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?

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.

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...
