I’m so broke I aint even got a coin to flip on the Shrimp Ramen versus Beef Ramen issue anymore.
Yeah, man, well, just smoke this shit, then no shrimps, beefs or what the fuck evers even matter.
Okay, just wait ‘til we get a block or two from here, they have some kind of satellite police station at this market.
Oh. Didn’t you hear?
Hear what? That bird?
What? No. About the layoffs, the police layoffs?
Naw man, I thought you were talking about that bird over there.
Ellis’ eyes followed Henry’s finger to the Eastern side of the lake shore and found a giant bird similar to some prehistoric predator that could have easily caused her species to go extinct in it’s own time.
What in the fuck is that?
Look, just, uh, focus for a second.
ALRIGHT. ALRIGHT. What’s so god damn pressing?
Okay, fine, alright, so the Oakland police department laid off like a hundred fucking cops. Right? And they are laying off a lot more next year. So, they are short staffed. Or whatever. They posted something on the OPD website, listing all the calls that they wouldn’t respond to anymore.
And. Well, they aren’t coming out anymore, not for for burglary, grand theft, extortion, vandalism, loud music, exposing another to poison, injuring a power line or whatever, stealing someones dog.
Wait, what do you mean? Not coming out?
Like if you dial 911 about any of those things, they won’t show up.
Oh damn. So, like, uh, what can we extort?
I don’t know, a bank? Or do you extort a person?
Uh, wow, that’s like an ‘Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader’ question..
Yeah, fuck we might as well just steal someones fucking dog, it’s more straightforward.
Wait. Why did you bring this pig shit up?
Oh, right, well, if they aren’t coming out for robbery, they aren’t coming for smoking weed on the street.
Shit, why didn’t you say that in the first place?
Don’t know, let’s get high.
