Yesterday I was out front talking to my neighbors across the street. They asked me if my second car was for sale. I said yes and we walked over to look at it. It was parked outside my yard.
Well we walked up to it and I went to open the door, someone had cut the lock out of the door on the driver's side :mad: :outrage , I guess attempting to either steal the car or open the gas cover (the lever is inside the car) to steal the gas. Well they must have been "stuck on stupid" :iagree because they could not open the door after they took the lock off. All they left was a hole the size of a half dollar and the handle.
Now I have to get the handle and lock replaced before I can sell the car.
Then I find out this happened to 2 other neighbor's cars.
The neighbor I was talking to, it happened to his daughter and he caught a man coming from the side of his daughter's house at 4am Monday morning, but did not call the police. And it happened to a single lady across the street and the house next to hers was broken into last week and lots of things were taken including clothes.
I went in my house and called the police. In the mean time my neighbor took my car down the block to my Aunt's house and parked it under her carport inside her gate.
Well here comes the policeman in a patrol car. I told him what was happening to me and 2 of my other neighbors and on the slip of paper he give me with the case number he wrote for offense "malicious mischief" :mad: I said what do you mean "malicious mischief" breaking locks is "breaking and entering". Spray paint, key scratching, breaking off a rear view mirror, and letting air out of tires is malicious mischief. This was attempted thief or breaking and entering.
Then he tells me the other people will have to call in and report theirs as he is only here on my call I told him you tell them that when they walked up to the patrol car. He then listed to their stories as to their locks being broken and the man across the street told him what the guy looked like coming out from the side of his daughter's house.
The patrolman acted like it was no big thing what is happening on my block.
An investigative reporter on one of the TV channels here did an expose on the police department here and proved that they are listing crimes for a lesser reason, even murder is being listed as "unknown", "natural causes" and whatever else they can come up with to lower the crime statistics for this dumb city. The reporter even approched the Police Chief on camera and got the run around verbally.
Not only does it make one feel violated when something like this happens, but dealing with police that lie and cover the truth makes me feel even more violated.
Thanks for letting me vent, I feel much better. AHHHHH!!!!
So longing to see Jesus :rapture
24 days till I move out of this neighborhood.
