A LITTLE MORE ACCOUNTABILITY, A LITTLE LESS ENABLING
By Max R. Weller
It was right at 3:45PM yesterday, just a few minutes after one of the inebriated couples (white male pedophile and Native American woman) had left this spot in the 4900 block of N. Broadway — where as many as five bums at a time have been trespassing for the past month — and I watched from the corner of U.S. 36 as a Boulder County Sheriff’s Office deputy rolled up on the scene. There was only one bum there at that point, a black man I’d never seen before, but the deputy ran his name to check for outstanding warrants and then told him to move along. He skedaddled on down the sidewalk, and then sat down in front of Boulder Shelter for the Homeless (he might be one of the Summer Bed program or First Step/Transition program layabouts).
BRAVO! Thank you, BCSO. There ought to be daily visits from law enforcement officers at Drunkards’ Wallow until ALL of the pickled idjits get the message . . .
BTW, I made $139 and change in the two hours I played the role of humble beggar at N. Broadway & U.S. 36, including a brand new $100 bill from a younger man driving an older car:
Designed to frustrate counterfeiters.
I now have a total of $220 in my coffee jar savings, and my semiannual trip to Walmart over in Longmont will happen shortly, so this is most welcome. This bonanza makes up for the cash donations I’ve lost because of the drunks, whose presence has discouraged most business owners, workers, and residents of Dakota Ridge from their typical generosity to me. NOBODY wants to be harassed for money, and that’s what the parasites would do if they saw anyone handing me cash as I’m sitting on the wall in front of the Mexican restaurant, reading a book or simply watching the world go by.
Read Boulder homeless advocates get boost from feds’ stance against camping bans in the Daily Camera. My online comment following this story is copied below:
It’s a court filing in a case yet to be decided, NOT a ruling by the court. I can understand that poorly educated homeless people may not know the difference, but Boulder, CO’s “homeless advocates” certainly should.
Maybe they do know the difference, and are just trying — once again — to muddy the waters in re homelessness. Shame, shame on them! Since they started aggressively advocating for transients here, the public backlash (which I support, in general) has greatly increased.
Transients are their own worst enemies, and the advocates for them are not helping one bit.
There’s ONE MORE THING you should have for free: A bus ticket on RTD back to Denver!
Also read this report from the Times-Call, which should make you chuckle: Longmont searches in vain for homeless man appointed to housing authority board. In fact, Josh Canvasser is currently incarcerated in Boulder County Jail, charged with four felonies and two misdemeanors related to illegal drugs. Scroll down to pages 31 and 32 in the Boulder County Jail Listing to see for yourself.
That’s all for now. Have a good weekend!
