The police called me.
Hey guys, Sponge here. I haven't been around too much lately, but here is something "interesting" that I want to rant about, and you all are such a great audience.
Some of you may know that back in October, my apartment was robbed while I was at my lake house. They took lots of stuff, including a S&W 1911 accurized, and a little 9mm cobra. Thank God I had my python with me at the lake!
Anyhow, I get a call while I'm at work; it's a detective. I was surprised to hear from her, since I have NO faith in law enforcement whatsoever. This detective tells me that they recovered my 9. Now is where the story becomes unbelievable.
Some 19 year old punk goes up to a house party on the southside
to pick up his girlfriend and his sister. The guy working the door won't let him in, so he pulls out MY gun and lets a couple go on the house. (while his sister and girlfriend are still inside BTW) The punk jumps in a car and takes off. Some good samaritan who happened to see the whole thing, jumps in his car, calls the police, and starts following the punk.
The samaritan follows the punk to an alley a few miles from the house party. The punk gets out of his car, and exchanges words with a group of people in the alley. The punk pulls out MY gun again, and lets loose on the group in the alley. The group draw their CCW and return fire
By this time, the police are on scene, thanks to the good samaritan. The group scatters, and the punk runs, tossing my gun. The cops catch the punk and a couple of the other guys, but the police say "we didn't see him toss the gun".
The police say they have the punk's girlfriend on tape saying " I saw him with a little green gun" and they have witnesses (the doorman at the party, the samaritan), but there were no prints on the gun. They could only hold the punk for 72 hours, and my gun has to get tested for his DNA. (if you've seen the news lately, the WI DNA lab is a joke... this may take years)
Now here is the real clencher: This punk already murdered someone with a stolen gun when he was 15, and got off cause he was a juvenile! He is now out on the streets again, and probably already has another gun. Yet we have people sitting in county for PARKING TICKETS.
