If I'm not mistaken, this one of the non-local vagrants who had relocated here because the social benefits were better here than where he came from. Had demonstrated absolute disregard for the law.

Clean out one encampment, they’ll just make another. I’m not sure where everyone expects these people (human beings) to go.

The crazy and the crimminal ones could be incarcerated in mental institutions or prison. That would leave the unfortunate and the lazy that could be dealt with separately.

Incarceration in state mental institutions and control with medication, removal from society and kept where they are no longer a threat to themselves or the public........ which is more expensive, that or this?

So will this homeless encampment be cleaned out now? Will this perpetrator be sent back to Camarillo? So in the last few months in this area someone burned to death trying to cook food and now someone has been stabbed. You think maybe it’s time to clean out all these homeless encampments?!!!

Some bums are scary. Other bums evoke pity. Hard to tell who's who... Pros make bums safer. Money from the state pays pros. More pros, more safer... Bums are expensive. Prison, welfare and state pros. Bums create good jobs... Without scary bums. There will be no jobs for pros. Pros need scary bums...

So many violent crimes caused by transients on the south coast this year. When will we stop accepting this as normal? And these are only the crimes that are reported. I can't imagine how many crimes go unreported everyday. When will people realize this is NOT a housing issue?

A-15: when will we stop electing the same people who keep doing this to us and hiring a police chief who has been 100% ineffectual?
