All those police officers for an overdose? I understand the medics and the rescue squad and maybe a couple squad cars... But 5 squad cars especially when most officers late at night travel with partners?

Oh dear... law enforcement experts are weighing in on how many woodchucks it should take to chuck a pile of wood they haven't even seen before. I wonder how well we would do our jobs with the court of public opinion looking over our shoulders at every opportunity.

I think some of the comments making fun of lawenforcement are really funny, but what would be funnier if all of the police left town for acouple weeks just to see how some of the people would fair..

As if public scrutiny of public servants is somehow a bad thing - maybe if there were more public scrutiny we wouldn't have city employees able to embezzle $80 or $100K per year in parking fines for 6 years. And maybe the city and county wouldn't have to pay out huge law suit awards for police misconduct.

So by all means, let the police do whatever they please - they never have to pay for it, we tax payers do.

They did not make the statement I did but had I known that was what the question was about in the first place I wouldn't have answered it.. The police work hard if you don't believe it buy a scanner.

They ride solo, even at night unless they're a specialty unit. Only local agency that regularly runs two man cars at night are the CHP.

I, snivel whine, bawl, don't know bc I'm distraught over the government spending any money. I just can't BELEIVE that they sent more than one-half of a patrol car, a patrol BIKE would have been more like it. For that matter couldn't they just have WALKED over there? I mean, how far could it be in a small town like SB?

An ambulance? For an addict? For anyone? OMG we have to pay for that too. Oh, an ambulance is a private enterprise, nothing to do with government? Well color me blind! OK back to the patrol cars, now if they would just run this show like I want them to, we would all be SAVED! From all the bad stuff in the world like the war on Christmas.

You really need to mind your own business when it comes to my life. You might have worked in a department somewhere so your saying all police departments are the same since you worked in a police agency "You know" Will I don't believe you..You people just want to start fights next time you need the police call someone else like yourselves since you need to know everything..

Roger, don't take the bait from these blog-trolls... You only post a FRACTION of all the calls, crime, medicals, accidents and other emergencies that go down in SB. It's better these polly-anna's don't know all the garbage that happens in their little paradise, it will ruin the image of the American Riviera...

"see exactly how hard the police work... at making something out of nothing, jumping to conclusions, making mountains out of molehills etc."

versus

"You only post a FRACTION of all the calls, crime, medicals, accidents and other emergencies that go down in SB. It's better these polly-anna's don't know all the garbage that happens in their little paradise, it will ruin the image of the American Riviera..."

Which is it - making mountains out of molehills or the mountains are ginormous? Can't have it both ways.

And if you keep on whining about the police, why the heck is there no whining about the farm and oil subsidies to really filthy rich people? Is it because there may be unions for the poorer tax users? How hypocritical.

If the whining is supposed to change people's minds ---- it ain't working. So just give it up.

I don't give up..I have nothing to prove I'm unaffected by your so called attempt of intelluxical intimadation because you think your smarter than me and I don't give a poopy either..Don't look up the Sky is Falling...

Other than the whiners and wankers who constantly criticize and poke fun at the police on this site there are some who understand the dynamic of police work. There may be a dozen reasons to have 5 police cars there. Sometimes it takes five policemen just to pick someone up who is passed out on drugs. There may have been safety reasons, access problems, or other people involved who may have posed a threat, etc. Until you know anything about a radio call beyond that which is given out over the dispatch radio, don't seize upon every opportunity to inject some kind of disrespectful wise-crack"

Good gravy.. Roger don't even pay attention to the Negative Nellies. You do a fabulous job and you are as bright or brighter than most. You are also a very kind man.

I live in the Eastside neighborhood where this post began. I am glad police responded, glad Roger covered it in this scanner report.

Happy Holidays!

There was also a response there on Sunday on a medical so I think if there was an od it might have been accidental medical calls are not always what they seem.

The 479578P comment was not for you RD. I don't believe you said either of those comments quoted. Next time I'll add, this is not for RD.

Merry Christmas, and thanks for all you do.
