With the release of the news yesterday that OC County supervisiors have voted to spread the joy of housing the incorrigible drug addicted, mentally ill, homeless zombies from the Santa Ana Riverbed to Huntington Beach, allow me to put the entire governmental structure of our city on notice.
If you refuse to stand up to this insane plan, I will declare war.
Think I’m joking?
We already have a Police Chief that treats these criminal miscreants as honored guests, to the detriment of all who have to tolerate the behavior of these people.
There was a time when Huntington Beach police made it clear to these folks that they were not welcome to take up residence anywhere they chose to and impose their lifestyle on peaceful, law abiding communities.
Old School policing might get you a one way trip to Stanton in the back of a squad car. That was if you were lucky. The alternative approach was a no bruise beat down behind a shopping center and a stern warning to get the fuck out of town….fast.
And don’t come back.
If this situation is allowed to stand, I predict open vigilante warfare by the fed up residents of HB who, in the absence of any real police concern about the phenomenon, elect to take matters into their own hands.
This will quickly grow ugly and perhaps violent as the old school HB asskicking brigade emerges from decades of civility and takes to the streets to solve this problem in classic old school HB Fashion.
So lets get busy City Council. City Attorney Michael Gates. Police Chief Handy. This one is on you.
This is the time for action.
