Start packing some heat folks, because this kind of idiotic cowboy capering is not only being approved of now by our local Burbank City Council and Police Department, it’s actually being encouraged:
No sane police department would tell this character that it was ok for him to have gone running around with a gun trying to apprehend suspects. Or refrain from seriously warning him. That’s what the POLICE are for.
And who in their right mind would immediately go in and take a shower (of all things) right after a prowler had been spotted looking through their bedroom window?
Morons with gun. Just what we need more of.
Remember the days when smart and civilized people were living on Skyline Drive? You can just imagine the Zieglers or Segalls or Reithermans or Alexanders chasing after someone with a gun. Yeah, we remember the big posses they always got together to protect and preserve the local peace. Who needed the BPD?
What the hell is going on these days to normalize such aggressively idiotic behavior?
Oh yeah, we remember him …
BURBANK : Sutliff Loses Backing Over Cable Charge
February 22, 1995|VIVIEN LOU CHEN
Gary Sutliff, a candidate for Burbank City Council, has been charged with possessing a cable box that enables viewers to watch premium channels without being billed.
The misdemeanor charge immediately cost Sutliff the endorsement of the Firefighters Assn. for Tuesday’s election.
Sutliff is a retired battalion chief who worked for the Burbank Fire Department for 31 years. He faces a maximum fine of $1,000 or 90 days in county jail, or both, if convicted.
Sutliff’s home was searched last April as part of an investigation by Sammons Communications into a possible conspiracy to manufacture and distribute the boxes, Burbank Police Sgt. Michael Keeffe said.
According to Sammons’ office manager, Joanne Burger, Sutliff told the cable company last month that he mistakenly bought the box at a swap meet and wanted to be billed for any services he improperly received. But Sammons declined because it would be too difficult to determine when Sutliff actually obtained the cable box and how much to bill him, Burger said.
Hope the cable guy’s armed when he visits Skyline Drive now. Kind of makes you hope they are.
