Dealing

It’s been almost a week since I was burglarized and a detective will come on Thursday to survey the home and take fingerprints. It may not make a difference, but I was insistent that an actual detective come out and take fingerprints. I have very little hope of regaining my stolen items, but I do want to see the police do their job.

I am a public employee as well. If I don’t do my job, people suffer. The same thing is true of law enforcement officers. If they sit on their asses in police cars, cruising men4now and adam4adam or wait on the side of the interstate for speeders, thieves and other criminals have a free ticket to rob, steal, and pillage through my shit.

As I have gone through this event, I have experienced a range of emotions. Shock, relief, disappointment, sadness, anxiety, and anger: all plausible reactions.

Parker has been supportive.

I don't have much faith in the system, but I do have hope in things working out for the best. There might be a fingerprint left behing that they can trace to someone that has a record and you may just be able to get your stuff back. Its a stretch but hope is never a great thing to lose...

Just something to think about, very often thieves are in one's circle. Time after time again I have heard that someone was burglarized and it turned out to be one of the people in their circle sometimes on of their friends. I'd do a little detective work myself if I were you. Sometimes burglaries are random but other times, someone has been watching you and or they know what you have because they have been to your place of residence...At any rate be blessed and I hope you get at least some the things back that were taken...

I'm glad you weren't there when they entered. Even though we work hard to gain material things, your well-being is much more important. I do hope they find whomever did this. I've been in just this same situation before.

man just be pleased that you were not at the house when this took place. I agree with Kyon Saucier "this is usually the act of someone in your circle or close to you." Whom would better know what you own and when you are at home and when you are not? Random act maybe, but not likely. Insurance will cover some items, the most important you own is safe and that would be you.

Good thing Parker is there for you. To go through such an experience by oneself without any support and comfort is awful. As D-Place said, good thing you weren't there at the time of robbery. I don't want to alarm you, but there are some bold nuts out there today.
