Second Quarter: Sierra High School Trails Druggies (Ge'cher Hot Dogs!)


"Narcs at the door again, Yellow!"

At 09:42 hours, I got this email from the City of Manteca's online Government Outreach system, also know as the "Put That In Your Pipe and Smoke It, Whiner!" system.

This is in reference to the Complaint on Drugs/Narcotics you submitted on 09/20/2010 2:42 PM
Description: Ref: Case # 10-24475. The "two week" deadline expired last week, and no preparations to enclose the marijuana have been made, let alone completing the job. The plants are still growing outdoors next to Sierra High School.

Your request # 463673 has been resolved with the resolution:
Thank you.

We are committed to providing you the best service we can. We would appreciate you filling out an online survey on how this request was handled. You can fill out the online survey by going to: {... Hell!}

What a loquatious* response! {sarcasm}

I'm really not surprised. Neither should Manteca's leaders be surprised when I take such an abrupt** answer as a sign of dismissal and again take my case back through the Manteca Unified School District. I know, the city will pitch me several excuses, such as not disclosing details of an active case or protecting the accused's "rights". A curt "thank you" does not produce within me any level of reassurance or trust that the laws of this city are being enforced properly - or at all.

"Hot Dog(s)! Here We Go Again, Yellow!"

At 12:45 hours, I arrived home to a tableau on the neighboring driveway. Artfully arranged were: an Animal Control vehicle, a uniformed woman, a man with a ponytail, Lynda Allen with her favorite dog chew toy baseball cap, and Lynda's car parked over the sidewalk. They appeared to be conversing. A few minutes later the Animal Control vehicle drove away.

Oh, boy! Oh, boy! I can't wait to hear what fabrication the doper dreamt up to deploy this time. We'll see if Animal Control is more garrulous* than the Manteca Police Drug Squad in responding to online complaints.
