Can you IMAGINE how many jobs… jobs for Santa Cruz youths could be subsidized with that amount of money?
It’s called “Stalking”

Blaming the campus is an excuse.

In collusion with the UC Regents.
In collusion with out of town property interests.
No matter how much whining the city does about UCSC, it boils down to “Whose gonna pay the tab? now that the city spread it’s legs and allowed the regents to have their way with our community’s jobs and housing.
The old redneck right around here always blamed the students for the change… But THAT change they spoke of was in relation to the political texture of the town in regard to ‘liberalism’ and shit like that.
In reality, much like Sarah Palin and the Energy Sector crowd who came to Alaska at the same time and managed to gerrymander Alaska’s political structure, so too, have the so-called “Progressives” of Santa Cruz.
But there’s been no real social change in any progressive direction, except progressively economically running the city into the ground with it’s ass-in-the air to be pimped to corporate chain stores and typically out-of-town commercial property interests..
I remember the very first HARD CORE “Police Sweep” in Santa Cruz a year or so after Zocolli’s opened for business at their current location. All the action was across the street in front of the Market Deli and United Cigar (a building still on long term lease to that store’s owner) because the Market Deli, despite INCREDIBLE PRESSURE by the city, sold food for food stamps at a time when the only other place downtown was Albertson’s supermarket (at the current location of Trader Joes), which was known for falsely accusing traveler types of being shoplifters and thugging them before the police arrived.
(Eventually that Big Blond Football player bag boy met HIS fate at the hands of a falsely accused UCSC student, who also happened to be a Karate Black Belt and wiped the sidewalk with him outside the store until the police arrived. There IS justice in the world.
During that sweep (has to be late 70s), with a police car rolling down Pacific every 5 or 10 minutes, the Chief of Police used then fledgling Zocolli’s as a Forward Operating Base, staring iut the window watching the operation all day for the two or three days it lasted, an accomplished nothing.
When I see the name Zocolli on the public “Safety” commission board, I think back to those days, before the Code Blue thugs caused their whole crooked SCPD ‘police’ operation to crash.

On the OTHER hand… I ♥ the idea of a ‘congregation’ emergency order because it will, in short order, lead to overview by a state or federal court as to WHY the city of Santa Cruz NEEDS to implement such dramatic suppression of our constitutional right to simply assemble in a public place for no particular reason.
I expect a “Jone”-like decision and a rescinding of that ’emergency order’ to result.
