City Council continues to defy the demands of the Community regarding police defunding to curb police violence, discrimination, homeless harassment, and overspending.  It has NOTHING on its agenda regarding shifting funds to non-violent alternatives.  Item #20 attempts to veto its own Commission report defending the shelter-in-place needs of van-dwellers on Olive St. 

The D.A. and the SCPD have still not dropped inflated and groundless charges against MARTY MIRABEL (“PIRATE”) for defending his friend Ben’s vehicular home from a massive police raid in violation of CDC “shelter-in-place” guidelines.   After a gang of nearly a dozen officers surrounded him and slammed Marty to the ground, police continue to cite and harass Ben in spite of the CDC requirements and the Martin v. Boise decision prohibiting such official terrorism.

While six motels have reportedly  been funded to assist some of the vulnerable houseless, many more remain half-empty.  There are no indoor areas set aside for the toxic air quality alerts, the smoke danger, and cooling functions–particularly impactful of those outside, and of the broader community–given the COVID-19 pandemic.  Dangerous COVID-19 vulnerable group shelters at the Vet’s Hall, Armory, “Housing Mumblings” Paul Lee Loft, and Laurel St. continue to be the main “go to” for police”  as a warehousing “alternative” when they threaten the visually “undesireable” outdoor camps. 

Those camps–in the Pogonip, along and under Hiway 1, along the levee, continue to be starved of resources like porapotties, wash stations, and trash pick-up’s.  City Manager Martin Bernal’s Bumbuster Police, Rangers, and Public Works crews seem to be removing or reducing previous COVID-19 “emergency” accommodations in defiance of public health needs.   Encampments along the San Lorenzo pathway near the Broadway bridge and along Hiway 1 at River St. have multiplied exponentially after the City and County created more refugees with their show-encampment in the Benchlands, running off the larger camp that was there in a repetition of earlier homeless dispersals.  Food to those in the few hotels made available is reportedly being cut back.

No indication that vendors on Beach St. have been invited to resume their family-sustaining sidewalk businesses down near the Boardwalk.
