New Monterey Police Blotter – April 2013

Smart Meters True Purpose – Controlling What You Plug In

To all the alarmed people that only complained about EMF radiating from the PG$E meter, how do you feel about the REAL threat of so called ‘Smart Meters’ now?

Plans to control the energy use of appliances in British homes have been criticised for being ‘Big Brother’-esque.

The National Grid wants to be able to switch off new appliances such as fridges and freezers remotely via sensors, to avoid power cuts if there is too much demand for the country’s electricity supplies.

The technology has been backed by the EU’s European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E).

Over the weekend Viktor Sundberg, energy strategy manager of appliance manufacturer Electrolux complained to several European news outlets that this is “Big Brother technology on a grand scale.”

Gun Buyback Weapons Are Being Data Mined

Turn In Your Weapons

Hope that the gun you gave up was not used in a crime, they know where it came from.

The firearms will eventually be test fired to record ballistics details.

Though there is no evidence that buybacks reduce violent crime, that’s not the only goal of the events, Myers said.

“They increase community and public awareness and gun safety,” she said. “They remove the availability of weapons … for potential accidental shootings and thefts or (from) those with mental health problems.”

CHP Has Cause To Conclude That Stuart Elder Was Drunk

Sizing up to be a quite a case. Lawyers now accusing news of yellow journalism

On Monday, Puri issued a statement denying the allegations and making Elder out to be a concerned man who took care of his friend in the crash’s aftermath and is mourning the deaths he caused.

He said Elder “will be vindicated in a court of law.”

But California Highway Patrol public information officer Bob Lehman said the officers — who are highly trained in accident investigation and determining whether a driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs — had cause to conclude Elder was drunk, though he wouldn’t go into details. He also noted the CHP is the top echelon when it comes to skills, training, technique and information regarding DUI investigations.

Ex Tree Posse Turned Seal Posse Responds To Losin' Susan

P.G. Newcomer Akeman has a new calling against humans – watching seals and blocking access to the beach.

Tom Acheman

I may not know all the definitions of vigilante, but I believe Susan Goldbeck used the term erroneously in a guest commentary in Thursday’s Herald. She was concerned about efforts to protect harbor seals and the babies they have each spring on Pacific Grove beaches.

The city applied its policy this month when the first baby seal in known history was born at Lovers Point. After mom and pup were spotted on Sunday morning, city police asked Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary’s Bay Net docents to provide a human presence at Lovers Point. Public Works brought barricades and yellow tape; the Marine Mammal Center brought signs.

PGPD: Bring Your Drugs To Us

Bummer duude, it’s not a drug buy back program.

“The goal of the program is to allow citizens to deliver all of their unused, unwanted or expired medications to law enforcement officials who can in turn dispose of these controlled substances in a safe, secure and non-hazardous manner, potentially saving lives and protecting the ecosystem,” according to PGPD Cmdr. John Miller.

The program is anonymous, and medications may be dropped off in their original containers or deposited directly in the disposal bin. Liquid products should remain sealed.

PGPD: Bring Your Drugs To Us

Humans Or Seals, Who Is Allowed To Block Access To The Beach?

The opposition is watching Losin’ Susan move signs . .

It is curious the city of Pacific Grove, which appears to have a back door role in all this controversy, must have had a decided change of heart regarding marine mammals.

The city’s solution to keeping all marine mammals off Lovers Point Beach just a few years ago was to bang pots and pans to frighten them away. Now it seems we need to keep the public off the beaches if so much as one mother and pup venture into those areas.

Even Lovers Point Beach was recently closed after one mama seal appeared on the beach with her pup. It was mighty cute, yes, but the public was denied access to the beach and beach-related businesses were adversely affected.

Stuart Elder Will Be Vindicated

Says lawyer. The two ladies that died in the accident were former owners of Stone’s Pet Shop, a P.G. institution.

Witnesses said Elder was speeding and weaving between lanes while he was driving southbound on Sloat Road away from the Inn at Spanish Bay.

But Elder’s San Francisco-based defense attorney, Paul Nathan Puri, said Elder was not intoxicated and was not on his way home from the posh Pebble Beach Food & Wine festival or any related after-parties.

Puri also accused KSBW, other local media and law enforcement of “colluding in sensationalist yellow journalism and debased character assassination for their mutual profit and gain.”

….

“Stuart Elder will be vindicated in a court of law,” Puri said.

Stuart Elder Will Be Vindicated

P.G. Police, This Bad?

pg cops 1980s

P.G. can afford a kooky environmental manager but not a ‘sustainable’ police force?

PGPD is in trouble

In my 24 years as a police officer with the Pacific Grove Police Department, I have never seen the staffing levels and employee morale so low. It all starts at the top.

Most able-bodied officers are looking for employment elsewhere. The officers are on a leaderless group exercise and the city is exploring ways to contract out the department.

Look at what eight months of contracting a police chief has resulted in: five officers and one civilian have left and more may go.

If the residents of Pacific Grove want to keep their officers on the street and keep their station open to the public, they have to be heard by city officials and the City Council, or it won’t be America’s last hometown for long.

Elder Not DUI In Fatal Accident – Says Attorney

Lawyer tells about Stuart Elder’s heroics for his passenger.

An attorney for a Pacific Grove luxury home builder involved in an April 7 collision that left two Pebble Beach women dead and another woman seriously injured issued a statement Monday saying his client was not under the influence of alcohol when the accident occurred.

The statement, emailed to reporters from the office of San Francisco Bay Area defense attorney Paul Nathan Puri, said Stuart Elder, 30, expressed condolences for the deaths of Linda La Rone, 65, and Sharon Daly, 72. They formerly owned a local pet store.

Puri described his law firm as a boutique practice that specializes in “defense against serious accusations and restoring the reputations of good people in their communities.
