“The noise makes me want to go outside and hit the person responsible in the head and destroy their car radio. … The last time I reported noise to the police non-emergency phone line, it was about a car honking. When I went to ask the person to stop, they threatened to beat me. I told the police and they already knew who the person was and said that a police report wouldn’t do anything. The police told me to never approach those who make noise and to call the police instead, but they never do anything when I report noise! Police are complacent and enable noisy criminals.”
