I don't understand why you would purchase anything edible from a door to door sales person, with the exception of a child raising money for school or scouts. These people come out a couple times a year, same as the kids selling magazines.

They are as bad as the people who pretend to fix roofs and driveways! They probable belong to the same "family"! Next time you see their truck in town, get the plate number and call the cops. Maybe they'll quit coming to Highland if they keep getting ticketed here.

Do you two get on here to talk to each other? Every topic you two are screaming at each other or calling each other names? What's the deal? Don't you have something better to do?

CALL THE COPS ??? For what? Last time I looked, this was a free country that operated on a free market principle. You don't want the meat? DON'T BUY IT!!!(other people do - so live & let live).

Why shouldn't someone call the cops when someone is selling tainted food door to door??? It's not like we have masive crime in Highland. The cops spend more time catching stray dogs than they do anything else. I say call the cops and let them earn their pay!!!

you have a problem with the cops in highland? you are probably one of those idiots who call the cops for every little thing, if you idiots would not let your dogs run free(violoation of city ordinances) maybe the cops could concentrate on other crimes such as people whl bad mouth the cops(like you) i bet randy is a little weasel having a mom like you, if you don't like highland, i see no guards keeping you in highland, get out and stay out, and maybe buy some of that so called tainted meat and eat it.

I LOVE most of the Highland cops! Most are an AWESOME group of men. There are 2 cops (DT & HB) who would be better off working as Mall Cops. They don't have the respect the others do and if this was a town that had the crime stats of St Louis, both would have been fired or shot by thier own men.

If you thought my comment was disrespectful, you were wrong. I was pointing out that in a town like this where there is no MAJOR crime (drive-bys, prostitution, car jackings...ect) like St Louis or Detroit, then calling the cops for someone selling tainted meats to unsuspecting MEN is not a bad thing.

What business is it of yours to tell me that I should mind my own. Seriously... it was a question and a statement and I was curious! Isn't this another reason this site is here? Not to argue and fight with the same people on every topix? Mind your own business... serious case of internet rage.

These are the same types of people who run scams on old or trusting people and rob them blind. They are the same group who do driveways, roofs and enter you home to use the phone and rob you. THAT'S why you call the polilce! You can say "Not Interested" but do you want to be responsible for the person who can't and gets robbed? And the food is tainted or didn't you watch the News footage?

Of course, just say go away, these creeps have already got a look at you and decided whether you were worth burglarizing when you answered the door. Actually just answering the door for them gave them a good idea for what time to not to go rob your house. These creeps sell tainted meat, why would I want to take a chance on my neighbor feeding this to her kids. Call the cops is the right answer

I actually sell meat door to door. I can honestly say that I dont rip people off and dont do any shady stuff at all.I've got a peddlers permit and everything too. It just sucks when people do actually do shady stuff because then the people who are actually legitimate salesman get a bad rap as well. But I get the cops called on me all the time, Idk why, its as simple as saying no thanks and closing your door. And I'm not the type of person to come off as sketchy either so this always confuses me.

AH, you hit the problem on the head: "It's as simple as saying no and closing your door". The ones that were mentioned in the Contact2 article are the kind that don't take NO for an answer and put their foot in the door to keep it from being closed. They are also the ones that return when you're gone and rob you blind. They are the worse kind of theives, the kind you don't expect. They do many scams: roofs, driveways, found money and now meat. That is why you call the cops. They go by many names but they are the same people or groups of people the Police warn everyone about and still someone gets ripped off. It's up to the people who can say no and close the door to protect those that can't.
