    Moved here a few years ago because of the lovely sense of community and safety. I suspect we will be moving away a few years from now because that feeling is fading fast, thanks to the multitude of disgusting people like this taking over.

    Yes, they have a vaccine called “bureaucracy”. Sounds like the residents know the guy though? Should not be that hard to set up an Arlo camera and “teach him a lesson”. Obviously the people with the stand in the picture have a camera, they just need a bing-bong when it goes off.

    Theres is a Facebook thread about this guy right now where lots of Huasna residents claim he’s well known for causing havoc out there. Hopefully they catch him quickly!

    Why do they leave their money in the stand unprotected? Stupid is as stupid does. And the guy in the picture does not look white to me. Just sayin…

      Same reason the unmanned stand is there in the first place, TRUST in your community. Don’t worry, we’re getting rid of it, one new LA transplant at a time.

    …if only we had access to some sort of license plate repository, you know, like a DMV database… I’d probably be able to narrow it down if I had, say, the first three letters/numbers of a plate…

    If only.

      Clearly, you are infected with a severe case of common sense. The authorities are immune to such afflictions.
