News trucks started appearing on Garland Street as early as Tuesday morning, in anticipation of the controversial near-release of violent rapist, Lawrence Joseph Brown. The generator noise and lack of parking was of lesser worry to the neighbors than why the trucks were there.
Porter is the father of three girls and the family lives a few blocks from 13071 Red Hill Ave. in Tustin, the supposed residence home of Brown, following his release.
He was one of numerous neighbors coming out of their house, gathering on the sidewalk, discussing the “circus” atmosphere, including the nine news trucks parked along the street and the constant flow of cars stopping in front of the house. “[The traffic] only gets like this around Christmas, but that's because people come to see the Christmas lights,” said one neighbor, who's a teacher in the area and lives across the street from the house of interest.
