I just reported an incident to the police for the second time

and I wonder, have I helped? Has the information I’ve given assisted in a catching a thief? An abuser? A murderer? My CSI fantasy plays out in my mind, the suave detective identifying clues that put that serial killer behind bars. But then I realise the police here don’t do shit. And then I think about this movie that’s just come out about a man from adelaide who would torture and kill gay men and anyone else he thought in his sordid mind was not worth living on this earth. How could so much have gone on without it being reported, or noticed sooner? The bodies were in barrels in his backyard…

And I hope, beyond all measure, that I helped those kids, and that woman.
