(back) Subject: church prowlers and intruders From: "Charlie Lester" <crlester@137.com> Date: Tue, 30 Mar 2004 11:50:54 -0800   Someone mentioned prowlers and intruders. Yes, that's always in the back of my mind at my churches, too. One in particular because of the way it is situated on a fairly isolated street.   I always carefully check things every step of the way when I am there --- I can arm the church's alarm while I am in the organ loft, so if someone did come in they would trip it. But it's still kinda scary sometimes --- there are a couple of homeless people who sleep in the semi-enclosed patio, and more who sleep in big vans parked on the street. You never know what may be going on in those people's minds when they start hearing organ music wafting from the church in the middle of the night.   The scariest thing that happened so far was when I started to leave one night around 11 p.m. after practicing and came face-to-face with a pit bull. Well, what I mean is, the six doors from the narthex to the outdoor patio at the front of the sanctuary are made of heavy glass -- strong and secure, but see-thru.   When I walked toward the door to leave, a pit bull just, like, sauntered up to the door on the outdoors-side and stopped right at the door. He was so close to the door that his breath was fogging up the glass. He just stood there, looking me directly in the eye - not moving, not flinching. I went "BOO! GO AWAY!" and brandished my umbrella.   He did not budge. I walked down along the other doors and he followed me, not taking his eyes off of me. It was VERY creepy. I sprinted upstairs to the organ loft, heart pounding, wondering if he would be strong enough to crash through the doors -- or be stupid enough to try.   I finally got on my cell phone and called the police. They were less than concerned, of course, yawn yawn, "We'll send someone out." Well, meanwhile, I was trapped in there. My car was parked right by the main entrance so even if I could have snuck out another door, I still would have had to approach where the dog was.   I waited so long, sitting there in the organ loft stairway out of sight of the dog - who WOULD NOT LEAVE - that I fell asleep. When I awoke about a half-hour later the dog appeared to be gone but there was no sign of the police either. I went to the glass doors, banged on them and rattled the knobs, make barking sounds (!), saying, "here doggy doggy" etc... no response so it appeared the coast was clear.   By now it was around midnight, and the outdoor lighting, on timers, had clicked off -- so it was VERY dark out there. I cautiously opened one of the glass doors and stepped out into the patio. I heard something stirring in a dark corner of the patio so I ran, heart racing, back inside and slammed the door -- it crashed against the metal door frame with a very loud BANG.   A bleary-eyed homeless woman came staggering out from behind a bush, rubbing her eyes and scratching herself. I called out to her through the door, "Does someone have a big dog out there?" She said, "It's the man in that big truck" -- and pointed to a plastic-tarped, rattletrap Winnebago parked a little ways down the street. "He don't bite. He was just hongry." [The man, or the dog?!]   YES, this whole scene was VERY surreal.   Well, the coast appeared to be clear so I did finally leave. The next day I told the pastor about what had happened. He was quite concerned that the police had never come so he said he would look into it, but I never heard anymore about it.   I've never seen the dog again since then, but the man's Winnebago is parked out there from time to time. I guess it's an ideal street for homeless people to encamp along --- one side, down the entire block, is the church and school buildings, then on the other side is a large apartment complex with a 6-ft-high solid concrete wall. There are no residences or businesses along that street.   We're probably lucky there's just a couple of people who encamp out there -- in some areas like that, the streets are lined from end to end at night with homeless people sleeping in their vehicles.   We in California have the same situation as the person described in the UK. Here, we have former Governor Ronald Reagan to thank, largely. It was during his administration that a "new policy of caring for the mentally ill" was enacted --- e.g., shutting down state hospitals, psychiatric institutions, halfway houses, etc., with the idea that mentally ill citizens could be better helped when integrated into society, in non-institutionalized settings.   Of course, this really was just a way to cut costs from the California budget. And all you have to do is take a look around any major city and see that the "new policy" was a dismal failure. Urban centers throughout the state have become open-air homeless camps, filled with people who are too severely mentally ill &/or alcoholic/drug-addicts, to care for themselves. So we have them sleeping on our church patios and in cars parked in front of our buildings and homes.   It's sad. It's shameful.   The great irony is that Former Governor/President Reagan is, himself, in so many words, "mentally ill" --- insofar as he is in the advanced stages of Alzheimer's disease. One wonders how differently he would feel about his policies for "caring" for mentally ill if he had no one to care for him ........ and was left to wander the streets of Los Angeles -- mind fogged, body soiled, stomach empty, heart aching, soul dead.   ~ C

When I was 16, I was at church one Sunday evening around 9 pm, practicing for an upcoming performance, and I was there until around 10:30. (The 9:00-10:30 pm slot was my typical practice time.) As always, I was there by myself, so I did not unlock any outside doors.   The next afternoon, I was horrified to get a phone call from the facilities staff, asking if everything had been in order while I was there. I replied that everything was fine.   The person on the phone then went on to tell me that overnight, thousands of dollars of vandalism had taken place inside the church --including to the organ -- by four teenage kids, who had entered the church on Sunday afternoon and found a hiding place for a few hours, waiting for the lights to go off and the last person to leave. The miscreants told police that they had been wandering around the building when they heard someone enter (me!), and returned to their hiding place.   I had no idea they were there. After that, I carried mace on my keyring, just in case of another disaster like that.   Eric     ------------------- > I usually just lock the door when I practice just because I hate not being alone when I do practice. > > When I was young, I used to practice (well, play around on, I wouldn't call it practice) in the church that we were at, in rural Kansas.

"I see you go to = the barber at the same time every weekend." Changing my telephone number would only have disrupted life and = business, and would NOT have prevented him from following me. When he threatened my life for not paying enough attention to him, I finally called law = enforcement officials, and he was tracked down. When he was placed in a mental = institution, I was relieved, thinking that this four-month episode was over. Lo and behold, several months later, I recognized his distinctive, demented voice on the telephone when he called again. He had not been = released, but had manipulated his way into a job at this institution in which he had = access to a telephone, and had figured out how to get an outside line. After a = lot more wasted time and energy, he was finally put securely away... for the = time being. One never knows who is out there, and how determined they will be.
