The mayor of one of the richest areas in the United States was caught on tape throwing a bag of dog sh*t into his neighbors yard.
San Marino resident Philip Lao said he was about to go on a walk with his wife Saturday evening when he saw a small bag full of dog poop outside his home on Euston Road, according to the Pasadena Star-News. Lao reviewed his home surveillance cameras and says he recognized Dennis Kneier, mayor of the San Gabriel Valley city, as the poop-thrower.
Video shows Kneier holding a briefcase in one hand and flinging the offending bag into the vicinity of Laos home with the other. Lao filed a report but isnt pressing charges, but San Marino police are investigating anyway, saying the bag appeared to have been intentionally placed in the walkway entrance.
According to Lao, the mayor was upset with him for placing a No poop zone sign outside of his home, as well as for his opposition to a proposed dog park at nearby Lacy Park. Kneier has partially admitted this, saying: I personally dont like the sign, but I cant tell him to take it down.
The video shows Kneiers wife, Liz, walking a few steps ahead of him then saying something to him and pointing to the driveway where Kneier left the bag of poop. But Kneier sent Lao a letter apologizing Monday, framing the story a bit differently by saying he noticed a bag of dog waste in your west parkway near the lamp post. He continued:
Rather than leave it or dispose of it properly, I placed it on your side walkway. This was a mistake, for which I apologize. It wont happen again.
Kneier claims he didnt think about flicking the bag, saying: It was not premeditated. Nobody put a gun to my head and said put it down there. Lao isnt buying Kneiers explanation, according to KTLA, and says hell take his complaints to the regular City Council meeting Wednesday.
He is compounding the situation by lying about how this occurred, Lao said.
Just so were clear, this happened in what Forbes calls the 63rd most expensive zip code in the country to live in. Apparently even the rich get sh*t on in some ways. See the offending video below: (video at site)
Liberal NIMBY’s gone loco!
The mayor is full of it.
If he had been a Republican it would have been in the first paragraph...
San Marino. Where the fictional family of Steve Martin’s Father of the Bride lived.
wonder what his stance on global warming is....
The mayor goes with his wife to throw dog crap? He couldn’t take her to dinner?
“Come on honey, let’s go throw a bag of dog s**t on the neighbor’s sidewalk!”
“Oh Philip! You romantic scamp!”
It’s called giving your constituents a piece of your mind.
Weird. At 13 his wife points out to the spot where he immediately throws it. There is a weird hiccup in the film immediately after four, so it is hard to tell if he was walking in with the bag in hand. It looks like he is.
If I recall correctly, San Marino is, or was, the headquarters of the John Birch Society.
After it moved from Belmont, Massachusetts.
I didn’t know that... are you saying hiz honor might be a Republican? I kinda doubt that... If he was Republican the New York Times would have picked up the story - along with ABC, CBS, and NBC.
Turns out San Marino was the West Coast office and Belmont the headquarters, but they closed them both in 1989 and opened up a new HQ in Appleton, Wisconsin.
