When The Police Don't Care

The West Hollywood police have run out of shits to give. I've known this for a while but sometimes I kinda forget and am reminded when I am forced to deal with them. I try not to because I know that they don't care about what you do as long as you don't park where you shouldn't be or speed. Otherwise this city is a goddamn wild zone. You can cross wherever you please, whip out knives, rob people and get away with it.

Recently I called because a few days ago there was this guy in the parking lot screaming at the top of his lungs about nothing. Was he sick? Crazy? Disturbed? High? I don't care. He was a short Black guy with a three foot blond wig and a baseball cap and a lot of garbage. After about two hours of this the police rolled up. Three cars. He didn't stop acting crazy. Most times when the cops show up people tend to tone down their levels of lunacy. Not this guy. He had a fewer less fucks to give than the police of West Hollywood.

West Hollywood's Monster Parking Lot

"The City of West Hollywood has awarded a contract to T.B. Penick & Sons, to construct the 200-car City Hall Automated Parking Garage and Community Plaza Project which will be located at 8300 Santa Monica Boulevard (City Hall)." 

Oh, boy. This monster building has been in the works for a while now and when I passed it today it looks like it is far from being completed. According to WeHo's site about this new parking lot there are supposed to be 200 spaces available for parking. Let's assume that automatically about 30 of those will be for city hall vehicles. This was supposed to be finished in May of 2013. Ha! Oh, and when I say it is automated I don't mean with just robot arms that go up an down. Your car is physically moved somewhere else while inside.
