Redding Record Searchlight, Politics & Death





At a recent city wide so called Safe City Project , with its leader April LaFrance , and interesting admonition was made, and Tweeted by a Redding Record Searchlight Reporter.

With the Good News Rescue Mission being the ONLY nightime rescue mission shelter in all of Redding and Shasta County California this fact, if reported... this crucial Tweet... if turned into a news story would rally the generous and caring community Redding has become, and positive steps surely would be taken that would change the dynamics of homelessness in our community, and quite possibly SAVE LIVES.

Not only that, If the facts and truth were released, to be ticketed by Redding Police Chief Robert Paoletti and his department for homeless sleeping now would be more than ever a very real violation of homeless persons civil and constitutional rights.

A situation here in Redding already determined to be cruel and unusual punishment in other California cities  by a Judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

Needless to say, in those cities positive changes were made, services added, lives saved....

Indeed one would think the Record Searchlight  /  Redding.com as a whole would be interested in the health, safety, and well being of our local homeless families, children, and veterans.

With temperatures that can dip to single digits in the winter here you would like to believe there is a news reporter somehow, somewhere with the courage and compassion to report on this crucial Tweet information.

Tweet information that Redding California's desperate homeless have long been painfully aware...

Dangerous Corruption in Local Redding California News Media Outlets ?




Its shocking that “Redding’s Good News Rescue Mission turned away 500 people last year.”

Especially since City Council member has heard threats of baseball bats against homeless and their camps.

Redding California city council person Missy McArthur receives messages from vigilantes wanting to go out into the homeless camps and send them a message with baseball bats.

Im getting calls, emails, and on – the street comments about this No.1 issue. Things like : “Let’s take some bats and show transients we don’t want them here.”

How does Redding California Police Chief Robert Paoletti respond ?

Seems a police and city official created dynamic hardly conducive to the health, safety, and well being of our local homeless men and women, as well as the growing numbers of our homeless families, children, and veterans.

And the worst part of all is other than a tweet from a so called ” SafeCity ” meeting by a relatively new reporter who momentarily forgot her marching orders no local news media would have ever reported it.

And its now clear to me the reporters of the multiple Safe City Record Searchlight series ad nauseam are deeply in the pockets of the homeless hatred crowd and have become nothing more than the mouth piece for Redding City Officials, and its ever increasing militaristic, seems to answer to nobody police chief.

Sure, like every year, homeless will die on the streets of Redding this winter from the extreme cold.

And you and other local news media outlets will do the usual tragic annual we gotta do something about this stories…

Has the so called “Safe City founder addressed this?

Noooo

Has our local news media addressed it ?

Redding Record Searchlight - Redding .com,  KRCR TV Channel 7 News, Action News Now ?

Noooo

Nor will you report on what could very possibly put an end to many of these needless tragedies if you would only stop the cover up and report the facts as you claim.

I quote your Tweet and admission from  Record Searchlight reporter Katie Gillespie,

That “Redding’s Good News Rescue Mission turned away 500 people last year.”



                                                 Redding and Shasta Counties ONLY night time homeless shelter.

"Redding's Good News Rescue Mission turned away 500 people last year."



Shocking news from the Good News Rescue Mission, Redding and Shasta Counties ONLY night time homeless shelter.


Reported at a recent town hall safety meeting in a Tweet by Record Searchlight / Redding .com News Reporter Katie Gillespie



To be ticketed by Shasta County or Redding Police for homeless sleeping now seems more than ever a very real violation of homeless persons Civil and Constitutional rights


'They have no place': Rousted, relocated, Redding's homeless have few choices.

"As the county's only shelter, the mission is scarcely equipped to handle its homeless population, said Community Relations Director Ken White.

"We're feeling extraordinarily overwhelmed by the amount of services needed by people in the community," he said. "If the economy worsens, or even stays as it's been, that could be a very at-risk population as a community I don't feel like we're very prepared to service at this point."

The mission has only about 120 beds, he said, but because staff members try to help everyone they can, up to 70 extra guests at a time often sleep on the chapel floor.

"There's a huge need," he said.

And the mission's 30-day time limit means it's hardly a solution to Redding's homelessness situation, he said".
