Scanner Reports 7-4-14
updated: Jul 04, 2014, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

It's FRYday the 4th of July. Hot damn, this year is going fast! I love fireworks always have but they are dangerous especially here, fires start so quickly. The last time I had fireworks about 10 plus years ago now I had a neighbor that had a dog. We thought he was gone for the Holiday but he wasn't. I set off a bottle rocket and the Guy attacked me from behind all he had to do was say something. Anyway he said if he heard anymore fireworks he was going to kill me since everyone was lighting them I figured I might be seeing the Lord that night, one of them. I stopped lighting my bottle rockets but people were doing it all over town and the neighbor went kinda nuts. I had to call the LAW. I was honest about the whole thing and told them I was the one lighting the fireworks that started it all but the explanation the neighbor gave to physically attacking me was downright whacked. He said that since I am so big I deserved to be attacked. After the police left I had some temporary thoughts of a sinful nature involving much more potent fireworks but decided not to do what I was thanking.

One minute you could be having a good time setting off fireworks the next you could be getting threatened, and attacked just because someone sees Magilla Gorilla as a threat. I'm just going to be hanging out at home we can see the fireworks from Milpas it's easier and I'm lazy. I used to get closer to the whole thing but once over it would take hours to get home and I'm just not a going out type of guy. Perhaps if I had a vehicle but then again most likely not. Besides my cat might get scared and I gotta man the Scanner Roni. I bought all kinds of good food to eat; a Tri Tip for the neighbors to cook it will be a nice day. I hope drunk and DUI drivers stay off the road.

  • There was a report of a lewd subject masturbating in a stairwell in a parking structure in the 1100 Block of Anacapa. When I was a security guard I caught a couple guys doing that red handed they got this look on their faces like a deer caught in the head lights.
  • Heard a copper say something about 2 doors with broken glass..Did not hear the whole call but I've been hearing about Burglaries lately. Maybe everyone should go back to watching their HOODS because it seems like the opportunists are making another sweep thru town, maybe they never stopped.
  • Oh there's one more here Report of a 5150 Female hitting herself on Yankee Farm Road. I thought I heard a chuckle and I'd like to know what someone finds funny about people that hit themselves. A lot of people who were abused as children do that. They continue the abuse. I did it for years, I cut myself too. I did a lot of self-destructive scrap that idiots find amusing because maybe they themselves are abusive maybe that is why they find it funny. Laughing at the mentally ill is not going to help anything it will make matters only worse. As not just the bullied, but the bullies themselves suffer mental illness. Just when you thought you were normal.

    Anyway Have a Wonderful 4th of July and four day Weekend, and Doggie Willing, we'll see you on Monday. Later, Roger
