San Diego Opening ‘Safe Sleeping’ Site for the Homeless – A Sea of Tents in a Parking Lot

The city of San Diego in California is opening ‘safe sleeping’ sites for the homeless which are basically small tent cities in parking lots. This might be a bit warm in July.

To their credit, the city is doing this because they recently banned camping in public spaces. The ban goes into effect in about a month.

Still, to the average onlooker this has problems written all over it.

San Diego opens first ‘safe sleeping site’ tents for homeless people

The first of two “safe sleeping” areas for the homeless in San Diego opened on Thursday as part of an effort to move people off the streets in the California city.

The plan was originally announced in June that the city’s Homeless Strategies and Solutions Department would expand its services to combat the ongoing homeless crisis by offering different living arrangements.

“We are bringing forward a comprehensive shelter strategy with detailed proposals for the short, medium and long terms that include expanded shelter, more safe parking and safe sleeping offerings,” San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria said at the time.

Almost one month later, a new tent campsite behind a barbed-wire fence opened at San Diego’s Central Operations Yard at 20th and B streets. City officials are planning to pitch as many as 136 tents with the capacity to hold approximately 150 people in an effort to move them from downtown areas.

The mayor proudly tweeted about it:

Not everyone is impressed.

The homeless problem in certain parts of the country has been allowed to explode in recent years.

Putting up more tents is just a temporary fix.

    Don’t be fooled. This is nothing more than the communist’s idea of low-cost housing. Meanwhile, comrade Gloria is looking for pats on the back, and the stupid demokrats in this city bend over backwards to give them to him. This is not what they would call a temporary fix. When the communists are done, no one will own anything. These tents and cots are government property, and there’s a price tag attached.

    So they made them move. Big deal. It did nothing for the problem. The problem is that (mostly) democratic politicians still cater to them, allowing them to continue. The parking lot will be a cesspool shortly
