I'd like to comment on the police blotter for today. Good grief, how many break-ins do you have in Santa Fe? How on earth are these people getting away with this? Where are these peoples neighbors? Does no one see anything. Santa Fe has break-ins every day. I would think the Police Department would try and set up something to catch these useless people. They are violating your space and your privacy and that is scary.

If this crime wave continues unabated, it will eventually end tourism in Santa Fe.

Apparently there has been a shift back to residential break-ins over car break-ins. It would be interesting to plot these on a map and see if perhaps it was a spree by the same people. The Police Department in this town is incompetent and full of nepotism. It needs new leadership, tactics policies and a fresh approach with communtiy policing. Most neighborhoods never see a cop on patrol they are too busy writing tickets for using your cell phone. Of course, when considering the elected leadership - Mayor and Council - what else would you expect. Safest place in Santa Fe - Dunkin Donuts.

Don't forget that many citizens are afraid to call the police because, at best, they are rude and verbally abusive.

And with regard to the cell phone issue, I see more cops on their cell phones than anyone else at this point. Not hands frees, not their radios, but their nifty little flip phones. Way to set an example, SFPD.

The police department is incompetent and full of nepotism. Instead of dealing with the bigger issues...they are stopping speeders, cell phone talkers, and just shooting the s h i t while on duty.
Last week I called 911 because I saw a man beating on his girlfriend. 45 minutes pass and nobody showed. I then leave the scene of beating, and a block away, two cops cars are facing opposite directions, cops are sitting in their car, and chatting it up! They must have just ignore the dispatch call and kept talking.
LOSERS!
And the dispatch woman told me, with attitude, that they 'are very busy'...busy doing what?

SFPD is a joke!

Most break-ins are fueled by drugs. Somebody has some "friends" over... they drink, smoke pot, sniff lines, or inject H... and they also get a REAL good look at your home and whats in it. They find out when your not there... then they come back, kick in the door and take your junk... or your families junk.

or!

You pick up one of those dudes at DeVargas park downtown to do your housework or yardwork... and they case your place... they remember where you live and wait till your not there... and they kick in your door and rob you blind.

Bottom line, these criminals KNOW what you have before they break in...

And that makes it right that the SFPD does not respond to calls and/or investigate? Doesn't that make the crime worse on the criminal's part, as the crime has been premeditated?

Santa Fe operates differently...
We have two slobs who commit vehicular homicide, and have not yet been held accountable for their actions. One spent a weekend in jail, that is it.

They are both out and about, living their lives.

Nothing is happening with this, it will get pushed aside until they think we have forgotten about it, then it will be washed away...like some of the other offenses they 'had'.

Sad, very sad!

The economy is hitting a lot of people but if you have to resort to crime instead of finding work or other legal means to live there is something wrong with you. Most people live beyond their means and think they are entitled to all the flashy things they see on TV. If you can't afford it you don't need it.

You need to work on how to construct an opinion. You just said that I am racist against anybody who is looking for a better way of life. Maybe you should hang out at that park... you need a better way of life! LOL!

are confused. Are you saying personal experience, or experience standing behind one of these welfare beauties in Albertsons while they sign off on their wick vouchers while gabbing on their cricket phone?

Look at the majority of the addresses of these break ins, its the neighbors that are doing it. I had a friend who caught her next door neighbor climbing through her bedroom window while her husband was away...luckily she had a gun and the neighbor fled the police came about 20 minutes later the neighbor wasn't home of course, and never arrested. Even though the neighbor still lives there!

This is a real problem. We have to work all day to afford living in SF. These cowards case houses and come in and take what they are too pathetic to earn on their own.

Do yourselves a favor, run a webcam at your place and get yourselves an indoor German Shepherd with a dog door. Well worth the extra housekeeping effort. Plus, they're terrific family companions to come home to.

I'd love to catch one of these cowards in the act. No police, no judge, no jury, no more bad guy.
