Re: “The Saga of Three Points

Oh and don't bother trying to complain to high level Sheriff he doesn't care either. Yes, I've actually called his office and it's a complete waste of time. This Sheriff continually gets re-elected yet the crimes soars. If that isn't a sign of corruption I don't know what is. He's a liberal and when the senator got shot here he said the reason was because of right-wing rhetoric --- wow that's about the worst comment a person can say as an excuse. She had no police where she was speaking when shot - maybe that had something to do with it Mr. Dupnik? Maybe your lack of presence has something to do with it and the way you let the crime get swept under the mat?

Re: “The Saga of Three Points

My father (deceased) was an ex Marine that fought in the Korean war and my grandfather that settled the area was a mason, a contractor, and a prominent member of his community in Michigan. He settled this area because he found water on it. We are not all criminals out here but that's what the government acts like and they don't do anything to make our lives pleasant here. My grandfather put in the roads, the well water, the electric, and phone system the government has done nothing in support and this was back in the 60's. Now a bunch of trailer trash move in here that use drugs and use it as a base of operation to do crime and use drugs. Thanks to the local Sheriff's and worthless government that let them take over! My grandfather was even a deputy Sheriff in Michigan (reserve) so the Pima Sheriff can shove it! They pretend everyone is bad (so they won't help) or that crime isn't that bad but they know better. They are the one's that have condemned the area.

Re: “The Saga of Three Points

The officer says people are making stuff up is covering up the crime problem. I've called them many times and they won't come out in time --- there's no crime because the cops never show up. For disturbing the peace - people that play loud music the cops will show up hours later - and then they say oh well the musics off and they leave - they don't even talk to the people. I've had times where I couldn't hear my own tv for hours but the cops don't care. This happens at night too when you are trying to sleep. They would rather fight with you (the complainer) than the people who are doing some crime or disturbing the peace. I think they just want to appear cool the the criminals and they are too lazy to drive across a dirt road. So you have criminals that hide in these areas and that's the areas the cops refuse to go. Look I don't call the cops because I have nothing better to do - I want to live in a better neighborhood - the neighborhood my grandfather settled but cops don't care about that - they just condemn the area and put their nose in the air.

Re: “The Saga of Three Points

The Sheriff's out here might as well be on the criminals side. It's a rural area out here - it doesn't mean that people out here are all anti-government. It's simply undeveloped because that's what the government wants. I personally emailed the mayor to pave the roads and they won't do it. They won't collect trash out here either - you have to bring your trash to Ryan field which is about 10 miles from where I live so owning a pick up is a must. People that live out here have to pay the same taxes as everyone else in Tucson / Arizona and they are not represented. The government is corrupt - it's not the people as much as it is the government but yeah it attracts a lot of bad people as a consequence. There's nothing wrong with the area - there's something wrong with the government and particularly the law enforcement (Sheriff especially) which never does anything to criminals but they will arrest you in heart beat if they don't like you for something pety. I was arrested out here for defending myself when 2 men followed me home - road rage type of thing. They said they pretended the were going to run me over with their truck so I fired 2 warning shots into the ground.. I was arrested and they didn't even take down my story or try to look for the guys. They threatened me in jail to plea to lessor charge of disturbing the peace or they would press charges of a felony use of a firearm - That's Pima Sheriff for you.
