Police dispute that Ray is a target

San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Caren Ray contends a pellet or BB shot through her window was done purposely by someone standing in her small private front yard, an allegation police say the evidence does not support.

“Someone shot through my window,” Ray says on Facebook. “Guess this is what the general election is going to be like. Whoa.”

After noting the difference in the height of the hole through her screen and the hole through the window, Ray determined a very tall person trespassed into her private yard and shot into her window.

“The scary part is that given the angle (shown by the screen), the person had to be at least 6′ tall standing in my secluded yard, or a small child standing on my porch,” Ray says on Facebook. “It really had to be the former.”

However, Arroyo Grande police said the BB or pellet shot through Ray’s window Sunday evening appears random and was most likely children from a nearby wooded area. There have been dozens of BB gun shootings reported during the past few months, police said.

“We do not believe this was politically motivated, we believe this was kids,” Arroyo Grande Police Sergeant Dan Langstaff said. “She lives in a place near a creek where kids congregate. We know kids run around with BB guns all the time. It appears random.”

In addition, several former law enforcement officers looked at the photo of the window Ray posted on Facebook and also do not agree with Ray’s conclusion. They said the hole is slightly oval and that the hole through the window is lower than the hole through the screen, suggesting a BB or pellet was most likely on its downward trajectory. They determined the shot was likely taken from 30 to 200 yards away depending on the gun used.

I wonder if the guy who woke up with his hair cut off, his cell phone missing and his butt branded with the word bitch a couple of years ago is 6′ tall? LOL


Pelican1

Was he wearing a medallion?


Kevin Rice

Oh! Ouch! You are referring to Caren Ray’s bawdy sex-club party days (see photo, page 8):


http://s.integrityslo.org/m/election/2014/sloh3-yahoo.pdf


And Caren Ray’s post (see page 4) as “SLO-Cop-U-Later” in reply to “Stubby Python” who apparently is the branded individual:


SLO-Cop-U-Later (Caren Ray) writes, “And Python- that’s not YOUR ass. Yours was tied to a column with a five dollar bill stuck in your crack.”


Kevin Rice

CORRECTION: Supervisor Caren Ray indicated “Stubby” was victim of a generous $5 gift and WAS NOT the branded individual.


Cindy

Yup, I believe the club was named something like the Hash Hound Harriers….It was one of the funniest stories I ever read as it was referring to the behavior of a newly “appointed” City Council member who was out partying by having sex on the trails and doing jello shots in the local WalMart parking lot. LOL


Oh yeah and branding her friends butts with the word bitch!! Geeezzzzzzz and then she got “appointed” to the BOS, WT_?


Justducky

Did you miss out on this fun time, Kev? The years have gone by, but it may not be too late for you too to learn to cut loose and laugh once in awhile. Yes, we’ve all grown up now but I’m getting the feeling that there is some jealousy here as you were not part of this amusing group. So if you can’t join ’em beat ’em is that it?


MaryMalone

When you have to stoop to blaming the messenger, it is a sure fire way to show you cannot lodge a logical argument against the message.


Justducky

Kevin, I’m really not quite sure how you have come to the conclusion that this group was a “sex-club.” Were you there, drooling, while peeking through the bushes? I’m curious where your first hand evidence is or are your fantasies just getting the best of you again.

zaphod

spin?

no, sophomore level language arts semantics

double entendre and hyperbole (what would Frank Zappa say)

the signifier is not the signified

silly

if the hashers are “clean” enough for Atlanta GeorgiaPBS the hashers are clean enough for mission prep or AG

the map is not the territory the description is not the described the symbol is not the symbolized don’t be fooled by double entendre hyperbole


Kevin Rice

Ha ha! Good one. Every parent wants “SLO-Cop-U-Later” to be their kids’ teacher.


zaphod

The nick name from a game made in/for fun , has non-relevance to her professional abilities, there happen to be ‘cop-u-laters in almost every harrier club,

double entendres

only people in the game used that name.

doing otherwise is shallow and mean.

meaning less and less


nipomian

“The nick name from a game made in/for fun”


That might be looked as +kids will be kids+ when the members ARE kids. Not when an adult member was active in the club very few years ago and now that same adult requests the votes of other adults electing her a county district supervisor.


MaryMalone

Not everybody is such as loser that they have to join a club of fellow losers in order to get some bizarre jolly over drinking in a public parking lot in front of minor children and participating in bizarre displays of public nudity.


MajorityFan

You have a twin brother?


As the world turns

Ray is trying to make political hay out of children playing with BB guns. Her poor logic, made on this situation and decisions while sitting on the Board of Supervisors, shines brightly. Great job Ray at making women look like fools.

Got the chords for that?


Pelican1

the song is “Get Over It” by the Eagles…circa 1994.

Go to chordify.net to find the chords and tabs

Turn on the tube and what do I see

A whole lotta Caren cryin’ “Don’t blame me”

She points her crooked little finger at everybody else

Spends all her time feelin’ sorry for herself

Victim of this, victim of that

Your momma’s too thin; your daddy’s too fat


Get over it

Get over it

All this whinin’ and cryin’ and pitchin’ a fit

Get over it, get over it


Get over it

Get over it

If you don’t want to play, then you might as well split

Get over it, Get over it


It’s like going to confession every time I hear you speak

You’re makin’ the most of your losin’ streak

Some call it sick, but I call it weak


You drag it around like a ball and chain

You wallow in the guilt; you wallow in the pain

You wave it like a flag, you wear it like a crown

Got your mind in the gutter, bringin’ everybody down

Complain about the present and blame it on the past

I’d like to find your inner child and kick its little ass


Get over it

Get over it

All this bitchin’ and moanin’ and pitchin’ a fit

Get over it, get over it


Get over it

Get over it

It’s gotta stop sometime, so why don’t you quit

Get over it, get over it

Caren,

If you’re looking for sympathy, you’ll find it in the dictionary between $&*@ and syphillis.


slojustice

Maybe it is the same ghost that blew out mayor Jan’s car window. Or, maybe it is an attempt at getting some attention.


smiley

The FBI can determine the exact location of the shooter. They should interrogate whoever is next in line of succession, check the grassy knoll for BBs and we should all spend a few days reviewing the Zapruder film.


SLOthinker

Is there a grassy knoll nearby?


r0y

It saddens me that a “story” like this has the number of comments it does. I suppose CCN has to run it so as not to appear totally against Ray (the feeling I’ve gotten from past articles during the run-off), so that is to be commended. However, this is such a “non-story” and only makes Ray look like a petty and small attention-seeker.


I didn’t need a LEO to tell me it was a downward arc, that would be my first assumption; for you see, Ms. Ray, gravity, like many politicians, sucks. Things go up, things come down. That should have been your narrative, then let a paid hack come in and suggest it was personal, that way you’re at least once removed. The DCC is slipping.


dogeatdog

The ” non- story” does not make Ray look petty and attention seeking, Caren did that all on her own.


MaryMalone

Please don’t blame this on the DCC. This whole circus has the stench of Adam HIll to it.


Kevin Rice

What’s the difference? Really. Is there any?


MaryMalone

Grow up, Kevin. Painting all Democrats with the same paint brush that HIll uses to paint himself with his own brand of nincompoopery is illogical.


That as just as bad as Democrats who try to use the illogical argument that because the Koch-funded Tea Party has its roots in the Republican Party that means all Republicans are Teabaggers.


Perspicacious

Interesting, Adam Hill’s hack is the one who orchestrated Covello’s smear campaign against Dow. Is he running Ray’s campaign also? If so, Compton is a shoe-in.


Bserious

Why is the first reaction here to attack the victim?


pasodowny

There is no victim. That Caren Ray makes this an issue instead of quietly talking to police to look into it is an example of her poor judgement.


SanSimeonSam

There is no attack here…there is no victim….


dogeatdog

Adam this is a bb hole, not AKC gun fire shot at the house. She was not even home. She is the one who drew all the attention to herself by stating she thinks it because of the political race. Ir was ONE little hole, if it were half dozen or so I might think someone is sending her a message. She wanted the attention she got it.


Kevin Rice

American Kennel Club?


dogeatdog

Kevin now that was funny and you got me.


MaryMalone

Oh, puke.
