    Tenzo … You Da Man! Great job. I hope the officer is o.k. — this story reminds us that they have a very dangerous job at all times, even when covered and (thank God in this case) with back-up nearby.

    What’s the over under that 90% of Tenzo’s story is completely made up or a huge exaggeration?

    Well, it WAS on the news…

    I’m feeling a lot of admiration for this officer right now… I’d say finding a backdoor way to express your gratitude for his taking your beating, even though it IS his job, is absolutely appropriate. Shit, I’ll even chip in!

    Yeah… had this same thought. Never actually saw any of the news coverage… and have wondered if, like in the movie True Lies, a piece of news coverage was manipulated to feed a whole back story.

    It was an illegal gambling place.
    Neighbor said they were doing cleaning and he peaked in the window and saw a craps table and a roulette wheel. There is some specualtion as to what went on in the bedrooms.

    Tenzo,

    Imagine how shocked, amazed, vexed, and chagrined I am when my realtor friends call to tell me my old house is featured on the website as some abused fixer-upper. All these years I’ve let you take credit for the rennovations, which, in sum total, is actually only the marble in the hall bathroom and the glass to the master bath. Everything else was my idea and execution. No, there was not a casino running out of the house. It was home to my family of 4. I put $130,000 into its rennovation, above and beyond its $395,000 purchase price, including the 3rd floor deck, kitchen, bathrooms and refinished all the wood. And I have every single bill to account for this truth. How many times did YOU meet with the German Village commission to get the changes approved? There was nothing carved, obscene or otherwise, into the wood floors. I would know; my family and I refinished them all, by our own hand, AFTER we pulled the carpet up that covered every surface.

    As for the full casino nonsense: Where did you find all these hidden items? I would like to see them. There were no hidden cameras, no safe, no hidden gun room, and no touchscreen. Pressure plates? Well, of course, those activated the lasers and robots. Dr. Evil put those in when he was fighting Austin Powers before I owned the house. Are you serious? If having a front door camera (the extent of the technology) because I had two little boys and lived on a busy corner is running a casino, then Vegas has it all wrong. Oh, and you made me replace the front glass because it had a crack in it from age. Doesn’t sound very bulletproof. None of this equipment ever existed in the house. And how, exactly, do you operate a casino behind a Taco Bell and a block from a Blockbuster on the corner of 2 busy streets without the police noticing?
    I’m so terribly disappointed that you’ve taken this misrepresentation this far for attention.

    It was rude to take credit for all my rennovations, but please don’t fabricate complete fantasy to make you look like the good guy who saved this treasure from ill repute. You got a great deal and I lost a fortune. Don’t dishonor us both.

    Did you (or anyone) see this on the news?

    I was kind of paying half attention to the 5 o’clock news last night while doing other things, and there was a story about a cop being assaulted, FWIW.

    You never met our security. ;)

    Say the time two “repairmen” came into our hospital’s main campus in the middle of the afternoon, proceeded to remove a giant working flatscreen from the wall, and walked right out the front door.

    On the personal responsibility note, our department for years worked in a solely dedicated building and I don’t remember having a single theft reported during that time. That changed immediately when we moved into a 6-story building with other departments and zero access control to the building. My guess is the habits of staff accumulated from years in a secure location stayed the same.

    Fair enough. Having worked security for the last year, I think the blame falls to easy on us as shit rolls down.

    Must have been a slow day. Don’t get me wrong, glad they did, but it just seems like a lot of work for one guys phone.

    Unless they assumed that it had a good chance of leading to busting some people with a history of this sort of thing.

    True, and I like the sound of busting thieves!

    You suspect a little munchenhausen like behavior? Could be. I checked the online police reports and there is nothing that matches this crime listed.

    Hey Tenzo – Can you post a link to the report?

    ABC6 has nothing at all on their website. If this story ran on their nightly news, they’ve have something online by now…
