    Well, I had to go over to the police office to identify some criminals today...well...I didn't identify them, because they weren't on the pics.

    I know you are all eager to hear what happened, allow me to enlighten you :D

    A month ago I was packing up for school, when I heard a loud crack/ noise of broken glass on the street. I looked through the window and saw two men, smashing a window and ripping a door, trying to get inside the house across mine. I called the cops (quite nervous to be honnest) and 10 minutes later an intervention squad arrived. Two huge blokes, combat clothing, guns, went in but the burglars were gone. More cops arrived, I had to testify, give signatures etc. Appearantly (from what I heard the cops were saying to eachother) the anti-drug squad was there too, and they found a large bag of drugs (don't know what it was, I'm guessing pot or heroin) ! Pretty scary to know that there are 3 drugdealers (yes 3!) living in your street (about 100 meters). I know of another one living 4 houses away from me, and at the other end of the street lives another one.
    Defenitely some crazy **** going on in my neighbourhood...

    Stay cool man and be careful with whom you talk to about all this.

    The dope trade is everywhere...sadly.

    As long as me or my family isn't being threatened with knives or guns, I'm pretty cool with it.

    Wow, that is pretty scary. I live in a quiet neighborhood, so I'm not sure how I would react if that happened around here.

    Did the robbers see you? Do they know you called the police?

    They didn't see me, and they don't know I called the cops. It was more like a hit and run burglary. They were obviously looking for dope, didn't find any and ran off. What I find disturbing is that this happened at 11 am on a sunny day! Obviously this weren't experienced burglars, some gangmembers or something...

    The neighbours heard it too, but they didn't testify. The woman who lives on the first floor was at home and heard it (impossible not to hear it), but when the police cam she clamed not to have heard anything. My guess is because she is an illegal immigrant, and the police would have asked ID (which she obviously doesn't have). That entire house is a bit fishy, the renters change every other month, and my guess the houseboss (who owns 4 other houses in our street) is one of those guys who make money on the back of illegal immigrants, who need a place to stay and pay no mather what to have a roof above their head.
