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?


Has our local news media addressed it ?

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


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.

    Church On The Hill
    We are all strong people, Born with free will
    Though the torture of life, Can be so surreal
    Many taking there punches, Fighting for whats right
    Still sometimes they lose, In winning the fight
    Often lost in the wonder, Of hearts in dis-spare
    Still if you ask, Many have stories they'll share
    Some are more common, Though not all the same
    They are runaways beggars, Even soldiers in vain
    Cast all out among us, Are those hiding in pain
    Some minds seen as weak, Just try and stay sane
    Many are proud people, Who have faced all kinds of shame
    Adoptive of life’s labels, As they were hung to their names
    Some trust only in God, As they wonder through the nights
    Searching for the answers, Hoping to make things right
    Hiding in buildings and darkness, Back alleys and cars
    Sleeping out in the open, While praying under the stars
    Covered by cardboard and leaves, Blankets or tucked hands
    Some have visions of missions, While trying to understand
    From the lessons in life, To just pure circumstance
    Even given no choice, They still dare dream to dance
    The homeless lining the streets, By day and by night
    As some reach out helping, With the struggles they fight
    Others are hoping and praying, Within all of their might
    Yet we stand here together, Lighting candles on this night
    For those who did not make it, Some once had a good life
    Listen as the bells ring, In remembrance of there strife
    With Gods undeviating love, Cherish all that's in sight
    And for those that still suffer, Let us pray in God's name
    That his love and compassion, Keep you safe once again
    As all life is precious, That was ever once held
    May God lead you and guide you, Beyond where life failed
    And for those that may not make it, Through this long cold night
    May you be found in heaven, In spite of life's plight
    May you be standing with God, In awe of his sight
    May your lives find new meaning, And still be fulfilled
    As we look for you again, At the church on the hill

  3. Redding is a sad joke! Corruption is rampant. We experienced it with the Carr fire! Media lies right to our faces, the whole town, oh well.......this corruption goes way too the top, the top of the six companies that control the media! Freedom of speech is a myth!!
