I live about 20 minutes walk from the CBD, in Richmond/East Melbourne. It's a great spot, i've got a lock up garage for the bike and the area is awesome, lots of little backstreets, graffiti and all that crap that I like. Only problem is... ... The Junkies. Usually I only see traces of it, a water cap, an old syringe cap etc. No sharps or anything like that. Until yesterday morning, when i heard voices outside my window at around 1100. I'm two stories up, and face a backstreet, so it was odd. A guy and a girl were having a conversation for around 10 minutes. I stick my head out the window, look directly down and there's two of them, squatting, the bloke is shoving a syringe right up his left forearm. Pretty remarkable. I just stood there, watching, and my neighbour was walking out, told them to clean up after themselves, they said they will, and he went on his merry way. The junkies still sitting there. The girl was injecting by now, not missing a beat. I look around and see two kids playing cricket just on the other side of the wall where they are. I saw red and ran into my room, grab the huge maglight and run downstairs, out through the security gate... And they're gone. Just like that. They didn't leave any mess, no sharps, no water caps or anything like that. But they would have been less than 30 seconds from the time the girl started injecting and I arrived at the spot. I'm sick of the little c**ts. I've never been directly exposed to that, but I'm still livid. There's kids around, old people, and christ knows what. I think i'm the only person in the apartment who feels strongly about it. My other neighbour said he just tells them to clean up and goes on his way too. Anyway, they'll be back. What should I do next time? Just call the coppers? Take a potshot with a .303? Run down and attack the little mongrels? Or just tell them to clean up after themselves?
