I spent at least four hours watching the city council’s meeting before I just had to turn it off. I couldn’t take it anymore. It was torture.
The only reason I was watching in the first place was to hear why the city is flushing aquifer water down the drains, but they didn’t even talk about that. What I saw was an utter shitshow.
One crazy bitch after another, ranting …. no, SCREAMING into the microphone.
One guy asking people to support athletes who use steroids.
Another five people saying Weho doesn’t need police.
And then there was a poor soul named Annie Jump Vicente, who took it to another level.
Annie Jump is a trans woman who ended up with a neck brace after she wouldn’t let police into her building to investigate a domestic violence call.
Let me be very clear….. police brutality is unforgivable, PERIOD. Bad cops need to be whipped in public and then locked up forever.
But if Annie Jump was acting like this in the middle of a crime scene, she shouldn’t be surprised she got arrested.
She threw off the whole meeting with her antics and made it seem OK for others to act out too. I felt bad for the council people, who looked like they wanted to kill themselves. I kept asking myself….. Why do they put up with this?
Seriously, this is supposed to be what a “functioning” government looks like? Some shitty reality show?
Do they have to allow anyone and everyone to come in and make it look like a joke? Why are these random people allowed to waste everyone else’s time like this? Do they even live in this city?
I’m a 36 year old single mom. I moved here right after my divorce was finalized two months ago. My ex (god help her) is an abusive bipolar mess of a human being. So I was really hoping Weho would be a safe, peaceful SANE place for my son to grow up.
This is definitely NOT what I had in mind.
Do better, Weho! Kick out the clowns before its too late!
