Scanner Reports 5-12-14
updated: May 12, 2014, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Monday Again. How's it going everyone? Was kicking back last week when I heard skateboarders taking over the porch next door, doing their thang. It was kinda loud but people can get kinda loud when they are having fun and noise doesn't bother me too much. If it did I sure would not live in the HOOD that I do. I got up after a few moments to get a cup of coffee across the street and saw the kids that were skateboarding were Hispanic in their early 20's. A couple worked at a shop nearby that is not always busy owned by their family they were just doing their thang. A couple days later I went into the shop for water and one of the kids asked me about "The right to refuse service to someone." I told him you have the right to refuse service to anyone you want, I believe but get a little sign from Home Improvement and put it in the window just in case. He told me the other day he and his friends were skateboarding across the way and afterwards a customer from another shop nearby entered his shop and told him off. He told me just about everything she said including racist remarks. "You people are what is killing Milpas Street" she said. Hearing that really pissed me off. She assumed because he's Hispanic that he and his friends were gang members. I have known these people for a long time and they are not gang members. This woman went on and on about how she took a poll from other customers in the shop next door about the noise the kids made "They are too nice to say anything but I'm not!" she yelled at the kid. "I'm going to find out who I can complain too and you're in trouble blah,blah,blah." It's a good thing I wasn't there I don't believe in hitting a woman but I dislike racists especially people who think they are holier than thou. It's one thing to tell someone they are making too much noise but to get racist and threaten. "Get your saintly little butt on down the road." I had acouple run ins with the shop she came from thru the years but it's old stuff and I have pretty much let it go, I think they like me now at least to my face, lol. I like a couple of them also.

People come down here to Milpas Street to do business either they own the business, or they have business but they don't own the residents just because some of us are poor or don't have as much as they do some of them get some idea in their heads that they are our messiahs. That's just not true I prefer living on the East Side of Santa Barbara. When I first got here I lived on the West Side with all my friends, after a relationship break up I lived on the Riviera a couple years as home protection for an elderly woman. A couple years later she did not need me anymore I moved to Voluntario Street and I have loved the East Side ever since. If I had $$$ I'd live here. I would not live anywhere else in town it took a long time to get along with the neighbors but now that I have them trained lol, I'm happy with them. I love the little community I live in; we're like a cult. Pretty soon I'm going to start selling flowers on the sidewalk. Anyway I told the kid they were kinda loud but it did not bother me. Maybe they should try to not make so much noise; he said that they were not going to skateboard like that anymore. It's too bad people can't have a little fun without some people thinking there's gonna be trouble, so they gotta open their traps and make it first making up stories. Maybe what they should do is visit businesses in their own Hood instead of making trouble somewhere else. Rant over.

    Will that is all outta me for now. As far as the gang injunction goes I live on the East Side and I'm afraid of a lot of things. I really would not want to get stabbed again but there are things about the gang injunction I'm just not sold on so I cannot support it. There are many other things I'm afraid of; Cancer, I'm afraid of Cancer. Can we pass a gang injunction on Cancer? Just about anyone in their chosen field, or occupation can be a gang can we have an injunction for these people? Pro-Lifers, and Pro-Choicers injunction here too! 12-Steppers Injunction! Church goers Double injunction! Fast Food employees, Politicans, panhandlers, nose pickers, Shoplifters, The list goes on and on. Anyway Have a Lovely Monday and Dog Willing We Will See you on Wednesday. Later, Roger
