Does anyone else think this will turn out good? Can't depend on the police and can't defend against criminals. D'Oh! | :doh:

http://news.msn.com/us/chicago-police-no-longer-responding-to-all-911-calls[^]

In 2012, the Alternate Response Section dealt with 74,000 reports. Victims of crime had the choice of filing a report over the phone or requesting that an officer attend in person when one was available. That number of reports is expected to double, but the choice of asking for an officer to attend will no longer be available.

So don't expect a cop unless he will be able to make arrest. I say, why even arrest the guy? The clearing rate for murders is under 25% anyways. If you kill someone, you will get away with it 75% of the time without being arrested. Even higher for every other violent crime. This is clearance rate, not even conviction rate. It just means the police mark it as solved and "clear" it.
