    That's actually a vagrant's tent being washed down the SDR come winter.

    Sprinkling out here in the county, I was supposed to run the tractor today on an area contaminated with human feces. Hope it really rains later, run some of that bacteria into the ground. Would probably be good to remove a layer of soil there too...

    I'm blown away that we're all (you included - any public service division for that matter) right in the thick of this. Not even PPE helps avoid contamination. Seems as though we're just fooling ourselves and keeping the issue at bay.

    Things are going to get even uglier in a few more months. Once this next economic downturn takes hold, and a few million more junkies have to decide between rent and the good stuff, the real flood could be on us.

    I'm seeing more tuberculin needles, Spice and Fentanyl in our future. Not to mention, more tents on the sidewalks.

    More piles of whippets on our roadsides, more hepatitis outbreaks, more machete wielding yahoos being shot by the cops, more kids dying from IVTD's and off market vape products, more people having "accidents" falling into traffic...

    It's been here for years. Its just now getting a high amount of media attention. And its only getting that attention because people in the upper tier of society are complaining and threatening.. mostly because they cant have it occuring in their neighborhood or on their street. "He's yucky and he's laying on my lawn.. I think he might be dead so you need to come get him." No, he's not dead and you know it.. the problem is simply that you don't want to see these people in your neck of the woods because it offends you. But its okay if they go somewhere else and sleep or pitch their tents.. again, just not your neighborhood.

    Speaking of neighborhood homeless invasions, wait until the trolley starts running into La Jolla. Those residents are in for a HUGE awakening. The crime rate will shoot up like a bottle rocket and the emergency services combined call volume will increase beyond the capacity to handle the calls in a timely fashion. La Jolla residents will finally get to experience for themselves what the rest of San Diego south of them has been experiencing for years.

    What I find most interesting about the local homelessness "crisis" is that no one is really willing to do anything about it.. until one morning they themselves wake up at home and discover a transient sleeping on their own front lawn.. then all of a sudden it's an issue.

    If you're serious (I can't tell), you're right. PD won't be able to accomodate the volume of calls from the citizens because of the influx of riff-raff that the trolley will bring in. The transients see the opportunity as "fresh meat" and will be inundating the UTC/UCSD area intersections, shopping mall parking lots and area Starbucks moments after the inaugural trolley passes through. I wonder how UCSD Thornton and Scripps La Jolla ER's are going to deal with it.

    The UTC area is filled to the brim with wealthy kids that attend The U. Right now, they pretty much walk around on the streets unhindered - even in the dark hours - I see it all the time. They've become so complacent, they never look up from their cell phones to see who or what is coming at them. Easy targets for opportunists that have plenty of practice from doing it Downtown.

    UTC is going to see more vehicle break-ins, more theft, more strong arm robberies, more panhandling, obviously. And for the first time, that community will experience the same tent and shopping cart epidemic that the southern district has been living with for years. La Jolla will get priority though because places like Downtown are now considered a lost cause - there will be no recovery for downtown. La Jolla is where the key players live. I think they will be taken care of.

    You know at one point she said she wasn't serious and anyone who took her serious was basically stupid, she said.
