Johnson skates, Thompson suffers!?

A piece about homeless-rights advocate Sean Thompson and his legal situation after the now infamous pie-hurling incident is in the Bee today.

To my mind, and likely that of most others’, the confrontation, where Johnson got pie and Thompson got a punch in the eye, should amount to a wash. Thompson got the worst of what happened at the school, so, Why not have the two guys shake hands and call matters even-Steven?

Consider the many levels of how unjust it would be for Thompson to get tagged with a felony, and spend some portion of a year in jail, while Johnson, Sacramento’s absent mayor, skates away unfazed.

Johnson is currently not earning the money he takes home as mayor. If the city council had proper respect for the citizens of the city, and the money that comes to the city from these citizens, through taxes of various kinds, they would impeach and convict Johnson and boot his lazy ass out of City Hall.

Johnson has been a catastrophe as mayor on many levels. Something like half the “work” he has done as mayor has been promoting himself and using assistants as laborers for Johnson’s advancement nationwide.

As of now, certainly, Johnson has disgraced himself on the local AND national stage. He has NO political future. But, since he greatly aided Kings’ ownership in stuffing hundreds of millions of dollars in their pockets, his future is secured. I would guess that Johnson will get some cushy job with the Kings or the NBA or somewhere, paying $10,000,000/yr.

Now, sure, Johnson won’t have the job for long, but he will pocket millions for three years or so before fully disappearing from public view.

The most-major reason that the Thompson-Johnson situation is a great injustice – even, just, as matters stand right now – is that Johnson has a history of just buying the silence of young females whom he’s sexually accosted. He avoids the scrutiny of the Justice Department, altogether, wholly because he is rich.

Thompson is homeless. He is dirt poor. The “justice” of an unjust legal system lands with full force on his head. It is an outrage. It is disgusting. It is unfair – un-just – to a spectacular degree.

It is known that pedophiles – men who force sex upon children – often have fifty to one-hundred episodes of forced sexual encounters that go unreported. These encounters are unreported because the violated girl (or boy) or a parent doesn’t want the child to endure the humiliation of a court trial on top of the humiliation of the episode when the child was abused.

According to the yellodyno website:
Pedophiles have a strong, almost irresistible, desire to have sex with children. The average pedophile molests 260 victims during his/her lifetime. Over 90% of convicted pedophiles are arrested again for the same offense after their release from prison.
There is no reason to suppose that Johnson or anyone else in Sacramento has abused a child that hasn’t come to the attention of the District Attorney’s office.  But we all should be aware that the problem of sexual abuse of children is, generally speaking, a much, much more-serious and -traumatizing problem than what the public perceives.

More Homeless Hate from Marcos Breton

There was a long spell a handful of years ago when Marcos Breton said something so fully ridiculous in one of his hateful screeds against homeless folk that it appeared to be very apparent he had been taken off the Homeless Beat by his superiors. Unhappily, after a few months, Breton was again writing disparaging columns about homeless folk

In today's Bee [3/5/17], Breton has written one of his longest columns. Online, it is titled "The price downtown Sacramento is paying for Mayor Steinberg’s homeless crusade
Read more here: It goes on for days. The message, essentially, is this: Homeless people poop; they're getting a great deal of what they want from the overmuch-helpful mayor; and business people proximate to Chavez Park are made miserable by the forever-disgusting homeless that are there in great number.

O.K. Let's get into all this a bit. Except in Breton's mind, homeless pe…

Allen Warren, hero of the homeless. Jeff Harris, misanthrope.

Councilman Allen Warren did something controversial -- that should never be controversial -- at Tuesday's Sacramento City Council meeting. He proposed that there should be a moratorium in some places in the city, allowing homeless folk to camp. This, according to an excellent piece in today's [1/12/17] Bee -- titled "Warren seeks temporary OK for camping in the city" -- written by the always-splendid reporter-extraordinaire Ryan Lillis.

What a wild idea! Instead of having things as they now are, which effectively disallows homeless people to exist, Warren would like for some places to be designated that would allow camping.

Councilman Jeff Harris, in sharp contrast to Warren, said at the meeting, that he "would never support losing our camping ordinance."

Quoting the article ...
"I'm not sure (Warren) has analyzed the situation thoroughly," Harris said. "I have to say I feel the camping ordinance is a management tool. It gives the police…

The first-person dimension of homeless Sacramentans suffering from Schizophrenia

"Disabilities and dysfunction process from having been shunned and denied access to needed opportunitites and networks of support."
~ the brothers Lysaker in Schizophrenia and the Fate of the Self What is schizophrenia? How many are homeless Sacramentans?

Perhaps 15% of the Sacramento homeless population suffers from schizophrenia. The percentage is difficult to determine for many reasons that branch from both the fuzzy definition of the malady and that many people within the homeless community who have the illness (1) are in denial and are undiagnosed and (2) have the illness as a diagnosis only – the disability can be faked by people who are successful claimants of social security and other benefits.

What is schizophrenia? One webspace gives us this definition: The most chronic and disabling of the severe mental disorders. Typically develops in the late teens or early twenties. The overt symptoms are hallucinations (hearing voices, seeing visions), delusions (false beliefs ab…
