I'm NOT making this up! Today they made the mistake of leaving Guard Captain Scott Butler in charge and alone at HACLA Headquarters at 2600 Wilshire. Butler knows he is on his way out and is doing everything he can think of to protect his phoney baloney job. Larry Goins and John King (The only ADULTS at HACLA) took a group of big wigs on a dog and pony show to Watts today.

Around 4:15pm this afternoon, Butler, all full of himself as usual, was strutting around the building looking for people to harass when he stumbled upon a live chicken wandering on the sidewalk next to the employee parking lot on Rampart Street. Seeing the chicken, Butler barked into his radio, "Attention! Attention! CODE RED ALPHA ALERT AT CHECK POINT ROMEO!" The poor secretary answered him with, "What is a 'code red alpha alert'?" and Butler responded, "It is a secret police term that only police know and since you aren't the police I can't tell you. [continued below]....

....." Another male voice came on the radio, "What do you want Butler?" Scotty then demanded that all security personnel, "Secure the building and assemble on the Rampart side for a CODE RED ALPHA ALERT." Out of sheer curiosity, the officers left their posts and wandered over to see what all the comotion was.

When they got outside, there was Butler following a brown chicken around the parking lot. Butler barked, "Call LAPD SWAT and the Bomb Squad, we have a situation here!" By this time Sanford Riggs had shown up and asked Butler what the h*ll he was talking about and Butler said, "I have reason to believe that this domesticated fowl may be concealing a small plastic exploding device in its rectum." Disgusted, Sanford sarcastically said, "You evacuated the whole building and want us to call LAPD because you think this chicken has a bomb hidden up it's a**?" Butler blankly stared at him and said, "I heard that Al Qaeda on the loose and we can't take any chances..." and before he could finish, Riggs interuppted him and said, "You never cease to amaze me Scott." to which Scott replied, "Thank you Mr. Riggs...." and Riggs again interuppted him by announcing to the crowd (which by now had swelled to over 200 employees) -"It's 4:30, nothing to see here, let's just call it a day. Everyone can go home now." Poor Sanford turned and as he walked into the building, Scott called out, "Can you ask Montiel when I'm getting my new police cruiser?"

The chicken was last seen wandering south on Rampart towards the Silver Platter.

#3 UPDATE Employee

Well That Explains What Happened!

AUTHOR: Jim Webb Bail Bonds - (USA)

I work on the 4th floor and was coming back from a late lunch when I saw half the employees loitering around outside. I figured it was either a fire drill or Rudy had decided to re-arrange the desks.

Let's just say it was a total CLUSTER f**k. I am surprised someone didn't get hurt in all the madness. Talk about a Chinese Fire Drill! I am dumbfounded how they still let Butler wander around this place with a gun. I'm pretty sure Simmons had the good sense several months ago to seize Butler's bullets. He is our own West Coast version of Barney Fife - and poor Riggs is Andy Taylor trying to keep him under control.

I don't how that poor little chicken found his way to Wilshire and Rampart, but Butler had NO RIGHT to turn it into our own version of "Dr. Strangelove" - I'm glad the chicken was able to escape the long arm of the law at 2600.

We have reached the conclusion that Rudy and Ken keep Butler around for some comedy relief - I can't think of any other reason.
