Im not trying to be petty, but around here you can’t have anything nice, If you do it won’t stay nice for long. It will either get stolen, vandalized, broken, scratched or trespassed upon. If the human animals don’t hurt it, mother nature will.
I think this was the last straw for me, even my patient level headed wife is talking about moving now, The meth lab found on our property, didn’t do it, the heroin needles found on the side of that road didn’t do it, the crackheads stealing our mail didn’t do it, her getting run off the road by somebody she identified and the police would do nothing didn’t do it, but finally I think she sees what I am saying. This is no place to live.
We have a daughter now and the school she will be going to if we stay here has kids who must take all their medications at school so their parents wont steal it from them to sell it. Do I want my daughter around those people?
You have to be armed at all times around here, there was a guy bringing his tractor to the machine shed for the night and someone shot him in the back, no motive, no suspect ever found (imagine that with our keystone cops) They think he stumbled upon a meth lab. As they were knocking on doors in the area to ask people if they heard anything the cops found Not one but TWO active meth labs in peoples trailers. This was totally by chance.
I have had some drugged up girl ring our doorbell at 11 pm on a saturday night looking for directions, now keep in mind I live waaaaay back off the road, so this was a bit odd. There were 3 other people in the car and I have no doubt if I didn’t answer the door, our house would have been robbed. Everytime the doorbell rings I answer the door with a firearm in my hand(hidden behind the door). We have had countless home invasions around here, its that bad.
There are only three county police officers on duty at night and this is a big county. If you call 911 it may be a while till help arrives, and then you might get a talented officer, or some clown. If all three officers are on the opposite end of the county it can be 20 minute till they can make it and thats sirens going.
You may think im paranoid, a gun nut. Which I am not. Its just that bad around here.
Yesterday my wife and I and my daughter went to downtown indy, now keep in mind this is a haul. I put 200 miles on the prius yesterday, But in Indy where its the dangerous big city, I felt safer than I do here. Its that bad. Its time to move.
