South Precinct was an old supermarket. The supermarket leased a section the parking lot was from a family. The precinct inherited the lease. When the lease was done, the family offered the land to the city and the county for a reasonable price. Both were stake holders in the property. Neither took the offer. Instead, a land speculator bought the property. He roped off his property and let no one park on his land. It has been a decade, but the city has finally bought the land. Now, if they only bring South Precinct back.
On Tuesday, Straight Pipe was handing out exclusions to transients drinking in the park. One circled around behind him, when Straight Pipe turn to scan the mope, the man moved away.
Later in the night, when he reviewed the tape on his car video, he saw the transient had picked up a brick and had been stalking up behind him. As Straight Pipe turned, the mope dropped the brick and walked away.
