Sacramento Cop Offering Bus Ticket to Homeless Caught Brutalizing Someone Next Night

For 72 days an occupation in front of city hall in Sacramento has challenged the city of Sacramento’s unconstitutional ordinances on public sleeping. Everyone has a right to rest. This has been upheld by the DOJ which agreed that criminalizing public sleeping, unconstitutionally punishes people for being homeless.

The encampment has been attacked by the police on multiple occasions. One night 52 cops in riot gear stormed the encampment and arrested seven people camping. On other occasions they have stolen tents port-a-potties and other camping paraphernalia.

Most recently the police were filmed offering one way bus tickets to the city of Lodi to the homeless people camped in front of City Hall. Community activists and organizer Christina Arechiga was present and captured officer Ellis trying to entice a man with a one way ticket to Lodi, CA. The officer was defensive and I doubt she was prepared to be called out on something that she probably thought was a wonderful gesture of kindness and goodwill. I know I always get the warm and fuzzies when people dislike me so much they spend other people’s money to try to send me away.

This officer who says she is helping by providing bus tickets to nowhere California didn’t take long to reveal her true colors. The next night officer Ellis was filmed as she shoved a man named Mo to the ground. I guess that’s what you get when you don’t leave town.

James(Faygo) Clark a local activist and member of the homeless community had this to say about the situation at the Sacramento city hall.

Sacramento PD, under orders by Sacramento city council, has continued to violate our constitutional rights. They are arresting people for sleeping and confiscating property if you are not with it, or have it with you too long. there have been nearly 20 arrests and loads of supplies taken. We are unable to retrieve property, unless we have a receipt, which they refuse to give us when confiscating property.

I have personally travelled north from Fresno to participate and support the community dinner project  as they endeavor to support those who are in desperate need of clothes, food and shelter. If you are from the Sacramento area and would like to get involved with the community dinner project join the group on Facebook.  If you are not in the area but would still like to help. Please consider making a small donation to their GoFundMe campaign. All proceeds go to keeping the community dinner project running.

The community dinner project is currently seeking:

1) new water containers
2) reusable dishes (plates, cups, bowls, utensils)
3) new storage bins
4) clipboards for information
5) banner for table
6) storage for food/supplies
7) large sturdy baking pans
8) new trash/dishes/compost bins
9) copies of fliers/information to pass out

If you are available, any and all help is appreciated.
