Lousy police....

Last night was one of those moments. A commotion had happened last night at a neighboring compound, when someone (a guy most certainly) was so drunk he got suicidal and pointed a gun to his head. I only knew this from eavesdropping. In a matter of minutes, people have already gathered outside their fence to snoop. At least one of us at home made an effort to try and call the police. Believe it or not, nobody came. Sometimes, when it's a domestic fight, police does not intervene. But domestic fight plus GUN? I don't think they should just sit pretty. What if somebody had died last night? Or this suicidal attempt turned out into a massacre? Things would have gotten worse if the family themselves had not found a way to resolve it on their own. Why do they need to wait for bloodshed to act?

Where I am they would be here quick if something like that would happen. I know I called for my daughter and they were here johnny on the spot. even when I could not find her for days they brought her home.

I wish it were the same way here. If someone had my face at gunpoint, I won't ever feel secure that someone from the law will be there to save me. i guess I could only rely on prayers.

I would pray nothing like that would happen because surly a life could be lost.

It's just plain wrong that there was no response! Is there any authorities that a neighborhood representative could complain to? Glad you are ok!

I suppose so, cat. But it was a Sunday and no one was around fortunately (note sarcasm)

Sarcasm noted! That's rediculous! I saw your other post, sure makes you wonder if there's a pay-off from the criminal's union (who knows, maybe there is one) to the police union...

I cant stand almost all of my neighbors. They are quiet all day then at night when i lay down to go to bed they are all outside raising hell. Partying and fighting. usually the parties end up being fights. They care nothing about disturbing the peace. Last night i was hearing shouting between the hours of 12am and 2am then the police siren. Im one of the few people around here that work. Most of them are collecting welfare or disability. bBeing disabiled doesnt stop them from raising hell all nite. Im so sick of all them but cant afford to move.

Oh I'm sorry for your situation. I really hope someday you can move to a much peaceful and quieter place. I think you deserve a break from all that "hell breaking loose" at such unholy hours.

We have a very ugly picture of our law enforcement. I still have faith that there are good and dedicated ones around.

Dear friend, Here in South India where I like, there are many acts like this when police do not arrive. At time their patrolling vechile just leave the scene where there are problems. Moreover there also police officials in certain araa come to help for the publice. Mostly they say that they needed the order from the top, or they got a false call so on. But they have to protect the public as it is their duty. Bride them they are ready to do their own work that is given salary...

Bribery is very rampant here in our place as well. Im not saying that there aren't good and honorable officers around but from what I observed last night, it was really very disappointing.
