  • Full Moon Weekend

    I'd like to start off this thread by saying that I am a firm believer that the full moon most definitely has a negative effect on human behavior. Some of you may disagree with me, but it's a belief of mine formed over 16 total years in LE, dealing with citizens on both sides of the telephone.

    A quick check of your calendars might show that the full moon was last Saturday the 21st. Those members from Southern California will also know that it's also been a very warm weekend. A full moon combined with warm weather almost always brings a LOT of trouble, and last weekend didn't disappoint. In short, it's been busier than ****.

    Our more unique calls:

    1. Nutcase calling up saying that her neighbors are poisoning her by injecting poison into her fruit trees, whose fruit she picks and eats.

    2. Nutcase who called 911 from every pay phone he came across, saying he was lost and needed directions to get home. The dispatchers gave up giving directions after the 6th 911 call. An officer working in dispatch threatened to arrest him for 911 abuse after the 11th 911 call.

    3. Nutcase who woke her neighbors up at 0100 hours, totally hysterical. She said she saw her dead husband's ghost in her apartment, and the only reason we got called was because her neighbors didn't know how to get rid of her.

    4. A rocket launched from Vandenberg AFB, 150 miles away in Santa Barbara County, which left a beautiful trail in the setting sky. It also provoked a near-panic in my city (and elsewhere) with people thinking it's anything from Saddam's SCUDS to biblical Armageddon.

    And how was your weekend?

    I agree with you, Sig. The strange ones do come out under a full moon.

    I know that you're somewhere on the left coast, though, so I can't help but wonder how you notice the difference.

      It's not just on a full moon when the strange ones come out. I could think of a few from theis forum that would fall into that category.

        Very quiet weekend, despite the moon. We did have an unusual call of a drunk teenage girl who had urinated on herself & refused to leave Victoria's Secret in the mall at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Oh, & she had a snake in her purse. [Eek!]

          (I know this is long, but it’s a great read-I actually got to utter one of those classic lines we usually just dream about!)

          Friday-

          Had a guy report a "stabbing." As soon as I walked into the ER, I recognized him as one of the local scumbags named Jason. He has been “in trouble” since he was 10 years old, and (I thought) was still a juvvy. The nurse said “This is ‘Josh’ and he…” Both he and I corrected her at the same time “Jason.”

          She realized then that I knew him. He alleged several AMs assaulted him and a friend FOR NO REASON ( ) while they walked down the sidewalk. Of course he couldn’t describe any of them and OF COURSE they were driving a “red Honda.” He told me all the details, while the BS detector pegged out. He also reminded me that THAT DAY (Friday) was his 16th birthday, and reminded me (by dancing around and shaking his scrawny little behind) “Sixteen now! Wooo-hooooo! You can’t make me go in at 11 PM any more! Wooo-hoooo! It’s my birthday! Ain’t you going to wish me happy birthday?” (We have a curfew for 15 and under on school nights of 11 PM, unless with a parent or guardian.)

          I gave him a smirky look and said sarcastically “Happy Birthday!”

          His story was so full of holes it made me laugh. Normally, I'm mad when I know someone is making up a story to report, but with him, I knew it was only a matter of time until I found out the truth, and then charged him with Filing A False Police Report, so I was actually laughing as he told it. His cut didn’t look like a knife cut anyway-it was only about

            I think I had more calls Saturday night than in the previous four weeks put together. Just the usual stuff, but for practically every call, I was ten miles or more away. And I broke my three-week reportless streak.

                Friday was the worst of the weekend. I started my shift at 1:30 pm and worked until 3 am. it was non stop mental cases and just weird *** calls.

                First a guy walks into the lobby and says.. Yeah, I am here to turn myself in. apparently he has a GM warrant for credit card fraud. no biggy right? then second guy comes in and says, yeah I saw three arab men with white things on their head over at the bus hub. they looks really strange, really strange, (note this guy looks like an effin mental case).then the halfway house across the street the guy comes over because he broke up with his crackho GF, who was currently over there smoking crack and he wanted her out. Big fiasco trying to figure out who the real tenant was.Turrns out the crackho GF has two warrants one of which is a felony for Cont. Substance. THEN.... three DWI's before 10 pm.
                One chick Blows a .26. totally obliterated crying out, "I want my mommy".

                Saturday starts off with a guy walking in my front lobby saying... yeah... I got a warrant for my arrest... (business type dressed nice and actually sorta hot) I was like, "yeah right", but no no .. he was serious. What are the chances of two days in row. He did, but I told him to go to Another PD cause we were too busy (hence Discretion...it was a misd. for abandonded vehicle that he sold years before to someone who never changed the title...$50.00 bail) he said we were already the second PD that wouldnt take him on the warrant. I just laughed, shrugged and said "sorry".) Saturday night was just loud music complaints. Guy complaining tells me.. Yanno, I could stomach it if it was good music, but it aint, it sounds horrible...they play like $#!t. we actually got numerous calls on the crappy band. then officer gets into a high speed car chase through 3 or 4 cities, I cant even count. They get a dog and chopper out, but couldnt find him. Upon searching the vehicle they find papers suggesting it was a guy with aa GM warrant for DWI. and was CANC IPS. Then.. right before I was leaving.... lady calls up... NOTORIOUS for calling at 3-4 am saying people were unscrewwing her lightbulbs in her garage. and that they were in there now.

                (Last week it was ten arabs jumping around in her back yard. And before that they were in her basement turning her lights on and off.)

                I've been noticing there are a lot more mental cases calling in "arab" suspects. It's almost annoying.

                So I think it was everywhere.. I absolutely agree with the full moon theory!
                Oh... Oh... I know you di-int!

                  IMHO, most cops, paramedics, and ER workers agree with the Full moon theory, even if those riding desks think it's just bunk.

                          Ladies and gentlemen, can I please have your attention for a few moments. I feel that it is time to recognize a very important group of people.

                          There are a group of unsung heroes in this country. They fill a vital role, yet they go largely unnoticed. They perform a thankless task that few could could do adequately. In return for performing this thankless job, these unsung heroes, who touch many lives everyday, recieve little recognition, low pay, and in many instances, our scorn.

                          Now I'm sure all of you are wondering who I could possibly be refering too. Well, its the Police Dept. Front Desk Clerk. Thats right, it's the Police Dept. Front Desk Clerk. Those brave men and women who sit at the front lines of the fight against crime!

                          A brief look at the day in the life of a Police Dept. Front Desk Clerk will show us why these brave souls deserve our respect and admiration. Often times they rise in the wee hours of the morning, and trudge off to work to face a day filled with endless deadlines, and countless stacks of paperwork! They have to walk the minefield that is inter-office politics and backstabbing. Then of course they have to deal with some of the worst elements of society that enter the lobbies of police departments all across this great land. And let us not forget the physical dangers that are inherent in this most noble of professions. The paper cuts, the errant staples, and the ever growing number of cases of carpal tunnel syndrome!

                          With that said. I feel that it is time to recognize the men and women who serve as Police Dept. Front Desk Clerks. Therefore, I am declaring today, Tuesday September the 24th, Police Dept. Front Desk Clerk Day!!!

                          In closing, I would just like to say that we should all take a little time out of our busy day to thank all of our Police Dept. Front Desk Clerks! Buy them flowers, send them a card, and give them a hug, because they've earned it!

                          Thank you for your support.

                              Okay I'm SORRY! I was thinking about administrators who never take a call and never patrol, and just sit back, look at their "degree" and tell others about "how it is" in LE. And as we know from the media assaults on our 2nd Amendment rights, people tend to give credence to what these numb-n*** say or think, as if they are "more qualified" or smarter than the average cop ( ) since they are in ADMIN positions.

                              And Insane, you are ALAWYS PMSing!

                              That's okay-it's actually starting to turn me on-you must be a HE** of a WOMAN if the system is that operative.
