Moline Acres Police Dept. in St. Louis, MO Complaint - How Dare You?
SAINT LOUIS, MISSOURI -- Today my car was broken into in the Moline Acres municipality. I did what you should do, informed security and local police. Police was dispatched and I waited for more than 30 minutes for someone to come. They never did so I went to the station myself. Walked in waited for someone at the window. When a "officer" finally came out I began to tell him what happen and that a shoulder bag with books and magazines was taken from my car. The thiefs probably thought it was a purse. His question to me was "So you're here to report theft of some books that were taken?" HOW DARE YOU? Thats why you think I waited for you and then came up here was to do that? They broke into my car and stole from me..better than that I saw the possible thieves sitting in the car next to me before I went into the store. So if anything I can describe the vehicle and somewhat the two people sitting in it. I know this isn't a major crime but HOW DARE YOU not give me the same urgency and attention as any other VICTIM. I've never been in trouble with the law and am more than an upstanding citizen. And the department made me feel like they COULD CARE LESS. So just don't always assume that the people who are supposed to care and have your back really do...I learned that lesson today.
