If everyone in Eureka knows, Why is it…..
We all know prostitutes walk the street in front of the library in Eureka.
Maybe as many as 50% of the drivers in our city do not have car insurance. (In Los Angeles County 75% of drivers do not have insurance! Information from SB 60.)
We have a needle exchange program, but you can find discarded needles in front of Burger King and city parks.
People are illegally panhandling across the street from the Sheriff’s department.
People wander the 101 corridor crossing 4th and 5th disregarding crosswalks and without even looking out for cars.
Drugs are being used out in the open in Old Town.
There are hundreds of homeless people living behind the Bayshore Mall.
And yet Law enforcement and the public continue to ignore the reality of problems that seem to cross everyday people’s lives. This is not the Eureka I grew up in.
