The gist is this. The cops are un-happy they put a 4 story apartment for low income / mentally ill folks next door to a cop shop.

Officer got shot at his car, from a "sniper" in that building. But no hole in the officer - took shot in vest.



Anyways back to our usual paranoia - can't happen in CA, how'd a mental health patient under treatment get a gun, etc.


Los Angeles sheriff's deputy shot by sniper from apartment building; Still on loose...

"It's not just a four-story apartment building, it's a four-story apartment building that is government subsidized for mentally ill people," the mayor said. "I mean, let's call it what it is. Why do you put mentally ill people in a four-story apartment building across from the sheriff's department?"

Might be the best possible place. Mentally ill create needs for LE, either by upsetting ordinary folk or having problems themselves. More convenient for LE to deal with if right next door and they actually know about it.

I recall once when I was walking my dogs down the railroad track in Corvallis when we came upon a guy collapsed on the gravel near the tracks. One dog ran right up and barked loudly inches from his ear, but he didn't move. I figured he was just a drunk homeless guy who had collapsed from alcohol. But drunk homeless guys can have heart attacks or strokes or diabetic crises. And he certainly didn't choose to collapse on the hard gravel in the hot sun completely exposed like that. So I walked to the nearest house and asked to use their phone, and called 911. Explained it was probably no emergency but etc.

A couple cops arrived within about 5 minutes and walked down tracks with me. As we approached collapsed guy, one said, "Oh, that's xxxx. Yeah, we take him in when this happens. We won't arrest him. But we'll take him in and let him have a bed in the jail. Feed him. Make sure he's okay, and safe at least one night. Thanks for reporting it." They went over to the guy and managed to rouse him, calling him by name. He went off with them willingly. Clearly knew and trusted them.

To save fuel, you know how many trips to this complex cops are going to have to make. Where should they have built it, next to a grade school?

Yeah! You should have them congregate on 2nd Ave or live under freeway bridges like in Seattle, or give them jobs in the Mayor's office like the voters did in Portland !!

    This shop is an extortion racket. It’s the only one in town and charges like a monopoly. He can’t fulfill commitments and he won’t provide estimates.
