On Man Arrested for Masturbating on West Beach

One thing that that is never mentioned in these articles is that the detox attached to Casa used to be co-ed...and that it was a CADA decision to stop admitting women because, apparently, the waiting list for men was longer. Okay, but it's very difficult to get a woman to agree to detox for various reasons and sometimes the only opportunity you have is at that very moment...and when you have to make them wait until one of the north county detox facilities has an opening, then you lose that opportunity, and another woman remains in her own personal hell.
As far as Casa contributing to the Milpas mess...well, has anyone actually looked around that area? The homeless and other disenfranchised were hanging around down there long before Casa opened. Why? Because it's a crappy neighborhood. The further you go down Milpas the more industrialized, unattractive and...well, raggedy...the area becomes, and it's easy for unattractive, raggedy people to blend in there. Casa Esperanza is nothing more than a target for the Milpas haters who need an object to point their fingers at. That neighborhood has always sucked, and Casa provides a convenient scapegoat.

It may be only five years, but it's going to be five years of him getting what he gave. It's gonna feel like 50 by the time they're done with that attractive young man.

I agree. That's not self-defense. That's rage.

Well said, Hank. Many vehicle-dwellers know the benefits of keeping a low profile. As in: pick up your trash, fix your leaks, and don't pee in the street. And the most important one: sssshhhhhhhhhhhhh.......

Wow. Pretty unprofessional to just up and leave with no one standing by to pick up your caseload. What about all the clients you left hanging? You are staying true to form, it seems. The only people who support you are the ones who don't know any better. I've never heard a real professional have anything good to say about you...unless they were complimenting your ability to run off at the mouth and self-promote.
And paying a vanity press to put out your book isn't being "published".
