Scanner Reports 6-18-14
updated: Jun 18, 2014, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Wednesday, Hump Day. Just another day in Paradise, watch your step don't want to step on a... I could not believe what I heard the other night on the Scanner. This Medic trying to get these agencies to respond to a woman making Homicidal threats; from what I could tell listening over the Scanner he would not leave her. She was refusing medical treatment but making these threats and he seemed like he was almost desperate to get her the help she needed. A dedicated Medic someone who really cares Boy! That's something that's really hard to find in this life. No sooner had I posted the information on Edhat that all transmissions concerning this situation were hushed over the company cell phones.

A business of Quacks, Phony's that don't care about the Well Being of People only their pocketbooks, their money, their life savings. "Here is a Happy Pill for you" This will make you happy! I mentioned the Medic number on the comments but I bet if he likes his job the way everyone else does he may just keep his mouth shut. Just keep your mouth shut and you'll never have to worry about being unemployed unless of course you should have a nervous breakdown then we'll give you a little pill. Isn't life Wonderful? Oh Well Just another Day in Paradise Look at all the Beautiful things we have around us The Mountains, and the Sea, the Wildlife fruits and trees, the Birds and the Bees, just watch your step don't want to step on a Turd. Thy Holy Business of Psychology is giving Ducks a bad name in Santa Barbara County, Quack! Quack! Quack! Not all Head Shrinkers are bad, just the ones that care more about money than their patients. Ironic word there "Care".

I saw a gal here in Santa Barbara many years ago, her name was Sara, she was dedicated to her work and not a Quack, like many others who act like they Care. But she's gone now, lives somewhere else. Still a good friend of mine though. Good people do exist few and far between. Everyone sticks together to protect their own it's pretty much always been that way. Keep your mouth shut don't want to make waves where has all of that got us? Look at our World today, our Country, ourselves, a lot of good all that did for our environment. Maybe us Crazy people ought to stick together, form a union like everyone else. Of course most of us don't keep our mouths shut. We open them far and wide and scream of injustices we observe and society calls us crazy. I guess that's easier than working to help someone get well just pop a little pill in their mouths and shove them in a corner. Some require Strait Jackets, the Elderly Poseys, some restraints until the lobotomy pill takes effect. Then everyone's happy again for a while, smiling.

Of course not everyone gets well. We can't always tell what's on the inside of someone's thoughts until it's too late. If no one wants that to happen anymore maybe when someone is saying that they are Homicidal or Suicidal they should be taken seriously instead of given a pill and shoved in a corner. If you're going to run a business that helps mentally ill people you should be there for them when they need you not just expect them to need you between 9-5 Bankers hours.

That's my Rant and here's Thy Holy Scanner Roni Reports, Monday:

    Anyway that's enough out of me for now. I found a great Veterinarian for Pooh Bear on Edhat. He loves them and they love him. I could not be happier. They are called The Cat Doctors and are at 1333 De La Vina. Recently the business was sold but both of the original Cat Doctors are going to still work there. They are Dr. Leslie Siemon and Dr. Janice Garrett, and are being joined by the new owner, Dr. Gina Sullos. On June the 28th of this month they are going to have an Open House from 2 to 5PM, Where people can get a behind the scenes tour of the hospital. There will be snacks and beverages and an opportunity to win some raffle prizes. Go check them out and if you're looking for a veterinarian for your kitty, these Gals are the best. Have a great Wednesday, Hump Day and Dog willing we will see you on FRYday. Later, Roger
