Looks like this woman is tired of the homeless camps around that area and she is doing something about. Though it's not right the way she is handling it. Quite a few homes in that area and they can catch on fire.

Fire #5 or #6 this year already broke out yesterday in the Salinas riverbed in Paso Robles most likely due to homeless encampments. Now two families have lost their homes completely destroyed and could have lost their lives due to the fast moving fire flamed by winds yesterday. Another city that does nothing about the homeless encampments. Santa Barbara is just a disaster waiting to happen when the right conditions all come together the next time someone decides to go on a fire starting binge. Neighborhoods could be lost. Good thing we have a great fire department.

The powers that be need to clear out all the homeless camps on public property (train tracks, creeksides, highways, easements, etc.) If not, SB/Montecito, Carp and Goleta are just fires waiting to happen. The police and CHP have been called numerous times about the homeless in the Las Positas offramps areas.........and they do nothing. Tents pop up there almost daily. You cannot socially distance from a panhandler that is right next to your car.
