Dear Mr. Hughes,

Thank you for your detailed response.

I strongly urge you to read this letter in full and to pass it along. I promise you, I'm the most serious person you'll ever meet, no matter how long you go on.

This pandemic won't last forever, but there are a bunch of local folks who will wish it did.

One thing is certain: post-pandemic, there will be no bigger story in the country than the organized cover-up of dozens of homeless murders.

Apparently, hit and run deaths aren't even considered crimes around here.

Even a child-like understanding of mathematics across population density will illuminate the issue here, not that I think for one moment that your office is ignorant of it. You MUST know what's rolling downhill toward you.

San Francisco, known garden spot for the homeless, had 135 deaths among their 2019 homeless population, estimated by most at over 10,000. I used the smallest pop. estimation I could find (8,011) to arrive at their death rate of 1.68. Interestingly, both San Diego (pop. 8,102) and Los Angeles county (58,936) have death rates within a tenth of a point of San Francisco's. From 1.65 to 1.77.

Then there is Ventura County, fully three times deadlier for the homeless. 4.91%.

Under San Francisco conditions, we would have had 28 deaths. We had 82.

82 of us died last year, out of a population of 1,662.

I extrapolated that if we had the highest rate of every known cause of death in the country, black lung disease, syphilis, all of them, we would be at 42 deaths.

So we have at least 40 unexplained deaths, among a community where everyone knows at least five LIVING people who have been hit by cars or trucks. The most common report from the scenes of the crimes? Laughter. That's what we hear.

Sometimes they'll get out of their cars and throw money on top of us.

They play chicken with us, in double-cab pickups mostly, while we're walking around town. This is what your constituents do in their spare time, the kind of thing that occupies their thoughts.

These are what are known as 'tells'.

You'll need to adjust your understanding of human depravity in order to prosecute these cases.

The eyes of the world will soon be on V.C. for this issue, and they will be both enraged and confused.

It's a twisted tale of privilege and boredom and the darknet, but the MUCH bigger story is the cover-up by the Star and local governments not to warn us of our...um...unusually high risk.

This hilarious conspiracy of silence from the perps goes on today, although other local outlets have picked up the story.


I'm just going to scream this investigation into motion using every known marketing method at my disposal, while the perps are stuck in quicksand due to the virus. They are going to be under glass, for public perusal.

And you can bet my next appearance at Oxnard City Council will include a camera from Dateline or the like. Here's how the last one went:


When I came here, I wrote for months about the wonderful folks of Ventura County, until the overtly hostile actions of the city of Oxnard and the VCStar forced me to change tack. I'll soon be back to writing about the wonderful folks of this county, in part to protect them from all the horrifying publicity heading their way. 'City of Hate', 'Murder County', that kind of thing.

I don't know why Flynn is campaigning when he should be changing his identity and getting out of town.

Now, I promise I'll never stop until everyone is paid in full, and you may take me at my word.

This is God's county and God's country, and this simply will not stand.

Would be happy to discuss this, or the jackbooted-thug-like actions of some local police toward helpless, suffering human beings (my next focus) anytime. Can't have dirty cops around here.

They gotta go, but uprooting them will be easier by a long way. I'll just publish their names and their crimes, every single one, in excruciating detail, in my local paper, coming soon.

One thing at a time, I guess, and everything in its time.

Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
