Graffiti- Spray painting a house.

Can someone explain why, when a friend and myself saw a 14 year old trouble maker spray paint the side of the house right across the street. With us sitting there, we caught him. I called the police, they came awhile later. We talked, they handcuffed him. That's the only time he showed any emotion at all. He cried, policed ask if that was my building.

Can someone explain why, when a friend and myself saw a 14 year old trouble maker spray paint the side of the house right across the street. With us sitting there, we caught him. I called the police, they came awhile later. We talked, they handcuffed him. That's the only time he showed any emotion at all. He cried, policed ask if that was my building. It wasn't so the cop told me there was nothing they could do unless the owner of the house was there to sign the complaint???? What the hell, the owners were out for the night and we couldn't get ahold of them. So away then went, kid in the cop car. But nothing was going to happen. What about that we witnessed this CRIME. If this is what happens, no punishment no trouble. The punks and trouble makers know. The chances they will get off is great! ( we are in Mayfair area)

    The sad thing is, if the parents cared enough to set a good example, they would make that child clean it off. No matter how long it took. But my guess is that since the kid is left to roam without any supervision, nothing will be done and he will do worst things in the future. Parent have to be made responsible for their children's act. But I am old school also.

Electrical

I just received a com ed bill for 3 times more then usual. Com ed insists that it's correct but it can't possible be. Even running the ac last year two months straight without turning it off the bill was still 60% less then the bill I just received.

Can anyone recommend a electrician or what to do

    I am having the same prob with Peoples gas. Have a 2 flat home all day have heat cooking gas, water heater and dryer. Yet my bill is consistently lower than my tenants and they just have heat a cooking gas. No one actually cooks. The thermostat is on 68 for maybe 9 hrs . Rest of time its 62. People were gone 4 2 weeks last mo heat was completly down 2 58 and still their bill was 2X mine. thermo is locked and set so they cannot fiddle around with it. Gas Co states that the more you use the more u pay DUUGH! Like I'm 2 stupid to understand it. Logic states that my bill s/b higher not theirs.Any suggestions??
