People still behave badly

Our city has worked hard and diligently to clean up the streets of the abandoned grocery carts. Have you noticed how much nicer the streets look? The system is working! Except there are still people behaving badly, and I mean people of all walks of life.

For example, I saw two women nonchalantly walking west on Travis Boulevard with one grocery cart that belonged to Grocery Outlet. Inside the Grocery Outlet cart was one small plastic bag. That single plastic grocery bag appeared to have one item in it.

First, they stole the grocery cart. Second, the city has to round it up after it is reported abandoned. Third, you and I, the taxpayers, will pay to have the service of the city to round it up.

In another incident, I saw a woman pushing a Food Maxx cart loaded with large black plastic bags full of empty cans through a neighborhood. There again, the cart is stolen. If she abandoned the cart and left it on a street near her home, the same routine may happen.

Do we need to have a Stanley Roberts of People Behaving Badly on KRON drive through our streets and talk to these people?

    The authorities see all of this nuisance activity. Its also reported to them. Good citizens even gather physical, documentary and testimonial along with particular knowledge evidence in furtherance of the cop's public safety mission. And then the cops do nothing. They continually make horrible excuses and bemoan their "lack of resources". Local prosecutors and judges are complicit in all of this by creating a California magical fantasyland of endless second chances along with free everything for those acting irresponsibly! Worse, the people who complained and complained along with helping the porker cops are blamed!

    Stolen property? Call the police. For your city "leaders", it's not about solving a problem... it's about creating more government power, which they did when they created a new tax, a new bureaucracy, and when they let a new contract for a services provider. If the problem were solved, Alvina, there would be no need for this extra power... and the politicians and bureaucrats would have to give up some of their power. That will not happen. (You saw the other article today that there is a push to bring back Redevelopment, didn't you? Your local politicians want their power back.)

    Want to see bad behavior? Hang out at any school during pick-up/drop-off. Sit at any controlled or stop sign regulated intersection anywhere. Heck, just drive down any busy street. Manners, respect, safety and common sense have been replaced by apathy and st*pidity.
