• SAPD – Stop Abusing People’s D

    The nurses have been here all week with the tent. Approximately from 7am to 5pm, they try to help but the tent is not the way to speak about mental problems if there’s no privacy. What happened to clients confidentiality. It would be best for a office trailer or a semi permanent structure like the bus station.

    It is very nice to see this new Board of Supervisors take on this problem. Doesn’t say much for the lack of action by the prior Board.

    • Smeagel4T

      You mean only after the new board was dragged out into the sunlight and embarrassed by it?

      • Shirley L. Grindle

        You’re probably right, but the old Board would still have ignored this problem.

        • David Zenger

          The “old Board?” You mean like Nelson and Spitzer, two of the stars of this article?

          No shame, no gain.

    It’s going to take more that a $99 blue tent. Right now Nelson and Spitzer are wallowing in the PR opportunity to swoop in and respond to Norberto’s public outing. They are in full on damage control mode. It is no secret that the BOS did not care about the Civic Center Homeless and told staff to look the other way. Now it’s theater time and they are rolling out the “show”. Let’s see what is sustained and what meaningful resources are devoted to targeting this issue.

    I’m noticing a “bigger picture” aspect to this. Perhaps there should be some kind of law or something (not really sure what) that causes all the homeless in all municipalities across the country to congregate at the seat of government for the municipality. And then preferably the elected officials’ offices and chambers need to be on opposite sides of the homeless congregation area from the parking lot for the elected officials.

    OC Civic Center Crisis? = Vote Republican!!!

    This is what you get with absolute power supported by professionals who cannot manage PUBLIC programs.

    They are horrible at it.

    It doesn’t matter which EA Ace (or family member) they appoint – they cannot serve, address, support or fix the breakdown in health and human services at the wealthiest Civic Center in the Country.

    They are good at finding profit and tax dollars to stuff in their own pocket.

    End of Story.

    Amazing what a little bad publicity can do.
