To the editor: Our police are suppose to “protect and serve” the public, but do they?
I contacted the Alaska State Troopers about some potentially stolen items and asked them to send someone out to investigate so that I wouldn’t inadvertently sell stolen items to the public. They refused. As a long-time Alaskan I was surprised and dismayed. Shouldn’t the police investigate potentially stolen items when presented with the opportunity?
I believe the police should have taken the opportunity, the chance no matter how slim, to solve crimes left on their books and hopefully return the — if any — stolen items to their rightful owners. Isn’t that what they are paid to do?
