A visit from the cops

7 posts in this topic

Not being a model citizen I'm used to talking to the police.

But today 20 cops descended on the street going door to door. Warning about crime in the area and to keep my doors locked. I nearly got a dislocated shoulder when referring to my home security system.

Sounds like a bizarre experience. Do you live on the wrong side of the tracks?

I don't think so. But who's going to admit to living in the worst area of the sh*tiest suburb?

B&E. The cops weren't happy when I told them that was not possible as criminals wouldn't need to break anything to enter as the doors are never locked.

Can't read the link = paywalled. Sunnybank.

Your post seems to be police divisions not suburbs, so pretty much the whole of Brisbane. I'm guessing I'm in South Brisbane or Logan. 

I heard some cars pull up so poked my head out to see 5 cop cars pull up. I scurried back inside pronto thinking something serious was going down. Weird to see so many cops going door to door like it was a manhunt for jack the ripper or something.
