The the, the last five years I have been documenting everything I possibly can. And today I’m gonna be coming down to the Sheriff’s department and I’m going to simply ask for help. 

Mr. Horch ,this is his citizen of Vancouver. And I have been trying to receive some help due to being a vulnerable adult, not by choice, but by the, uh, RCW and the statue of, uh, Washington 74.34. 
Um, I, I’m not the one that came up with the laws and it’s been five years now. And, uh, you had called me and told me to quit calling and hung up on me. And now that I see that you’re running for the sheriff, well, I’m sorry, sir, but, um, that kind of behavior, and to actually treat a citizen the way that you did when I was calling for help.

And so, um, when someone has been the victim, that’s not something that they choose. And so, because of whatever the reasoning is of what you’ve done to me, and the lack of even wanting to help a citizen who’s simply is just trying to live their life, uh, to whatever extent that is, and not be used or neglected or abandoned and, and, uh, to be treated equally like everyone else.
So, um, the, the, the last five years I have been documenting everything I possibly can. And today I’m gonna be coming down to the Sheriff’s department and I’m going to simply ask for help. I need to have a police report done because I’ve been refused, but I don’t know how many different officers.
