The question now? With up to 70,000
convicted California felons being dumped on local jails only to be cut
loose due to already overcrowded jails, how many veterans will be

up in county jails," Paul M. Weber, president of the Los Angeles
Police Protective League, tells POLICE Magazine. "What they

Community Watch received a complaint from a tenant and her children on the
property where it's office is located. The tenant complained that there was a
male subject in the parking area of the apartment, injecting himself with a
syringe. Police were called and the subject contacted by the manager of the
property (A Community Watch member). The subject appeared to be under the
influence of drugs. He was irrational and agitated. He refused
verbal requests to drop the syringe and remain seated. When the suspect lunged
toward the watch member, a defensive measure was used to remove the syringe from
the suspect's grasp so it could not be used as a weapon. The suspect
resisted further but fled when the watch member backed off.
This statement was recovered from property of the suspect that was
left behind. The Community Watch member was acting at the direction of
Sacramento Police after the suspect fled. The property was subsequently
booked as evidence when it was discovered he had $10,000 in warrants.
Recovered by police was a skateboard, drug paraphernalia, pornographic
materials, condoms, heavy metal audio tapes, and a tape cassette player
