  • homeless on Caroline street...

    We try to go to OC at least once a month...However...we dont go to the boardwalk that often.. the homeless people that hang out there. are quite intimanating. Couldnt the OC police patrol that section a little better...At least during the Peak season? OC is gonna get a bad rep for those and people will vacation elsewhere.....

    Having been there twice during peak season this year, I'm not sure you could put any more cops on the boardwalk or nearby.

      hmmm i guess that is true...but maybe more "diorderly conduct " arrests? just saying.... there are other places to vacation..and OC is not inexpensive either.. We have a condo there...so it doesnt cost us for a room..but i have seen what places charge for tourists...

        Check out the other thread about this. It really needs to be addressed. Contact the Mayor & OC City Council. It's easy to do online and you usually get a response. If you really have time; send in a letter to the Dispatch. They usually print them.

        I was in the restrooms that they are trying to annex and the whole room was filled with cigarette smoke, they were sleeping on the sink counters and the whole room smelled like a dump.

        we can get action if more people complain instead of the "somebody else will do something" mindset.

                  Omg, you're right. There was a big Paul Revere's ad on there claiming it's the "best family buffet in OC". Totally ruined my day when I saw that and repressed memories surfaced.

                          Thank God this problem is getting some attention: https://mdcoastdispatch.com/2018/05/...omeless-issue/

                          This situation has gotten out of hand and is worse by the day. IMHO, it's as critical as the wind farms to the appearance of our town, not to mention safety, etc. I am in touch with several OC Council members and have been adamant about asking for action on this.

                          If you feel the same way, please relay your thoughts to OC Government. It's easy and you can opt to have your message sent to all members and also the mayor with one click!

                            Thanks for that link, Jozo. The trouble with this problem is that there are so many legal issues. The homeless have so many legal rights, & it seems like the residents & tourists don't have as many. Organizations such as the ACLU are more than willing to step in & defend the rights of those individuals, their lawyers are trained in every aspect of blocking laws, or enforcement of laws, that might interfere with the rights of homeless people. Even when those rights affect the safety of others. I do hope that this problem can be solved, but I have a feeling that it's going to take a lot of work, & money.

                              Please name one legal right extended to the homeless that is not extended to you. I agree it is a problem that needs to be dealt with but homeless people have no more legal rights than the rest of us do. Some of us just don't agree with those rights.
