I had to read this twice after reading cops arrested the burglar because I’m not use to it. I unfortunately live in New York city, the liberal rotten sphincter hole of the east coast, and without a doubt if that happened here, the cops would have either shot the home owner and/or arrested him and let the burglar go, and if you think I’m lying, a friend of mine drives a cab and was robbed a few years ago and he ended up beating the crap out of the robber and holding him till cops arrived. And what did the cops do when they got there? Threatened to arrest HIM for assault and demanded he let the robber go which he did!
And if you think that happens rarely, he told me the same thing happened to another cabbie who drove a guy to the Bronx who tried to skip on the fare which was $30. So he chased after the guy, punched him out and held him till cops arrived. When they got there, they not only demanded he release the guy, but also pay him $100 bucks for assaulting him which he did! So not only did this guy rob him for $30, he also had to pay him an extra $100 and apologise! I always tell people that when they want to know how incredibly sick and liberal NYC is.
I’ve never been to N.Y.C. but I have a story. My b-i-l, now deceased, was an owner/operator, long haul trucker, driving in the contiguous 48 and northern Mexico.
He made a trip to NYC and had to make a delivery, he stopped in front of a business where he had to take in some paper work, saw a meter maid and asked her if he could double park for 5 minutes or less, she said,”sure, go ahead”
He locked his truck took the papers inside, all less than 5 minutes, when he got back there was a $150 parking ticket on his semi and somebody had smashed the drivers side window and stole his brief case. Thereafter, he refused all loads to NYC.
You are not relating truthful information.
Clearly cabbies need to learn to beat the crap out of the burglar and then get the heck out of there without involving the cops.
