Scanner Reports 1-29-14
updated: Jan 29, 2014, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Once again it's a Happy Humpy Day Wednesday. I woke up around 5am got outta bed to make coffee and stepped on a slug first thing. I probably should have gone back to bed. I made a pot of coffee and it tasted like scrap kinda salty I poured it out cleaned the pot somewhat and made another pot. I walked outside as it got light and there was yellow tape from the front of the house down to the corner it said "Caution" on it. I went back in the house and got on Facebook.

Liberal gnats had slammed me on a picture I posted about some attack that supposedly did not happen in our present time it was an "Old picture from a country that no longer exists do the homework." One gnat said. "America no longer exists either!" I mentally shouted at the gnat as I blocked him, Jerk! I showed him. I'll put up whatever picture I like!

Saw something in the news about a haunted house in Indiana. I've lived in a couple but I had to google it to see where it is; Gary, Indiana. There was a picture taken by my own Hammond police with what looked like a figure in the window posing for the shot, or so it seemed. No one will stay in the house not public officials, Police, not the previous renter who witnessed her daughter floating above the bed, and her son walking upside down on the ceiling. I lived in a house like that on Warren Street in Hammond. It was across the alley from a funeral home. The very first day after moving in I was napping at Lunch time on a Day Bed, heard a noise opened my eyes and there was an old woman sitting on my sofa. I never spent a SOBER day in that house after that. I was good and drunk every night when I went to bed after that! That place really scared the Holy Hell outta me. I don't remember if I walked upside down on the ceiling, and if I floated at all it might have been gas keeping me afloat.

I bet they could get the Homeless to stay in that house at least ‘til spring; especially if they heated it and turned on the lights. I don't know if it's still that way, but back in The Day many abandoned homes vacant after years and years still had utilities back East, I stayed in a few myself when I was a kid. If I was homeless in the Midwest I'd stay in that house. Nice toasty and warm, it's a couple below, and the Wind chill 50 below I think just about anyone or maybe a group of people would stay there together if they was homeless in that kinda weather. Of course the way it sounds maybe not. The House is getting a lot of media attention and has even been recognized by the Great Catholic Church as being haunted. No one may be allowed to stay there.

With all this scrap going on in my head first thing in the morning I decided to pop a calming down pill and I did and I felt so much better after some time realizing that the scrappy coffee taste probably came from the snacks I was chomping on the other night while watching a Clint Eastwood movie. It's a bummer because snacks are just about all sugar or salt and I'm supposed to have neither. Does anyone in Edhat Land know where in the HELL someone could score no sodium, no sugar snacks? Besides the diabetics, the mental illness depression and anxiety, I got high blood pressure too. GO AHEAD, TROLL AWAY. There are worse things to have. Just a couple suggestions of snacks would be nice before I switch from hot wings to right wings for my snacking pleasure. I wonder what they snack on at the County Jail. Do they get snacks at the County Jail? They should as part of a Balanced Diet we want to keep our inmates healthy. I've noticed a few negative comments about how our Jail is run and I wonder how some of you would run it? How would you run the county jail? How about our City Police Department? I'm sure our police chief and Sheriff could use some pointers. Don't be bashful, share. Don't let the trolls get to you either. What would you do about the Homeless on State Street? Feel free to share what you would say to the ACLU too. Just watch the words you don't want to get deleted, and end up with me in the Penalty box. Share if you Care to Share.
