You should talk to an attorney about this for professional legal advice. Police departments typically don't like being embroiled in lawsuits, so the presence of or contact from an attorney should jolt them into action.

You could sue for right to safety of household, but that won't actually get you anywhere.

"right to safety of household" is not a valid legal claim for a lawsuit.

You'll lose for sure, but if you want to go right ahead. No one's stopping you

Wow, since you have his address, you should roll up to his house with a baseball bat, knock on the front door. Then when the thief answers... ask him if he wants to resolve the issue over hitting some baseballs at a bating cage. Who knows? Maybe you guys were supposed to meet and be best friends.

Well then I'm sure if police raided his house they'd be fortunate to find gangster related items too. You'd be doing the world a favor

You cannot sue for inaction, but you can complain about it, perhaps to a newspaper or TV reporter looking for a story.
