Living in this area here, well I guess it goes under “one of life’s experiences”. It sure was not in anyones plans to live in the noise jungle. Constant booming of bass resonates a diverse genre of what loosely for lack of a better term passes as music. The neighbor has now replayed the same song eight times in a row. I think it is an old 70’s disco ish tune. The bass goes boom dee dee boom, boom dee dee boom, boom dee dee boom . … I have visions of a 40ish short pudgy black male dancing with a fake mic in a silk robe – dunno why the mind plays tricks.
The sirens are running up the main drag and making a left turn onto the secondary road that ours branches off of. Whoop whoop . .. silence they have converged and more than likely surrounded their intended prey. Five young girls are doing the Blood dan ce outside behind the carport. I gotta get night goggles so I can see what they are spelling out.
We have now gone about ten days without someone being shot within 50 feet of our front door. Woo hoo. Although a young male was shot dead last weekend a block away in a fanny mae home that was the location for a break in and subsequent party. I can only assume that the young hoodlums had an enjoyable killing fest. I wonder what do they do or say – hey by the way the party favor is a bullet into your body?
You see we are the minority here now. With the foreclosures, units being purchased for the sole purpose of renting them out to drug dealing, gun toting, gang bangers. The ten or so units that are still occupied by what I will refer too as “normal” people- meaning those who work for their toys, paid the mortgages, an had hoped to move up and out prior to the influx of “whale poop people” trashing the neighborhood and spreading their terror. Well crap someone just shot off a gun emm lets see a football field away – augh …
Any of you that read this and think oh well it wont, cant etc happen to us/me because (fill in your thoughts) I beg to differ. All it takes is a mass movement of freaking gang members to decide that your area, your neighborhood, your street, your block, is now part of their territory, once they have claimed it, it is theirs. All the pamphlets, all the neighborhood watch stuff, all the community POP officers, all the namby pamby save the children, help the poor down trodden molly coddling programs in the world DO NOT WORK – get that right now THEY DO NOT WORK! Why? Because, if your “normal” you more than likely have a desire to live – to avoid bullets and speeding autos. If your normal, maybe you believe it is against your spiritual dogma or karma or God’s will for you to shoot back or be violent. The cops and agency personnel decide that you must be a druggy or a drunk or a bum – why else would you buy a home there in that awful place. Never does it occur to them that it was a great neighborhood once, and when citizens started asking for help they were told they were racist, over reacting, that there was only one cop to cover a large large area and oh you should be so thankful that you have 6 now.
Ok, well like the area populations has grown exponentially with bay area migrants seeking cheaper real estate. Elk Grove is one of the fasted growing cities in the country – it was the fasted might still be. Anyways the edge of Sacramento City that butts up to it is where we are at. and once Elk Grove got their own PD this southern sac area was left high and dry. Those who had the money got out, those who, like us could not swing 1500-2000 bucks a month for another 30 years got stuck – who wants to sell a place for less than they paid for it 27 years ago? and then go pay someone else over 2000 bucks to rent a house? Ok I should get rid of my dogs and lots of stuff and rent an apartment for lets say 1500 so I can be in a less crime ridden area. …
Well it was a great nice and quite place until the law said they had to build low income house projects where a nice pig farm used to be -and upped the number of group offender homes allowed, ignored the issue when one block had more offender homes that were allowed for the the whole area . … yeah go figure. And just to finish the deal off lets start paroling peeps and setting them up in the apartments in the area too. Ever wonder when the city took over Franklin Villa, bought it out, cleaned it up (NOT) with tax dollars – ever wonder where all the displaced gangster’s went? Wonder no more.
First off, I would so dearly like to pass on my appreciation to all the a holes that have shot each other in front of my home in the last few weeks – like six in a month – now come on whatz up with that? When did it become “in” to say man dont shot me and then go wow man you shot me – whoa? I know that it would be silly to ask if it ever occured to any of you stupid dumb asses that your bullets stray from intended targets and hit other stuff and folks that just maybe really don’t think it is cool to get shot – cause I know – yeap I know – that you see no point in life – in living – in your teens you have given the heck up and do not care. Will la tee dah – I care – I would so prefer it if you would point your weapons in a different direction – like away from my walls -DUH
Unfortunately, there are those of us who can not just move. We own our places – yep we don’t “sign the papers” to pay the man – nope we worked hard and paid for our homes – now dumps thanks to you all. Novel idea eh? What I get is that you are terrorists – you get your power via FEAR tactics -well another woop tee doo to you – it worked a few years ago but now we watch – we see – we smell the gun powder and it quite frankly pisses us the F off!
The truth is even if we wanted to ( and believe me we do ) move we can not afford too.
Next I would like to congratulate the turds who stole my tire, wheel and lug nuts – why the lug nuts anyways? so that when someone needed to get to work to pay the air conditioning bill got up to find the vehicle only had three wheels. Wow, now here is the fun part – you were so stupid that you put my freaking tire on your car and then had the nerve to get upset when I noticed! Surprise! I know how to call the PD I learned that in like kindergarten. Back when I had to memorize my parents names, address and phone number . … I guess that one was new to you all – I admit when the police did show up – the look on your face was – as the Visa ads say “priceless”. Now instead of being out 110 bucks for a tire, another 110 so the the rt and left sides match, 104 bucks for a rim and 6.18×5 for the lugs nuts – I am just out getting the tire rebalanced, lugs nuts, the tow truck, the person who needed the car to get to work lost wages and getting dinged for not getting there on time, the gas paid to return home to show the cars three other tires to the police, don’t ask me on that one cause I had the dang receipt etc – and a broken 90 hub cap.
The not so priceless thing about this is you live less than a football field away from me.
You are lower than whale poop – come on stealing off a car that has handicapped plates, from middle aged women? Wow you are tough -woo hoo.
