<<to the op, the reward does not outweigh the risk or perceived risk. in this situation, it is not worth the reward, justice.>>In all honesty, I'd be a lot more likely to head up there if the police seemed like they'd be willing to do anything at all.. However, I just keep getting things like "We don't have to deal with things under $25,000 or so".. Attorney general's office told me $50,000. I think the perception is that this is "small potatoes", and that I should just dispute this and be done with it.I also spoke today to a detective with the 32nd, and he told me that typically if they went up to this apartment, it'd probably be 6 or 7 people living in one apartment, any of who could or could not be involved with the crime. He said chances are the merchandise was already sold before the person received it, and their chances of actually tracking it down were nil. It sounded like he was telling me just to drop it.I was able to file a report with the VA state police, so for purposes of having a report, that's done.Maybe the credit card company will be able to get more people involved; I'm guessing by then it might be too late..(It may be already).Again, my main factor of annoyance is not "Oh no, I'm a wussy white person from suburbia, I'm too good to go to Harlem" -- not at all. If I gave off that perception, well, you're reading into things that aren't there. I just don't want to take the day for a trip up there, spend a day in an unfamiliar place, and just end up get blown off again like I have been everywhere else. If the detective had said "Please come down this weekend, I'd like to get this guy" it'd be a different story. But he seemed to reply kinda like I got my bike stolen. It's very frustrating -- and that's my main concern, that it seems that nobody in law enforcement really cares about incidents like these.Case in point; I had to go to the State police here because the local county police wouldn't even return my phone call; they said "call your credit card" and that was that.
