On July 25, 2007 around 10PM in the 2400 block of Ontario in PSA
303 Officers Kurtz and Baez were conducting a building check when
one of the officers notices an adult male leaving an apartment
suspected of being a house of prostitution. When questioned, the
suspect lied at first but the then
admitted leaving the suspected
apartment. The suspect then gave consent for the officers to
enter the apartment. Inside officers found several adult males
and two adult females. The back bedroom was split in two by a
blanket and had separate sleeping areas. Among items seized was a
large amount of cash, business cards, condoms, poker chips, and a
notebook. A detective from Narcotics Special Investigation
Division (NSID) made the scene
Poker chips and a notebook! Oh, Harriet the Spy, where did you go so wrong?!

So this next little nugget about the vigilante cabbie who took justice into his own hands doesn't exactly take place in my neighborhood, and not even really in my quadrant:
At some point in the dispute, according to police, the driver, who was outside the taxi, pulled a handgun and allegedly fired one shot into the ground.
It has a very spaghetti western appeal, don't you think? I can just see the cabbie pointing the gun at his fare's feet, taking a long drag on a cigarette, and drawling out, "Doncha know this town is for zones only? Meters? We don't need no stinkin' meters! This is how we teach non-payers to dance 'round these parts, varmint!"

If you read the comments (the best part!!!), you'll notice some conflict- people aren't sure whether to hate the cabbie cuz he's an A-rab, or stick to good ol' fashioned hatin' on the blacks1, but people are definitely clear that brown peoples in general are not to be trusted.

But then the commenters come to the cabbie's rescue:
"All who ride in taxis should show complete trust in taxi drivers, for they are Hard Working."
Didn't I see that logic on the LSAT? Answer B, right?
Well I so happen to know the cab driver that was involved in this. He is a close friend to my family and I know that he didn't intend on hurting anybody. He is the nicest and sweeties person in the world.
I, for one, am sold. Where's Mayor Fenty to give this man the key to the city? What's that; he's not around? No worries, I'm sure the cabbie doesn't need the key; he can just shoot the lock open.

1.I kid you not: yesterday, there was a comment about those "damned negroes" in reference to the cabbies.
