Here is another maddening reason why living in Detroit stinks sometimes.
My cousin Miss Boots was robbed this week. She left to go to the store after work and when she came back her television was gone along with some jewelry. The person knew exactly when she was leaving and timed it perfectly to pull off the heist.
It isn’t just the robbery that is maddening. The sick part is everybody knows who did it. There is a 14 year old boy who my cousin hired a few days ago to do some work for her. he cased the place and knew the back door was vulnerable. She knows he did it. The neighbors know he did it and even the grand parents of the boy know he did it.
My cousin filed a police report and accused the boy of being the burglar. But nobody is going to step forward and finger the little punk. people in Detroit continue to protect the guilty.
My cousin does not use profanity much, but she did the other day in speaking about her frustration. The television and jewelry has already been sold. There is no evidence and she knows he got no more than $100 for everything. I wish I knew where the stuff was pawned because I would go and buy it back.
Instead she has to go without a television and I will help her get a new one.
Detroit is strange sometimes. I know if a neighbor robbed a neighbor where Icurrently live people would fall over themselves to find the culpret and would cooperate with police.
In my old Detroit neighborhood they protect these people as if they did something noble.
