FLMountainMan: Hmmmm......think we're about to see a Fark thread where the majority of posters suddenly think the police do a great job.

Probably the same people who hate corporate welfare but praise Obama for the bailouts.

ThrobblefootSpectre: "Police, meanwhile, say the answer to crime is more cops, who - unlike the private patrols - can investigate crimes, do follow-up and put together cases.  "

Bullshiat.   Had my home burglarized twice over the years.  Both times, the PD officer taking mystatement flat out said this report was basically for insurance purposes, and the PD would, and could,  do absolutely and exactly nothing in the way of investigating or trying to get the stolen items back.

It depends on the crime.  I can't do much for a burglery unless the theif does something stupid like leave their ID or the homeowner has cameras and we get a licence plate, something along those lines.  Rape, menacing, DUI, alarm drops, cars on fire, accidents, missing children...these are all instances where I have investigated, put cases together, etc. and got positive results.

I'm sorry about your home, but there really is a limit on what I as an officer can do.  If this is a recurring event, I would make more patrols in your area or something along those lines to try to deter the little fish, possibly try to involve the local community to assist us in info gathering.  Theft crimes can be tricky ones to handle.

I dropped a friend off at her dad's mansion at 3 am and when I left that exclusive community what I thought was a cop pulled me over. This guy gets to my car and starts in with the questions and then I notice his uniform. Ranger Rick Security. I started laughing and he gets all indignant and asks me what is so funny. I say, " You're not a cop. Fark off." Then drove away and left him standing there slackjawed.
