What kind of a world is it today when the police , whose paycheck we pay with our taxes , wont even do their job ???

On August 1st 2008 Ithaca Airline Limousine of Ithaca NY was broken into. Office was wrecked completley , Fire alrm knocked off the wall , papers strewn all over floor , people urinated on the chair & rug, and more. Items were taken as well as destroyed.

The criminals were stupid enough to leave fingerprints behind as well as the DNA from their urine !

Tompkins county sherriff was called they came out to take a report but did not take samples off the rug or chair where the urine was. They didnt lift the CLEAR fingerprint that was on the drawer.

A 2nd call was made to let them know that printouts of photo's of the items taken were ready for them to come and get as well as the fingerprint waiting to be lifted and the urine DNA sample that could be taken from the chair and rug to catch the responsible party !

There were also clear photographs of fresh tire tracks of the vehicle that committed this crime , that were taken by the owner showing what type of tires were on the vehicle.

All this evidence and you know what the sherriff said ? "Well we been very busy !" When asked if he could come down tommorow to take this stuff and process it he replied " Well tommorow is my day off "

What in the hell is that ? There's only one officer for all of Tompkins county ??? No other officer can come and help catch these criminals ?

One day one of these people could break in YOUR home !
Is this how you want civil servants to respond ?!

Tompkins County Sheriffs department , you should be ashamed of yourself ! I suppose your too busy protecting some drug addict or some burglar instead of helping the people that really need your help !

I cant even believe the rude , non caring response that was given to a prominent business person doing business in Ithaca for over 30 years !!

Shame on you !

Residents of Tompkins county , it is time to stop putting up with the crap that these civil servants whose paycheck WE pay , hand us ! They decide which cases their gonna give importance to ? I THINK NOT !
Lets elect some people who care about people , not people like we have in there now who just want a paycheck for doing NOTHING ! Because thats what this sheriff did about this crime ...NOTHING !

Shame on you ! Maybe when residents start taking matters into their own hands and dishing out punishment without your help then you'll listen !

You ought to be ashamed of yourself calling yourself a Sheriff ! Your nothing more than a phone call taker waiting for your day off to go spend the money you didnt earn !
