Now I'm not usually one to bother complaining about cops because we've all heard the typical stories but this one just pisses me off...
I got the birthday phone call from my mom this morning (at 8am no less) and during the conversation she mentioned that our house was broken into yesterday. Apparently, she was at work and got a phone call from our alarm monitoring company that the alram was going off and the police had been dispatched. So my mom rushes home to find the cops waiting outside the driveway which is gated. Now, her house is literally 1 minute from the main police station/courthouse in surrey and is also on a corner so the cops made great time responding and bragged about arriving under two minutes from the call.
However, they were terrified of our 3-legged, 10 month old black lab which was in the driveway so they had to wait for the homeowner (my mom) to get home before they entered the property. Meanwhile, the asshole who was in the house had no idea the cops were outside all that time and took his sweet time to find all the jewelry and make his way casually out the side gate!!!
I couldnt believe it...if they were scared of a "ferocious" 3 legged puppy to the point of letting a thief get away, how the hell are they supposed to protect anyone else???
