Scanner Reports 2-25-13
updated: Feb 25, 2013, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Monday-Monday and a Full Moon to boot. 12:26:06 PST. Strange things happen during the Full Moon. There is more crime people seem to go a little Looney it seems. All this last week things have been going a little Haywire one would think it would be calm before a storm but one never knows around here. On Sunday Morning there was a report of a 20 year old Sister out of control she had mom cornered in the backyard and she was stoning her. What's wrong with that? After all, it's Sunday morning People worship in different ways. Some people might see this as loony behavior it could have something to do with the Full Moon maybe it's an omen. Someone swiped my LA Times on Sunday my omen I'm just glad they didn't use it to wipe and put it back. I ordered another one heard the guy cussing as he delivered the 2nd one to my door, it must be my fault it got ripped off.

Fryday I'm walking past 211 South Milpas there's 4 transients sitting on the sidewalk in front of the bakery panhandling. It actually looked like they were sitting in front of a cafe drinking with no chairs, or table. One of the guys Pirate, an old drinking buddy, waves and I wave back. Even though I'm sober I don't think I'm better than anyone else, I still talk to my old drinking buddies. I wave and keep going because I'm exercising, get to the corner to cross the street and a gal whom was part of the group catches up to me. "Nice Day" she says, I agree, "It's wonderful to live in Paradise", she continues I nod in agreement I know what's coming the light changes I briskly walk away she catches up, "Hm, You smell goood!" she adds. I walked into a store she followed me in heading for the cooler but I did a Roger Dodger Fake and out the door I went, I want no Hooker getting my last 20 Bucks! I got the HELL outta Dodge heading North on Milpas.

Saturday Morning the SBPD, and Cal Trans Crew are behind 211 South Milpas cleaning up encampments I as well as the rest of my neighbors who were in direct contact with these HELL RAISERS are grateful. They will be back but so will the police sooner or later the group will figure it's off limits and move on. There will always be one or two transients hiding in the bushes getting shut eye on the property they ain't no big deal. But when a group comes around they take over. Your property becomes their turf and you play HELL trying to get control of your land, or the land you rent. At any rate I notified Sharon Byrne and the Milpas Community Association that several of my neighbors were being tortured by this group of HELL RAISERS, who were keeping them up all hours of the night. Some people actually DO WORK in this HOOD I know it's hard to believe. The MCA took care of the problem once it was reported to them now it's quieter around here at least for a couple days.

I have been noticing now for some time that there are people around here that have a problem with homeless people being called Transients. Some people seem to think that calling a homeless person a transient is like calling them a racial slur. I quit calling homeless people Transients for a while. I called them Homeless Types, but those two words are kinda long and I really don't see Transient as being a bad word or a racial slur. The word Transient is actually in the Online Merriam Webster Dictionary, I have never seen a Racial Slur in the Dictionary. It comes between one's opinion and a dictionary, I believe the dictionary. This explanation is the result of a letter to the Editor of our local Sentinel where the editor was criticized for using the word Transient. I use the word all the time as I hear it straight from the police scanner. Why don't these people call up the police department and tell them they don't like the word Transient?

My mother lives near Chicago in Hammond, Indiana. One might as well say it's Chicago because there are a lot of bodies dumped in Hammond. She was watching some interview where a man from Santa Barbara Ca. was being interviewed in Chicago. She didn't get his name but he must have been a comedian, because he told the interviewer that Santa Barbara California was the Murder Capital of the world. In Santa Barbara the guy said there are 2 murders every day. My mother axed me if this was true she was all upset about it, as if someone was taking away our title. I assured her it wasn't true. Hammond, Gary, and the Chicago area have had that title for many years at least were known for something...BERWIN!
