An emergency legislative meeting called??? Wow, big deal won't do a bit of good unless the Hayward Police dept. is properly educated or want to bother with genuine reports of activity at a residential home with all ear-marks to a big fencing operation.....and occuring over a period of probably 7 to 8 years...so in the meanwhile, group gets more sophisticated, and who knows maybe even internal police connections and advice to stay under the radar...seems maybe now could have graduated to a storage facility or maybe a storefront or warehouse setup.....oh well, some folks are simply above the law, or crooks get smarter....so after several futile attempts to alert law enforcement with substantial information we give up....
