What is Apathy is Lack of interest or concern, especially regarding matters of general importance or appeal; indifference. 2. Lack of emotion or feeling; impassiveness. I have the unpleasant result of being a victim of police apathy and stupidity, I have not many qualms about the officer on the beat, it is the higher ranking officers superintendent's etc. the prosecution services, antisocial behaviour unit. I have had to call out the police on many occasions because of a couple of families that live on the same street as myself, They are bullies, and these families do as they want when they want, for instance obstructing pavements and roadsides with vehicles they store and repair for other people although this is against council rules, one of them has been prosecuted for not heeding warnings about doing this, it still has not prevented them from storing vehicles around the area and creating hardship for other residents and at the same time breaking the rules, people have been unable to walk the pavements, people with disabilities, disabled carriages, prams, the elderly, because of obstruction from these morons, People in the area are feared to stand up to these families who are part and parcel of the same family, But I and another member of my family have taken a stance against these morons, They are a family that have retaliated with threats to residents that lived nearby and have carried out such threats, They have driven out around three other families one family had their property damaged by this family who arranged for someone else to do their dirty deeds because they are that big and hard they dare not do it themselves in case they are caught, I believe they think they are some kind of Mafia, they are certainly not mature, And to put a cap on it they have had the cowardly effrontery to attack my property twice and my brothers twice causing damage to our windows and my brothers car, They have blocked our drives with their and their friends and relations vehicles, thrown bottles, part eaten sandwiches, a condom, fired fireworks at the house, allowed their kids to fire BB pellets of which I collected around 300, continuously at our windows, allowed them to play football outside our house so they can accidently (not) kick it at our windows and door, at one time a police pco being present and to top it when she looked out of the window without her hat on they made a gesture at her with their arm, allowed their kids and their friends to stare and gesture through our window take photographs through our window, throw hard snowballs at the windows, ridicule us, name call every time we entered their view, the father and relatives would stand and laugh and grin at us and at what their kids were doing, the father would come out into his garden whenever we entered ours just to stand and stare with arms folded and his sickly stupid grin trying to make it uncomfortable and hoping we would go back into the house (not so) he would then make skits and allow his kids to throw threats at us saying he would knock me out (whatever) while he stood there laughing, This moron the father has threatened to kill me, has bet me I will leave my home before he does. not to mix with him because I am too old, threatened damage to my property, not to mix with him because he knows some really nasty people, I have told the police I believe he has mental problems because he was given medication after severely beating up his partner who eventually had the guts to leave him, the police have never looked into this they say it is nothing to do with this situation, (hello wake up) Anyway I could go on and on but you hopefully you get the idea. Having been told by the police not to retaliate or we could be the ones to get into trouble and one day he would slip up and be caught out by an independent witness, as it was our word against his, our family witnesses and friends don't count? I called the police each time an incident occurred complained and asked them to put a stop to it and I wanted them prosecuting for harassment, bullying, intimidation, stalking, incitement with others to cause damage, abuse, hate crimes, slander, antisocial behaviour, I personally listed everything as told by the police to be able to bring a prosecution, HA, None of this I have now been told would count until I have an independent witness but this moron and his family know the law and always do things when we are on our own, why does he know so much because he has worked with the police and anti social department as a street warden and knows the in and outs, I am cutting out most of what has happened as it would take hours to fill you in. Anyway the police every time they have called all they have said is we will go have a word with them, they have never warned nor charged them, I requested surveillance be put in, they refused to put in surveillance cameras and sound equipment to capture the goings on they said it would be too expensive and it was not really necessary in this case? I was mortified and gave a piece of my mind, I had a senior officer visit me just over two years ago when the first incident of the broken window occurred they might as well have not bothered the man was a fink and not fit to be a senior officer, he spoke more about himself and his achievements he was so full of himself, And ****e, We was told it could have been anybody to blame as there had been ten (10) windows broken in the same night right from the top of the next street and down to ours of course ours being the last on the list, I told him straight away I did not believe him I was told I could please myself, (I later went right up and down three streets checked every house not a broken window to be seen, he had lied, then I asked an officer that came later if there had been any other windows that had been broken on the same night his reply no there was not, then this officer got on with saying why don't you move? (Why the hell should I) then try to ignore them? If they make a noise with cars do what I do and move into another room? the moron is sat in my house in the only room I have, he then went on to say if his neighbours kids in the back made a noise he would close the door, if it was still noisy he would move into the front room, excuse me officer but I just told you this as you can see is our only room beside our small kitchen that still receives noise as it is even nearer, his reply was well I think you know what I mean? No I don't I replied, He said anyway as for them trying to intimidate you just ignore them there are things you can do, I said what, He said my aunt for instance has cats that keep coming onto her property from her neighbours and instead of confronting them she puts out bottles of water and hangs up old CD disc to scare them away, I and my brother looked at each other frowning, I got a little angry and said so what your saying is if I go out there and put up some CD disc and place bottles of water it will stop that moron next door from doing what he is doing is that what your trying to tell me, he then said some fancy word like trying to stun us like, I am using this as an hypothesis, I said whatever, I looked it up later this is what I found, A hypothesis (plural hypotheses) is a proposed explanation for a phenomenon. For a hypothesis to be a scientific hypothesis, the scientific method that one can test it. Scientists generally base scientific hypotheses on previous observations that cannot satisfactorily be explained with the available scientific theories. What a buffoon, because I had got irritated with him he said it seems that as though I am letting things get on top of me and I need to be patient, he then suggested that I should see my doctor and that he would have a talk to them to see if they could do anything for me, I said I had already seen my doctor and told her the situation and that I needed help with my sleep I also told her I needed something to keep me calm and that she had refused to give me anything for the latter but had given me some mild sleeping tablets and asked what the police were doing about it all, when I told her she said you were ridiculous and the only thing I needed to help me were the police to do their job right. he said in my experience said I don't think she knows what she is saying and needs to hear my views, At that I lost it and went on one I called him an idiot and that he was trying to make out that I was cracking up when all the time it was them to blame for being useless at their job and that there would not be a situation if it were not for them, he said you cant say that, I retorted straight back shouting at him, yes I can and I have your useless, On this he made his excuses and left saying he had to go somewhere, mind you when he first came in he said he had all day if need be to help get things sorted out, (Excuse me who needs the help), I forgot half of what I had said because of the sheer anger and frustration, Now you may think well has he tried to talk to this person(yes he refuses) have I been willing to go to arbitration (yes) he refused four times to the police and the antisocial services, Why because he will have been afraid to own up to anything and I had already told the officers that I would be confronting him and them with proof of what he had done and his family with photos and video to ask him why he and his family and friends had done all this, you have to own up and confront situations before there can be a cure, I told the police to tell him all this to prepare him, he would have been afraid to admit he was a bully and a coward. How did it all start you may ask, He stole some of my land and built a fence on it I took him to court and won, ever since he has victimised us, then he started to repair cars on his drive and the road and pavement with his brother he was warned to stop but I was told where to go with threats, I own my house as he does, I did not I did not want to lose value on my property and it was bringing down the tone of the area, I informed the police and the council, so he did not like this he wanted to do what he wanted without any opposition or else, I refused to let him and stood up to him as anyone would with half a bottle, my neighbours refused to back me because they did not want trouble even though they agreed the situation was bad. you may think why has he not retaliated, would you if the opponent was around 6ft 3" stocky built as the rest of his family now at this time he is aged 42. and this is the best bit this is what makes him the big hero, I am 5ft 6" aged 67 with arthritis, bad asthma, high blood pressure, nerve damage from a bad fall from 17ft onto my back incurring an operation, also with the results of various falls from a past occupation from ladders I now have a neurological problem where my arms and my hands shake, In other words I am knackered physically but not morally or mentally, I still have courage to fight my corner and will continue to do so, My wife who is older than myself is disabled with many illnesses and about 12 tablets a day not including sprays to keep her alive, she has heart problems to boot, I am courageous but not foolish. the latest incidences in last two months are the eldest son driving towards my daughter while in our car, nothing done no independent witnesses, then the father driving at our car with me driving the daughter the passenger with a truck, he reversed back shout abuse we caught part of it on the daughters phone, police refused to take it to see if it was his voice, saying it would be too expensive, again nothing done no independent witnesses. have we been having this problem for long, Only (9) yes nine years of hell, and no help from our lying pathetic senior police force the DPP and the anti social services. It has been the uttermost negligence of duty in protecting what we are supposed to be, some of the most vulnerable people in society. this is pathetic police Apathy at its best and heads need to roll, Lessons have not been learnt since the deaths of Fiona Pilkington and her daughter Francesca who burned themselves to death because of bullying, nor that of Colin Hudson, 68, repeatedly dialled 999 the night before his death to complain that youths were smashing up his property. Hours later, the widower, who had been subjected to a catalogue of abuse, collapsed in St Austell, Cornwall. A coroner criticised the yobs who plagued his life as relatives blamed them for 'accelerating' his death and accused police of failing to deal with the yobs. In other words he was being constantly bullied for years and the police did nothing, and still continue to do nothing Why Apathy apathy and more apathy, This is not aimed at the ordinary policeman on the beat as they only follow orders and are directed by their superiors on what action they must take, I have also had support from them, some giving their personal views supporting my family and wishing it were up to them to make the decisions.
