On Super Bowl Sunday, some church friends of ours had their car tagged by some 'loosely organized youthful malefactors'. The police, of course, have zero interest after it was reported to them in actually investigating the crime or punishing the guilty.
But they were most interested in warning our friends that they have only 2 weeks to get the tags removed, or THEY will be punished.
Things like this make me loathe the police. I wonder if they recognize just how much ill will this sort of thing generates?
Of course they'd move heaven and earth to prosecute and punish were our friends to form a civic committee of vigilance to do the job that they themselves refuse to do.
