  • "Poor" people with expensive taste...

    This honest to God happened to me today...

    I was driving adjacent to a Housing project when I was flagged down by a distraught, haggard looking female. As I put down my window she frantically asked me if anyone reported finding a pair of sunglasses, before I could respond she said they were "$700 Gucci sunglasses" I replied that I had no no knowledge about her glasses but "would keep an eye out".

    Now granted she could have been full of crap but I can remember responding to calls at welfare recepient homes in the past and being greeted by the sight of their 54" TV in the room.

    Surely I am not the only cop who has experienced this.

    this isnt anything new. at times i'll drive by the pork and bean projects and the parking lot looks like a luxury car dealership. dope dealing is a cash business. as far as the government is concerned, these people are poverty stricken. maybe half of the residents are truly destitute but they dont own cars. the other half are the ones with the tahoe's and escalades with the 20 inch "dubs." typical "ghetto sleds."

        I stopped a woman in the ****ty-city and she had a brand new Nissan 350Z, registered to an address in a complex worth less than her ride.

            We, the taxpayers, also pick up the tab for their rent and food. So what else to they have to spend money on other than 'bling'?

              Don't forget that according to "equal lending" legislation it is unlawful for a lender to base the decision on wether or not to grant credit because the applicant receives government assistance.

              It's all unpaid credit or drug money.

                I see the 60" TV's in Section 8 housing almost daily. We also locked up a female driving a $40,000 BMW for possession, and had to listen to her cry about how she didn't have money to get out of city jail! Amazing

                  ****, if I only paid $100/mo for my house and someone else fed my family I could afford something besides my 78 Jeep and POS subaru.

                      It just reinforces what most citizens find more important to them.....material possessions.

                        It does get kind of aggravating to walk in that trailer that smells like cat $hit and see that they have a huge plasma screen TV... While I look forward to going home and watching my smaller one....

                          I love seeing young hip-hop wanna-bes wearing 2 grand worth of clothing and taken the bus home alone after we shut the party down!

                          $100 in clothes and $2000 car = Sex
                          $2000 in clothes and a $100 monthly bus pass = Many lonely nights

                            Come on now, you know that this is the rent-to-own stuff.

                            I know you've been on a "burglary" where they report this stuff "stolen."

                            "Wow sir this is amazing."

                            "What's that officer?"

                            "The burglars only took the Rent-a-Center stuff and nothing else. Must be a coincidence huh?"

                            "Uhhh yes sir."

                              This is so funny.....

                              I was talking to a WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) Case worker in San Diego. I asked her about the "poor" people I see coming and going to and from the office. More specifically, the Navigators, Escalades, BMW's (even though it is the "cheap" 300 Series) and other rides that are out of my price range. She told me it was Dept. policy that they were not to ask anyone about their vehicle. She said the logic behind it is that they might have "borrowed" it.
                              If you won't stand behind our troops, PLEASE, feel free to stand in front of them.

                              If you won't get an *** whoopin' with me, you're gonna get one from me---stolen
