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.
