Wow! Suspicious dog walkers and street urinators. Stay safe out there, boys. And thanks for protecting us. I don't know what we'd do without ya!
JustUs January 09, 2013 at 11:44 PM
Be particularly careful around those darned dog walkers. I heard they are one nasty group of people. By the way, I own a Terrorist ...... ooops........I mean a Terrier. He's one little mean hombre. I had to hogtie him once after he caught me eating one of his dog cookies. Stay safe, boys. Over and out.
Ron Melnyk January 11, 2013 at 02:21 AM
Come on man, why you picking on the cops ? If you note the people in question where looking into park cars. Do you think they were taking inventory or looking to steal ? I for one am not very happy with a group of kids pissing on my lawn. I guess it's OK with you.
JustUs January 11, 2013 at 02:55 AM
Ron, do you know where I can get a taser for my dog? The other day I turned off the TV while my dog was watching "Animal Planet". I thought he was going to rip my leg off. I had to put a choke hold on him. I told you he was a Terrorist.....ooops.......I mean Terrier, didn't I? His canines must be 4 inches long. He sleeps in bed with us too. I don't have any choice. One night I kicked him by mistake. Man alive, he was on top of me like white on rice, brother. I thought he was going to rip my larynx out! Have a good evening, brother. Stay safe out there. It's dangerous as heck with dog walkers and urinators on the street for sure! :^)
Ron Melnyk January 11, 2013 at 03:20 AM
I feel pretty safe. I walk my 160 lb dog every night. I have no idea what you are saying, is there a secert code that one needs to read your note ?
JustUs January 11, 2013 at 03:37 AM
Ron, my terrorist.....err......I mean Terrier weighs 230 and he'd eat your 160 pounder for lunch. Be careful out there, sir. I heard the urinators and dog walkers are out in force. You never know when you might run into one. Stay vigilant.
Michelle Thomas January 11, 2013 at 08:17 PM
It is called a tongue in cheek comment, you know humor? Better go to the doctor and get your funny bone checked.
JustUs January 11, 2013 at 08:20 PM
Michelle, thank you for informing Ron and for your public service announcement.
Ron Melnyk January 11, 2013 at 09:10 PM
I'm sorry, if this is tongue and cheek, then it's very poor humor about a very serious matter, crime. When anything is stolen from your car or home, we'll see if you find it very funny. Being violated in any sense is not funny at all. If ever you are viloated be sure to call a clown, so you can sit around and laugh about it. My sense of humour is very alive, thank you.
JustUs January 11, 2013 at 09:26 PM
Stay safe, Ron. It's Friday. The urinators and dog walkers will be out in droves. I saw one yesterday behind a dumpster in Town Center. If I had your direct # I would have dropped a dime on him. I guess he just couldn't hold it. But that is no excuse. Having a full bladder is no excuse to break the law. Go out and hook up a few of those urinators tonight, Ron. Bag one for the Gipper, sir. If I see any suspicious dog walkers I'll make sure to go to speed dial and call for a marked unit immediately. I'm on your side, sir. Thank you for protecting us.

To JustUs: Until you have had a loved one's life saved by a cop "walking a beat". You don't know what you are talking about. Beside's why are you hiding your identity ? Are you one of the people who was arrested ? Huh ?
JustUs January 11, 2013 at 10:52 PM
"Beside's why are you hiding your identity ? Are you one of the people who was arrested ? Huh ?" I knew you would start with the attacks or the nasty insinuations sooner or later, Ron. And that just proves to me that you have a lousy sense of humor and take things too seriously. Btw, I have never been arrested before. Ever. At one time I held a top secret security clearance. Put some of that in your pipe and smoke it, sir. Now lighten up and relax.
Ron Melnyk January 11, 2013 at 11:28 PM
Cute, you never answered my first question. Having respect for the law and those who enforce it is not a sin. I'm sorry, how have I attacked you ? I asked you a couple of questions. You didn't answer my first question, that's fine, I don't care who you are, sir, I'm wondering why you need to hide. I guess tongue and cheek humour is OK as long as it's directed at someone else, huh ?? Asking you if you were one of the people arrested, is my form of tongue and cheek humour. Over and out cowboy.
JustUs January 11, 2013 at 11:41 PM
"You didn't answer my first question, that's fine, I don't care who you are, sir, I'm wondering why you need to hide." There is nothing in the 1st Amendment that requires a name to go with 'free expression', is there? If you are a cop you should know that. Are you a cop, btw, now that we are playing the '20 Questions' game? I have nothing to hide at all. I am just afraid that some nutball who might not like my opinions might try to stalk me or worse. So one has to be careful in this crazy world. Now do you get it, Ron? If asking me if I've ever been arrested (and I answered) is your idea of humor.....you must be a little strange. 10-7, big guy. Go take your 160 pounder for a walk, or let him walk you. Whatever works! hah. :^)
Ron Melnyk January 12, 2013 at 12:04 AM
To JustUs: No one is questioning your right to protect your indentity, just wondering why ? I never said I was a cop and I'm not. On the contrary, you have to protect your paranoia about being found out. You can't be serious when you say that you are concerned for your personal safety because of this exchange. I agree with your comment about it's a crazy world, but, let's get real. Get a big dog. For your information, my dog knows his place and he walks just fine, otherwise, he's break my neck. Let me correct you, if I may, I asked you if you were one of the people who was arrested for looking into vechicles, not if you were ever arrested. I guess you don't think that's very funny, well it cracks me up. But, you think it's funny to mock people who risk their lives every day to protect us. Oh, by the way, it's 10-4 not 10-7.
