The sentence says: "Or the police would have been on us right then and there!"
It might sound silly but I really don't understand what it exactly means.
I guess it means "or the police has been keeping an eye on us". Yes or no, pls help!!
Not enough context!
I think it should read "have been onto us" - have noted what we are doing and are aware of us.
On the other hand, it might mean that they arrested "us".
