What $160,000 dollars a year buys in contracts to ‘First Alarm’
by Razer Ray

Can you IMAGINE how many jobs… jobs for Santa Cruz youths could be subsidized with that amount of money?
And that $160K figure is JUST FOR ONE PARK!

This is occurring against a background of a massive youth unemployment, drug, alcohol and homelessness problem in a city that’s ignorantly and simplemindedly written off the causation of all social problems in the city to 'transients', the 'homeless', and ‘gang problems’, instead of the city ‘government’s unwillingness to see to the well-being of ALL OF it’s citizens… as it pimps it’s job and housing market to the more lucrative youth market overseen by the UC regents, which defacto controls those markets at the expense of Santa Cruz’ citizens.

A First Alarm Security 'guard' hovers over a man who was simply trying to rest alone on Louden Nelson Center park's lawn. The guard stood there without talking to his victim for at least ten minutes.
