Day 24 – The mystery car has been solved (kind of)… It appears that it belongs to some type of security that the nursing home has hired. That still doesn’t explain why they can park on the street whenever they like.
Today the union members were served breakfast by the Detectives Endowment Association. It was a great treat for the members seen as how they have been harassed by the local police for every little thing they do. I mean they can’t even hang “On Strike” signs?! What kind of strike is it when you can have signs saying On Strike Against Kingsbridge Heights?! I have never heard of such a thing.
I would like to thank the Detectives Endowment Association for treating the members to breakfast and giving them the respect they deserve.
Tonight was not such a nice night, the air outside was thick with fumes from the generators. Maybe it was because of the rain but the fumes were horrible right outside my house. We have been forced to live with these lights for weeks now for no apparent reason except that no one wants to take responsibility to shut them down. We need these shut down, the light, the noise, the fumes… It is unbelievable that we have to live like this.
To make matters worse we can’t even complain about it without being afraid of being arrested. Yes you heard me right, arrested! My girlfriend was threatened with arrest for making a false 911 call about the fumes. She did NOT call 911 but rather 311 which is supposed to be the answer to all problems in the city. Well apparently when you call 311 and state that you smell fumes they automatically dispatch the NYFD to inspect the area, this makes sense in case of a gas leak. However, what reason did the evening Captain of the 50 have for coming to the scene as well? Is it usual that FDNY and PD are called? If so what about the PD that are stationed outside my house 24 x 7?
So the Captain arrives and doesn’t ask what’s going on or is everything ok, he goes off on a rant about he knows what this is all about and that he knows that my girlfriend is related to me. What does this have to do with anything? Even if I am 100% for the union members what does this have to do with her? Is he saying that there is a conspiracy here? And if so what good does calling 311 do for that? Anyway after that he states he is going in the house to investigate, he was asked to wait for me but instead he pushed his way in. Now as far as I know he has no right to enter my house without permission, please correct me if I am wrong. I have nothing to hide but what gives him the right to forcefully enter my home? After entering he made a big scene about turning the gas and water off in the house, for what reason I have no idea. By the time I got to the house he was gone and the fire department was leaving as well. They did not find any fumes in the house but they did say outside was thick with the smell of diesel. They also stated that the smell could be brought in on your clothes and that is what you could be smelling.
To show you that I am not imagining the fumes take a look at this video and watch as the diesel smoke rises in front of the big flood lights. Watch the last couple of seconds for the best shot of the fumes.
That’s it for today, enough don’t you think? I am off to finish some signs for the rally tomorrow.
Till tomorrow, STAND STRONG!
