Scanner Reports 1-20-14
updated: Jan 20, 2014, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Monday-Monday. Another Bright Shiny Santa Barbara Day. I hope everyone had a great Weekend. Mine was OK. Passed another milestone in my life - 11 years. CAUTION STOP HERE AND RESUME WHEN THE SCANNER RONI REPORTS BEGIN. Without the Booze the other day some guy asked me if I was drinking again. He wouldn't axe me that if I was really drinking HA! I was a Rootin Tootin HELL Raiser when I was drinking and everyone knew when I was drinking. No one axed, they got the HELL away from me. I had the uncanny ability to do things drunk I'd never do sober. Yea I might go to jail but I always got out and if you did me wrong I'd go looking for ya. DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU!!!The last day I drank, I ripped off Shakey's store for all the Coors Light 24 ouncers he had; will about 60 of em anyway, I took an overdose, police came along with the old lady, they got me to Cottage where I told dirty jokes, went thru my interview with flying colors, got released, came home and barfed blood all over myself then passed out. STOP U-TURNS ALLOWED. I was very ill for a few days my ex-girlfriend took care of me; she was a nurse. I came to and found the beer I took from Shakey. I almost started drinking again, but C.J. wouldn't let me. She was taking care of me for a couple days then she'd let me fly on my own. When I was drinking I'd pray all the time to quit but couldn't. I was always afraid I'd do something stupid and hurt a bunch of innocent people as I almost did once but still couldn't quit the drink. It was like being in HELL except there ain't no cold beer in HELL. At least I don't think there's cold beer in HELL. CAUTION DRUNKIN LOG SPEWING. After a couple days went to an AA Meeting but a guy told me I couldn't take my calming medicine and call myself sober so I never went to another AA meeting. DETOUR. Booze made me violent when I drank, I did really stupid things when drinking but I never did those things after taking a lorazepan, or anything else for that matter. I went on with my life one day turned into another and another I couldn't believe I was staying sober without AA, and wasn't drinking. I had stayed off the booze for a period of years before while going to AA but never without, although I still had the tools. I knew how to stay sober. Got a part time job stocking booze and never thought about drinking it. That alone was a damn miracle and there have been many since. The only real bummer is that I feel physical pain and I'm not an ars kicker anymore. Now I'm a damn Teddy Bear and I have compassion for idiots. I can't raise my leg up to kick anyone's ars, but the thought is there and that's what counts. I guess I can talk a lot of SMACK! Now I hear things on the Scanner about others, a lot of it is the same things I went through and did and I find myself feeling for them what I did not feel for myself at the time I went thru it. Sometimes what I hear makes me cry because I can feel people's fear as I hear it over the Scanner. I pray a lot for others. Especially when I hear Code Blues, or children having difficulty breathing, other medical emergencies, or people with terminal illnesses. I feel for the idiots too because I did a lot of stupid stuff too. Damn Compassion WHY ME? I wouldn't be able to stick anyone in a WOODCHIPPER without crying, it sucks!

Anyway here's your Scanner Roni Reports, FRYday:

  • First thing I heard on FRYday was a high speed chase out of Santa Maria someone took a 1997 Honda accord and they was trying to get away from the CHP in it and crashed into a ditch and got caught. I think it was the 4200 Block of 11th street cause code 2 medics responded for a finger injury.

  • First I heard this was an Assault and then a medical 1200 Anacapa but ended up at Starbucks where the older fella threw blood up everywhere some people thought it was funny and made jokes about it. I got kinda angry about that of course it's funny to some people because the guy might have been a homeless drunk and residents don't like homeless drunks in Santa Barbara so of course some residents are going to take delight in the suffering of another. Then I realized that they would not be laughing if it was them or someone they loved but then again there are a lot of punk trolls in Santa Barbara and I can't expect people to be normal or mature, and this includes myself of course not the punk troll part.

    Will I've been making an issue of these camp/warming fires for as long as I've been doing these Scanner Reports. Some people don't seem to listen I don't know what can be done about them maybe if the residents get together and contact someone about it more will be done. I know there is clean up alongside the freeways and RR Tracks on a regular basis. Maybe we should build a police sub-station alongside the Rail Road Tracks. I'm joking, but I don't know. I've heard of two serious warming fires involving the Homeless. There was one up North a few years ago someone was killed.

    Anyway, that's enough outta me for now have a great Monday and Dog willing we will see you on Wednesday. Later, Roger
