Im surprised no one has mentioned drums(as in drumming circle) as a source of annoyance. Where are the drummers when you need them? Or, how about a recording of a dripping faucet....that works for me!

Good job, SCPD, keep it up.

I'm sure Johnson or Norse will be in Topix shortly about how this is torture under the Geneva Convention or some such.

I hope the judges don't toss out the citations the SCPD is issuing. These folks at city hall don't want to be sheltered; they want to revoke the camping ban.

Imagine what Santa Cruz would look like if that were to happen.

It's about time. Bumfest 2010 wore out its welcome over a month ago. My wife, far more tolerant and compassionate than I, thinks that the protesters made a better case for continuing the camping ban than ending it. Thank you, HUFF.

I have noticed that in the Senile, the peace camp has become the so called peace camp. The verdict is in; another Robert Norse/Becky Johnson production down in flames.

Maybe Chris Doyon and the other out-of-area freeloaders will go home.

When they started at the courthouse, everyone doing county business got to see what these bums were really about. Now everyone going down to city hall gets to see what these bums are like. Next week maybe they can move to the metro station. The funny part is that the local libs, that haven't seen for themselves what these bums are really like (fighting, yelling profanaties at everyone, trashing the place, long long list) are still sympathetic towards the scum bags. Yet the libs that have actually seen the bums antics have changed their mind and finally are beginning to see what a liberal progressive attitude will become......Santa Cruz is a haven for scum bags because of the liberal attitude. So, just move the protest every month until everyone sees for themselves what this town is becoming. A sanctuary for scum.

If someone would compile a tape of Becky Johnson's recorded interviews and other rants, then play that over the loudspeakers on an endless loop, the "protesters" would be gone in under an hour.

All you have to do is close the Coral St Shelter and this nightmare will end. Is it just too obvious where all of the problems stem from? The people running Coral are the worst form of enablers and should be thrown out on their collective backsides.
