Entire Block in Santa Monica Loses Mail Service Due to Alleged Attacks on Letter Carriers


“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”
So goes the postal creed but now a new delay may have been found
For many years if postal carriers despite their dog spray were by dogs attacked
The resident would receive a notice that the letter carrier would not be coming back
But an alleged danger has erupted to cut off delivery of mail for an entire block
And its location should come as a complete shock
Not a street in Chicago where drug wars too often reign
And bullets strike day and night like heavy squalls of rain
No this street is located in the Golden State and not in Feces City or in the crime ridden areas of L.A.
No the street is the 1300 block of 14th Street in Santa Monica where several alleged attacks by a broomstick have come into play
The only reported attack was by an attacker known to the police and to the victim who will not charges press
Makes one wonder whether the Post Office overreacted when mail delivery they chose to suppress
Letter carriers must never be exposed to human or animal attack while delivering the mail
Here the exercise of judgment the Post Office has failed
If the perpetrator were to strike again he would know arrest and jail would be sure
A follow up chat by the Santa Monica Police would an absence of future acts insure
If the residents of the 1300 block have to the post office drive each day
Much harder for the Green New Dealers the increase in carbon emissions allay
If letter service to an entire block is suspended will the letter carriers be able earlier leave
Or suffer less stress in delivery deadlines to be able to achieve?
