    Thank people like yourself who are always spouting that "ACAB" ********. The numbers of officers are dwindling because of the treatment they get, even when they are right/justified/etc. And with the violent crime rate the way it is in Marion County, it isn't going to get any better. So good luck.

    1st off this isn’t a commentary on the police themselves, ik ive a bit of reputation for not being their biggest fan round these parts. More of a commentary on the current political and social climate of living in the big city.

    Lived in Marion county for 3 years now, called into dispatch via 911 or 311 a total of I think 3 times now.

    1st time several years ago I watched a literal shootout between road raging cars, dispatcher asks if I got license plates and when I said no they pretty much said “what do you want me to do about it” , idk see if you have any cops close by and send them ?

    One call into 911 was for trespassing, had to do with contractors working behind my house insisting they could drag men and equipment across my yard. They weren’t working on my yard or but hey it was the easiest way for them because of fences where they were working. After about a 45 minute standoff dispatch calls back and asks if the problem is still going on.

    Latest one is calling on a neighbors barking dog. Dog is left out for hours late into the night all the time. Call into 311 after 10 pm for a noise complaint and the dispatcher asks me if I want the number to the mayors action line. No I don’t want the number, I want you to send someone to shut this sh** down because 10pm is the cutoff for noise complaints. I relayed that this wasn’t a one off thing, long and short of it dispatcher literally hung up on me.


    So if inside of Marion county your on your own, the law only exists the come and do reports after the fact- CMV
    I have had the same issues where IMPD does not do their job. IMPD stinks. That's why I carry. A gun is much lighter then carrying a cop. And they wont do their job anyway. Called the cops on New Years Eve because our idiot neighbor shoots off his .38. They never even came out. I filed a complaint and 6 weeks later I had a Sgt call me. He said the commander that night cancelled the call. I described the gun, and told them I witnessed it. They never even bothered. I ended up telling the Sgt I would take care of it myself next time. IMPD is worthless. And it is pretty much across the board with all police. They dont care, hell, half of them are crooked anyway.
    But yet if they hear free doughnuts, they will be there. Maybe we should tell them I heard there were free food at the crime scene. Maybe that will motivate them

    ***Hypothetical Situation***
    --- Any resemblance to actual events are coincidental ---

    911: Hello, 911, what's your emergency?

    ACAB Caller: My neighbors dogs are barking. They may have seen a squirrel.

    911: (Recognizes number on caller ID) Okay, let me transfer you.
    *Line Clicks* Hello, I can assist you with your cars extended warranty.
    If you do not enforce the simple, you end up like California. Where every business is getting robbed. You seem to be part of the problem. Do you want him to confront the neighbor and it escalates?

    Where is this free food you speak of? And you should take care of things yourself. You'd be much more satisfied with the service.

    Not another LEO basher.
    Yeah we had the same idiot neighbors apparently but on the 4th of July.
    Ask Frank about it. I took care of it myself and those guys still showed up. Great group this IMPD people.

    OK new guy know this…
    INGO is blessed with some LEO membership that we all hold in high standing because they are solid folks. Having met more than a few and exchanged in here with others I hold them all in high regard. We will not go down the road you seem to live on. Get off the cop bashing high horse. We can and do discuss any short comings regarding the local LEO but we do it in a civil fashion. You are new here so this will be your Mulligan. Don’t waste it please.

    Now let’s all just get along OK.
