    Maybe if the IMPD officers that are supposedly "patroling" where actually doing there jobthings like this could be prevented. it funny bc at any given time you can find upwards of 6 police cars in the parking lot of the starbucks in Irvington, off Washington st. all of them running. i have seen as a many as 12 police cars in the lot and parked for at least an hour not responding to any calls.

      LOL @ your name! I think you misunderstood what the Resident Citizen was saying. No cops don't know when some idiot is going to commit murder….BUT if they would pull themselves away from that coffee social on a regular basis and patrol these problem areas. Some of these crimes could be cut back and or responded to quicker. Being in the area to respond to the crimes quicker would in fact increase there case closing rate. Don't you think? Besides I don't like the idea of my tax dollars paying for these guys to sit at Starbucks with there cars running burning unnecessary gas.
      Resident Citizen Maybe they keep the cars running so it burns up the gas that would have other wise been used to patrol the streets…HMMM!

    And yes there is always a pack of police officers at coffee shops or at the gas station posted up like they are doing a great job.

    Funny how black folks get on here using the "N" word. I dont care if its slang or not. If a white person uses the word, blacks want to kill them. Talking about "nigga's" & "whitey" & Honkey" just shows your true ignorance. Which is what the "N" word ACTUALLY means. IGNORANT. People talking about whites dont care about blacks killing each other. Well, thats the pot calling the kettle black now isnt it?? Sorry, no pun intended. Why the hell should whites care when the blacks are killing themselves off?? Its not us doing it…its your own friggin kind!!! Apparently, blacks dont give a damn either or it wouldn't be happening everyday!! Oh, but of course, even thats the "White Mans Fault", right? Is there ANYTHING blacks do that is actually THEIR fault?????
