Redding and Shasta County is suffering a homeless shelter crisis, and its police have been dispensing "cruel and unusual punishment" for years writing tickets for homeless "camping."
Martin v. City of Boise says cities can’t punish the homeless for sleeping outdoors or on public property.
We are Shasta County citizens opposing a 2020 ballot initiative to increase the sales tax to build new jails and or police ran detention rehabilitation centers.

Say NO to Anderson California police Chief Johnson and his proposal for a transitional rehabilitation center in Shasta County. Seems anything but Christian....even Anti Christ since a federal court affirms cities can’t criminalize homelessness.
“The idea of forcing homeless people into detention facilities through some kind federally led, law enforcement/military style effort is also inhumane and grotesque, and does not appear to have been thought out so hopefully that is not actually the strategy.”
Any good #news reporter would find this video of poor agitated #homeless soul Teddy Woodrow Abbie that died in #Shasta #County Jail Custody Interesting to say the least... https://t.co/ysrQkbscsF@GotNoPlace @KRCR7 @Mariafoscarinis @Ntl_Homeless @NLCHPhomeless @GavinNewsom pic.twitter.com/O4Jt188iYB— No New Tax For New Jail (@NoNewTaxForNew1) September 15, 2019
Say NO to Good News Rescue Mission having anything to do with a desperately needed new low barrier homeless shelter. It is believed the Good News Rescue Mission has become a political subdivision of the City of Redding.
Say YES TO A SALES TAX INCREASE for a compassionate long needed and overdue privately run SEPARATE low barrier homeless shelter from Good News Rescue Mission. Speak up at city and county council meetings, Write letters to the editor,save lives this winter !
