giving new meaning to Bum Fights

Story: After dark. Coupla Sheriffs partoling see a bum walking a dark country road. When questioned, he says he’s seeking agricultural employment. Sheriffs advise that there is less agricultural employment available after dark than one might think and can they give him a ride. Bum said he wants to go to MaccyD’s. Deputies take him there. And offer him money!

End of story? oh Hells to the no no:

“My colleagues and I are very unhappy about the implications of your office’s action in this case,” [Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg] said in a letter to Yolo County Sheriff Tom Lopez, the Yolo County Board of Supervisors and the Sacramento City Council.

Remember, there is an ex-bike path along that freeway that stretches from Bum-ville to Junkie-shire. Plenty for everyone. But no.

If I’da been thinking, I coulda seen this coming: ya build a profit point and of course ya gotta squabble over it.

Interjurisdictional Bum Feuds.

Maybe they’ll bus them back and forth like the casinos do old people. Payin’ $10 a head to ride. Lotsa ways to squeeze a profit point.

    You’d think YOLO County would be a little less uptight

    I must be tired. I didn’t understand this post at all, so I followed the link. Not being familiar with the roads, neighborhoods, city boundaries or county lines out there, I had to read the article twice to realize that the Yolo County deputies did a Bum Drop on Sacremento. Sure, they gave him a safe ride to where he wanted to go, protected his possessions, gave him money to buy some food, and even took him to his fav McDs, but they crossed the county line into Sacremento. Uh huh, now I get it. They did a +1 on another area’s deadbeat count.

    But I had thought all these Left Coast cities couldn’t wait to get more homeless types to move to their Sanctuaries.

    Don’t tell me the state capital doesn’t want crazy street pooper needle people like the other major cities in that golden state?? Or was it because the Deputies deposited a white guy on them, and they only want south-of-the-border types?

    But I still don’t see how a profit point plays into this. Homeless care has to be a massive economic drain on them.

    Next time take them to that cunt Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg’s house. Probably have to climb a fence to get in there.

    Sorry drew458; I should’ve made that inter-area part abundantly clear.

    Sure it’s a big drain on the whole, but there individuals and, increasingly, agencies and bureaucracies whose profit point and reason for being is *dealing with* the homeless /junkies. Not solving the problem, mind you, cuz if ya solve the problem then you no longer have the problem which requires yer ginormus budget and power.
