No help from authorities


For the last 3 years I have tried to get authorities to stop this but they are not interested (or are involved). We live above the bottle store and most nights cars pull up and the owners sit outside the store and gamble, make a noise, pee in the bushes, drink in public and litter. I have seen money being handed to police cars (when they come and drive off). I have seen what appears to be drugs being sold and prostitution. I do no have any proof as I am on the third floor and do not have a camera that would take good pictures. I have been to see our local Police Station Commander who gave us her cell number to be used 24/7. Only problem is that she does not answer or respond to SMS's. I have emailed our councilor who has also tried to get something done but so far the status remains the same. I have phoned 10111 and the local station numbers. Sometimes they come but do not move the people on and then just drive off. I have writen to the Department of Environment as some of the problems are theirs but they also turn a deaf ear.
