Pasadena, TX

This event occurred today in Harris County.

A car theft, an indifferent cop, a robbery, and increased and unnecessary damages for the owner of the stolen car.

A car owner reports his car as stolen. Because the car is under loan/note, he reports the theft to the car lot note owner. The lot/loan company has a GPS tracker on the car. The loan company co-ordinates with police to report where the car is traveling. The police officer who takes the call grows impatient with the process and blows off following the car saying that she does not have all day to search for this vehicle. The stolen car is then used in a robbery. The police find the stolen car abandoned and have it towed to police impound (175.00 tow fee), they will keep it at a minimum through the week-end,(150.00 storage fees), and possibly longer (75.00 per day). These fees will have to be paid by the person who unfortunately had their car stolen from them, thus compounding their injury/damages. The robbery victim/s could possibly have been spared.

All this because the police officer could not be bothered to complete the task of locating the stolen car as originally reported, even with the aid of a tracker.

Car theft is not seen to be a priority with police dept.s all over our nation. It really should be a mandatory prison sentence and treated as just short of a violent crime. If the car theft is violent the thief should be beaten or shot if caught redhanded. Stealing someone's car can wreck their lives and should be treated accordingly.

For the longest time in Texas, theft of a man's horse was punishable by hanging. I don't see a problem with reviving that practice.

As far as the impatient cop, they have too many other pressing police matters to attend to. Like writing tickets for using a cell phone in a school zone. Or calling me to tell me my fence does not comply with city code. Or making the donut shop safe from terrorists. Or running me off the road on broadway while he was making an illegal left turn.

So don't blame the cop. They are just keeping the city safe from law abiding, tax paying citizens.

I didnt take this as being a LP cop, but i could be wrong. Sounds like a HCSO deputy

had a HCSO deputy tell me.... his commander told him.... writing tickets brings in money...putting criminals in jail costs money, do not worry about criminals, just keep writing tickets.

Elaine -

I have come to realize (through all your posts, not just this one) that the only vicious circle here is that piehole of yours.

I think we are all the same person, just multi personalities living in the twilight zone and using different post names and we dont even realize it. When will we wake up from this nightmare!

I have to agree with Elaine. If you go to the p2c website you read that LP arrest people for many crimes that endanger our citizens. Walking on roadway where sidewalk available. Public intoxication. Lots of traffic offenses that lead to possession of drug paraphernalia. Not any drug busts, though. Funny how there are theft reports but few, if any, arrests for theft. Not much into crime solving these LP officers. More like they drive around sometimes. If they see something occur that isn't too difficult they pull some people over. Rack up any extra charges they can from that. Then they go have a Carls burger.

I will be happy to compare all of my posts to all of your posts and let the public of Topix decide who is the most vulgar and hateful to the others on this forum.
