Why do I pay taxes to support the Modesto Police Department? I had a car vandalized by two kids. They tried to break into the car and left fingerprints on the inside of the window. A witness saw them at the car and spoke to an officer on the phone. The PD wouldn't send anyone out. After I threatened to call the news, I got someone to come out and lift prints off the inside of the car. Now it has been more than two weeks. No detective assigned and "no suspects," even though I can tell them who did it and told the officer who came out and took the fingerprints. Do I need to take the law into my own hands, cuff the criminal and bring them to the station myself to get justice?
