Or as they call it in Atascadero: Thursday.


It’s going to be a long…. hot….. summer. Watch the cities burst into flames.


Re-open the minimum security state hospitals and change the laws back to allow judges to commit people living on the streets and causing trouble to them. And this was before meth. Weed, alcohol, opiates, people can recover. Meth fries brains, permanently. Mental illness for life, but possibly mitigated somewhat by treatment with other medication. But they need to accept treatment and take their meds. If they don’t, state hospital. This is the ONLY solution.


Absolutely agree opispan. What kind of society are we to allow these people to fester in our midst. Why do some consider it compassionate to allow them to live in tents, parks, and creeks. It is appropriate to help the homeless regain their footing and provide temporary shelter. It is an abominable shame to ignore those that are mentally ill or substance addicted. They should be in mental health facilities.


Sounds like the Bum fighting season has opened,

Brawls at 10 am is a great look for Atascadero.


The hot season is coming up. That will clear some of them out.
