I expect that the Real Reality Check is going to be published a lot more by GTW. Obviously Greg Archer loves his muck raking.
Video Expose on Clean Team Santa Cruz Silenced by threats
written by Real Reality Check, May 15, 2013
There was a video on youtube exposing a Clean Team action at Carbonara Creek. A CT member was seen poking at homeless man with a stick, swearing and making threats. Other CT members are heard laughing with one also referring to the homeless as "parasites."
The video has now been set to private because the discussion on SC Patch reportedly resulted in threats.
Is this really what Santa Cruz is coming to? Threats not only on homeless people but on journalists who film such events?
Did anyone catch the YouTube video of a SC Clean Team member bullying

a sleeping homeless dude? He swears at the guy, pokes him with a cleanup tool, tells him he has friends that want to #$@# him up. Another man can be heard calling them (homeless guys) "parasites." The video ends with the Clean Team member wanting to throw water on the homeless guy.
This is Clean Team Santa Cruz, a kissing cousin to Take Back Santa Cruz.
It's strange how the reality of how these groups operate don't seem to mesh up with the carefully crafted press releases and photo opportunities being happily repeated by local media.
