of Morro Bay

This letter is just a copulation of things that have happened with the law enforcement officers around the area. There was a day when I spent $25.00 to get help from an attorney, but I was the last guy he wanted to talk to in the first place.
          Never the less he wasn't interested in reading any part of this copulation of notes. 

May 5, 2008:
      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.

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 numbers 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.

June 7, 2008:

   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 tallents.      
       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.

It makes me realize that I wasn't so crazy trying to get political asylum in Australia.

      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 lose 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: not important
      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 practising 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.

about mid August, 2008: I got a visit from two rooky cops while I was working on my web-site in the library at about 10 or 11pm. They were probubly just nosey and wanted to take a look inside my cage. However, they told me about the no camping bit and get this. They wanted me to leave my door open so they could tell that I wasn't sleeping.
      I had them wound up so much, I laughed when one said the F word.
     I asked, I asked what if someone tries to rob me? He said call 911. Yeah, I firemen in a firetruck do that for me in Australia. Then they drove off and left me waitng alone for the police to show up. The street gang just walked around the building and came after me with pipes.
(Yeah how safe is that? Serve and protect my ass.)

September 19th, 08:  Last night on Sept. 18th Just about midnight, I recognize a extremely loud pounding on my door. I was the same violent pounding as I experienced on June 7th.
  However this time I made sure to get his name. Sergeant R. Catlett is his name and lying is his game.      He had a backup of course; I figure it was for the possibility that Catlett would get me to assault him and then they could beat the crap out of me together.
     Catlett opened up the conversation by lying about not ever seeing me before. This time he made up some new rules. He said that the parking lot was closed when the library is closed. And if I didn't leave, he would arrest me for trespassing.
  Gee, if the city is hurting for money, they should clean up on Mondays because every Monday the library is close and the parking lot usually has at least a dozen cars parked there. And another time to clean up and fill those beds at the county jail would be Saturday nights when the AA meetings go on in the hall next door. I would like to see Catlett arrest some of the old ladies who frequent the place almost every night too.

But no - this is all about harassment, making up rules and giving orders as they please. It's something taxpayers have to do - that is giving the bullies like Catlett a badge so they don't go home and take it out on their wives.

As soon as I grabbed a note pad and asked Catlett to spell out his name for me, he refused retreated to his SUV be for I could get it. (It's hard to red small black lettering on a shiny name tag in the dark and isn't that against the law when cops won't give you their name?

Catlett high-tailed it out of there, but I managed to get the numbers of the back of their vehicles. And I would say I kinna owe his back up, (as I know now as officer Cantu,) an apology for the things I said in the heat of the moment. I happen to think the Cantu is just another innocent backup who otherwise would have left me alone.

Anyway, I just drove down to the police station and grabbed the red phone that is placed outside. I just asked for the names of the officers who were driving squad cars 805 and 803. All I managed to get was the correct spelling for Catlett before two cop cars pulled up to the curb and Catlett came rushing out the front door.

To my surprise the one who I didn't get the name of on April 30th pulled up in a squad car but again he refused to give it to me or even get a look at it for that matter. And Catlett was there to make sure I wouldn't get close enough to get it from him.

Catlett was all over me and said that if I didn't leave, he would arrest me. I asked, "Arrest me for what?" He said, For obstructing police business." I said, "What police business?" Isn't there anything else for so many of you to do besides harass people? You guys need to get a life."
      Catlett said, "If you don't get into your truck right now, I will arrest you."
      "Yeah - right," I said.
      As I approached the driver's side of my truck, I looked my shoulder to discover Catlett had pulled out his handcuffs and was charging after me as I approached the door of my truck.
       I said, "God - I'm leaving - just leave me alone!"
      As I sat on my seat, I said, "Creep, -where do they get these guys?" I had to laugh. The whole bit was the most fun I've had in a long time.


September 19th, 08:   Today I got the notice of the hearing on the 20th of October. The funny thing is, I had managed to get the names of three for the four cops involved: Bargantzel, Martin and Kelly. But this notice listed Martin, Kelly and two others I'm not aware of. What I'm trying to say is that at least one of them wasn't even there and the forth wouldn't give me his name.

September 20th, 08:  I Today I took a stroll down to the margarita festival to check out the bands. The first trip I was a bit early and people were still setting up their stands. However, to my surprises my buddies from the other night were there. I thought: What a deal I can get a clear look at their name tag and badges in the day light. Why don't I stroll over there a pay them a visit. It was quite clear the Catlett's back up didn't want me to see his identification, because when I stood right next to him, he turned so that I couldn't see it. It was clear to me as they stepped away from the booth that they were on to me. I knew I would probably catch hell from Catlett, but that was part of the fun so I went over to them for a better look. I didn't have to try very hard because Catlett #2 badge grabbed me by my shirt. He said, "I'm telling you only once mister Sattler. You fallow us around any more - I will put you in jail!"
     I said, I'm not fallowing you, I just wanted to get both your names. #2 and 3 I see."
    "If you don't leave right now I will throw you in jail."
    "I've been there before."
    He jerked me, turning away from him, But it was the wrong way. So I said, "But my truck is that way." However I didn't care I walked the wrong way anyway because I had enough of his bulling around for the day.

September 24 th, 08:  Not important I got out of Morro Bay for the day, that was nice. Gee, last night I had to wonder if I was being stalked by Catlett # 2 of the Morro Police department.
    Folks, I do want to make one thing clear. Although Morro Bay has a reputation for having nasty cops, not all of them are bad.
    When I first moved here a year age, I wasn't in town more than fifteen minutes and was pulled over on the Embarcadaro. And the officer had pulled me over just to check me out. Well I can't blame any cop for doing so, because the vehicle I drive doesn't look like the normal rig you se driving through town. I'm pretty sure the officer's name was Hannable. He said he just wanted to find out if I was a good guy and asked me why I couldn't just go with the flow. I told him, I going anyway I can get it. He said that he just wanted to check me out and I said that all he had to do was check out my web-site and that it was an open book to who I am and all about me.
   After running a check on me, we had a few words. I told him about the fire, my truck and all the police reports and court documents that were available on this web-site. He seemed to be a level headed gentleman and listened without jumping to his own conclusions.
   Since then we see each other around and I always get a friendly wave from him time to time. However from what I've learned, that Hannable is simi retired and used to work the beat in Fontana? Fontain? Anyway from what I gather -gang city, LA. Can you imagine; Morro Bay must be like a holiday picnic for the guy who seems to be quite the legend. Every one who has spoken about Hannable, (well except for one,) has had nothing but good things to say about the guy.
    A guy the other night expressed that Hannable doesn't just get drunk drivers of the road, he's know for keeping them for even driving in the first place.
    This guy said Hannable saw him walking towards his car when he was drunk and said, "You can either give me your keys, or go to jail." Hell, Hannable won over that guy's public opinion of him.
    I heard another story about a guy who Hannable did have to take to jail. I won't disclose any information about the arrest, but you can bet the guy would never hold it against Hannable and at the same time would have nothing but good to say about the guy.
    Oh, that one who bad mouthed Hannable. Well, that's where me and Hannable have something in common. The idiot who has never owned a car, bad mouthed and lied about me too. Can you imagine that such an idiot has a employer who will keep him around serving the public.
     I tell you what, that last thing I'd want is an employee who works customer service, telling lies about people. That's called slander and in the court of law, it would be a liable suit. Now the question one might want to know is -who would be responsible?
    Get this, the idiot had his boss kick my out of his place of business. And then made sure everyone in town knew about it.
         The guy played the smart guy card on me, but said I was too passionate. He took my phone number and said that he'd check out my web-site and call me to let me know if I was welcome back in his place of business. I guess he didn't like my web-site, but I doubt that his visitors have more than quaddrupled since then; as my web-site has. Where does the guy think he is? Hollywood?  

September 28 th, 08:  Not important  I Last night while I was parked at the library and there was an AA meeting going on; I heard a conversation outside my door that sounded like the possibility of a cop, talking on the phone about me. So I opened the door to find a man smoking a ciggy butt waring a blue shirt having a fireman's logo on it. I ducted back inside but I couldn't help but hear parts of his conversation. It sounded like he was talking to the police department and insisting that I must be in some kind of violation.
   I had already done all the work I wanted to get done, but I couldn't help but anticipate some cop arriving at my door to answer the complaint. However I decided to avoid the whole ordeal and spare the cops and I of the awkward situation; and I split. But what is it with these guys here. I've got more stories about guys here in Morro Bay who just want to give me a ruff time. (Later in El Local I'll tell a few of the stories.)

However today while sitting at the library, I heard a friendly knock on my door and the last thing I would have thought it was is another cop. But low and behold, it was Hannable. He had stopped by to thank me for the "glowing" things I had to say about him. I could tell it kinna blew him away; that people here has such kind words to say about him. But I have to say that it just blows me away seeing the kind of attention this journal page has gotten lately. And it's kind of nice to know that Hannable himself happens to be one of the readers who drop by this site from time to time
   The deal is: when I launched, I thought of this web-site as a losing prospect. I didn't think it was going anywhere. But looking at the growth in traffic;  I see that I must be doing something right because it's leaving Synchro-link way behind in the numbers. It goes to show that it's not only the truck that people are dropping in for, it's the content. Content that is created by a guy as Hannable would say is a guy who marches by the beat of a different drum.
    Thanks for dropping by.

October 20, 2008:
This morning at 10 am I had my little meeting with the
Morro Police department, or should I say Robert Shultz the city attorney and I think Mr. T. Olivas who was just another private citizen who volunteered his time for the hearing. The D. Hamp must have been the captain of the police department, who didn't show. (I might have got Hamp and Olivas switched around, but I'll let you know when I get the decision in the mail) Anyway, officer Bargantzel was a no show as far as witnesses go. And although Robert Shults supplied copies of pictures of my truck and  the inside of my cage as exhibits A,B & C; Kelly sure had things all mixed up and all she would have done is read my journal to get the facts straight. However, all she did was lie anyway. Like the time I was offered to cross examine Martin and Kelly, I said. "What for? They are going to lie anyway."
  The whole thing was ridiculous, I rented and rave. As the private citizen who was taking judgment was concerned: that I would take it to the courts if the judgment didn't go my way.
    I said, "sure, why not, I want to show people just how our Justus system works.
  He mentioned that it would take time and he said that he didn't think I would make a very good impression in the courts by the way I was acting out loud and such.
       I said, I don't care, I'm flexible, I want to see where this goes. I've got five times the amount of traffic logging on to my web-site as before this all started, and we are about to show the the people logging on just how our Justus system works.  I can't buy any better publicity than this. Hell, I don't give a damn if I win or loose, I can't buy this kind of publicity for $200.  I've got all kind of police reports and stuff from the past, but this is on going and I've got people out there logging on every day just to see where it is going to go."
     Get this: I didn't even mention the uploaded files. And as it turned out, the old site @ is now contributing to  about 25% of my traffic, (mostly from Japan.)   
    I pointed out to each of them, "I've got you, two cops and an attorney all just sitting here wasting tax payers money. Tell me: what has this hearing cost the City of Morro Bay so far. Hell, I want to see if the city will spend $500 on a $200 violation. I want to show people how stupid all this is."
     I'm guessing the guy who was acting as judge saw it my way, and realize that it would only cost the tax payer's more money if I take this sillylittle case through the courts. He probably won't let it go any further.
  But who knows? The fun may not be over yet; so stay in touch folks we may get to spend more tax payers money yet. Good day.....

November 6, 2008: not important
  Last night while I was at the library, I had a fireman from next door call the cops on me.  Yeah, this time I waited around to see if I was right.

Funny thing: when officer Syles? showed up; before he even said anything about the complaint, I said, "I guess you just got a complaint from the fire department."
  He did say he got a call about me, but he didn't drill me or anything. We'd never met before and he just listened to my pitch about the fire. He seemed more interested in my truck (the back of it) than anything else. He said he'll check out my web-site.

March 13, 2009:
For weeks now, I've been hearing "they want to run him out of town." And lately it's like I'm being stalk by the Police in Morro Bay. Like this morning. While I did my morning wave check from the hill, I notice my buddies Martin and Kelly drive by. Then I had Hannable arrive from the other direction. He stopped and asked me why I wasn't doing much with my web-site. Well the deal is, I'm always doing something but a person has to cover a lot of pages to know so.


June 20th, 2009:
    I heard today that back in February he went into a coffee shop I visit almost every day and told them they should 86 me. I asked: "Don't you think that is slander?" She said, "yes."
     Boy, the City of Morro Bay better hope I never get a lawyer on my side, because the instances of police harassment is piling up.

Mr. Sattler

Please be informed that your “Camper Box” trailer is parked on our personal property located at the Albertson’s shopping center in Morro Bay, CA (on Quintana Road) and must be removed immediately before we have it towed at your expense.  You are illegally parking your trailer on private property which is considered trespassing. 

I have informed the City of Morro Bay Police Department as well and will be towing your camper box/ trailer by Friday, February 20th, 2009 unless removed.  Please adhere to this message immediately.  Should you have any concerns please call us at the number below and we will inform you as to where your camper box trailer has been towed to.

Mr. Sattler:

It is not a park and ride vehicle as it is classified as a camper shell only (non-motor vehicle) being that it has no drivable wheels made for driving it on the streets and, therefore not considered a motor vehicle according to the Department of Motor Vehicles.  In addition, we are aware of your squatting on many properties throughout the City of Morro Bay and have spoken to the police department about our discontent with you doing so on our property. 

Since your camper shell is considered abandoned property and left on our private property, legally we are allowed to dispose of it.

We are at liberty to have a flat bed tow trailer load your camper shell up as it is on private property, therefore is ours now to dispose of as it.  Please also know, we will be posting new signs that forbid overnight parking of any kind therefore, we are stressing to you now that all of your property, whatever it may be, will be disposed of if found.  In addition, we have cooperation from Albertsons Corporate offices that they will be reporting any future violations from you.  We, as the property owners, have the full ability to declare you personally as a trespasser should your actions continue.  In addition, we ask cooperation from you in order that we do not have to take further steps to declare you personally as trespassing.

If you are a patron of the shopping center, you may shop at Albertsons or any other business that you choose so, so long as the rules of our property are adhered to.  Parking your camping trailer on our property as well as living within it or sleeping overnight is considered squatting.  An motor vehicle parked overnight (your truck) will be towed.  Any non-motor vehicle (your camper shell without an axle or wheels and is not a registered entity with the Department of Motor Vehicles) is considered “abandoned property” and shall be disposed of if left for more than 24 hours

I have been in contact with the City of Morro Bay Police Department and they are fully aware of my request.  We are the owners of this property, therefore, make all decisions to any persons entering our property.  The police department is in agreement with our request.

We are merely asking you as a courtesy if you do not wish to have your property disposed of that you park your camper shell and any vehicle you have OFF of our property during any overnight occurrence.  Should you choose to unload it off the back of your truck for even partial hours throughout the day, you will be thereby leaving it on our property to be disposed of.   In essence, you may not unload it off of your truck nor spend any night whatsoever on our property (whether it be in a camping trailer or motor vehicle or otherwise).


March 18th, 2011:
All day yesterday, all I heard was, "Hannable, that's going to be a hard sell." Apparently he guy a awful lot of people snowed. I was even told that he just received a citizen of the year award from the community. Gee folks, this guy is as phony as a three dollar bill. And I'm not joking.
