Bus ’em out of town!

DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY, STOP ENABLING BAD BEHAVIOR!

By Max R. Weller

Read the latest news about yet another impotent effort in Boulder County, CO to mitigate lawlessness: Boulder prosecutor to work on issues with homeless community in the Daily Camera. 

Great! The small minority of homeless people who are violent sociopaths now have a DA dedicated to them . . . And the City of Boulder already has two police officers whose jobs are centered on the worst-behaved transients, Officers Ramos and Paddock.

So why won’t things get better? HELL, by all accounts it’s less safe now than ever before, and I for one refuse to go anywhere that is a popular bum hangout. Remember, the worst-behaved transients are generally preying on other homeless people they perceive as weaker; robbing, raping, stabbing, etc.

There’s a simpler, time-honored solution for dealing with transients caught committing petty offenses: Give the scofflaws a choice between being cited into court and getting on the RTD bus headed back to Denver. Police might even toss in a sack lunch to-go, as they watch to make certain the miscreants board the buses. Those $5 bus tickets on RTD are taxpayer dollars well-spent, and far less costly than putting more people into the local criminal justice system.
