Thu May 23 2013 (Updated 05/25/13)Video of Take Back Santa Cruz Supported Clean Team Harassing Homeless
Thu May 23 2013 (Updated 05/25/13)Video Shows Clean Team Member Threatening and Prodding Camper with Trash Grabber
On May 12, writer Jeremy Leonard re-posted a video to YouTube of a member of the Clean Team threatening and harassing a homeless camper in Santa Cruz as he and others did one of their regular "clean-ups." The video and a long interview Leonard did with former Clean Team founder T.J. Magallanes was only up very briefly on the internet before it was taken down, as reportedly there were numerous threats made against Leonard.
Subsequently, Leonard indicated that he took down the video from YouTube because, even with faces and voices disguised, he was getting too many threats.
The video sparked public outrage, and Robert Norse writes: "My concern is increased reports of violence, hostility, discrimination, and police abuse against homeless people for simply being in public space--like the homeless camper in the video was."
