BondJamesBond Jul 27, 2018 08:06 AM Threatening Subject on State Street I have walked State St for many years on my lunch hour. The area between Cota and Gutierrez is like running a gauntlet of threatening and disgusting vagrants, even in broad daylight. Since the Ventura murder, if someone threatens you, believe them! Surely, if law enforcement just enforced existing laws on the books, this problem would be solved or at least lessened. It's only about 50 people, many of them from out of town. Rents/property values on State St. are comparable to other Calif. coastal communities.
