Scanner Reports 7-25-14
updated: Jul 25, 2014, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Thank Dog it's FRYday. These shingles are horrible but the more I think about it the more I think I deserve it after all I'm evil. If you don't think so there's proof on Edhat with some of the negative comments about ROGER DODGER. Take responsibility for your own feelings and don't blame others or am I controlling some of you? I've always wanted a pet drone. Someone called in a report of a man driving around in a green Chevy Impala 2 ten year old girls were seen climbing from the back seat to the front it sounded suspicious. I always post Animals at risk, Children at risk, some Adults at risk calls, as well as Fire calls; just my personal policy. I guess there is only one green Chevy Impala in Santa Barbara because I reported what I heard about the car and the girls climbing into the front seat and it went from a suspicious call to me being called a racist. Whatever. I'm not a racist but I must be; there it is in print so it must be true, it's not going to stop me from reporting suspicious calls involving children. The reason why I wanted to put a stop to the thread is because sometimes people with an AX to grind about others call in phony calls to 911 and maybe that is what occurred here. Usually the calls involve the Homeless, people don't like them loitering around town or panhandling so they will call in something phony, usually they leave no contact information or place the call from a cell phone. When the dispatcher calls them back they don't answer. People talk about how some people waste our resources, and the time of our responders but I don't think I have seen any complaints anywhere about these phony phone calls involving the Homeless. I could usually tell the way the call sounds going out over the scanner whether or not it's B.S. but like I wrote before, the call involved children so I posted it.

A dozen years ago when I lost a former girlfriend I loved there were a lot of weird thoughts and feelings going thru my mind on how she might have died. She used to call me on the phone usually in the evening and tell me about abusive boyfriends. I was always telling her to break off with these guys but she was partying and dug the Wild Life. I really went off the deep end after she died. I was thinking of doing some pay backs; I thought someone might have killed her and I was going to make them pay. So I slithered around asking questions of some of her friends. I imagine I probably scared the hell out of some of them. It came down to the fact that she loved to party and as a result of taking a lot of pills, she suffered a medical emergency and passed away. That was no one else's fault. She chose to hang out with those punks because they were "Bad Boys". A lot of women enjoy the company of "Bad Boys". You could lead a Horse to water but you can't make them drink it. It was horrible what happened to her but she wasn't murdered. Her lifestyle might have played a part in her death but she chose to live the way she wanted to no one for me to blame. I had to let it go. I did after a long time. I did not beat the hell outta anyone or make them pay for what I thought they did, I just thought about it. I never made the information public or ruined any reputations. Nowadays, that's what people do, it seems. Get a little resentment towards someone and put it all over the internet with false accusations. Anyway if you feel like I've wronged you in anyway and you want to pay me back why not send me a gift card from a fast food restaurant. The Hamburger Habit has food cards. Just a suggestion.

    Will that's it outta me for now. Been so hot the past couple of days Wednesday Evening I went out to the end of the driveway just to cool off a little. I was observing traffic go by when I saw a young man possibly in his 20's fly by on a mountain bike. I used to have one of those; a blue 18 speed Peugeot. I paid $425 for it from Hazards almost 30 years ago. I kept breaking the frame. They replaced it once then got it welded after that. I loved riding that bicycle; it was so fast and at night when there was hardly any traffic I'd fly on down the road just like the young man I observed flying down South Milpas Wednesday Evening. Cool wind in my hair I really miss those days now I can hardly move. Oh Well Have a Great Weekend and Doggie Willing We Will see you on Monday. Later, Roger
