We’ve had 3 homeless related homicides that I can recall in the past 12 months inside the city limits. The last two, was yesterday and last week. And stabbings, wow, stabbings are off the charts! This place is going to the bums. Seems like we have something really bad happening every week. And of course we are the one’s picking up the tab for all this chaos and violence. Last week a woman was murdered and last night the police had to shoot a homeless guy who attacked them with a knife during an attempted burglary.
These crazy bums are ruining Chico and the only thing that brings them here is the fact we have been treating them to free meals, plenty of spare change and free lodging. They sure are not coming for employment.
It sure would be nice if the Chief of Police got on the ball and started to do some proactive police work instead of waiting around to pick up the pieces after the fact. His men/women want to do something, but the need leadership that brings forth a coordinated effort. So far that part has been missing.
There is a city council meeting every month folks, maybe you should start showing up and voice your opinion?
