So says the flabby fraud himself.

DBS has been lying about Robert Norse for years, and he has been stalking Becky for even longer.

Tell us, DBS, why did you vandalize Becky's property?

Notice how DBS, a spoiled trust fund baby, does not provide any evidence for his baseless claims.

DBS only provides DEMANDS, and they are demands that usually cost us the taxpayers.

I have been subsidizing DBS's son's education for YEARS, and I am not complaining.

Unfortunately HUFF doesn't have many friends in the community. When is your obese fruitcake of a sister, Pat going to join you in the ranks of the homeless?

John is "technically" not homeless because he is illegally hiding in Phatty's apartment.

BWAAAA HAAAAA HAAAAAA!!!

Not a single strand of truth in that lame excuse for a post.

No wonder you've been unemployable since getting fired 21 years ago.

Readers have noticed how you haven't been able to provide any evidence for your baseless claim that DBS has a trust fund, including your denial of Robert Kahn's trust, going so far as to allege DBS father's investment in the lumber industry when in fact it was Stephen Kahn who grew wealthy in that manner.

Between the testimony of the City's Public Safety Task Force, the Homeless Census & Survey 2013, The City's Homelessness Study Session or data provided by the Santa Cruz County Sheriff re: recidivism & incarceration, it all shows that HUFF has been right all along and that the beliefs held & promoted by the PSTF, Take Back Santa Cruz, Councilmembers Comstock & Judge Ariadne Symons are completely wrong.

Homelessness in Santa Cruz County represents 1.3% of our total population. This is in line with a 1 - 3% homeless rate experienced by cities across our nation.

So we don't have "more than our share."
72% last had housing in SC County.

With only 18% of our homeless pop. sheltered, our services rank among the worst in the nation. Last year, the region ranked 400th out of 425 in the percentage of its homeless population that was sheltered, according HUD data -- one notch above the U.S. Virgin Islands. Hardly a homeless "magnet."
So no, MOST homeless people are NOT moving from outside of Santa Cruz here for our "wonderful" services. They were living here already and our services are not at all "generous."

Data also reveal that homeless people do NOT statistically represent a safety risk to housed people. The VAST majority of "crimes" they are cited or arrested for are camping, sleeping, having an open container, being in a park after hours, dog on the mall after dark, etc. These "crimes" do not truly impact in any way the assault, burglary, car-jacking, or rape rate.

And statistics do NOT show that predatory people are coming from outside of Santa Cruz to prey on our community. 17 out of the 18 people currently charged with murder are locals.

Finally, the Sheriff's report that the length of sentence has no effect on recidivisms. This means that we can greatly shorten sentences w/o any negative effect on public safety. We can allieve overcrowding AND reduce costs.

And after John Colby became homeless, his sister FAT PAT's STD infections dropped.
