Skip to comments.Sacramento Woman Forced To Move Business Due To Homelessness Issue
Posted on 08/22/2019 6:17:48 PM PDT by Kaslin
California is quickly turning into a hell hole, if it hasn't actually earned that status yet. The areas that are particularly hit the hardest by state and local policies have been the cities of the Golden State. Look no further than this latest story out of Sacramento. A salon owner of 21 years recently had to move locations, not because of lack of sales or increased property taxes, but because the homeless population is simply out of control.
"I am angry about it as well. I wouldnt be relocating if it wasnt for this issue," Elizabeth Novak told Fox & Friends recently.
"When I come into work, Im never sure what I am going to walk into. Ive been broken into, I've had my glass broken, I clean up human excrement off of my doorstep every week, cups of urine, things like that," Novak said in a now-viral post.
"I have to fight off people to push their way into my shop, and are homeless and on drugs because you dont wanna arrest people for drug offenses," Novak said in the video directly addressed to California Gov. Gavin Newsom.
"I have compassion, I love these people, but Im not able to work at my business any longer," the business owner added.
"A lot of people are saying its a housing issue. Its a drug issue, Novak told Fox & Friends. "Ive spoken with a lot of law enforcement in my area and they all have the same answers. Their hands are tied, they cant arrest them, and a lot of people think arresting wont do much and it definitely will."
Novak's video can be seen here:
I hope she doesnt leave California.
California is going to have to purge it’s self.
The “wall” needs to be built on the southern, eastern and northern boundaries of Ca. Then the San Andreas Fault needs to be triggered!!!
Yes, Concerning the 50 Conservatives remaining in Ca., we will send in evacs first.
California is going to have to purge its self.
Nevada and Arizona have leaned more recently what Oregom an Washington learned first. California is Cancer. Idaho and Wyomings winters are not a cure
I could tell by her comments that she is a good lefty and has never voted for anyone but a Rat.
Do I feel sorry for her? Not in the least. I simply hope that she stays in CA and doesn’t come here to vote in the same crap she voted for there. She has no clue she is getting just what she voted for.
Democrats should be legally banned from leaving the crap holes they voted for. Because they will vote for the same thing wherever they go. They are like primitive people who strip an area bare and then move on to do the same thing in a new place.
Yea, it’s not about the weather. Take a look at Florida.
I realize the reverse condemnation law was intended on sticking utilities with massive liability for lawsuits, but the federal recognition of this vast blame shifting from those who refuse to maintain proper tree & brush clearance gets me wondering; why couldn’t the same law be used against cities, counties and courts?
The unlawful granting of public property to private individuals to use (and abuse) as they please causes direct harm to the citizens who have to put up with the piles of junk, drug paraphernalia and feces. It locks private citizens out of enjoying rivers and waterways as homeless encampments ‘claim’ it as their property, and insane court decisions back up those claims forbidding the enforcement of basic ideals like ‘no trespassing’, no squatting, no illegal camping, etc.
I’d love to see a series of lawsuits utilizing the reverse condemnation, the drug house confiscation, and 5th takings without compensation slapped against the local, state and federal governments. As the courts have repeatedly ruled, we can not force government to enforce their laws, but as they’ve made tools to punish public and private companies with the most scant relation to the damage, why not use those tools to reclaim our parks & streets?
Yes, she pretty much admitted that she voted the same merry band of nitwits responsible for creating this situation. Yet, shall we wager that she will continue to vote for Lefties?
Let’s cut the BS. Every American city,let alone most liberal run jurisdictions are complete sh*tholes. What are going to do about it? The answer is nothing.
Very much agree. She is a true child of that lovely state.
You just showed everyone here what an assclown FReepers are when they shoot off a comment without having watched the video. If you had you might have known she is a solid Christian who gave a pretty good testimony to Jesus Christ right on national TV.
Way to go.
This Bay Area conservative is going to vamoose next June. Good riddance.
Yes, I wonder.
I didn’t see that in the video. If there is a different video I’ll be happy to watch it.
You have an opinion and certainly can share that here. If you develop some manners I’m open to discussion.
But I don’t personally insult other posters that I disagree with, and I don’t take personal insults from other posters....like you. Act like an adult if you are interested in changing another’s opinion. You will not do it this way.
Don’t bother being nasty in another post to me. I will not read anything you write to me.
I heard a radio interview
With the Young lady,
The Video must be getting
Hit Hard,it won’t load.
Being a California native
It breaks my Heart but
I have plans to “Bail!”
This Problem will continue
and spread ,coast to coast.
I don’t understand the reference to Idaho and Wyoming.
californicate just needs a good 10.5 quake to solve their problems
>>> This Bay Area conservative is going to vamoose next June. Good riddance.
I left SoCal in 2015. Good riddance is right. Every political, judicial, cultural, consumer prices, housing, gasoline...name it...is so messed up its baffling. Just look at what San Bernardino has become and been like for 10 years easy. Its not hard to see where the rest of the state is going.
