    “Homelessness Is Not a Crime
    October 17, 2017

    “Kala Ghooray, a medical student at UC Irvine, argues that we should not treat homeless as criminals but rather we need a humane approach to address the public health crisis in the Santa Ana Civic Center”.

    JUST A FEW YEARS (MAYBE 10) AGO THE CIVIC CENTER DID NOT LOOK LIKE THAT, I REMEMBER WALKING THROUGH IT AND THERE WERE NO TENTS AT ALL IN IT.

    “NO JOB GROWTH AND NO HOUSING IN THE AREA FOR MORE THAN TEN YEARS SO WHAT IS THE HOLDUP WITH SPENDING THE INTENDED MONIES FOR INSTEAD OF MAKING THE PEOPLE SUFFER MORE”. 53,000 HOMELESS IN ORANGE COUNTY.

    “The Rev. Karen Maurer, executive director of BCIS, said homeless people are going to use libraries, parks and other public facilities because “they know where to go when it’s cold or when it’s hot,” and which places offer internet. She also pointed out the problem isn’t unique to Huntington Beach and cities all over the region are experiencing the same thing.

    Additionally, an annual police report shows 4,629 total citywide crimes for 2014, a decrease from 5,296 in 2013. In 2015 the number of crimes jumped to slightly higher than 2013, with 5,362 total crimes in the city”.

    BCIS supporters say crime, drug use and homelessness have increased throughout the city and it’s unfair to blame the center for the rise.

    Can you prove this? Where is the solid proof?

    Question: Why does it have to be a religiously affiliated organization in order to get help from these people, there are people out there that have no faith at all and don’t follow religious edicts because it is not required to be religious or faith based. Stop using religions and faith as recruiting tools.

    I strongly oppose proselytizing religion, as some of the social assistance private and religiously oriented agencies do by distribution of literature or mandating the attendance in religious services. However for city government to demand the closure of a religiously oriented social assistant agency without establishing a non religious equal alternative offering the same services is sadistic, bigoted, harmful to health, and a serious detriment to one solution of poverty. The white-privileged, republican dominated city council must learn that the community has a large population of non-white, impoverished human beings whose access to health and nutrition are covered by such free clinics, owned by religious organizations or not.
