There was once a time in Mount Shasta in which a series of vandalisms took place across the City, affecting at least 16 of the business store fronts within it. The person being directly affected by it was a person I knew who used to be around, as the vadalism took the form of a written libelous message defamatory in nature. I told her at the time she should go to the MSPD about it, because it was their job to take care of stuff like that. She said the police department wouldn’t listen, but I somewhat insisted she go anyway. As it turns out, she was correct, not much was done towards helping her out.
It’s a very long story, one of which I probably won’t be able to tell in it’s entirety, but I thought I would share some of the effort that ended up changing my life direction to the point I’m at now. Here is my old blog, of which I put up something I was writing with the MSPD in mind because I wanted to be seen as somebody who’s effort was worth acknowledging.
What I wrote was supposed to be an exercise in the accountability of Government through means of law, because the law is supposed to be respected and followed. I found a crosswalk ordinance in the Mount Shasta Municipal Code, and from that I expanded the chain of accountability for it into something of an extremely long list of laws and contact information being directed towards the chain of accountability.
Here is the link. I don’t expect this to be of any value to anyone, but I offer it so that people may read a piece of writing that changed my life’s direction.
It was from writing this report, titled “Crosswalks and Budget Time” that I came to learn many new and different things about the world, as I started seeing things differently after all of this.
This report can be read here: http://thenotebookofl.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/tnol-case-i-crosswalks-and-budget-time.pdf
I emailed the staff at the College of the Siskiyous this report, but didn’t see much of a response from telling people about all of this.
Anyway, the old blog of mine, which is different than my main blog, can be see here: http://thenotebookofl.wordpress.com/
I guess for now…that’s it. There’s more to write, but who knows how long I’ll be able to keep using my laptop with the condition it is in currently.
