The Money shot (from today)


The Money shot
Originally uploaded by Nikchick.

These young men were in the group that was here in front of my house the other day, back again today. I got the money shot this time. Called the security company but was told they’re not “on site” until 3:00pm. Lovely. The cops did roll up and roust them out of the park, eventually. Though the lady cop who did all the talking wasn’t exactly putting the fear into them… just sternly told them to take this shit elsewhere, not next to people’s houses. She also looked right at my place while she was reading them the riot act about the neighbors complaining, so if they’re at all perceptive they know exactly who complained. Not that it was hard to guess, but man, thanks for giving them a pointer.

Seriously, these guys aren’t hurting anyone and I’m not a big ol’ meanie who wants to ruin everyone’s summer fun. In fact, in general Seattle wants pot “crime” to be a pretty low priority and in general I’m perfectly happy with that attitude. But I don’t want it on my front steps and I resent that little kids can’t use the park because these big kids are in there smoking and drinking and being rowdy. Oh, and the peeing in my yard/throwing the empties in my bushes thing? Yeah, I don’t much like that either.

I hope they do indeed take the cop’s advice and “don’t come back to this park, don’t come back to this street” in the future… I posted a bunch of other shots of their activities just because I had them on the camera when I was uploading the other stuff. Nothing exciting but it’s a set on Flickr anyway.
