  1. What, did he have some psychic sense that a crime was being committed? My mom used to caution me about looking thru key holes since you never know what you might see. EDSO wants the publics help? They are not getting any help so far. Maybe its their PR problem. Lots of signs thanking the fire fighters during and after the King Fire but none for the EDSO until the EDSO started putting up their own signs for example. A deputy went to my landlord and told him I should be evicted and he did it. A hateful thing to do yes. But hateful things are what the EDSO specializes in. Never have protected or served anyone I know of but themselves.
