Glendale police warn of thieves using distractions to target seniors
By Summer Lin
The Glendale Police Department is warning residents about “distraction thefts” targeting senior citizens.
The thieves typically come up with a ruse in order to approach victims, such as asking for directions or giving them costume jewelry, then remove the victim’s jewelry while giving them a hug, police said Tuesday in a social media post .
The thieves target men and women who are walking alone, then steal their jewelry while leaving them with costume jewelry or another item of little value, authorities said. This is done either by force or by sleight of hand, such as during a hug, without victims knowing they had been robbed.
The thieves often work in teams, with a male driver and a female passenger who commits the theft, police said. The vehicle may contain multiple women or children. The suspects mainly stay in the vehicle and call the victim over to them.
Common locations for such crimes include grocery store parking lots and residential streets.
The Glendale Police Department said it responded to more than 30 distraction thefts in 2021.
Police advised people to walk in groups, pay attention to their surroundings, look out for people or vehicles that may be following them or appear out of place and either avoid wearing jewelry or keep it hidden under clothing.

Foster City To Be Cited for Gander Slander at Goose Massacre Protest

By Michael G. Stogner

Foster City Council does it again. Wow what an exciting Plan.

TODAY: Foster City To Be Cited for Gander Slander at Goose Massacre Protest

FOSTER CITY, Calif. (July 25, 2022)In Defense of Animals’ National Goose Protection Coalition has issued a Gander Slander citation to the Council of Foster City for approving plans to kill up to 100 Canada geese. Outraged Foster City residents and local goose advocates spoke up for Foster City geese during the city council meeting on July 18 to no avail, as reported by NBC. In Defense of Animals and local goose advocates will protest this controversial decision and hand-deliver a Gander Slander citation on Monday, July 25 at city hall. 

“Foster City’s decision to break the necks of up to 100 geese is despicable — and it won’t work,” said Lisa Levinson, Campaigns Director at In Defense of Animals. “New geese will be attracted to plentiful resources in the area, and the killing cycle will start all over again. Nonlethal goose stewardship practices are available now, but the Council of Foster City chose to kill innocent animals instead. That’s why our National Goose Protection Coalition charged the agency with Gander Slander. Compassion must be a guiding principle for decisions related to the wellbeing of geese, who are our wild animal neighbors.”

According to Foster City’s July 18 Canada Goose Population Management Plan Update, the city plans to spend $86,240.00 to kill up to 100 geese, which amounts to $860 per goose, an astronomical waste of taxpayer funds. 

“We urge the council to accept the generous offer from the Animal Protection League of New Jersey, an esteemed member of our coalition that specializes in nonlethal goose-human conflict resolution,” continued Levinson. On July 20, the Animal Protection League of New Jersey offered to pay for a panel of experts in landscape restoration and modern technology to develop an effective non-lethal program to allow human coexistence with wildlife.

“My family, my neighbors, and I are appalled to learn that our representatives are deciding to kill a large number of wildlife against the wishes of the citizens and against the advice of multiple wildlife experts and organizations,” said 25-year Foster City resident Chanah Angelica Kamen in her letter to the Mayor and Council of Foster City on July 20. 

“I was present for the meeting on Monday, and it is clear to me that this council is disregarding a large number of alternative non-lethal methods, as if we are in a time-sensitive crisis. There is no such crisis. My family and I have lived here for so long, and never have we found issue with these innocent animals, who deserve our care, rather than cruelty, for simply existing,” continued Kamen. “We do not want this hasty and wrongful decision bringing shame to our community.”

The Council of Foster City has received opposition emails from over 15,000 In Defense of Animals supporters, urging them to cancel the cruel and ineffective goose massacre. Geese are generally killed in summer when they molt and cannot fly away. It’s also when they have their babies, making them especially vulnerable to heartless and violent trap and kill plans. Foster City plans to kill goose families by breaking their necks. 

Goose massacres are repeated annually because they are a temporary solution. When geese are trapped and killed, new geese repopulate the same area since they are attracted to plentiful resources of food, water, and shelter. Non-lethal strategies such as landscape modifications and changes in human behavior provide a permanent, effective, long-term solution that doesn’t involve animal cruelty.

“What boggles my mind is how long I have had to fight a bunch of city officials to not kill animals for no reason,” said protest organizer Erik Allen. “Geese aren’t raising bacteria levels, look at the results. It’s stagnant Bay water. Too much poop on the ground? Ok, hire people to pick it up so residents don’t have to worry about their kids eating it. Many cities battle reports of sidewalk poop, yet no one thought to kill dogs, not even when they stepped in their poop. Experts on the issue have offered advice, resources, money, and time, but instead Foster City’s council cut corners and gave up because they are so thirsty for the blood of baby animals.” 

In Defense of Animals’ National Goose Protection Coalition issues Gander Slander citations to decision-makers who choose lethal measures when long-term, effective, nonlethal stewardship practices are readily available. The Coalition was formed in 2019 to help concerned citizens stop goose cruelty in their communities.

D.J. Wozniak DSA President, Have you signed the Munir Edais R.I.P. Suspicious Death Petition? If not Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

DSA President

David it was great to see that you managed to get several DSA members to make public comments at yesterdays Board of Supervisor Meeting. It demonstrated to the public that is is possible for your organization to speak publicly about issues you decide are IMPORTANT.

Speaking of Important Issues I’m hoping you and all San Mateo County Law Enforcement Employees will agree with me that the Suspicious Death of a Healthy 32 year old Los Gatos/Monte Sereno Police Officer, a father of two daughters, a son, brother, cousin, and husband who died in Daly City, San Mateo County January 19-21, 2020, would deserve a proper Investigation by San Mateo County Law Enforcement. So far Daly City Police Department and all Daly City Elected Official can’t be bothered.

Please sign the Petition and share it with the DSA.
