    Pet store crazy 5

    Our shipping department is in a separate building, across a breezeway.

    Next door is a massage place, super nice family.

    Last year they got their window smashed with a landscaping rock:

    A few nights ago is footage of the same camera, woman in a bathrobe, barefoot, at 10:40 PM.

    Walks by their window decals (couple getting massages) and flips off the window.

    90 seconds later she comes back, pick up a rock, and breaks the same window as last time. Wanders off.

    I know exactly who she is, local 24/7 sh*tfaced drunk.

    About 4 years ago she walked up to one of my customers in the parking lot and punched her in the face...and wandered off.

    Video shows some older bike rider raging on some kid bike rider. What was the reason? What did the kid do that got the older guy on the mountain bike raging?

    Dang Humby. That's not good. Could you ask the local law enforcement to show a bit more of a presence in the area before this escalates into worse?

    That older guy could've really hurt the younger one with those rocks...

    Yeah I'm surprised that the younger guy was so...not upset about the older guy chucking those big rocks at him.
    Curious what happened between those 2 before this video started.....

    Something must have obviously happened right before that. The kid glances back at the guy right after he starts to put his bike in the rack as if being aware something might possibly be happening. Did they get the guy? From my point of view that video is pretty damning and that older guy could be looking at some pretty hefty charges throwing those rocks at the kid..

    That security guard is worthless and should have been fired. too bad the kid didn't have the presence of mind to use his U-lock on the other guys bike. Clamp that thing on it anywhere and that guy is going nowhere.

    They caught him.

    He claimed the kid passed him on the other side of town without calling out...

    Older guy followed him across town and then, that.

    Security guard was one of the worst we've had. We filed complaints and he quit a couple weeks later.

    Glad to hear they caught him. I'm sure he probably got either a very light sentence or a ticket... but that kind of reaction is not normal. I would have thought a psychiatric evaluation would be in order. Glad to hear they got rid of the security guy too. I realize that a security guard has their limits as to what they can actually do, but you at least need to carry a bit of personal authority about you in order to keep things under control until the police arrive.

    There was a similar situation outside a store. Some strange old guy attacked people with a broomstick.

    Not this guy.

    45-ish years-old physically, mentally about 8. Maybe 6.

    Tried pointing out some of the regular shoplifters to him, from the Safeway next door, after they walked by him carrying baskets of stolen stuff.

    He had no idea what dreadlocks were even when I described them (on nasty white tweakers who steal from Safeway 3, 6, 12 times per day, seen it all) or what the address of our shopping center is.

    That's per tweaker. In a day I've watched 10+ hand baskets, bottles, carts leave the store. Out *good* security guard almost got run over when someone loaded a stolen cart of stuff into their car and reversed onto the sidewalk before trying to dodge him.

    Watched a woman, no longer allowed in our store (cat collar about 5 years ago), wheel $200 of stuff out yesterday.

    About 2-3 years ago, one of the local Supermarkets that I frequent seemed to have a little more than usual amount of homeless hanging around. I did see the store chase them out, and I also saw a couple get away through the parking lot. I don't know what the store did but there are no homeless hanging around any more. I think what happens is that the word gets out in the homeless encampments as to which places are not going to pursue you if you try and steal something. Once the hammer comes down it's just easier for them to move onto the next strip-mall.

    A friend of mine went to Venice Beach/Boardwalk two weeks ago and showed me some horrible pictures of the tent city around there, looks crazy bad.

    The thing someone mentioned recently that made me think is, "these people have no privacy."

    And it did make me think.

    Whether they're on the streets by choice (lot of that up here), or bad circumstances, or mental health or drug issues, it's got to be hard as hell.

    I can go to bed with a full stomach, four walls and a roof, hot shower and ride to work in the morning.

    The only ones who really piss me off as a whole are the by-choice ones who take it that step further asking/demanding money.

    I feel bad for the rest of them.

    One guy shows up about 6 months at a time, "Hand Talker."

    Short, fat, late fifties. Big army duffel most years.

    Yells at cinder block walls, but only certain blocks.

    Caresses and kisses the 12x12 support beams for the shopping center breezeways.

    Talks to his hands. For years, he yells at one and hits it, but sweet talks the other. Always the same hands.
