This IS a kick aimed at the crotch of Santa Cruz' near-useless city 'council' for ignoring... refusing to deal with, the fact there are NO JOBS THAT PAY THE RENT in this city, and it's only going to get worse for the city's children as the ignoramuses with grad degrees at their so-called 'planning department's only REAL plan is pandering to transient cubie workers, who are typically, not affluent either.
Watching a teen at the so-called "public safety commission" council "hearing" plead that he and his friends had no way to make an income without selling jewelry, and would the city rather have them sell drugs, was on one hand heartwarming to see... that a teen would jack the council up with a BIG reality check, and on the other hand, heartbreaking.
