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.
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
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.
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.
makes me realize that I wasn't so crazy trying to get political asylum in
5, 2008: Not important
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
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.
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.
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
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
"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
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
The deal is: when I launched Synchro-link.com, 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.
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)
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
Get this: I didn't even mention the uploaded files.
And as it turned out, the old site @ mystupidrules.info is
now contributing to about 25% of my traffic, (mostly from
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
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.....
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
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
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.
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
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

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.
This is where the posting of the MBPD letter is going to be posted. It's just journal entries of the situations I've been in. I even considered creating a web-page called Rookies and Such, for those encounters that didn't amounted
