I’m writing to you out of anger and frustration. On the evening of November 12, 2022, at round 11:20 pm, I used to be woke up from my deep sleep by extraordinarily loud music in Albion Entrance. You see, Editor, there’s a bar (Meals Court docket) situated reverse Cropper college dam and on the weekends the bar is crowded with patrons. Round 11 pm, the patrons streamed out however remained on the road. Final evening, November 12, one of many patrons opened the trunk of his automobile and commenced blasting music. I’m of appreciable age, however I’ve to say, Editor, that I assumed the music was a loud explosion. I by no means heard such loud music in all my life.
Editor, right here is the issue: we known as the police at Albion and New Amsterdam to report the extraordinarily loud music. We known as New Amsterdam as a result of we do not need confidence within the police on the Albion police station. In about ten minutes, a pickup truck drove out of the Albion police station, which is about two blocks away from the thunderous music. The police officer stopped by the automobile taking part in the music. He didn’t step out of his car. The music was lowered however not stopped. The police officer made a u flip again in the direction of the Albion police station. Editor, it’s unbelievable, however the music was turned on full throttle once more whereas the police officer was a couple of minutes away.
The residents of Albion do not need confidence within the police at Albion Police Station. At least, that police officer ought to have ordered the whole cease of the music and probably arrest the perpetrator and impound the automobile. The police officer, as a result of he did not carry out his fundamental authorized obligation needs to be sanctioned. The behaviour of the police officer isn’t acceptable.
Editor, in terms of music in autos, there may be anarchy on the roads of Albion. The Albion police don’t implement the legal guidelines. And legal guidelines with out enforcement are ineffective.
For sure, until this matter is addressed, one could very properly find yourself experiencing the protest in opposition to the police at Albion police station that occurred a number of years in the past.
Editor, I merely don’t perceive why and the way a bar is allowed to operate and be very disruptive in the midst of a residential space. I hope this letter catches the attention of the Commissioner of Police and the Minister of House Affairs.
