I had a run in with a stray dog just now. The cop who showed up handled me and basically showed basically like cops treat me regularly being a Target
So they got the address of where I am staying now on a report.
One of the neighborhood people said something very revealing. This woman kept telling me to leave the area she said just leave just go let it go. I Told her that I had called the cops also And that she can't control me just the way I cannot control her actions. A Man next to her said "You can BE controlled". However the closer it came for the cops to arrive it wasnt such a joke to these people anymore. They started taking their UNLEASHED dogs inside, rejecting the stray dog and generally looking nervous. Got video.
The smart mouth male got into a car with the woman who told me to leave. Gee if you called the police then why r u leaving? Not so tough now r u?
Cops and brutality and jail are all these people understand. That statement was pretty revealing.
The cop said that there was no leash law when I asked about San Antonio. The internet says it does have one however. I will follow up on this. Police non emergency paused then told me she "wasnt sure" of the leash law status. (LOL). Nice pause..
The reason it's important to stay in the situation when someone calls the police on you as a TI is becuz you must also call the police and tell your side of the story or make a compliant. If I did not do this then the woman making a statement that I was going crazy would be all that there was on file.
And the officer did make that part of a statement witj the heading "disturbance".
I saw this on his computer screen but saw no evidence of him making a report to 311 the animal control unit. I just have to trust he does as he says.
because I certainly I'm going to call on monday.
I admitted to yelling at the dog who had chased me down the street trying to bite me. I simply wont tolerate it.
The dog was in a pack instinct mode due to another unleashed animal protecting his yard. The Problem is, the stray dog is not trained to stop at the edge of a property. The officer experience seeing the same stray dog chasing a bicycle in a while giving me a ride safety in the squad car. He He made sure to comments that the dog was inviting anyone in that particular instance.
Which I ignored because he claimed to not be in expert on animals he just answers emergency calls. Suddenly he seem to know a lot about dog behavior where are the moments before he was regarding what I was saying about have mods because he claimed them we are not dog experts we just answer the call.
Are you going to him and ask him to imagine how it must feel being on a sidewalk with one dog without a lease coming to the edge of a yard barking and another loose dog comimg up on sidewalk behind you. At the onset of such an act of aggression one is not sure what is happening, which dog is trained and which isnt.
The stray dog chased me way beyond the other dogs property line and was going to bite me.
I got very pissed and fight/flight set in, which is beyond my control BUT I AM ALWAYS ABLE TO THINK AND RATIONALLY. I simply made a bad decision to go back after the dog after the atrack. I am not used to such irresponsibility in an area with this many animals.
Boston is crowded and a high crime area. My reaction was the norm for the area of the country I am from. This is not so much high crime as it is seemingly full of idiots. Many people here don't seem to care about their quality of life. I do and I'm going to defend myself.
but I got something out of today's experience didn't I?
An Extremely revealing statement that I can be controlled.
