Transient Chickens In Alton Baker Park?

Alton Baker was another SVDP program location for 3 campers, including myself. Somehow, a few chickens landed up in the park, seen feeding with the geese and ducks. So I adopted them, fed them while hoping for a few eggs. I think I got one. But someone reported them to the police, a Eugene officer came with cages assuring me the chickens would go to a good home. Watching a police officer chasing chickens was so much fun! I helped him corner them--with chickens safely in custody--away they went.

Illegal camping is a pseudo-crime, it is a fictitious, concocted, false accusal of guilt, projected upon innocent homeless citizens by hired psychopaths. The public has been so thoroughly programmed that it's such a threat to their "quality of life" that it depends on them to report that "crime". The police power of coercion unequally, unfairly, and unconstitutionally enforces it. Judicial bias rules in its favor, upholding it. City Hall turns a blind eye to it--everybody's getting paid to look the other way, just putting in their time, until the end of the day when they can go home from work, and pretend it never happened.

The willful violator clause as I remember was put into place shortly following most of my determined resistance to being displaced constantly, as a homeless camper, as one trying to hold on to my jobs as a CNA/caregiver. This city and its silent code of exclusion made damn sure, that I could NOT stay focused!

Basically, by taking a firm stand against their anti-homeless ban, by refusing to move when ordered to do so, I gave them little choice but to cite me 8 times (I prevailed over half of them in court); in order to publicize their arrogance of power, and the futility of homeless "sweeps", and yes, to that tie up their police, and make the cost of enforcement as painful, and problematic for them, as it was for me.

Ever since I took on Mayor Torrey and called campers together in 1997-8 to join my large illegal car camp on W. 7th and Nolan St. the camp was finally forced by police to end, I was the last hold-out and was threatened with arrest--if I did not get on the program so I went to park next to the SVDP store on Seneca, my first parking program space.

I bought this little DIY 3D LED Christmas Tree Kit, through eBay before the holidays. They range from $3-$10 and are usually shipped directly from China. I thought it would be fun because I wanted to revisit my electronics past and build something using one of my favorite components, the light emitting diode, and to test my skill in fine soldering.

I am a seasoned kit builder from way back in the days of Knight-kits and Heathkits, and I am a very experienced electronics assembler luckily because this kit did not come with any instructions in the bag. The printed circuit boards are well designed, with each part # showing where it goes. It stands about 5 1/2" tall including battery holder base. Batteries, solder, and solder iron not included. Be very sure to observe the polarity of the capacitors, and the LED's.

There is, however, a set of basic instructions online here:
 being careful by noting there are several varieties and circuit configurations. This kit uses either 3 AA batteries, or it also comes with a USB connector for power. The tree worked the very first time I turned it on. I recommend it highly, it's fun to put together and watch.


These campers are not just under pressure to move to the next location, they are being told to get out of town--the police are just not finishing their sentence. They are cowardly little A-holes, and are going to continue to do this to prevent any establishment of a camp right up to when winter arrives. It is move out of town, whether they (cops) are verbalizing that or not.

I told ya they would do dirty tricks like that. Such low life, low moral characters, are these guys act like they never heard the one about, resistance to tyranny is no vise. In an earlier period of history they would have made good little Germans, loading their own mothers on to the rail cars to go to the gas chambers.

These campers are in fact, being told to get out of town, clearly a civil rights violation, that should be dealt with https://www.eugene-or.gov/.../Hate-and-Bias-Complaint... Doing so by someone at the the camp--ideally, they all should, be listed if possible--this will create a record of such a complaint, and its incident info. camper complainant name, an email address, and phone number. List the total campers present as additional complainants into the incident info..
Always inform the Eugene Police Department of possible crimes as soon as possible. Call 911 during a crime. Call 541-682-5111 to report a non-emergency crime situation. The circumstances surrounding each Discrimination, Hate or Bias activity are unique. A coordinate and sensitive response, tailored…

Use the Police Auditor Office civilian oversight,online complaint form, see the civilian protocols pdf I posted above for guidelines. You will be making a policy complaint (where the person(s), are dissatisfied with current policies or established services), and also a complaint for refusal for necessary services--such as, shelter referral information, legal camps or shelter. Overall complaint is against all EPD employees involved, on the day of this recent incident, and

as it was enforced on the day of incident, such as: the extreme daily hardship of the camping ban itself, plus the added burden of packing and being forced to move on very short notice to an unknown destination, impact on sleep, stress, PTSD, harassment, intimidation, threatening to impound and euthanize pets, threatening to impound personal belongings, including vital camping and food items, campers did not receive, but were instead refused necessary services, negative impact upon health and welfare of campers, the negative impact of the incident upon the community, disparate treatment, violation of constitutional and civil rights, excessive presence of EPD employees, plus any other problems. This may or may not work. It could be declined as unfounded, or EPD actions were found within policy, but try it anyway.

Another interesting read if you've got the time, to get a clear picture of the nature of every kind of complaints, and their outcomes. This is also my first exposure to how the office of police auditor works, and now I am really sorry I did not know this last time I was homeless, I would have filled complaints on my behalf. Please remember that no matter if your complaint is finally upheld or dismissed, they are retained for further use for statistics and trends, and the recording of our complaints is very important, and must be timely. http://www.eugene-or.gov/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/3806 From Office of Police Auditor, 2014 Annual Report, I see several service and performance complaints against EPD officers for not enforcing laws against illegal campers by citizens (RP reporting person), but few if any, from homeless campers against EPD. So successful complaints must first be presented in such a way that works within the parameters of the protocol. 

An example: Jan 2014 Service and Performance complaint Summary: RP was upset that when she was threatened with harm by the campers at "Whoville." An

officer showed up across the street but did not
contact her. Outcome:
Sgt. spoke with the officers who responded and learn that RP refused to walk over to officers who then contacted her and spoke with RP and others in the camp.

Another example: March 2014 Complaint Summary: RP has contacted EPD over 10 times about a prohibitive camping issue in her neighborhood. Outcome: Sgt. contacted the campers and explained the law and then spoke
with RP about the campers leaving t
he area.

**************I was totally unaware until now that this was taking place.; that citizens were, by going through the police auditor's office, easily able to file policy and service inquiries or commendations, upon EPD officers for delayed, or non-reaction of enforcement upon homeless campers. I had been under the impression all along, that this office only handled far more serious complaints. Although the police audit remains independent and neutral, you can see the potential for a leveraged effect, or incentive that officers wish to avoid, that would determine how those officers will react, which in turn, increases the likelihood of escalation right up to the use of force if necessary, upon illegal campers to evict them. In my mind, this changes the whole dynamics of everything; and that which is better able to force compliance with the camping ordinance, as a service to concerned neighbors in a community, generally will always turn into a disservice upon the homeless.

My Comments From FB Sept 1-5 2015

Believe it or not, you bet citizens would approve of last Saturday's fascist intimidation assignment--because they have been so media brainwashed for years, they don't see this as a waste, like we do, but as a rightful duty to protect and serve THEMSELVES from the embarrassing, "public behavior crimes"--and to remove from sight, all those witnessed being forced into doing rightful acts like all other humans, in public; and for relief from the disfigurement effect such homeless camps appear to have--it makes their eyes- sore. They (the tax-paying status quo, or sheeple) have never been against heavy-handed enforcement yet--they only object if they are told more taxes may be necessary for funding for more shelters, etc.

Remember, every poor person, every unemployed person, every camper, every panhandler, is evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors--the crime of the corrupted by bribery congress, and unbridled, false religion of destructive cult-like worship of capitalism, which is creating a two class society under feudalism, with masses of peasants, as the lowest of social class of serfdom.

It's like they're saying--Quick! Hurry up and hide the evidence of our treason and betrayal of the American people; hide the dying miner's canary that our visable homeless symbolize--get them out of sight before anyone catches on that they represent not individuals having stereotypical failures of character, but are instead, among the victims of these foaming at the mouth conservatives, and Libertarians, and Reganomics, that caused the absolute overall failure of privatization, deregulation of capitalism, and worship of billions of $ of dark money taking over our government, rejecting Christ, and mankind's rejected creator, thus today's severe inequality. Move along folks, there is nothing here to see!

These very same blinded sheeple, whiners, complainers, ditto-heads, and NIMBY's, who feel they are being tormented and plagued 24/7, with the homeless camped around them, thanks in part, to their blind leaders, are themselves, most responsible for having to look at so many "rogue" campers. They are getting just what they deserve--piles of garbage, homeless turds, and all! It is their own damn bigotry, selfishness, gullibility, and stupidity for believing the liar and his lies or false accusations against those who act with free willed, self reliance, , aimed against the innocent homeless. By their steadfast opposition to any rational, or long term solution, except these sweeps--they prolong the agony of the un-sheltered, unwanted homeless here. They are among the most irresponsible of our community members. They are instead, most comfortable when excused from any responsibility, or uniting to participate in any humanitarian problem solving, and when reassured by authority, that the problem is not in their own heads, but it is with the supposed, "mentally ill" among the campers themselves, who have traditionally been all along, the designated scapegoats for all of the city's ills. Most everyone refuses to be mindful of the predictive accuracy of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, or to believe that chronic homelessness itself, does cause a large percentage of mental illness--if you trust the DSM-5 codes.

It is like Judge Psychopath Stenard said to me, while looking down her nose, in so many words; Well, if you had just packed up your shit and moved on down the road to somewhere else when ordered by EPD to do so, you would not have been cited--ya, right you clueless bitch. If I listened to her, I'd still be totally powerless, destitute, owning nothing to my name, and still homeless on the fucking streets! Please! Try never to allow her to get into your homeless affairs in court, because: 1. your signature is not on her paycheck, and 2. she will do only what she does as a dedicated servant for the sake the city's hangmen of homeless guilt--persecutors, and legal guru, the Devil's Advocate--I call him Satan's little boy-toy. What? Do you think his Draconian camping ban came from above, as a divine inspiration?

The city's re-electable council politicians, pander to already burdened tax payers, because they live in fear of loosing votes and getting nasty emails. which they do tally. So the entire expense is now on the backs of the homeless themselves, generous donors, and our "home-grown, enemy terrorist" homeless activists, like you and I, who are seen only as pesky, unpatriotic protesters, interfering with the city's punitive, enforcement addiction of criminalizing what it refuses to fix: its facade image of civil and human rights, unrighteousness, and narcissism.

By the way, I just learned something new today, that there's such a thing as "positive and negative rights", and they are sort of abstract, yet important. I am still studying about them. The rights we seek are all dependent on these. Discussion for another time.

If it were not for Jana Thrift capturing this scene as limited as it is, because not only has the public not been shown this on TV anyway--to my knowledge--but we would not have our own documentation of this total Fraud, Waste and Abuse of power on video--sometimes referred to by myself and others--as an EPD circle jerk! So thanks Jenna, for posting this. I hope the OUR'S campers are re-settled, resting, and getting ready for the next games of quasi-governmental kickball, shelter keep-away, and anti-camper, whack-a-mole.

That is a great idea, however such an accurate or complete timeline may be difficult. Like I said earlier, for one thing, EPD does not want to incriminate itself by providing such statistics.or public records on their part. They would rather everyone forget the past like it never happened. We must all become our own homeless historians, carefully constructing our own narrative of such events and experiences ourselves, else they will do it for us, with whitewash. The more recent events can be searched on Google searches of homeless news, assembled from members of SLEEPS, OCCUPY, homeless action, local media Internet archives, police calls for service, etc. The larger, more reported camp removals of protesters, and downtown things will be easiest, smaller less publicized evictions of smaller remote camps will be more difficult without help from other observers, if we can find them. I did my best over the years to gather evidence of everything homeless related, I have many RG news clips, documents, yet to be scanned and compiled as pdf files for your download for safe keeping. Please be patient.

I know this is very difficult to do, but the OURS campers and their supporters need to keep a camp diary notebook, and record everything: camp members, names, dates, remarks by police, and if possible, recall and record how many times and locations OURS campers have had to move camp--and it is an inhumane amount of times, and there seems to no end in sight--I cannot say enough about the strength, fortitude, and determination of this group Keep a watchful eye and always keep a camera handy, for any possible off-duty officer in their private vehicles, acting as vigilante instigators, who may be stalking them where they go each time the camp is forced to move, or being spying on, or someone posing as curious bystanders, a disgruntled neighbor phoning in complaints, Neighborhood Watch, and so forth. It's possible there may be informants. EPD has been caught doing this in the past, as the late Mac McFadden revealed to me. This city does seem to have when called upon, willing vigilante type members besides the police, within the business and residential community, and our local media--at least they did, and such a last resort threat during a meeting I did not attend, was used against my camp, in 1997 if we refused to move--I think they were counting on me to refuse to move to the very end, though I have no idea where any witnesses of that meeting are, and have nothing to prove my allegation. Don't forget there are supposed to be complaint forms for community member complaints from Human Rights Commission against police misconduct, but you have to know what those violations of code of conduct are. EPD is also well known to occasionally not follow their own policies in such cases, counting on campers not knowing or not having their own copies of the exact laws about proper removal of illegal campers. We have Internal Affairs for what it's worth. PLEASE NOTE: I have a spare digital camera, a VistaQuest 12 mega pixels, 8x zoom, VQ9100 Sport, with user manual, that I would be happy to donate to the camp for their use, all it needs is the little SDHC card, I'll try to get one for it. which stores photos for downloading to a computer. Just ask. I am no longer using it.

Operant Conditioning This is what the city uses against the homeless, believing in its effect to discourage illegal camping. A large readable copy can be downloaded here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operant_conditioning

OMG! See also this page, while reading, think about every aspect of this abusive relationship between city government and the homeless population. The similarities are amazing, and helps us to understand the psychology which is being used against the homeless. https://en.wikipedia.org/.../Power_and_control_in_abusive...

I just saw the FOX news at 10PM. I am so f.--ing pissed. Implying that campers are a threat to the safety to the public is total fear mongering the public. But the safety and welfare of those campers does not matter a rats ass--God damn you, EPD and Eugene, you make me sick to my stomach, you bunch of fascist bastards! FASCIST, KNOW THYSELF! This is only going to get uglier, and more dangerous, and will interfere with the campers ability to think and react clearly, or to even care for their bodily needs. They are under tremendous pressure. Being hounded by these TV reporters who are also pro-bigot, and anti-homeless, will slant and frame everything truthful, and take sides with the city, against campers, is not helping them, either. The message being sent here, is that because the city can treat homeless people like shit, so that therefore, it's okay for everyone else to do the same by discrimination, to incite hateful public harassment, or God forbid--unlawful acts of physical violence or murder, against homeless persons by ignorant thugs, thieves, or gang-bangers, who are themselves, deranged, lawless, and full of hate. Remember those insightful Bumfights videos? From now on, if anyone suffers injury, due to this kind of action, it will be upon the city leaders' heads, just like the death of Mr. Egan was, for his exposure to hypothermia, and denial of shelter. And what do you suppose we will hear from our lame duck, mayor Kitty Piercy, who I am now calling out here, whose soul along with some others in top city management, run this city by being bullies, now belongs to the Devil and his Advocate, city attorney, Klein; she is twice a liar, who betrays the trust of so many poor citizens, in their city government. that she promised to represent, in order to get elected. Again she lied, saying the city does not criminalize the homeless; and it's she the mayor, who leads this unjust mentally abusive, abomination of immorality in the humanitarian decline and decay towards these homeless...Crickets.

Our Biased Laws Against Homeless

Whenever we read state and municipal laws or ordinances worded, "...pertaining to the "humane removal" of homeless and their campsites in recognition of the "social nature" of homelessness--this is code for social Darwinism! This orders the culling, ignoring, shunning, or eliminating the undesirable humans as a nuisance, as being equal to their involuntary bodily waste, their possessions, food, garbage--all of it becomes unsanitary refuse!
Environmental, garbage, or sanitation concerns are nothing but red-herrings.
In Nazi Germany round-ups of homeless, they were called 'a socials.

This is why I insist that all of our anti-camping laws which were written solely to persecute and criminalize the homeless, badly need to be rewritten For the homeless, instead of AGAINST them.
