A friend of mine encountered a group of men at a shopping

A friend of mine encountered a group of men at a shopping and they were all watching him and of the said "FBI" when he go close. They did not pull out any credentials so he walked around them keeping a further distance away. As he passed them, one them yelled, "You should call sometime... cause your screwed." When he turned around the group dispersed in different directions.He went to his local police department and was told he had to go the department that has jurisdiction over the mall's location. When he did that he was told that since you was not actually threatened by the group further the incident was not a police matter and just a case of people being jerks. Does this response from the police seem normal? Could this be a case that they could investigate if they wanted to as harassment, disorderly conduct, etc as people going around telling others to call the police would simply create a situation of panic and confusion just as bad as calling in false 911 emergencies.Would this be a completely different situation if the group involved were really the FBI? Thanks for your opinion.

In State, the question is: if you were hypothetically seeing

In Washington State, the question is: if you were hypothetically seeing a sheriff or law enforcement vehicle several times every trip you took with your car, say to the store or work, does this - is this average? What is the average? Does it mean you have been driving too far, driving the wrong streets to get there, speeding, been to court or around the court too much? This would help greatly and would appreciate knowing if it is normal to see them around many times in a trip?

In State, there is a city where people get rude treatment at

In Washington State, there is a city where people get rude treatment at restaurants and salons and then the clerk or manager starts an argument and the waiter or waitress, make the person feel they are unwelcome to come back. Some even call the police on suspicion which is easy to do when there is not a real reason for suspicion. If this occurs repeatedly is the person on the cops' radar? Do they watch certain people or is there a pattern that they follow or the person follows? The staff is good at that sort of thing, so they must do it on a regular basis. The public is very aware of this, and other things, yet do nothing. What is the solution? Lawsuit? Any suggestion you can give as to if people should not go places alone?

Detective threatening with a warrant for not returning call

Hello, I was curious if a detective could threaten you with a warrant for not returning their call?I live in NJ and there wasn't one issued.He left a message saying that if I do not return his call or come in by tomorrow at 2pm then he was going to issue a warrant for my arrest. I've never been in any legal trouble before so I'm not sure how to go about this.

Man who issued a check is dead. Family says he did not sign

I have been questioned about a check that I deposited into my bank account. The gentleman that wrote the check passed away. The family of this man has made the claim that he didn't sign the check. I was in an ongoing relationship with him for 7 years. The family member, that is his daughter, has not been in his life for more than the seven years. My bank had refused to give me copies of any documentation of why, who, and what information they were releasing my bank account information to. Is this legal? Can my bank refuse or deny me copies of documents.I live in Virginia, but I have a bank account in a bank that is West Virginia and Maryland.I don't even know what kind of lawyer that I need, criminal, civil etc.I am very confused, the bank has already taken the money out of my account that was never fully credited, which caused overdraft fees, then refunded, then refunded again, then withdrew to give me back the balance that I had to begin with.
