Home Owners Association Police???
A local paper (no online version) has an article about an HOA in Manassas, VA that just created their own police division. This is the first HOA police that I've ever heard of. Is it common in other parts of the US?
The only other info I could find was on that HOA's website. http://hunterssquarehoa.com/police/
The concentrating [of powers] in the same hands is precisely the definition of despotic government. It will be no alleviation that these powers will be exercised by a plurality of hands, and not by a single one. - Thomas Jefferson
