Good policing by Sunnyside's finest?

Last week the police came knocking at my door late at night. I was told someone had called and complained about me. When I asked who it was that had called, the officer said, "We don't know." Surprised, I blurted out, "How can the police respond to a call from an anonymous caller?" Apparently offended, the officer started to say, "You don't tell us..." before he caught himself and explained that it was not required for a caller to identify him or herself. The caller will be asked but is not "obligated" to respond to the question, I was told. I wonder if this leniency is only applicable here in Sunnyside? Now I know why the police have come twice late at night following a malicious, unfounded report from a cowardly individual. I am 70 years old, a missionary who does not engage in gossip and live by myself. Oh, I forgot to mention that I am Asian-American, an easy target for slanderers and the apartment manager, it seems. /s/ Betsy Tan, Sunnyside
