  1. Watch FUTURAMA’S Cartoon Series Season 6 Episode 12 The Mutants Are Revolting. This is how our current mayor and counsel thinks and treats our homeless population they have created. PHONY DO-GOODERS

  2. Our city’s homeless population especially on our East side is out of control. They generate 40% of the reported 911 calls. Their population is made up of the drug addicted, mentally conditioned who have long criminal rap sheets. All our mayor and counsel do is to throw resources at them even making our city court judges drop their charges over and over. This same mayor and counsel controlled city court judges continue criminal case after criminal case stacking 8-16 unpunished incidents so it pays to do crime in our city. Our mayor and counsel create cancer in our town, just look at the Grant/ Alvernon area (all the businesses are pulling out). But hey lets spend all our monies down town so our UA students can over drink and eat, ride that trolley for free.

    • Welcome to Tucson, the liberal bastion of southern AZ. So glad I moved, ILLEGALS, homeless and lack of police presence in the east central area of the city are absolutely inexcusable. And it will get worse. Where are the dumed ILLEGALS going to live and work to make money. Oh, wait, the city and county will pay for them as the services the LEGAL taxpayers recieve continue to dwindle. You get what you vote for and Tucson, you deserve what you have.
