ERHS Dad, Gil, and Jayres: You are not the only ones who feel this way. Reading these monthly Crime Blotter reports, I used to wonder, "Where is the outrage?" I've said this before, but I once asked Officer Orange at a town meeting whether he thought there were enough police patrolling Eagle Rock in light of a rash of recent property crimes, and he said he did think so. I very rarely see police cars cruising the streets or just walking around, establishing the "presence" that Gil mentioned, and can't believe their doing so wouldn't make a positive difference in the crime rate.

Unfortunately the cops can't be everywhere and they especially don't park themselves in front of the local library waiting for bikes to get stolen. I've been analyzing these monthly crime reports for some time now and it is eye-opening to see the reality of what crimes are actually occurring here in Eagle Rock. The majority of crimes are 'vehicle related', whether someone's vehicle got stolen or stuff was stolen out of their vehicle. I think this is the first stolen bicycle crime I've heard about all year which, even though a tragic and inconvenient loss, if we put it in perspective, is a pretty rare event crime-wise. Perhaps security cameras need to be installed every ten feet (like in Great Britain) so we can at least see who is stealing our stuff and thoroughly punish them accordingly

@jayres. Absolutely correct. Isn't nice to not have to kiss butt to make a living, and to be able to see clearly, with accurate focus, and then tell the truth about. I was there. And that "we're busy with more important things" dog don't hunt, and I mean literally. Being tied to an MDT is not pro-active police work-- period.

Have there been any incidents where the thief was seriously beaten by the intended victim? If it happens on my block there will be. hahaha I will snap someones neck for attempting to take food from my child's mouth.

My middle school son from ERHS was asking me why I keep reading Patch and my answer to him was because I want to be aware of what was happening around our neighborhood. I don't feel safe at all parking our car outside the street because of all the burglary going around the area and I agree with everyone's opinion that there should be more police to patrol the neighborhood of Eagle Rock and inform us of all the incidents going around. When I move here in 2001 I usually left our doors unlocked but now I see to it that all our windows are locked even if we are inside our home. Seriously $700 is not cheap nowadays and even in our own backyard my son lost his basketball that is worth $15. It is not that much compared to the amount that others had lost but the thought that you cannot leave anything within your own fence will really scare you.
