Like most NANAE ...eerrr...NANOG metaphors this one is broken.

We are not talking about stray dogs, were are talking about bad behaviour.

If I keep them from dealing that stuff in my parking lot I do several 
things, in approximate priority order:

My clean customers don't have to suffer any effects of the bad guys 
being on my lot.

The bad guys learn it is not a good place to try to deal.

The Law knows one place they don't have to worry about.
