Engage the young. Talk to them, even if it feels uncomfortable. Especially if it feels uncomfortable. They may stink, they may be obnoxious and even a bit scary, but they are our children, and they need adult guidance - along with the occasional firm reminder that you shouldn't defecate where you sleep.

"For the past year, it turns out, Santa Barbara has found itself without an ordinance enabling it to take action against people who urinate and defecate in public. That’s because local courts began interpreting the laws in such a way that breaking them meant filing misdemeanor charges rather than infractions." Maybe it is time for said courts to rethink? Call them infractions, let the City Attorney prosecute, and simplify the matter?
As for the YUTs, what do you expect when a college education leaves you with $40,000 in debt that can never be discharged by bankruptcy, and no job? This society is eating its young. Any wonder they are restless?

I am happy to hear that someone is standing against police brutality. Even if the guy is an alcoholic, that does not justify beating him up and violating his civil rights.

Even if you legalize all drugs, that still leaves prostitution, racketeering, arms smuggling, smuggling of undocumented immigrants, car-jacking, and other unsavory enterprises for the gang members to engage in. Combine zero tolerance for gang activity with improved schools, respect for cultural differences, and more opportunity for legal jobs. Maybe then we'll move toward a healthier community.
