Only charged with burglary? Arent there a couple other applicable charges like forcible entry, theft or grand theft?
C'mon Tracy. Dismissing profit as crass score-keeping or as an exercise in self indulgence (ie your expensive getaway weekend example) presents a decidedlyh negative and possibly Marxist view of capitalism.
First and foremost, profit provides independence. For entrepenuers, profit provides independence from creditors and investors, independence from working for others, and the financial independence to take care of one's own affairs in whatever way one chooses.

I think you have material for compelling Op-Ed piece as well. There is a story here that needs to get out to the voting public, and to city leadership as they decide on things like putting homeless festivals in certain neighborhoods.
Councilman Steve Hansen lives in Mansion Flat neighborhood, doesn't he?
Apparently he has been inflicted by some strange disease since the election causing his voice to be muted. But you might want to start lobbying him to your side. Have a "taking back our neighborhood" festival to coincide with Mark Merin's grandstanding SafeGround events, and steal his press. Per the SacPD instructions, call the police every time you see something suspicious. A guy sleeping under a bush in the middle of the day is suspicious, isn't it.
There are politics at play here far beyond the underlying issue of homelessness. The organizers of "Dignity Village" in Portland (out by the airport by the way) are more about pushing for societal change than they are about addressing homelessness, and this is true for SafeGround as well. That is all well and good, but I am not sure you want your doorstep to be ground zero.
Raise some hell and you will have a lot people behind you.
Great article and reminder of what an asset the River Cats and Raley Field are to our area.
I took my 4 year old to his first game last week and it was one of those memorable father-son moments for both of us. He had a blast rolling down the grassy hill, playing catch, talking to the pitching staff in the bullpen and occasionally watching the game.
The other key is how friendly the staff is, day in day out, year after year. A sign of a truly well run organization that should be a model for many businesses.
