I have been coming out the supermarket before and if there is a police car nearby they call me over and ask me to show my ID card for no good reason at all. Another time my apartment was broken into and I went to report it, just given a form told fill it out and that was about as far as their interest went because as I disturbed the burglar he didn't get away with much but some cash and small electrical items. One time I was in Jerusalem I saw a backpack next to a wall as your supposed to do I told the police about this unattended bag they reply was TODAH and did nothing. They didn't ask me to show them where it was, they didn't radio in the fact an unattained backpack had been left. I have always thought the police in this country are useless. Hired municipal security are better than the police sometimes.
