Today sucked. We came back from a few days of enjoying the eeriely nice weather here in WA (the trees are under a lot of water stress but the sunshine is nice) and came home to a burglery in progress.
I won't go into details but we confronted the burgler (not a good idea) and got the licence number (good idea.) Eventually the police obtained what we consider to be very solid proof of the burglary.
I do not know what we can expect from here. The burgler is in custody. It is a PITA to go to court (different island) but we will do it. They know where we live and we know where they live. More than one involved but one in custody. A lot of expensive stuff was stolen while we were away but we caught the person only with much less expensive stuff. The police seemed to think that whether or not it was actually my property that they were parked on was important, I don't know why. I heard but did not see them inside of my house; we confronted them at their car (or rather they confronted us.)
I'm rambling. Still shaken; unknown to me they were in my house at the same time as me, armed with a knife stolen from my house; if I had not decided that I was hearing rats and didn't want to bother going upstairs this could have had a different outcome. They damn near drove over my wife getting away.
Oh yeah, this was not a person of color nor somebody young.
Is this case going to go anywhere?
Oh yeah, those who think the world ended because you think Obama sucked at a debate? Go to hell.
