Apartment Life #353

This is a weekly blog post that I'm calling Apartment Hell  Life. I've mentioned a few times some of the crazy things that go on in and around my apartment complex in the past 25 years that we've lived here and people keep telling me I should write a book. But instead of a book, I've decided to share the crazy things that have happened in and around my apartment complex in the last 25 years here in a weekly blog post. 

There was some loud shouting going on down at drug dealers apartment and the next day their back bedroom window was busted out. I saw they left a small hold in the board, large enough to be able to reach through so they can deal what I suspect are drugs from this window. I see people going up to this window a few times, I mean what else could it be?

On the path that I walk Falcor there are two places that the homeless people set up camp. One is down there in the middle of the picture on the left hand side of the police car. Next to the police car there is a Marshall's car and I didn't want to get any closer since the police were down there making the homeless people pack up their shopping carts and leave so they could bring in the trucks to clean the mess that is right in front of the McDonalds there. 

The other place they set up camp is right behind the wall that separates the alley from my apartment complex and the Cal Ranch parking lot. I took a little video of the mess they left after having stayed in this spot for about a week. After this video was taken the same homeless people that were down by the McDonald's in the first picture, came to this area and also packed up what they wanted to keep in their shopping carts and the police called a clean up crew and they used a pick up truck to load everything else up and take it to the dump. I didn't get any video or pictures of it because I knew the clean up crew would be coming really quickly but there were all kinds of spent needles in and among the debris I filmed.

There were 5 people living between the two spots and every one of them frequent drug dealers apartment a lot. If this place gave a damn about the drug dealing and evicted drug dealer, I'm sure that most of these drug addicts would move somewhere else because they seem to want to be close to where they buy their drugs. Don't get me wrong, I feel bad for the homeless people but I really don't like having to walk past this or having people shooting up around every corner around here and leaving dirty needles just laying about for anyone to stick themselves with. 

Friday night around 8:30PM  I heard this horrible banging against my living room window and wall. For a second I actually thought someone was trying to break into my apartment through the window. I grabbed my tazer and ran to the door, opened the inner door, leaving the metal security door locked. But no one was outside. So I went outside looking for the person but they were long gone. But one of our chairs that is right by our door is broken now. The table is all cockeyed, and the chair had been dragged a couple of feet. They must have been on a bicycle or something to have been gone that fast. They must have been moving pretty fast because my neighbor's video camera who is recording 24/7 wasn't able to catch on video who or what went by. 

The high this week was 66F/18C
The low this week was 37F/2C

So that's it for this week's Apartment Hell  Life! Be sure to come back next week for more.
