I just went through the California firearms check. I was on tenterhooks, because disinformation had been used to mess up my background check for work. Either clearing that up fixed disinformation in government databases, too, or they are harder to fool to begin with.
With the Oakland police sex scandal spreading to the SFPD, we should wonder if the unidentified woman who was breaking into my place was just some random prostitute. Maybe that’s how the police do it on this side of the bay, have the call girl scout out a nearby place that isn’t associated with either of them. After all, later that year they started breaking in to peoples’ homes and stealing stuff.
A young hooker talking smack because I screwed up her law enforcement lovin’ would certainly have far reaching effects. Some dude working in the SelectQuote mailroom tried to sell me on a seedy massage parlor once, I think there are plausible routes for this sort of rumor to find its way back to my workplace at the time. Obviously I need to provide my own deterrent.
