OT: police refuse to do their job

Page 5 of 8  
PM,

Got news for you;you can't sue the police for not doing their job. It's been tried already,even for much more serious crimes.
Something you REALLY will not like to hear;The police do NOT have to come if you call 911.If they are busy elsewhere,you're on your own.Same goes for natural disasters like hurrcanes,floods.

Greetings,
You can sue other people with outrageous success but suing the government doesn't work well in most cases but I am sure you know that. So perhaps I misunderstood what you said? Are you saying I should have a lawyer deal with the police and they would take the report right away?
Thanks, William

My point was if there was a telephone call from the lawyer to the police asking why nothing was done, the chances of something happening are far greater than a mere citizen questioning them.

Sadly, I think that you are right. I have a lawyer friend that I will ask the next time I am with them.

You "weren't told to bring it"? Your proof of insurance should ALWAYS be in the car, dipshit. Or is it really that you don't even have insurance? It's goddam morons like you that cost the rest of us extra money for car insurance.
Fuck off and die, idiot. If I was the cop you reported that to, you would have been arrested for being stupid, and not having insurance.

Greetings,
You don't know what you are talking about. You are not even required to have insurance on a car-- I own five cars and I only have insurance on three. You are only required to have insurance for a car which is on the public streets. Many people have a car which they currently don't drive.

So...., in your original post where you said:

You "transport tools in the trunk...". You do that on the public streets, or what? Explain that one.

Greetings Dan,

As you see the car is on the public streets in an ally with a building directly to both the left and the right of the vehicle. I am taking the tools out of my trunk in this photo to work on the building. I will then drive off to find a place to park. Once I am done working I will drive back to in front of the building and load up again. I own four houses on the quarter block where this photo was taken. Lots of people probably saw me load and unload-- people who know where I live.
Hope this helps, William

Please tell me how car insurance covers tools in the car? Unless something is a PART of the car, it's not covered by car insurance. Or at least that is what my insurance agent told me.

Duh. Did the OP have his tools stolen from a driveable car, or one that was in his back yard?
And, if the tools WERE stolen from a derelict car that was parked on his property, it WOULD have been covered on his homeowners insurance. And then, only maybe.

Double-duh to you. The quoted statement above *IS* from the OP, and he has already stated that the tools were stolen from a driving car. Try to keep up with the thread, will ya?

Greetings Dan/Steve,
a) I have insurance on the car. b) I did not have proof of insurance when I went to make the report -- didn't know I needed it. c) Dan said "Your proof of insurance should ALWAYS be in the car, dipshit." which has several things wrong with it.     i) Cars don't always need insurance- only the ones you currently drive or park on street. You shouldn't lose your right to police protection for uninsured cars in your garage or off street. The breakin happened while the car was parked off street so I should not, in my opinion, have been turned down because I could not produce insurance.     ii) I wasn't driving the broken into car when I went to make my report     iii) Dan is needlessly abrasive and rude -- to many people, not just me. d) I want to know why should the police refuse to take a report if I cannot produce car insurance (from Dan who appears to believe this is acceptable)?
Thanks, William

One might expect that you'd do the obvious thing and ask the police for the reason.

So, follow up and ask "what kind of requirement?" or "what law/rule makes this required?"...

Exactly!!! Jesus, you're a dense one. You are required to have insurance (and proof of same in the vehicle). You don't have that?
Answer that simple question. Do you have insurance on THAT CAR, or not?

And what does that have to do with the requirement to have insurance on a vehicle?

And why does one need to have proof of auto insurance to file a theft report for personal property contained in a car in the first place? No state require that a person have theft coverage insurance for an automobile. Plus, coverage for that kind of property is normally found in a homeowner;s policy, not an auto policy.

Thank you Trader4. Exactly!
And yes Dan, I have insurance on every car that I own which I drive on public roads at the time that I drive it on the public roads. I did not drive that car to the police station. I left it as I found it untouched. I didn't grab the insurance card for it because I didn't know that I would need it. I am not some "stupid idiotic moron" because I didn't grab the insurance card.
