"Your Neighbor" Keeps On Shoveling It
A guy who resembles my theoretical character, Your Neighbor, continues to flog the Costa Mesa Police Department in his blog. In his most recent entry today he speculates that the new police chief, Chris Shawkey, will probably not choose to live in Costa Mesa when he relocates from Arizona. He implies that if the new chief chooses to live in a neighboring city that somehow taints his authority and automatically renders him a less effective leader. What a steaming pile of manure!
This guy wouldn't be happy unless the chief decided to move his family into one of the apartments in what he refers to as the "Mendoza Slum", or somewhere deep in the bowels of the Westside. Only then, if you follow this guy's twisted logic, would our new chief be really qualified to lead his troops. More manure!
The way Your Neighbor shovels this stuff, I imagine his yard is a real garden spot. I sure wouldn't want to live downwind of him, though.
If Shawkey finds a home in Costa Mesa that he likes and can afford, that would be just dandy. If he chooses to look elsewhere, that's fine with me, too. Quite frankly, the nature of the job being what it is, I'd recommend that the chief find a place where he can relax and find some peace and quiet at the end of the day. Just because his job is virtually a 24/7 gig doesn't mean he has to sleep on a cot in the police building, for goodness sake!
I mean, can you imagine living next door to Your Neighbor, for example? In the past he's complained about some of his neighbors moving out of town. Well, can you blame them? Who would want to live next door to this guy who, apparently, spends much of his time tuned into his police scanner, listening for reports of marauding illegal aliens. When he's not busy composing one of his racist essays for publication on any number of internet sites he apparently spends much of his spare time on patrol in neighborhood parks, on the lookout for renegade soccer players.
No, I wouldn't blame Chief Shawkey if he looks for a home outside our city limits. Every person should have that right - to choose to live where they please. Except, according to Your Neighbor, people with brown skin and Hispanic surnames.
I wonder just how smart it is to keep poking the local cops with a stick the way Your Neighbor has been doing. For an alleged Mensa member, sometimes he just doesn't seem very smart.
