BECKY: Not true. The City's mission statement on homelessness says the goal of the City is to house everyone. However, the City has pledged to assist vulnerable populations first.
There is a rather large difference between the city finding housing for everybody and the goal of the city being to house everybody.

Could you please give us a link to that mission statement?

But I thought you said SC was cold and heartless and only wanted your bums to go away...

As has already been stated, having a goal is not the same as having responsibility for that goal. I have a goal of world peace. Doesn't mean I'm responsible for world peace.

Really? Right-wing?
"conservatives build the prisons. cheney's company halley-burton builds most, and wackenhut tends to administrate them. both are conservative run companies. they lock up non violent offenders with the violent ones. conservatives are the ones who designed and run the prisons."

"it is all the fault of the conservatives."

Yeah, real right-wing conservative vocab there.
Not to mention that "that" loweroceanlocal, aka yourself, makes no mention of sexual orientation or homophobia in the entire 81 post thread. Read for yourself: http://www.topix.com/forum/city/santa-cruz-ca...

So what? Your IP was Los Gatos for a while, it changed to Boulder Creek before you moved. It's happened before.
Stop pointing fingers. "That person" is you.
Wow...busted!

Did any of you notice that the police and SENTINEL are not saying "60 citations" anymore, but now it's 20? Could it be that the police LIED to the public when they said they had over 60 citations?
Apparently.
Also, the SENTINEL continues its smear by saying that the couple were "destroying trees, carrying open containers, bathing in a fountain" when the facts of these instances are:
1. DELEON was cited for HURTING THE GRASS when he slept on it
2. ANNA (who does not drink) was cited ONCE for an "open container" when she camped near an empty beer can
3. ANNA was cited for 'bathing in a fountain" when she RINSED HER HANDS in the Town Clock fountain.
This is a witch hunt. It is a huge waste of time and money all paid for with taxpayer dollars.
It is the BARISONE's racking up the bucks for their FRENCH RIVIERA second home at the expense of a miserable, downtrodden homeless couple.
Even if the City wins, they will accomplish nothing.
23 witnesses? HOW MANY are on the city payroll and will be missing REAL WORK while testifying?
lets remind them how easy it is to become destitute-- it can happen to anyone.
