serial_crusher: My neighbors called the cops because of a suspicious vehicle driving by their house at the same time every day for a few weeks.Turns out it was their next door neighbor driving to work.
Andromeda: Semi-related, does anyone remember the police blotter posted for a random small town in Alaska where it was filled with crazy drunk antics and wild bears and what not? THAT was a thing of beauty, but I can't remember what it was.
King Something: Rich white people problems.
WI241TH: Someone linked it in the comments:http://www.adn.com/2013/02/07/2780557/unalaska-police-blotter.html#st o rylink=misearch
Vodka Zombie: I got pulled over once after driving on the same road twice in the span of a few minutes. I'd gone to the hardware store to pick up some things, and on my way home I realized I forgot something. So, back to the store.When I was heading home again, the cop pulled me over and asked what I was doing. After explaining my story, he told me that he'd better not see me on that road again. I laughed at him, he said he was serious, and I laughed at him even harder.I think he began to understand the stupidity of his order when I asked for his phone number should I need anything from any of the shops on that very busy, and very public, street as he'd be the one picking them up for me.Poor bastard really wanted to write me a ticket for something.
flucto: OMG this is about RICH PEOPLE? Let's all be OUTRAGED and grind them into free meatloaf for the poor.
scottydoesntknow: That wasn't a man delivering a package, that was a rapist who knows how to cover his tracks when discovered
JohnnyRebel88: The police might not be reporting other criminal offenses, as this is done in my area to keep the property values stable. It's all smoke and mirrors. Never trust police and their agenda when it comes to disclosing all the information.

Never trust police and their agenda when it comes to disclosing all the information.And let's not forget sheer laziness. Last time i had an attempted break-in, I called the cops and the guy on the line made it sound like the fact that he would have to fill out paperwork and send a form in the mail would just be so difficult that it wasn't even worth the effort and if I wanted an officer to come out I would need to sit there and spend an entire day off work to wait for them. I wonder how many thousands of property crimes of that sort are never reported for that very reason?
GreenSun: Well their reports are a lot better than having to go check out something about some gunshot noises in the backyard, only to find that there are 3 dead freshly raped women tied up and the suspect is headed towards the nearest school.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: How do such incredibly stupid people accumulate so much money?
Shaggy_C: These residents pay the high taxes that cover the police department's labor costs. They can use the police for whatever reason (no matter how seemingly frivolous) they want.
ChrisDe: One day I might appreciate it, but my neighbors watch my house a little too closely. They've called us a couple of times for what they thought was suspicious activity, but wasn't. A friend leaving through the back door, a strange car parked in the driveway overnight. It's kind of putting the kibosh on my plans to have an affair with that intern in marketing.
