Crime in Atherton. Grab some tissues… You are in for a bumpy ride!

 

If you happen to live in Atherton Ca. which happens to be the states 4th most expensive zip code (median home price is 4.9 million!), then it is no huge surprise that you have even less than first world problems.  You have maybe half world problems.  And when there is a problem… Who do you call?  The police of course.  Boy if i were a Santa Clara county deputy i really would love to be assigned this beat!  But only if i still had my patience and a serious sense of humor!

This was just too funny to pass up sharing with you all.  I have lived in the Bay area my whole life, growing up deep in the Santa Cruz mountains.  My dad’s business was over the hill and so we had friends over there.  I have always been familiar with Atherton.  I think my parents had friends that lived there (keeping in mind that this was in the 70’s & 80’s when it was really rich but the whole bay was much less populated than it is now).

In fact, life was much less complicated than it is now.  And much more connected.  Now days, fear is fed to us along with the ideals that beauty rules along with sex (however, it can not be talked about) and consumerism.

I dont think that in the days i was a kid that people living in Atherton were this incapable and terrified of… well… Anything that they might happen to come across.  I suppose that is reserved for our curent generations of frightened stiff un-functioned twits living in their walled manses afraid of the world and clearly delusionally entitled.

I would not like to see these people cope in a natural disaster where you are forced to rely on your friends and neighbors.  If this was survival of the fittest, these people would NOT survive.

It is funny but also just kinda sad, dont cha think?

Christopher Dorner Manhunt… Something seems fishy….

Christopher Dormer Manhunt... Something seems fishy....I dont know where i have been for the last couple days with news beyond San Francisco so, it is just today that i go onto ABC’s news site and started reading about this Dorner guy.

If you are as in the dark as i was, i am talking about former LAPD Officer Christopher Dorner.

Dorner went on what they are calling a rampage killing in total 3 people (with 2 being the daughter & fiance of Police Captain as well as shooting at 3 other cops, 1 of which died), however, only tying up an old man whom he stole a car from.  He had written a manifesto (you can read it here… http://gawker.com/5982438), which connected him to the slain victims.

HOWEVER If my sniffer is correct… which it many many times is, there is just something that is not right about this whole situation. Continue reading

Do people have a right to call 911 for a noise complaint during the Super Bowl?

While watching the game this year, i decided it might be interesting to turn on the SF Police scanner and listen to how much mayhem is afoot.

Police motorcycles line up at the 2006 war pro...

It is not yet to the half and things are pretty tame and i would say on the quiet side.  What has been catching my attention is how many code 415 calls there have been.  Code 415 is a noise complaint.

A noise complaint??  SERIOUSLY??  So, you mean that jack hammers, saws, large machinery and all kinds of other daytime sounds are equally as loud if not louder, and there is not big code 415s then.  Do people have a right to call 911 at 4:30 in the afternoon on a sunday when their team happens to be playing at that very moment in the super bowl?

This whole town has the feeling of it being a holiday.  Just as it did during the Giants run to the World series champions.  NO ONE in San Francisco on this Sunday, could possibly NOT know that the Superbowl is on OR that we are IN IT!!

To me, it seems like an extreme waste of resources on a day where there are going to need all that there is.

What do you think?  Am i a biased Super Bowl fan or an insensitive loud ass chick in general, or does this seem ridiculous to you as well.  I would be curious to hear your thoughts.

P.s.  I also actually heard a call due to a dog barking!  A DOG BARKING??  Are we living in a world that thinks that life is silent or should be?  Now i like my peace and quiet too, but daytime is free game.  If all of those builders etc can jack hammer next to my house for 5 hours straight starting at 7:00 am, cant a dog bark for a few minutes on a sunday afternoon?
