Back In Town

Well now that I’m back in town I took a quick look around last night to see if the local precinct had been able to make any progress w/ the tips I left them before I flew out of the city.
All of the gang graffiti for at least a 2 block radius has been cleaned up, and there were no signs of drug dealers at 10:30 PM which is rare in the area I pinpointed. So rare it almost never happens at night.
Within the next few days I’ll get to see how much of a long-term impact this makes (things move fast around here), and see if somebody else tries to take the turf…which in that case, the Tac Force has already been tipped off, so I probably wouldn’t have to prod too much to stop a turf war.
Now I wait…

Uniform Progress

I just posted up some pics of progress on my new uniform so far…FYI bandana fighting is a real self-defense/street fighting technique that I decided it might be prudent to take back up. If you wanna find out more, Google it and buy a book or somethin.
There are elbow pads underneath the jacket, and I’m wearin re-inforced adjustable kneepads. Why? Because rollerblades will be a future source of mobility. I always use wheels when I can. I don’t drive. The construction of the whole uniform makes a little more sense now, huh?
The vest unzips down the front, and has 2 cargo pockets. I only have 1 small utility pouch attached to the belt right now, which conceals nicely.
You can’t really see my backpack in any of the pics, but it’s waterproof and lightweight. This carries my water and literature, also any special supplies I might need for the night.
The Ankh (dubbed the X-Ankh) stands for the ancient key of Life (and Death). True Liberation can only come from knowledge, since you can only work with what you know. If you didn’t know you could walk, how could you make it to work without a wheelchair? But I’m goin on and on…
The edges of the X-Ankh glow in the dark after being exposed to lite for at least 60 seconds.
I’m workin on the rollerblades.

Workin On New Patrol Uniform

Well since it’s been a while since I’ve been out on patrol in any kind of costume, I started a new one from scratch. I got a lotta ideas in my head…I’ll post pics when I get some real progress goin with that.
Meanwhile my regular clandestine activities will continue. A lot of which I’m loathe to speak about much over somethin like Myspace and for good reason. The people I deal with ain’t what you would call model citizens. My “Secret Identity” has to do a lot of the “dirty work”. The police can only do so much unless you give them somethin in a lot of cases in the neighborhoods I’ve lived in. So at least I got SOME “help”…it’s like washin dishes and takin out the trash. SOMEbodys gotta do it *shrug*
The higher the risk, the more careful I gotta be of course. You pick your battles ya know? >:D
