  •  and what should they have done? break the door (0+ / 0-)

    down without a warrant and without evidence?

    people on this site scream about the over reach of the police, yet that is exactly what you are implying should have been done.  

    it is easy to second guess AFTER the fact - unfortunately, life doesn't always work that way - it isn't always as easy as seen on tv or in the movies.

      is this disgusting update:

      Neighbors of accused kidnapper Ariel Castro have revealed they saw three naked young girls crawling in the backyard of his house on all fours with dog leashes around their necks and three men controlling them, but amazingly police never responded to their call.

      The shocking revelation is one of a number of stories to have emerged from neighbors who say they reported unusual goings-on at Castro's Seymour Avenue, Cleveland home to local police who either didn't respond or didn't enter the house when they did show up.

      ...

      Israel Lugo, who lives two houses down from Castro, said he heard pounding on some of the doors of the house, which had plastic bags on the windows, in November 2011.

      In that instance police responded, but officers only knocked on the front door and left when no one answered.

      'They walked to the side of the house and then left,' he told USAToday.

      Another neighbor, Nina Samoylicz, who lives three doors down, also reported seeing a naked woman in his backyard two years ago, but police didn't take her seriously when she reported the incident.

      ...
      A third call came from some women who lived in a nearby apartment building.

      The women, who haven't been identified told Lugo they called police because they saw three young girls crawling on all fours naked with dog leashes around their necks. Three men were controlling them in the backyard.

      The women told Lugo they waited two hours but police didn't respond to their calls.

      And by the way, I've never been among those claiming "over reach of the police."

        you aren't one of the ftp crowd.  i apologize if i assumed you were.  i know better than to make assumptions without checking.

        that is horrific that the police didn't respond.  looks like someone in the "force" also "made assumptions" - with tragic consequences.

        i hope the neighbors push this issue to hold those who did nothing accountable.
