By Dee Sherman–
Once again, it took nearly half-an-hour attempting to exit the Applebee’s parking lot on Auburn Boulevard in Citrus Heights.
This is due to the Costco traffic blocking the entrance while lining up to use Costco’s gas pumps. The remedy would be as simple as painting the asphalt with instructions, “Do Not Block” or “Yield,” or words to that effect!
Costco has received frequent complaints about this on-going problem but has steadfastly failed to take remedial measures. In triple-degree heat, coupled with astronomical gas prices, having to stand idling for this easily remedied predicament is unconscionable of Costco management (IMHO)!!
Lack of police response to illegal fireworks?
There is no safe space when you take away respect and responsibility from police. What did you expect???
When everyone belittles and disrespects the police, how can you expect them suddenly to respond to your complaint??? You told them not to. Make up your mind, do you want police protection, or do you want them to go away???? You can’t have it both ways.
To serve and protect is their motto, You don’t get to pick and choose what and where that falls. The letter of the law is clear, if you don’t like it, follow the rules to change it!
Don’t condemn those that choose to uphold it when it does not fit your agenda. If someone is abusing their power, report it, HOLD those responsible for their indiscretions. Don’t blame an entire system off a few bad apples. Most want what is best for those they chose to protect.
Don’t persecute all because of a profession, as you don’t want those persecuted blindly (race, religion or anything else). Let’s keep everyone safe from all the evil that is out there, no matter what the color, profession or anything else! – Kat, Citrus Heights
