David Busch is standing outside his tent talking to police about 8 am Tuesday morning, trying to get police to do a Citizens Arrest on the two-member Safe Team that operates in coordination with the Business Improvement District (BID).

Safe Team members have been reminding homeless sleeping on the street that they have to put their tents down and move on after 6 am.

Homeless and their belongings are suppose to be off the sidewalks between 6 am and 9 pm. Police have been lenient with the homeless in allowing them to keep many of their possessions on the sidewalk. A tent still in place is not acceptable. This is in conjunction with the Jones Settlement.

    These are not Homeless. They are transient gangs living in encampments targeting Venice residents.

    The BID Patrol are not the police. They are privately hired security guards who have no more legal authority than you or I do to enforce the law. Their job is simply to observe and report. That means that the only thing they can do if they see a tent up after 6AM is call the police. That’s it. They’re not the police.

    This wacko is all but channeling the ACLU. And that’s what the city scrapes and bows down to. David Busch will be appointed the new “homeless czar”.

  4. For all those who were saying BID was going to harass the homeless transients well here is proof that the homeless transients are the ones who are doing the harassing! https://www.facebook.com/illegalDumpingVeniceBeach2016/videos/649621812124136/
