I took a quick shower and then went back to the police station to retrieve the 'report no'. A different policeman now but he was well briefed of the my situation. He said sorry for what happened and made a few phonecalls to the other station where I was supposed to lodge a criminal report. He then gave me the name of the inspector and before I left he said, "Today is not your day maam but thank god you weren't hurt".
I left and made my way to the other station. It was about 15 minute drive away. I parked my car and went to the place specified by the previous officer. I found the place and looked over a group of policeman were having such a great chat over "I don't really care what the topics were". They all had ciggarettes on their hands or smoking away or doing something with the ciggy hanging on their mouths like the 'gangsters/taikor' in Chinese movies. I asked for the officer who was supposed to attend to my case. They looked at my report from the previous police station and asked me to wait for this inspector coz he went out.
I waited and waited and waited....from 9:00am to 10:30am..no sign of the man.
Another 'inspector' asked me what was going on and I repeated my story. He made another phone call and asked me to wait and gave me some excuses. Another guy was a little bit more diplomatic and told me that usually these inspectors were caught in courtroom sessions and I had no choice but to wait for him.
I waited and waited...I was thinking why was I even bother...I just want to get this over and done with. I did the police report so that these police enforcement will keep the peace as they promised during the recent General Election. I want to contribute something to the society by reporting this incident so that people can be more cautious and the authority will not sit down on their asses. I thought we want to eliminate crime....
While waiting, there were people started coming to look for the same guy I was waiting for. I over heard their cases and I got the sudden chill listening to the cases. Holy..what have we become? What happened to the high morale and the 'religious' being that we are? What happened to the 'loving' society that we claimed we are? In my mind I kept on having flashes of the face of man who mugged me this morning. He was evil. I was scared to death.
Finally the man showed up and I was asked to his office and made my statement. I handed to him the piece of my previous report and I was not that talkative. He asked me a few questions and re-typed some of the informations that he gathered from the previous report. He 'promised' if there were any lead...he will call me. I told him, I was just happy to be alive. We both said thank you and I left.
I made my way to the mall nearby contemplating on buying a treadmill instead of jogging out there making my self available to the criminal b******* .
I was mugged twice this month.Another incident was in my blog~~~> UNFORTUNATE . Something was definitely not right...
I came home feeling numb.
