2013: A Nasty Year Heavy With New Anti-Homeless Laws
Robert Norse
Some years back, I collected and condensed a bunch of the Santa Cruz conduct ordinances which especially impacted homeless people, street people, performers, and political activists. The last version can be found at under the heading "Deadly Downtown Ordinances - Updated". That version got some updating in the comments that follow this older posting, but some enterprising person has to make suitable modifications & additions given the recent amendments. In the hope that someone (perhaps me at a later time) will take on that task, here is an update, which, when combined with the "Deadly Downtown Ordinances" and the comments that follow there, contain most of the harassment laws used by the SCPD and Rangers downtown.
