What.  This is a HUGE problem.  I have major issues with this since the
community is unable to police itself.  This is DANGEROUS.   We have had
some issues in the past, like Susan getting sexually assaulted at a
hackmeet where it would have been prudent to call the police.  Or when
Shawn (spelling) L, was in the space.   This is just plain dangerous.
 Please do not suggest things that are harmful to the community and the
space.

A better suggestion would be to let them in but let them know that they can
and WILL be recorded from the second they come in and then do so. Again,
police are not all bad all of the time especially since we are unable to
police ourselves.
Also, a little common sense is due here.  If someone gets stabbed or
whatnot, please do call the police and LET THEM IN.  Seriously.

WHOOPS.  I failed at mail and mailed this to just Maestro.  My bad.  This
is in regards to Police at noisebridge.
