I have lived in Canberra for 2 years. I will be glad to see the back of this awful place! I thought when I moved here I would be moving to a small friendly city, where the family was safe and we could make a new life and take advantage of all the just opportunities Canberra seemed to offer. How wrong I was!
As of today my car has been broken into 3 times. My house robbed and ransacked. Then 2 x 16 yr old girls tried to poison my little girl at the local McDonalds (they put tablets down on top of real lollies to try to get the the kids to eat them in the playground.) I must say the police here have been very good, particularly with the McDonalds incident.
Although when you’re told there is nothing they can do about your car being robbed again and no result from the fingerprints taken when the house was burgled, things can get a bit frustrating.
If nothing is done to catch these thieves then whats to stop them from continuing on with their bad behaviour?
When my house was robbed the police officer told me that Canberra has the highest home robberies in Australia.
Now I am not suprised! The scumbag who broke into my car left the drivers door wide open, it was opened onto the street, cars would have to have swerved to avoid it.
Not one of my neighbours driving past bothered to knock on my door and let me know it was like that. I find that amazing. Dont people look out for each other in small citys? What would you do?
My family and I will be leaving this town in 5 weeks. I am not sad to go.
