I have an issue with some people who live in my street they regularly have friends over doing burnouts outside their home, I have spoken directly to these fools and was given very direct instructions as to what I should do with my concerns. Several residents have spoken to the Police who have told them that without evidence they can do nothing so they suggested that one neighbour film the burnouts then lodge a formal complaint with Police then be prepared to attend court and testify to that fact. The evidence is all over the road, with one trail running for approx 100 metres and all on the wrong side of the road. I have no problem with any of this but those neighbours worst effected are hesitant due to threats of retaliation from the offenders.
I DO have a problem with the fact that a Senior AFP Officer lives 2 doors away from this house and has decided for the reasons mentioned above (I can only assume) to do nothing, last week was the officers birthday and he had a party attended by over a dozen serving Police officers and whilst the party was in progress the kids (18-22) lit up the car in the street directly out the front of the Police officers house and not one single copper came out.
Surely when the police are too intimidated by a pack of feral kids to do anything what hope the rest of us, do we confront these fools and when told to f-off either do nothing and be exactly what these kids expect a useless whinger who is just trying to spoil their fun or do we do something more pointed that these children will no doubt call the cops for and decent people who are attempting in vain to make their own street safe will be prosecuted for unlawful behaviour by those very same people who are too gutless to do anything about the problem and allowed it to escalate in the first place.
