Also I wanted to add. Thankfully him and his mother do not live anywhere near Santa Barbara, we do not have to worry about him. It makes me sad as I met him when he was clean. He was my favorite of my husband's kids. Now his brain is completely destroyed from the drugs. He is insane, there is no one home in his brain if you try to talk with him. He is homeless and in and out of jail. Refuses any help to get clean. He totally succumbs to the demons of heroine and meth.

A thought to contemplate. My husband's x wife is severely co-dependant. She created a monster with their middle son. He is a heroine and meth addict. I will not bore you with all the crimes and destruction he has done and she has turned a blind eye to and enabled him to be this monster. Re: fires of the homeless. Said son was doing heroine in the house, passed out from his high and burned the house down. You are right that it is too warm to need a fire. They could be passing out from their drug use and not putting out the fire before they pass out. Curse drugs and their destruction of people, families and communities.

Put these compensation packages on the pyromaniac "homeless" tab, because we are tried of paying this much money every year just so our fire department can spend their very expensive time putting out vagrant camp fires. James P Mccoy Fire Batt Chief

When evaluating claims like this, you should consider the source, which is neither transparent, nor California.

"Transparent California" is just one of the many names used by the tax-exempt "free-market think tank" Nevada Policy Research Institute (NPRI). NPRI refuses to divulge its own funding sources, stating, “NPRI respects the privacy of our donors, which includes the amount of a donor’s gift”.

NPRI's primary funding source, as determined by The Conservative Transparency Project, is Donors Capital Fund, a dark-money source of funding for conservative groups. Its donors also include The Cato Institute, co-founded by the Koch brothers, and organizations affiliated with the climate change denial movement.

NPRI spends 75% of its revenue on six-figure salaries and benefits. Its goal is to undermine support for employee unions nationwide, thereby decreasing salaries and increasing corporate profits.

I don’t remember this many “encampment” fires even as little as 5 years ago. The recent LA takeover of Santa Barbara has really lead to an increase in crime and homelessness. Sigh.

I second that Roger! Thinking of squatting myself and saving $3K a month. I have had my pad picked out for a couple years and I still see no issues. Lol lights and water still on too.
