Eggdodger Posted October 17, 2015 Share Posted October 17, 2015 (edited) The police landed a helicopter in the middle of our football field tonight for Homecoming. Two years ago, my oldest brother was poisoned by acquaintances of his in his own home. He called our mother several times complaining of intense abdominal pain and asking for "Pedialyte and strawberries". Neither item helped him. Besides that, my brother's phone showed several outgoing calls to 911- none of them went through, strangely. After he died and he was carried out of his apartment, it was robbed that same night. My brother drank a lot, but he was too young to have died from it, and he never touched drugs. The detective investigating the events surrounding his death managed to recover my brother's stolen music equipment, but only prosecuted his two acquaintances with "theft" and "theft by receiving", respectively. The toxicology report my brother's body was supposedly going under never came to fruition-- at least, we never got results back. Maybe the police just lost interest. The guys both had lots of drug money-- maybe a bribe took place (would explain the big drug problem in this town if police here did take bribes). Regardless, that report could have convicted his supposed "friends" for life if it had ever happened. The one charged with theft by receiving was back on the streets in a month, and occasionally visits my neighbor down the street. I thank whatever god is out there that he doesn't know what I look like. Not enough money or time to prosecute murderers, but plenty enough funding for their own personal chopper in a podunk horse-and-buggy town whose biggest claim to fame is getting a Wal-Mart a couple of years ago. A chopper that they can fly onto the school's football field just because. They didn't join the force for justice. They joined it for power and nice toys. These are the same police that tazed my mother without provocation, causing permanent nerve damage, and recently broke a woman's arm, and even more recently called for "back-up" and surrounded a 16-year-old girl's vehicle to search it. The same police that won't chase you if you jump over a fence because they're too fat to scale it (this is a well-known fact among drug dealers in my town) have their own chopper that serves no purpose in a town where two-story buildings are a rarity. I fucking hate this town. Edited October 17, 2015 by Eggdodger 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
