    I find it amazing the number of “experts” there are, sitting behind a computer, when it comes to law enforcement. Yes, your bicycle taken from your front porch may not receive the same amount of attention in comparison to your home being burglarized but what do you actually know about the profession? Until you’ve done the job, you really don’t know what you’re talking about. So to rub a little salt in the wound;

    To DAGB and Gary – ECSO did catch this guy, not the FBI or PPD, and he was a long way from the city jurisdiction. Again it shows that the common nay-sayer doesn’t know what they are talking about, sitting behind their computer without any tangible experience in the profession. Back to your trolling now….

    Gary speaks the truth, most crimes they don’t waste resources on. They only do anything when the get a tip, they don’t actively investigate lots of crimes that happen everyday. Look at the stats

    Phil for the facts, not feel good rhetoric.

    His facial expressions tell the story.
    (I can’t believe that worked. Now just act normal and casually stroll out like nothing happened.)

    Really Gary? Cool!!! I’m gonna go back a car, Rob a bank and shoot someone. My odds of getting away with it seen great! Ok, yes I’m joking. I sure hope SOMEONE catches this guy.

    Hope this guy is caught by the FBI. The ECSD does not solve 2/3 of reported crimes.
