I had a guy call me up someone broke into his house stole his belongings and tore his house up, then a second call comes in of 3 juvi that were hiding in the woods.a passerby seen them,then now i have 6 patrol units chasing them, they get caught, and have stolen property in there possesion,take the kids and some of the stolen stuff to the original compl.,which is the victim and parents are called, of course they say"he was supposed to be staying at teh other friends house' then they really act like they dont care, the victim, the guy with the torn up home  says"well spoke to the parents i dont want to file charges!" now either he knows nothing will happen to them or in his words, i spoke to the parents and i feel sorry for them!


i think this is why the world has gone mad and the kids run it, either  nothing will happen, or parents dont care, or Why call if your not gonna file freaking charges, the police chased them for awhile, now the officers are muddy, mad ,and a waste of time,!i dunno what you think, my thing why call if you dont want to press charges!

That is the way it goes.  Sometimes you are on a call for hours then the CP says oh no worries I don't want to press any charges just want them to stop.  just part of the job Aggrivating but what ya gonna do.

That's not an issue in KY. Citizens don't press charges. Once the complaint is made, the police press charges. Most times we don't even need them for court.


Pain is weakness leaving the body.

Obstacles are what we see when we take our eyes off the goal.

i suck at typing fast , we spend 2 or more hours, say 4 by the time the call came in and the officers got the second call, the chase, capture of the kids and then the locatiion of the goods, 1 officer taking the report others speaking to the parents, you know how it goes, and then, blaming each other he was supposed to be at your house ect. hours, gone by,,,it was a big waste! i dont know why people feel bad when its kids! they were ages 13 to 15yr and one being a female child, if i was the parents and mine was with boys,dont get me started,

Oh it's great, once I take the complaint and get their statements I never have to see them again. They always try later on to tell me they don't want to press charges, and my response is you're not I am. "Well I'm not going to testify." "I don't need you to I am."
