they had on the guy?

People in Las Cruces complain about everything a few years back it was wind chimes. If you don't like noise go to your nearest space port and get a ticket to mars.

These people parting all night are likely on coke and meth. The money to buy the drugs is often stolen, gained from illegal activity, or coming from the mouths of abused or abandoned children. When they return home they abuse their spouses and children, and all the while having not respect for others property or rights. Its all one big circle. And if that circle is in your neighborhood then yes you will want something done.

I've been complaining for almost 4 years now about my neighbors and their ridiculous chihuahuas that bark incessantly, get out of their yard daily and scare the school kids walking home from school. They only get a warning each time. 4 years - countless warnings. I've given up.

From experience, we know that ignoring the problem doesn't work. We tookout facing windows, moved our sleeping arrangements. Our past noisy neighbor was distributing drugs to our neighborhood kids, robbing the neighbors, bootlegging utitlities, and a real pain in the.... to all the city officials. These people knew all their legal rights and got away with harming others in multiple ways. The neighbors had to get together and go to city hall to stop all the nuisance dog barking. They moved away, and the drugs and the burglaries did also. Why do criminals usually have "plus" dogs out of control more than anyone else on a property? Ask yourself that when you say this is a trival matter.

Actually, this seems like a codes enforcement issue, so regular patrol officers shouldn't be involved (though they could be).

For noisy neighbors, just keep calling the authorities. Eventually the neighbors will tire of the visits or fines.

It depends on the guy with the bat. Was he just trying to incapacitate the officer with his bat or unload with a home run?

Do you see the problem, you clueless moron?

I think the city and county need to adopt a "zero tolerance" to noisemakers. I understand when the cops answer a domestic dispute, someone always goes to jail on the FIRST call. That's what they should do to enforce the noise ordnances. Otherwise this is going to keep getting worse until it turns violent all over the place. I see it coming.

Deuced, the content of your reply to my comment negates your insult.

I was not there, and neither were you most likely. All we can do is raise questions that hopefully, someone there can answer so we have better understanding of what ocurred, and the potential to identify a better course of action for our public servants n the future. This could also serve as a teachable moment for those wishing to "carry a bat to a gun fight" but it is doubtful anyone that would do so would bother thinking before acting...

Next door jeez when my neighbor cranks it up you can hear it over a mile away. I call, the cops come, music goes down till the next time. Out of a 20 homes this guy affects Im the only one that calls. The other neighbors are afraid of him.
His music was so loud one time it was moving the water in my fish tank! Yet when the cops came he tried refusing to turn the music down,almost got him arrested.It is a sheer lack of respect for anyone else.

The class and culture of the people who live here is pretty low.
We have neighbors who's dogs bark all the time and the city has done nothing about it. We have called many times with no success.
We have had success with the party animals. it took two calls to put an end to it!

I live near Dona Ana. I have three dogs. They do not bark. Don't get me wrong, they bark, but I do not have the incessant "I am barking to mark my territory" barkers. My neighbors on one side have four little dogs that bark if I am outside. My neighbors on the other side have four little dogs that bark-whenever. My neighbors behind me have at least purchased bark collars, but their dogs don't care. So they bark and I get to see the little red lights go on their collars. I give them credit for trying.
I don't get it, if they have all these dogs, let them in the house. Socialize with them. OR give them away. But leaving the dog out back to irritate the crap out of those of us that live in their yard is just rude and inconsiderate. I'd complain, but then they would know it was me, all my other neighbors have barking dogs, and their brains have learned to tune it out.

This is the low-class behavior that Las Cruces is known for. I'm sure some of it is alcohol or drug-induced behavior, but a lot of it is just how people without education or concern for others behave. Las Cruces deserves its reputation.
