  1. Why aren’t the CL cops enforcing the housing ordinances which bar dozens of unrelated people living, typically illegal aliens, in the same flop house or apartment?

    Some of these joints house so many, parking is quite a problem for the ordinary citizens.

    The laugh is that the poor illegals pay exorbitant ‘rent’ for their lodgings!

    Won’t dear Llavando take some of ‘;em in?

  2. I’d rather the police focus on fellow motorists who are transporting open alcohol, drugs or who are speeding and don’t have insurance than a bunch of folks and where they sleep.

  3. Just another dog and pony show meant to impress the tax paying public.
    Police should be enforcing the law everyday,
    nothing special about SS.

  4. Why would police enforce housing? It should be the building/zoning department for housing issues. They would also be a part of health and inhabitable situations. (aren’t there ordinances public health regulations addressing number of bedrooms per number of children and total occupants) I think at one time Cary Fire worked together with building inspectors and checked suspected multi-people addresses for safety issues; dangerous use of power cords(too many plugs into extension cords, coupling together extension cords for multi-plug use, finding cords draped over sinks, etc., smoke detectors, as well as safe exterior stairs, decks and handrails to support all the people.

  5. No actual DUI’s, but 4 citations for electronic devices. Worse than drunks, but with a fraction of the punishment.

  6. Does anyone have the breakout of the ‘revenue’ distribution from these citations?

    How much to the judge, county, recorder, circuit clerk, city?

  7. Big deal. Agree with Honest Abe. If this was a “grant program”, complete waste of state taxes to pay for overtime expenses that did nothing to benefit CL.
