Had an encounter last night with the security guard. God he was like a Barney Five. Those of you who don’t remember Mayberry RFD Barney Five was a cop who thought he was the shit but he wasn’t.
This rent a cop stopped me last night and told me I couldn’t go into the dumpsters. I said yes I can, Hall vs. Greenwood mandates that all trash in the trash is now abandoned property and is now public domain. I guess he had to justify his job.
I said do you bother the Mexicans going through the trash for boxes to sell at recycling centers? He didn’t answer me. Did he bother me because I’m a white woman? Who knows? All I know is that I don’t need the hassle. He told me what hours he is there and that’s when I’ll show up.
Now if I were some gang banger type would he have stopped me? Who knows? All I know is that I’ve lost a lot respect for cops, security guards and law enforcement. They pick on the poor and oppressed. Those who can’t afford an OJ lawyer. Assholes.
