Together with another police response
and a letter
from the local administration, this document constitutes the official response to numerous written petitions and complaints which are provided in our materials (see an application
about a robbery, a complaint
about the neighbors' hostile behavior, a demand
that the neighbors' room be searched, a complaint
about an assault committed by the neighbors, and another similar document
). The person who wrote this application has also penned dozens of other, similar ones.
On the one hand, harassment, robbery, and assault all occur in communal apartments. On the other hand, precinct police and psychiatrists are aware that the conditions of communal life exacerbate suspiciousness in older people, in some instances leading to delusions of persecution.
