  • Guilty runners

  • There is no sanctuary.

  • Hmm…How did they decide which one? On Google Maps it looks like every property is a major scene. Why go all the way there and only knock down one? What is the rationale or strategy? Perhaps it’s personal?

    • I don’t know but judging by the twenty people on scene, I’d guess neighbor complaints were the problem.

      • I love the fact your rules are no snitches/attacking each others etc. Kym could you post again some of your rules. Also where is your donate to Redheaded Blackbelt button? Maybe an account number we can wire you and your compadres some money?


    Shouldn’t they be working the fire and stuff like that, instead? More important things to focus on they need to do.

    • Agreed! law enforcement with time for this should join the fire fighters for the time being, I’m sure they would have been there after the fires are out, or Became a victim of one. Even if they don’t have experience fighting fires, the crews need food and water and supplies on the lines and there’s not enough resources to get to all the line crews. I have a friend who was out on that line for 24 hours with no supplies except what was in the truck, not much.

  • Sabertooth Road? Isn’t that were the Flintstones live, down the road from the Rubbles?
