I was walking back from Trader Joes one day. I was behind Carl's Junior near the Smoke Shop at 11 South Milpas when I saw 2 Police Officers speaking with a homeless man. One of the officers looked at me and I said "Good Afternoon Officer." He says to me "Good Afternoon, do you know about the Warming Centers? You should get signed in as it's going to rain overnight." "Thank you" I answered, "but I'm not homeless."   "Oh I'm sorry." the officer said. "It's all right people make that mistake all the time no biggy." I continued on. What a nice thing they were out there helping the homeless get into the warming centers before it rains. It wasn't this way before. We have a decent police chief now. She cares about folks. That is good.

I listen to the Scanner before Sun up till a little after sun down. On most days I hear a lot of calls involving the homeless. Most of them are 415pc Disturbances, Or Fights, yelling, Aggressive Panhandling,484 Shoplifting or petty theft, 647F, Code 40 Drunk in public, 374pc Going to the can in public, Warming-Cooking Fires or Check the Welfare of a subject. Many of the Check the Welfare calls are people who are drunk or cannot care for themselves, or they have fallen out of their wheelchairs, or have gotten sick all over themselves. The City Police handle each call in a professional and compassionate manner. If you don't believe me get yourselves a scanner and observe them yourselves.  I realize that homeless people have nowhere to live and very limited access to bathrooms. I was houseless. Before, if I could not find a place to go to the can, I found a bush, or I buried it in a wooded area. I did not drop a load on the sidewalks in public or in someone's yard. In the Older Days back 20 or so years ago many of the homeless around town were nice, not as demanding, and did not have cooking or warming fires. They had candles for warmth and to read by. Many ate at a shelter, the rescue mission, the Sally, or Dumpster-dived for grub. Some who recycled found cans of food in the dumpsters and garbage cans and when they would miss a meal they would eat the food from one of their found cans. Many of the homeless carried P-38'S.

Things were different back then. There was more respect all the way around. I'm not as stupid as some of you take me for. I have been around the block a few times. Get the hell out of your SUV's and Yuppie mobiles and take a walk in my shoes for a few days. You will have sore feet.  I know there are veterans who are homeless, I know there are Mentally Ill Folks Too and Crippled Folks, the Terminally ill, and the Elderly. These people deserve compassion and get it. Then there are those out there that don't deserve compassion. They are crooks committing criminal acts on others (not just residents but other homeless folks too). A whole new guide book needs to be written up and followed concerning being homeless. There should be no rules that one cannot sleep on public property, but they must respect it by not littering or lighting fires, many of which get out of control. I will rely on the SBSO, SBPD, CHP, SBFD, and AMR, The staff at Cottage Hospital... All of which are doing a great job dealing with the homeless. On occasion, I will continue to voice my opinion as I am entitled. That's my MILPAS UNDERPANTS AND I'M STICKING TO THEM. Here are your scanner reports.

That latest Homicide is sad. I hear a few sometimes and more 415pc Domestics each day on the scanner. If you cannot get along break it up. Better to get away and be single than to get into trouble. Relationships are very hard. Some people don't have what it takes to work things out. At the first sign of abuse from either side get out. If you feel like you're going to lose it and get violent walk away before it's too late...Have a great Week End...Peter, Molly, Belinda, Angel Baby, Pooh Bear, Tom Cat, Clancy, Tomicina, Tiger, Midnight, Merlin, Maxwell, Shadow, FREDDIE!

I was hoping the incident that happened yesterday on San Andres & Victoria , Thursday, a guy running South on San Andres, with a unmarked Police vehicle following, and the guy yelling a bunch of times..... "Just shoot me" .... Police caught up with him, and did a quick take-down.... Then, a couple of other Police vehicles showed up to do the reports, take pictures, and transport the running-guy.... He didn't look like the usual gang member, that I see in that area.

I'm not sure what the hell he was though I heard some of the raids going on I don't report them unless they are barricade incidents or very public @D8VANILLA...Fire extinguishers in vehicles I don't have a car....The closest I came to evacuating was the Thomas Fire after saying I would not leave my Sister called the police and reported me as suicidal and I almost went to the booby hatch, that last time I went there I came home with a girl friend..@7:50 These jerks are bad they don't listen nor care with when you violate me or mine I don't either.

Fire extinguishers in all vehicles. Be part of the solution. Costco has them in the Goleta store.

Earthquake supplies are stored at most schools. Why not declare schools "safe zones" during these crazy fast fires, and have fire hoses stored there. People would know, if they are stuck in their car and can't evacuate on highway 101, Foothill, Hollister, go to "safe zone" nearby and join others in protecting that spot. Hopefully, fire personnel would be there, too. But, in recent very fast fires in N.Cal., firefighters were not fighting the fires in the early hours, they were saving individuals. During that time, we all have to learn how to protect and save each other.

In the Age of Crazy-Fast Fire, we need to rethink our evacuation plan in Santa Barbara.

California's largest wildfire in modern history (2018 RanchFire north of San Fran) was caused by sparks from a hammer (!)--highlighting impossibility of eliminating all ignition sources in high risk zones. Wildfires are inevitable; wildfire *disasters* don't have to be. 1 firefighter was killed in that fire, 410,000 acres burned. Santa Barbara is a high risk zone. NEW rules please, City and County of S.B. declare a State of Emergency (like Edison turning off our power preemptively--at least they are acting/doing something NEW).

Well, that's kind of the point isn't it Roger? I think most over a certain age are very compassionate towards the homeless because it wasn't like it is now with this new crop of disrespectful, and sometimes violent, ones littering our streets. The same approaches do not work anymore. I don't know if it' b/c of the new pharmaceuticals or drugs or what but there were always homeless in NYC where I grew up - never the crop that I see now. Different measures are needed to deal with the new scourge - the same way we dealt with the issue isn't going to work with these new ones.

Parents have had to face awful realities with their teens and adult children who are out of control w/drugs, stealing, fighting and hitting other family members, quitting jobs/refusing to work, etc. These parents have tried getting their children into one treatment center after another. They've been told to practice tough love, and kick their children out (for the safety of the family). Drug addiction is an epidemic, in all states of the U.S. Families are in crisis. Certain drugs create a storm in the brain and massive violence can be sudden, frightening, and overwhelming, and dangerous to nearby humans. Addicts generally don't care if they live anymore. They hate the word "no!". If our police tell these people to not start fires, and they start fires anyway, we all have to make our own conclusions about that.
