So this morning was very interesting. Once I got to work (about a 20-30 minute commute depending on traffic) I realized I had forgotten my wallet. It took me an hour and a half to get to work today. While that might be normal for those of you living in LA, it is not normal here, and it sucks.
Also…as I was leaving my apartment at 8am, I noticed a Sherrif’s car in the parking lot. Then I noticed a second cop car. Then I noticed 4 police officers. Then I noticed a scary looking skinhead (I’m positive I’ve seen him before) walking in handcuffs out of the next door apartment.
I thought I lived in a relatively safe place. I only occasionally carry pepper-spray, and that’s just during raccoon season by the dumpsters. I will now be carrying it with me wherever I go.
My theories on the arrest:
1) He’s an escaped sexual assault convict, living under the pseudonym “Unkie Lester”
2) He’s an arms and narcotics dealer with a penchant for Nazi culture
3) He’s working a ponzi scheme out of his 1br
