I am as liberal as they come. What I am NOT, is someone that wants to live surrounded by filth, crack-pipes, broken syringes, rotting food, human feces, discarded bike parts and mentally ill psychopaths. The beach in Venice is a joke; like it’s been for several years, since Mike Bonin was put in place. According to numerous police officers, HE is the problem, as the police are not allowed to enforce the laws. I have written his office many times. In fact, over two years ago, I was the one that suggested he look at the open acreage area near LAX as a potential location for the homeless, which is now being done. Having been a Disaster Relief and Emergency Medical volunteer in several third-world countries, I have personally witnessed solutions to housing the homeless. Just outside of Lima, Peru, there is an area called Via Salvador where 300,000 ‘homeless’ are allowed to live in an environment that is relatively safe and far more tolerable than what we offer in the City of Los Angeles. They have clinics, water dispensaries and basic sanitation. Enough is enough! It is time to put the years-long ‘studies’ aside and take action. Perhaps all of us should invite our friends to come and camp along Venice beach? Maybe when there are 15,000 tents sprawled across the beach Bonin will get the message. In the past year, there have been shootings, stabbings, fires, assaults, robberies and every type of crime associated with allowing the laws to be ignored. My home has been broken into and vandalized. I have been assaulted twice, now carry personal protection devices and have had to use them on several occasions. As Venice gets over 20 million visitors a year, huge revenue is generated for the City, but very little comes back to our neighborhood to help resolve the issues. Taxpayers have rights too! It is time for Bonin to GO and I will now do everything in my power to make this happen.
