I am confused! I am retired. The hometown has around 20 officers. They are woefully undertrained and illequipped. They are driving 12 year old Ford Taurus cars. The last couple of Chiefs have been indicted and are now convicted felons. The city is going to hire an "outside" Chief. The agency is a poor excuse for a PD. I became aware of a scam artist working an elderly neighborhood. I talked to one Captain about it. A tree cutting service. They are like the Travelers. They convince the elderly that a tree is going to fall on their house or that the power company sent them to cut the tree. They need to be paid up front in order to pay their dump fees. I know of three people they got for around $1500.00. I had license plate numbers, paid receipts, phone numbers, names, vehicle descriptions and had located the scam artists. A marked unit was dispatched. Scam artists have a scanner. GOA by the time the unit gets on scene. OK. I talk to the elderly folks, go to the PD and try to file a complaint for theft. We don't do that anymore, they have to talk to the Prosecuting Attorney. OK. We make an appointment and keep it. Nobody knows anything in the PA office. They start checking and find out there are other complaints. The PA won't meet the complainants, he says to these elderly folks; "Get an attorney, this is civil." I cannot believe this! Whatever became of public servants? You probably guessed that this clown is not elected. I just needed to vent. The local PD, the Prosecuting Attorney and the law just are not doing what I would think is their job. I have never dealt with deadheads like this bunch before. The thing that PO'd me was when a PD Captain said I was retired, quit nosing into things.
