Nowhere Safe

posted by on October 6 at 12:36 PM

And what happened here?

Six people were found dead early Monday morning inside an exclusive community in Porter Ranch, [CA].

Police say the case appears to be a murder-suicide, although it is unclear how the victims died. Officials have said a gun was involved.

The bodies were discovered around 7 a.m. inside the home on Como Lane, located in an exclusive gated community in the northwest San Fernando Valley, according to LAPD officer Sara Faden.

And what is a gated community?

In its modern form, a gated community is a form of residential community containing controlled entrances for pedestrians, bicycles, and automobiles, and sometimes characterised by a closed perimeter of walls and fences… [G]ated communities provide genuine security to the upper class as well as expatriates.

I like how they say "a gun was involved". Like they aren't sure how it was used or something.

"Hey Jim, there's a gun on the floor and a bunch of dead bodies, what do you think happened?"

"Dunno Bill, maybe they hit each other with it."

Hmm. Surely this crime was committed by the "hired help" from OUTSIDE the community. Yes, that's what happened. Case closed.

Nothing to be alarmed about. I'm sure it;s just Phil Spector and Robert Blake keeping the streets of Porter Ranch safe from golddiggers.

Dachau was a gated community.
