Let’s see how quick you are on the uptake. The following detail came out on 4/10/09:
“Info exchange re: HMA (hispanic male adult) early 20’s seen in the parking lot yesterday morning at about 1030 hrs…had a large knife stabbing a tree in the parking lot, while staring at the PR…subject associated with a tan vehicle.”
Immediate observations? If you said, “Ummm…how’s about that it occurred yesterday?” You are indeed correct. I also would have accepted “Info exchange? Some guy stares menacingly at you while stabbing a fucking tree and you just want to ask some questions about it?”
Listen, folks. I get the inherent disconcerting nature of having a stranger go all ninja on Arbor Day’s child while intently gawking at you. Really, I do; however, wouldn’t you be a tad more inclined to, oh I don’t know, call the Po-Po when it actually happened? Guess what. 24 hours later there are two things we can do to contact this cat: 1) Jack 2) Shit.
If you, my gentle readers, ever find yourself in a similar predicament. Cast your mind back to your perusal of this post and think to yourself, “I bet MC will think I am a gigantic, moronic douche if I call about this tomorrow.” You’ll thank yourself…and so will I.
