Sorry about your loss dude. But really you shouldn't feel so left out in the cold by MSN. I say this having been robbed at knife point in Houston, had my car stolen in LA, my house broken into in Dallas, attacked in the subway in NYC and various other things that some of the more pleasant folks in our society have visited upon me.

In every one of these instances the police would only pay lip service to the crime. Even when I knew who the perp was and where they could be found. The police really have an attitude about this kind of stuff. I guess they see so much of it they just become jaded to it all.

It really is a pisser though when I'm stopped by the cops for going 50 MPH in a 45 MPH zone. They seem to be able to find out anything they want to here but ask them to go and arrest the guy who stole my refrigerator, well unless I produce a video tape showing the crime in progress and personally bring the perp into the station, the cops may as well not exist.
