Ventura Promenade “Clean-up”


by Paul White

A Venturan was walking on the promenade early this morning where Mele was killed.  One city rep was walking with a reporter.  At one end was a big work crew who’d just finished cleaning up the trashy promenade.  There was a group of five other cops patrolling, and three more in squad cars driving up and down. Not surprisingly, there were no homeless in sight.  (You remember during the Rio Olympics, the police were found to be cleaning up the streets by shooting vagrant children and throwing them in dumpsters). 

At any one time Ventura PD usually has a maximum of 10 officers on duty, which means that the Police Chief’s idea of how to improve Ventura, is to let 99.5% of the population (110,000) be protected by one-two cops.  And as soon as the cops would have left the Promenade, the homeless would have come right back.  

The chief and council don’t get it.  A once-a-year military presence in Ventura, unless the laws are changed, won’t do anything.

    As a resident of Santa Paula I am witnessing a direct effect of the tragic incident involving Mr. Mele. These reactionary efforts initiated by the residents and law enforcement of the city of Ventura have set in motion a domino effect that extends beyond the city’s limits. In regards to recent headlines it appears as if The Homeless have either gone into hiding or “packed up and left town”. Both of which i believe to be true. Based solely on personal observations, there has been a noticeable increase in unfamiliar faces amongst Santa Paula’s known homeless subcommunity.
    The “run them out of town” mentality is the usual response to a tragic and unforeseeable event such as what happened to Mr. Male. In truth it may prove successful, to an extent. Simply “running them out of town” can be obversely viewed as “forced onto others.” Which, in my opinion, is not a solution to the undeniable issue that is Ventura City’s leniency and statutes regarding it’s prominent homeless population.
    To those that may feel differently than I, I say this: My own biological mother is amongst Ventura City’s homeless population. I have no animosity towards her nor any others.
