OK, so I was storing my stuff at my ex-wife's houses because I was homeless and didn't have the money for storage.. When we made the deal for me to store my stuff at her house I told her to not go through my stuff, that it was none of her business. Well even though she agreed she went thru my stuff anyways, and she got rid of some of it. She also sold my drums. She did all of this without my permission. She also forged and cashed three of my disability checks at $2045.00 each. I have tried to talk to her only to have her file a DV on me, which the judge thru out. I have filed a report with the police, but they said that they weren't going to do anything. So I need to know what to do next. How do I get the police to do their job? How do I get her to replace my drums. She did all of this out of anger. She did all of it while I was in jail under false arrest. I came out of jail and everything I had was stolen, throne out, or sold, so now I have nothing. I have no place to live, and no belongings thanks to my so called family and friends. And I need to sue the police for unlawful imprisonment, and medical reasons. I really need to talk to someone, but I have no money.

It sounds like you have a civil case for conversion against your ex-wife, and perhaps other claims. I can't tell if you have any claims against the police, but will trust for the moment that you do.
You should consult with an attorney experienced in civil litigation and civil rights claims (for your claims against the police). Many attorneys offer free consultations. Many attorneys will take cases on a contingent-fee basis, meaning you don't pay any fees unless you are successful, in which case the lawyer gets a percentage of your recovery. Avvo's find a lawyer tool is a good place to start. Most lawyer profiles will indicate if they provide free consultations or contingent fees.
