CommentsI'm continually amazed that LE can arrest and convict a drunk, a kid with a half-ounce on weed on him, or a teenager hanging out in a parking lot with his friends, but they can't find who burglarized my home or who slashed tires on a dozen vehicles in the neighborhood. Guess that would require some real police work instead of just shooting fish in a barrel.
Then someone who odds are wasn't bothering anyone gets an arrest record while the real criminals are still on the loose and waiting for an opportunity to steal or destroy what they didn't work for.
But LE can chest thump and say look what a good job we're doing, keeping these victimless criminals under control.
