    I Called the Cops

    For the last 3 nights this car would start blaring it's alarm at around 1AM and it would just go off for hours (until the morning I assume when the a*sshole owner would go to work)...

    ... anyway, I had it yesterday, at 3AM the alarm blaring so loud I could barely drown it out with my CD player on very loud. I called 311 to complain and they said if it's an alarm I had to call 911.

    So I called 911, had to give my phone number and name to them, but then for almost an hour the alarm kept blaring...

    ... then I heard a big truck pull up so I looked out my window... a huge NYPD truck (not a tow truck, some emergency truck) and a squad car pulled up... 4 or 5 cops got out with their flashlights pointed at the car, they broke in the car, opened the hood and pulled out the alarm or whatever controls the alarm.

    Then they left a ticket on the car. I wonder what that a*sshole car owner got ticketed for and how much. Anyway, they were there for about 30 minutes and were making a decent amount noise... no one showed up to say it was their car.

    I hope he/she learns a lesson. I slept well last night.

    What is the freaking point of having a car alarm if you are a f*rucking moron who doesn't even respond to it?

    I wanted to slash the tires actually, but that would have been messed up.

    Nice. We have to call the police nearly daily about loud stereos that show up at the 24 hr store next door. Some people apparently have nothing better to do with their lives than sit in a parking lot at 4AM with their music blaring.

    It was cool when one of the bastards got towed, though 99% of the time the cops never show up.

    I think I hate barking dogs almost as much as I hate car alarms. I have to say my little "panic" button has come in handy from time to time when I *blonde moment* forget where I parked my car. But dogs, mercy. My neighbor who is a cop has these two dogs that bark at every little thing all the time. And what's worse they'll fight or play fight who cares it's annoying as heck till all hours too. They always seem to bark and fight between 5 am and 8 am. Of course when I get the best sleep. Who do you call when it's a cop's dog??

    That's why I love living in a high rise!

    Still, let us know what happens tonight. You guys don't have a non-emergency number to call? 911 seems a bit drastic (Chicago has 311 for non-emergencies and 911 for emergencies).

    Good job, though. I wouldn't hesitate to call the cops if my sleep was being interrupted.

    My neighbor does that.

    Damned college kids. If your gonna have a party don't block off the entire street. Keep your ****ty ricers out of the way of traffic and don't be screwing your ****** girlfriend on the front lawn. And your MUSIC, I personally don't like listening to eminem *****ing about his mommy at 2AM.


    Thank you SDPD for breaking that one up before there was a confrontation...

    There is an option. My husband thought he might pry a few slats from his back fence (which leads out to the park) hoping they might run away. Stupid dogs they'd probably stay though. Or worse, come crap on our front lawn!

    I used to live where I had this crazy neighbor that would let his stupid deaf
    Dalmation out at all hours of the day and night. I swear that ******** dog would yodel
    under my bedroom window. I'd think nothing of collaring the stupid canine, going back to his masters house, and ringing the doorbell until the idiots got up from their drunk/drug induced slumber. As soon as the door opened , I shoved the dog inside, grab the door knob and close the door.

    The gods do sometimes smile upon us! Reminds me of the time the next-door neighbor's house alarm went of in the morning while they were out of town. It was one of those really loud "WOW-WOW-WOW-WOW" constantly going things and no one would shut it off;of course the noisemaker was on our side of their house. The alarm company showed, the police showed but no one would go over and cut or pull a wire. D*** what a scr*wup! I was ready to climb up their roof and cut the d*** thing my self by that evening when they finally were able to get ahold of a relative and get permission to shut the thing off.

    I love hearing that the police actually broke into the car and yanked the alarm wires! Good GAWD I hate alarms when they are ignored.

    A month ago I had to call the police. Neighbor downstairs was playing her music loud. So loud I heard it clearly. On top of that she would replay the same song about 5 times, and then go to the next song. Just before the cop showed up, the volume got lowered. He came to my door first, guess dispatch messed up. He asked just how loud it was. Should have seen his face when I told him that they were listening to "Angels among us" by Alabama, and "Rocket Man" by Elton John. Stupid girl didn't answer the door, even though his partner could see her sitting in her living room. I am just waiting for the next time.

    Glad at least you got a remedy to your solution.

    You could definitely solve quite a few of the aforementioned problems with that. Ever shot it? It sure kicks up the dust. I'd love to see a Honda Element, Chrysler 300, H2, Toyota Scion or similar stupidly ugly car that the owner thinks is chic or something after taking a full magazine from Mr. Barrett.

    Some of my neighbors like listening to or playing music loud enough for everyone else down here to hear.. but not all that often, and not in the middle of the night... usually.

    My neighbors college aged kids used to party on 'till crazy-oh-thirty o'clock in the morning. My Dad got simply fed up one night after asking them to tone it down a bit every day for a week. One party night, without turning any lights on, he opened an upstairs window and tossed a couple "M-80" type firecrackers into their backyard.

    The stereo suddenly went quiet, the local police showed up (Boston suburb). They never did have a party over there again. My Dad never did tell them what happened either...got along fine for years...

    I play my music loud...so I guess I am an offender. But we live in a rural-like area so nobody complains bout' it. But there is this kid in my 4th period class who has a head the size of a watermelon who listens to his headphones way to loud, so loud you can hear every damn word. One time I got sick of it...so I planned. After 4th period the ninth graders go to lunch and we get to leave our stuff in the 4th period class. So when he went to lunch I went back in class, looked around for a teacher, made sure nobody was around and got his CD player. I took it home and and opened it up with a screwdriver and ripped out every thing inside the CD player so it was basically an empty shell. Then I snapped his CD in half and put it into the shell. The next day in school I arrived a couple minutes early and threw it into his locker. I never did see his reaction but he doesn't have a CD player any more...thank god.

    We have some similar kinds of neighbors--I've called the cops on them several times, but they don't seem to care. I was thinking of stepping things up to a homemade potato launcher, but M-80s might be a lot more effective! I might try that this summer! I wonder if I could somehow also use M-80s to get them to remove the rotting sofas from their front porch...

    I wonder why his head is so big? Maybe he's got a brain tumor that is affecting his hearing.

    No he doesn't. He is just downright irritating and he thinks he is better then anybody. I wonder why he has freinds...it keeps me up at night to this day. He also is going out with the one of the ugliest chicks in school.

    She sounds tolerant of loud music and big watermelon heads, she must have something going for her. Maybe she has great inner beauty, and a hearing problem so his loud headphones don't bother her.

    Those type of people piss me off, especially on public transit. The point of headphones is so we don't have to listen to your ****ty music and you don't have to listen to my wonderful music.

    We really don't need to know what kind of ganstar poseur you are listening to rap music so loud, the bus driver in front can't hear the engine.
