Neighbour exposing themselves and urination on public property doesn’t seem to be a problem with crimestoppers

By AngryRanter - 15 October 2011 59

On a Saturday morning I woke up to some loud noises coming from my block. I went to get a drink of water and outside the window i saw one of the neighbours drop their pants and urinate outside someone’s kitchen window while the others were running around in circles.

One of them had a shaved head and was swearing and laughing like he wanted to kill something.

I felt like that they were going to be a problem so I called crimestoppers and told them what happened and he said nothing can be done unless I take him to court. He did not send anyone over to check.

This has happened before with another neighbor and ended into a dangerous situation were an AVO was ordered by the police and a lengthy court process.

Why can’t crimestoppers stop crimes before the situation becomes a problem. These situation can get serious and innocent people get hurt.

I was not happy with the attitude of the person I was speaking to when I called crime stoppers he did not act on the situation and said something about how people get drunk and urinate in public places like it’s something I had to get use to.

What’s Your opinion?

Hahahahahaha! Angry Ranter, well deserved name.
From your description, that was my mates pissing on the lawn across the road from you. It’s okay mate, that’s our mate Dave’s place. It was all in fun and jest. Dave spewed up in Johnno’s car weeks back so we were just paying him back.
But yeah, great to know you’re across the road mate. Johnno says to aplagise for giviing you something exciting in your life and next time we’ll restrict it to some extreme ironing instead.
Dave says stop perving on his lawn in the middle of he night or he’ll sling his 10 year old unused fireworks over your yard. He also says who is pissing on his lawn in the middle of the night drunk as a skunk is his businessess, and they were not as think as you drink they were.
Your sincirley, the drunken bastards from across the road.

It’s probably not worth overreacting. I suggest lobbing a couple of molotov cocktails in through their living room window.

It’s great that you have a view out of your kitchen window at someone else kitchen window. Now, how many houses have a kitchen at the front yard? If they weren’t at the front yard and they were a neighbor, they must have been your neighbors in their own backyard and own kitchen window? Perhaps the shaved headed person was cursing at the one who shaved him, the one who shaved him was peeing because they had a bet they couldn’t hold their bladder until the head was shaved and…..what hour of the morning did all this take place. No wonder crime stoppers dismissed it, sounds like what I witnessed at 7pm during Skyfire this year at the glow stick stall.

“This has happened before with another neighbor”

Perhaps you should ask what you are doing that attracts these sort of incidents

I very much doubt what you ‘heard’ and what you’re so indignant about was what you were told. You were probably asked whether or not you’d be prepared to make a formal statement to police and attend court if necessary, or whether you wished to stay anonymous.

In any event, crimestoppers don’t send police around to ‘check things out’, they record information and pass it on.

If you want police to attend because you’re bothered by the noise, you need to call the aptly named police attendance line on 131444. That phone number isn’t free though… Is that why you called crimestoppers – for the free call?

You would be better off calling Police operations on 11444 not crimestoppers – then you are guaranteed to speak to a police person or someone at the main centre – I am not sure who answers the phones for crimestoppers but i have always had the impression from the ads that it is more information/evidence gathering than when you need Police attendance.

Yes, except it’s 131 444.

Crimestoppers calls from the ACT are answered by (unsworn) members at winchester. 131444 (Police assistance line) is answered by (unsworn) memebrs at winchester. They’re the same people.

If you want to speak to a police officer, go to a police station, cause they certainly not attending for an incident as described above.

Crimestoppers? Heck while we’re at it let’s call the SES and ASIO to fix these punks.

Wait, did you call Crimestoppers, or Police attendance?

“Why can’t crimestoppers stop crimes before the situation becomes a problem. These situation can get serious and innocent people get hurt.”

Having a shaved head, laughing, and running around in circles is not illegal. Swearing and urinating in public is an offence, but would generally be unlikely to lead to a serious situation where innocent people can get hurt, and subsequently would have to be close to the bottom of police priorities.

suck it up. the police aren’t going to pay your street a visit just because your neighbour pissed on their own front lawn and you happened to see it
