Our city has turned into a trash dump. Have you looked at the places by the DMV next to the highway or along the railroad tracks or the offramp to Garden Street lately? Trash everywhere. Disgraceful. Or how about the tents in Almeda Park? We the taxpayers of the City of Santa Barbara are paying for all of these people to live like this and to keep rescuing these people from their own destructive ways (setting fires, drug overdoses etc). When do we say enough is enough already.

Well, we can all thank the Martin vs. Boise ruling. Classic example of when people who are esconsed from regular society makes laws that govern those living in regular society.

I mostly agree Rypert.

That case was decided on / about a complete absence of plausible alternatives for where the folks could be. Imho, we have nothing like an absence of plausible alternatives in our county/region that would result if we enforce laws in SB beaches and parks.

I do 100% agree that the Boise case is having strong impact. Mostly because a culture of cowardice / full risk-avoidance by local govt bureaucrats and hot potato with a super-tough issue for politicians. Our city would win a case if challenged.... well, maybe not, as our city attorney seems to be unable to out-argue a mayonnaise jar, but in theory not a tough sell on the plausible alternatives landscape.

Also, you are right in that the well-meaning but devastatingly destructive efforts of many "homeless rights" advocates are/were emboldened by that decision.

COAST - what would you do if a homeless person screamed at your kid? Beat him up? You'd fight a mentally ill person? Real tough guy. I bet the other inmates would be super proud of you for going to jail for assaulting a crazy homeless person.

I think every college kid in town should grab a tent, grab their friends and go camp there, in fact at every beach. Have bonfires, shoot off some fireworks etc... Let’s go dig some pits on West Beach, bring your cooler and propane tanks! Let’s camp. What would LE do about that? Everyone can claim to be homeless. Would different rules apply?

If some vagrant screamed at my kid at the skate park, I would not call the cops- When did men turn into -------------?

Not visible from Meigs/Shoreline, but tents popped up there a few days ago. Police told neighbors that they can't / won't take action. Don't know who makes that decision, but that's what I meant when I said "we started allowing" camping a few days ago.

One is the same well-know, SuPeR problematic person (with multiple prior incidents) that had the free beach-front site next to the skate park for the last ~6 months. My friends kid was screamed at and (he said) thought he would be assaulted at the skate park. Said he would never go back. No one cared. It's an absolute disgrace.

You can probably guess this from my other posts, but in my opinion we need to find out what bureaucrats or council people are deciding not to enforce our laws and make sure they don't work for us any more.

Awesome! We started allowing camping in that park just a few days ago, and the results are already rolling in! Great job City Council and SBPD. Immediate results!

Let me venture to guess... another "houseless neighbor" gone wild? Asking for a community under siege from "houseless neighbors" and their antics.

My take on this would be: If you planned an "outing" today would NOT be the day to "Visit" La Mesa Park. At least till things "Calm down"?
