Contesting A Citation in Morro Bay

Still building this page

April 29, 2008:
      Last night, or I should say early this morning, I ran into what people on the street say is the Morro Bay's police department's bad seed. Hell, just as I've said before - if it wasn't for all the good cops out there - the bad ones would get out of hand.
      In my situation, I just did what the character House might have done. I played the guy and he sure showed his true colors to his fellow officers. I was threatened to be thrown in jail, and admitted to a mental hospital and almost sprayed with pepper spray.
  Boy, this bully with a badge, comes prepared. Martin wares one of those oversized bullet proof vest that swat teams ware. Gee, in laid back Morro Bay. I'd say he's looking for trouble, but that's just only my opinion.      
      Good thing they had officer Kelly keeping him grounded and they don't have him running around the streets alone because that guy smells like trouble to me.
    Lets just hope the city of Morro Bay doesn't learn that hard way like Half Moon Bay did.
    Oh well, at least even the kids in HMB will tell you that all their cops are good ones now.
    I was going to splurge and buy two new badly needed injectors for my truck, but we can kiss them good-by because this bully just robbed me.
    Apparently officer Bargantzel was clueless as to my truck and who I am. He couldn't figure out why I would have to live like I do; with patents and all. However, he'll stand by his comrade's side and back him up and let him rob me. Then wonder why with patents and all.

      Sorry to keep you folks hanging, but some cops thought they could all of a sudden dictate how I'd spend my spare time. Early in the morning of April 30th, the Morro Bay cops from the night before, (along with another one how wouldn't give me his name, but I'll find out,) came along ordering me around.
       Even though I was fully clothed and still had my computer on, (actually shutting down,) they wouldn't even look inside to see. However they wrote me up a ticket for another $96.00 for sleeping/camping as the night before.

(Check it out: Lara Kelly didn't sign it & date it.)

Both nights I was working on my web-sites. The first night I was outside a internet/coffee shop and the second night I was outside the public library as I've worked many times before. Now why they decided to harass me after doing the same thing for almost ten months, I don't know why. (But yes I do, I just can't prove it.) But if you know the Morro bay area, you know that there isn't any coffee shops open all night. So you can go to the .info sites and try to have your browser show the page properties and you may find that much of my web-sites have been uploaded at all hours of the late night and early morning. See for your self.
      The punch line here is that the citation number are consecutive and I happen to have files on my server that can prove I wasn't sleeping or camping at the time of the citation. I even have new image files on my computer that were downloaded from a myspace web-site just a minute or two before they knocked on my door.
   Update: I found out when I went to get the paper work to contest these charges, that I won't even be able to plead my case before a judge. It will be investigated by the police department. Well my question is: who is going to investigate the police department. It's like the police department gets to police themselves.
  And another thing I found out. Every time the police department writes you up on the same violation as you've already had before, (within one year,) the amount goes up 100%, or should I say doubles.
      Nice law making these folks got going on here.

     Therefore, I had to learn how to save my web-site on the server and the use of the new domains is how I chose to do it. However I did learn that I could have saved myself some money by using sub-domains, but I'm still new at this so....
   Now I'm going to have to shut down my other web-sites Iwishyouluck and BooksbySunnyside, temporarily to do the same thing as this one. Now Synchro-link is going to be difficult, because I'm going to have to rebuild the whole site by changing all the web-page names and all the links to match. Good thing I didn't use mystupidrules and the primary host site, because 38 pages will be a lot easier than over 150. But what a bitch anyway.
    Soon to be added to the documents pages will be the images of the citations the Morro Bay Police departments want me to pay. I'd say its money well spent considering what a lawyer could get in return.
Stupid Rule Number 8

It kinna sucks, that I've got to be doing all this work, but I have to do it, because I have a bunch more material add.

      Sorry about the lack of work I've been able to up-load lately. I've been working hard just to be able to afford an oil change and a few new injectors, but unfortunately the City of Morro bay has decided that they need the money more than I do. Can you believe that I got the biggest run around trying to contest the two citations their bullies gave me.
    I went back and fort, to and foe. The rules change as we go. In order to speak to a judge on the matter, the city attorney informed me that he would have to issue a criminal warrant on the parking citation and march me down to the court house which would probably take all day. (Then I'd have to wonder if I got a crooked judge, because I could end up with a criminal record because of it.) Hell to keep it short, I'm still not done with the run around.

Another thing happened on my birthday that I feel is worth mentioning. My old best friend that I haven't talked to in over eight years sent me a message on MySpace. He was upset, and wondered why he wasn't worthy of being named in my lousy book. Hell, looks like the guy has some idea that I would want to pay him some money someday. Yeah, I figured people will come out of the woodwork the day my book starts making money.  Funny thing is, he doesn't know what his mother in-law said one day. Worthyness flew right out the window you could say.
    I happen to think, he needs someone else to argue with and not me. I miss the friendship, but not him.
     Update: the word on the street today was 'whiner." I guess he wants me to make him famous or something. I'd say he should have thought about that a long time ago. I'll have to post his message because if you have read my book; you'd think he was the one who is delusional.

      Boy last week I was about to buy a police scaner, just to hear what the local cops were saying. I sure as hell didn't want to waste my money on one but I knew the rumors would weaken if I did. However, I began telling people about the game that went down in Santa Cruz and the supect that it was going on here in Morro Bay. However someone must have told the right person because already a week later, the rumors on the street change to "they burned his house down." I even heard a guy in the hardware store tell a clerk, "I would have smashed it up too." The I walk out and a couple of guys stood waiting for me to leave so that they could get a look at the back of my truck.
    I guy they see something other than just a disturbed guy driving a beat up truck. They are a little more open minded and they are finally looking at the big picture. Gee, it took damn near a year to leave all that crap behind. I was thinking of leaving this place behind because of the rumor mill that it is. But now that I have made it this far, which is a milestone in my thoughts, I'd hate to go elseware and start all over.
     What ever happen and who ever did what, thanks a lot  big time.

   Oh tonight I had another cop stop by while I was logged on at the library. He didn't write me any citation, but hell why don't they learn who to knock instead of pound the hell out of my door. If I hadn't heard his police radio, I would have had to fear of what kind of rowdy person I had out side. He was an older cop, with a young rooky, but I happen to think he could at least be polite. Guess he was teaching the young one how they serve and protect.
     What gets me is these bully cops think that they can scare me. Well, if you've read my book, you wouldn't know that I've experience pretty much everything I can expect out of these creeps. It would be pretty hard to top  what I've already gone through.
     However if any of those bullies out there want to try to top them, I'm sure the law allows them to do so, but I'll be sure to make them famous for their talents.      
       Ah it's 1:45 am, I better get out of here before he comes back and beats me up or something. But hey, maybe that would be a good thing so that it may just keep him from the urge of going home and beating his wife and kids.
    Bullies, can't stand them.

June 14, 2008:
      Gee would you ever think that if it wasn't for bullie cops, my life would be pretty boring.

June 17, 2008:
      Yesterday while I was putting groceries away in my cage while parked at the local shopping center, I overheard a conversation of two guys walking by. One said, "I thought he was a child molester"
      The other one said, "That's what the cops where saying, but he's not."
      Well, guess the cops were two facing me.
Rule No. 85. Yeah serve and protect my ass....

June 28, 2008:
      I can only guess Affirmative Action is in town, because I don't know of anyone around here that would put any time into such a thing. But oh, I'm scared.

July 5, 2008:
      As I've been waiting for the word on when this hearing with Morro Bay is going to happen, I've been realizing that there just isn't much chance of winning such a thing. See the deal is: the city is going to hire a retired ex-cop or judge to act as a arbitrator. As I see it, being an ex-cop, he's bound to side with the cops just as the ex-judge. Because it's all about money and the ex-judge or cop would naturally want to be hired again, so they are going to side with the city just to stay on the good side of the city. If they don't the city is out the money that they have to pay the arbitrator. And that arbitrator will probably cost the city almost as much as the revenue from the citations. So naturally the arbitrator isn't going to put the city in the hole.
    Now the question I have is what goes on when I contest the arbitrator, and it goes to another hearing. Does it go to a county court or do they hire another arbitrator? For sure the city will be in the hole even if I loose the second time around.

And oh boy, what a screwed up situation that have here on the 4 th. I'd say the bureaucracy of the fire and police departments sure made a mess out of the 4th of July celebrations. It was a sure sign of stupidity.

July 6, 2008:
      Kinna funny: last night I began work on my new web-page titled Bullies with a badge, and even though I didn't up load it. I got a visit from officers of the law. They came this time knocking on my door while I was practicing my bass at the local Albertson's parking lot.
      It was about 12:30 am and they said that they had a noise complaint. I find that kinna hard to believe, because just as I told the cop, "who is going to complain? There is nobody around and I've done this several times."
     I asked him who complained? But he said that they don't tell them, but it only takes one.  I happen to think he was just driving by and heard it.
    However, it did actually happen, don't you think I should make the BAY NEWS paper this time?
     He told me that there wasn't any camping allowed in Morro Bay. But the funny part of it was that I purposely parked near a motor home (Just as the kind that usually pull up where I camp out and start their generator.) However, the motor home just moved farther out in the parking lot and was still there this morning with its slid-out extended.
    I'd say the cops around here only see what they want to see. I've got pictures of two that moved in on my old turf that I'd been for 75% of 10 months.  Kinna sucks when I was where everyone could check up on me, and now I camp where it's not safe at all. Yeah serve and protect, my ass.
 Gee, since the end of April, practically all my journal entries are about being harassed by cops. Kinna the reason I wanted to get political asylum. Today, I just sat here on the web, looking at the places I used to surf in Australia. It made me home sick.
   Oh yeah, had another moron of the day this morning. Yippee.

July 9, 2008:
      The best day I had in quite awhile. Started out with a cop giving me a strong thumbs up. Which means not all the cops in Morro Bay are bad.
    Then I ended up with the jetty all to myself for over 3 hours in chest high waves with my quad.
      My quad is such a kick in the ass to ride in the smaller waves because it just shreds the hell out of them.

August 1, 2008:
      It looks as though it's going to be pretty hard for a cop to try to run me out of town any more. I finally got my truck registered in California. (I had to quit a good job in Santa Cruz because of it.) It seemed like every time I got established somewhere, they would run me out of town. (Kinna like Kelly and Martin, in MB.)
      And I've got some exciting news. It looks as though I will be putting together my third Caddy Trunk within the weeks ahead. It's because of a little something I got back. That is a garage. A place where I can put in shelving and have the place organized. (much better than a storage unit.) So I'll have someplace where I can stash an extra bed.

August 4, 2008:
      I dropped by the Morro Bay's  City Attorney’s office today to find out when I'd get my money back. Gee, can you believe that it's been 3 months already? He said that there would be a hearing sometime in the fall. Gee, I wonder if they will pay interest on the money?
            I said, but I need my money now.
            So he said he's set up a hearing just for me.
  I guess some one in the city doesn't like the postings I've be putting on Cragslist, because they have been getting flagged as fast as I can post them. However, they sure do get a far amount of the visitors going to my journal page, which has gotten to be one of the most viewed pages now days.
      I guess there is a lesson learned here. That if your city is in a financial crisis, don't go after the homeless for revenue. Because to the homeless, a hundred bucks is a hundred bucks and they will fight for it. Also, you better have level headed cops in your town or they will cost you more than they are worth.
