Discussion Notes[edit]

  • Yesterday, Jake confronted Brandon (the one with the chihuahua, not Brandon Edens), and do-ocraticlaly removed him as is our custom, confiscating his key. Jake has seen Brandon engaged in active thieving behavior. Witnesses speak to the excellence of Jake's removal process, and their own concerns with Brandon.
