Still Unsolved

I tried to find out if the police were doing anything on my truck theft case last night. I can't get a single person to answer the phone in the detective division of the SPD. They seem to not want to be bothered. Some numbers don't even have voicemail. They just ring ad infinitum. The ones that have voicemail don't return calls. I've been told by others who have had items stolen that the only way to even get their attention is by catching them when they either leave or arrive at police headquarters.

I know the SPD is shorthanded. I know policework is demanding, and not very financially rewarding... but there has to be some sort of law and order. You can't just write tickets and call it a day. If you'll pull people over for going 5 miles an hour over the speed limit, but won't respond to a stolen vehicle call, you're not worthy of being a peace officer.

It's not the law abiding public who need to be punished, but that's the way it seems...

What is it going to take? Do we have to wait until a police vehicle gets stolen and stripped by these creeps for any action to be taken?

I'm sorry. =(

Oh, SPD doesn't have to worry about getting their cars stolen - their vehicles are POS. Wasn't it the last high-speed chase that proved that?

"There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind
I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side
It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away
We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down"

lol... hippie songs... eww.

I agree that no one wants to drive the police cruisers, but they're not driving them, according to the other guy who's car was stolen, they're crushing them!
