Q: What should i do if the local PD is protecting a guy who has done bad things to me that i can prove?
This guy has broke into my truck and shed and robbed me of tools. Stole a scooter and tow cable at a different time and admitted on text. Caught him on camera and the officer knows who it is. I showed the video to peope and everyone knows who it is but the police never even investigated
Him. Threatened my life. Threatened me not to take him to court. Had his brother call my private work phone and threaten my family with the aryan brotherhood. The PD says the turned it to DA but DA never got report. The PD ran drug dog around my car while i was in a store with a plain clothes officer over a false police report. They lost my police reports and flashdrive i turned in. I filed a complaint to the cheif and he just kind of made fun of us and wouldn't file one. The police commisioner even told me that had been wronged and wanted to know what outcome i wanted out of this, but havent heard from him since he talked to city attorney and no written report. they have never questioned the guy.
A: Obviously, we would like to have the police take this more seriously and to investigate more thoroughly, but that doesn't seem to be happening. One possibility is to go to the county sheriff instead of the city PD. Another possibility is to file a civil suit for damages and file a protective order for stalking. The stolen goods should get you some money back and the threats should be enough to get a protective order for stalking.
