It's usually not a good idea to fire a gun while stumbling drunkenly down a Lodi street.

That allegation is what landed 21-year-old Derek Richard Azevedo behind bars Sunday morning after police found him on Harney Lane.

    To T & C: I keep reading your posts about all the vagrants, drunks, and loiters as well as the illegal narcotic distribution sales network across from 10 S Main street. Why should any police officer leave the peace and quiet of the Police admin building to deal with these reprobates? Why should patrol cars pull away from the donut stands when they can munch on their snacks and be left alone? I'll ask a GOB friend to call Jerry, Larry or King "legumes" Bob.

    There's a VERY GOOD REASON drunks are LOITERING "ACROSS" the street from 10 S. Main Strett EVERY DAY! If they're LOITERING ACROSS from 10 S. Main street "They are placing their 40 ounce beers at 10 S. Main Street so they do not have "Open Containers" where they are standing! When they are LOITERING at 10 S. Main Street, their 40 Ounce Beer is placed by the Cherry plant fence! You see they are playing "Cat and Mouse" with the Police and getting away with drinking in public, knowing LPD is just too pre-occupied to deal with the SEVEN DAY A WEEK Loitering and drinking between Pine and Oak Street. We may be poor and choose to live in these old hotels, but we don't like drunks on our street seven days a week! Bottom line is we can do nothing! After the non-emergency LPD# 333-7974 goes home, 911 will not respond because they say "Drinking in public" is "Not an Emergency"! People in support of the homeless think they NEED our help! Sorry but they are very "SAVVY as to how to get around the law and drink in public!
